Caroline, The New American Girl
Caroline Abbott, American Girl's new doll
The American Girl company has finally come out with a new doll and her name is Caroline Abbott. For American Girl fans, this is a real treat, since she brings with her a historical story from the War of 1812.
Caroline Abbott is a 9-year-old girl who lives in the village of Sackets Harbor located in New York. Her village is right by Lake Ontario and she loves spending time on the lake sailing with her father.
She is the 13th doll to be added to the American Girl Historical Character list and she has long curly blonde hair and aquamarine eyes. The doll can be purchase in October through americangirl.com. The cost of the doll is $105.00 and she comes with a paperback book, Meet Caroline, and is fully dressed in an empire-waist pink dress, ribbed-knit stockings and pink shoes. The set also includes her bonnet and purse.
Her life changes when her father is captured by British soldiers. Her biggest dream, to become a captain, suddenly becomes true in part when Caroline and her mother are now responsible for running the family shipyard.
There are a total of six books which includes:
Caroline's Secret Message
A Surprise for Caroline
Caroline Takes a Chance
Changes for Caroline
This is a great gift to consider for the upcoming holidays which includes a beautiful well made doll and an opportunity to learn more about life in 1812 and US history.
