Video & photos of the actual doll! We are so excited to share our sneak peek of the brand new American Girl Historical Doll – Caroline Abbott.
We welcomed her home tonight and couldn’t be happier to have her with us.
Caroline lived during the War of 1812 on the shores of Lake Ontario. She loves sailing and obviously faces many challenges living during wartime. The British even capture her Father and he becomes a Prisoner. Caroline is gorgeous with beautiful long curly blonde hair. We love her!
The doll releases on September 4th, 2012 – 200 years after the War of 1812. Caroline Abbott will also have a 6 book collection sharing her adventures during the War of 1812.
Girls who love Colonial American will love Caroline. Kenzie and I are officially members of The Daughters o the American Revolution so we especially dig anything from the 1700′s to 1800′s. We’ll start reading the book immediately tomorrow – Kenzie can not wait and she was paging through the book tonight before bed.
Take a peek at our first look video review of American Girl Caroline Abbott below:
Here are more images of the doll up close.
You’ll notice as you peek underneath her dress, she is wearing “pantaloons” – which are this basically old fashioned underwear. My kids were really impressed with this feature!
As you can tell Kenzie is absolutely in love with her – she also has plans to take her to New York City on our next trip there to get her ears pierced. So cute!
When an American Girl box arrived from Fed Ex tonight at dinner Kenzie, Kyle and I were all screaming with anticipation as we couldn’t wait to open it all up to see this brand new doll. And I profess, getting Caroline early in advance of her September 4th sale date added to the excitement for all us!
Here’s the press kit and cover of the book.
More love for Caroline as she takes a tour of our backyard and deck tonight.
Other accessories planned for Caroline Abbott include her skiff. Very cool!
Also, a parlor set and beautiful fancy outfit as shown here.
These are some images from my press kit. You’ll notice Caroline sailing with her Dad – I presume this is before he is captured by the British.
Another image includes British soldiers in the background.
Disclosure: Thanks to American Girl for sending us this sample doll in advance of the release to facilitate our reviews. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
