Ever since they started to love American Girl dolls, when January rolls around my girls get so excited to hear who the next “Girl of the Year” will be. This year when American Girl announced the 2019 Girl of the Year: Blaire Wilson I couldn’t wait to have my girls read her story, because I knew they would connect to her story more than any other year. My daughters are very different from one another and Blaire’s story connected to them in different ways.
Today we’re sharing a bit about Blaire and a chance to WIN the doll!
The story of his year’s Girl of the Year: Blaire, lives on her family’s farm in New York’s Hudson Valley. She loves spending time with family and helping with their new wedding planning business. Blaire enjoys helping on the farm and loves time in the kitchen. Throughout her story, you see her navigate friendships, a new food sensitivity and even managing screen time.
“What I like most about Blaire’s creativity is that she uses it not just to express herself but also to connect with people…and create connections between others, too.”
—Jennifer Castle, author of the Blaire series
One of my girls would love to live on a farm and the other loves hosting parties. One loves cooking on her own and the other has the same food sensitivity as Blaire. Both love family time and recently visited the Hudson Valley in New York, so like I mentioned above – lots of connections for my girls.
As a parent, I love how hard American Girl works on their Girl of the Year and her story. They keep the stories interesting and relevant to the year. Blaire’s story shows the importance of balance, self-expression, and meaningful relationships. These are things I want my girls reading and talking about!
In addition to a great story, Blaire Wilson is an adorable doll with a great collection of clothes and accessories. That’s the other thing my girls noticed about Blaire right away: “we want these clothes in our size! Blaire likes the same clothes we do!”.
They love the animals and gardening! It’s making us all pretty excited for spring to arrive.
Don’t forget: the American Girl “Girl of the Year” is only available for one year. So enjoy all of Blaire’s collection while it’s here. We are hoping to make a visit the the American Girl store in New York City this year to see how they have Blaire’s collection set up.
