Every little girl dreams of getting an American Girl Doll. Moms love them also, because they are of the highest quality in every way. They provide a terrific learning experience, as every doll has a story. While they are expensive, they are well worth every penny, and they are built to last. (American Girl also offers a doll hospital for needed repairs.)
Molly McIntire comes from the 1940s. She is nine years old, and lives in Jefferson, Illinois. The book that accompanies her tells of life during World War II, when all Americans were at work to support the war effort by growing Victory Gardens and collecting scrap meal. Molly feels the true impact of the conflict when her father enlists in the war. Molly and her friends do all they can to be patriotic citizens, and they learn important life lessons.
My little girl received Molly as her first American Girl Doll, and she was thrilled. Molly wore glasses just like she did, and was cute as a button. The doll comes in an adorable sweater and skirt, complete with bloomers, hair ribbons for her pigtails, white socks, glasses and shoes. Her accessories can be purchased for $20.00 and include her navy blue beret, her special locket, a steel penny, a red purse, and an embroidered handkerchief. She is a beautiful brown-haired girl with a perky smile.
Many additional accessories, outfits, and books can be purchased for each doll. I love American Girl Dolls because they are not only fun and collectible; they are also very educational. Who could ask for more?
