American Girl Kanani Giveaway

I am SOOO excited about the American Girl 2011 Girl of the Year, Kanani Akina from the lush tropical paradise of Hawaii. Here we are enjoying her story at bedtime. Aloha style!

Kanani’s story is all about sharing the Aloha Spirit and she is a gorgeous doll.  Her best feature is this ultra long hair that is just beautiful. And we’re giving a Kanani Doll away to one lucky reader! Entry details below.

I also really love her beads and having gone to Hawaii for my honeymoon this entire doll makes me sentimental and wistful wishing I could return to Hawaii again!  Despite the doll’s beauty, as you’ll see from this video, my 5 year old Mackenzie is most interested in the story – which really is the heart of American Girl. This is the first American Girl storybook we’ve ever read and my  Mackenzie is enthralled by the book. We are half way through me reading this “chapter” style book aloud to my daughter and she can’t enough of it.

Isn’t she beautiful?

Available for only one year, Kanani will launch with two books that tell her story, a beautiful 18-inch Kanani doll, and an array of fun accessories.

To further engage girls, American Girl is introducing a national campaign in support of Kanani and her story’s inspirational message, including interactiveKanani retail events, Kanani and Me E-cards, and a partnership with the National Wildlife Federation® (NWF), a national nonprofit that has more than 70 years of experience fostering a connection to wildlife and nature in Americans of all ages.

Entry details are below – each counts as one entry! Contest ends January 22nd, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST.

She would be so excited to have her!

  182. candi danner says:

    i have been wanting 2 order american girl dolls for my 2 girls for awhile now but its so expensive when u have 2!!! everything i buy is in 2’s,so it doubles the expense. if i won the beautiful kanani(we r big hawaii fans also) i would only have 2 buy one,which means i could afford it a lot sooner. my youngest actually really wants this doll!!!!!<3

    I would love to win Kanani for my daughter, we just received the catalog w/ her(Kanani) on the cover last week and my daughter went CRAZY over her. My daughter’s favorite color is blue, so when she saw the beautiful long hair and the blue dress that’s all it took. She loves animals too, so I’m guessing she would LOVE to read Kanani’s books together. I think it’s really great that they are bringing the plight of the Monk Seals to the public eye, WTG American Girl!

    My 9 year old daughter *really* wanted her first American Doll for Christmas, and while that didn’t happen, she is still holding out hope that it might happen this year. When I found out that in one of her story books, Kanani rescues an endangered seal, I thought that this doll would be especially meaningful to my daughter who loves animals and is always rescuing them!

When the new American Girl Doll came out she was so excited because Kanani is so beautiful and best of all lives in Hawaii. She takes wonderful care of her present doll Lani and even has tea parties with her little brother wnd her doll. She would be so happy to win Kanani.

  265. Colette says:

    I want to win Kanani because I am also of Native American heritage. There are very few well-made dolls of indigenous decent out there and Kanani would be perfect. In her books, she says she is half Japanese/native Hawaiian and half white- I’m also half white and half native! Kanani would be perfect.

    My only daughter (after 3 boys) is turning 8 this month. We made a special trip to the AG store in Denver last weekend and she got to see her up close. We both thought that Kanani was beautiful and loved her hair but my daughter knew that she could either get a doll or accessories for her birthday- not both. She decided on accessories since she had got Elizabeth for Christmas. I know that Kanani would be a much loved addition to her little family of sisters.

    I would like to win Kanani for my daughter. 2010 was a tough year starting with her father and I getting a divorce and ending with my near death due to pneumonia (I was in a coma for a week.) and her father’s very near death due to an unexpected torn aorta, blown vaulve, and anerism of the heart. She sacrificed her whole winter break to sit in the hospital with her dad and then help care for him when he returned home. Thankfully, he is recovering, but this still adds a lot of stress on my daughter as well as even more responsibility. She adores Kanani, but sadly due to medical bills I can’t afford to buy her anything AG. Iwould love to be able to surprise her with something she really loves and deserves.
    Thank you for this opportunity.

  281. Blake says:

    I would like to win Kanani for a number of reasons: 1. I don’t have a lot of friends at school and when I’m around my American Girl doll I feel like she is my best friend. I can talk to her about anything and even though there not real, I feel like she is listening to me and understands me. Plus they’ll never leave you, like a friend might. They’re always there for you! 2. I can relate to Kanani’s story. We both have a cousin who we don’t know how to please or get along with real well. Kanani and Rachel don’t have much in common, just like me and my cousin Eric. Eric brags about how much stuff he has and what he does, and I dont brag because I know its wrong, and I dont have many things like he has. But finally we can talk about something that pleases us both like playing games. And finally 3. Kanani’s stories are the best! Plus she is a very beautiful doll. Her wavy hair and eyes are adorable! That’s why I would like to win Kanani! I would do anything to get her someday.

    I would like to win a Kanani for my daughter. I was already planning on getting her the dress for her birthday and itd be awesome to give her the doll to match. Her 7th birthday is February 4th :)

  295. Mekkah says:

    I would love to win her because i have lanie and i love reading about the outdoors.I went to the ag place on the first to see her,but my mom had to by my sister Kanani because she dosent have any dolls.So i wasnt mad at all.I got her book at target and already started reading it.So if i win her it would be a gift from you to me. My birthday already past dec 14.I would love to win her for a b-day present.

  296. Miranda says:

    I would like to win Kanani for my daughter because she has been repeating over and over about how much she “loves Kanani and wants her really really really bad”.

    Thank you,

    My daughter is sooo excited to win her,but i could not aford any more dolls after the holidys.I want to surprise her for a christmas present because I didn’t get her any thing only my mom and my niece and nefew. she would love a kanani doll because no one can aford one intill april and she dosen’t want to wait that long.So when u are oicking a winner choose the one u think is right.

  299. Michele says:

    My daughter is currently saving up for her, so it would be wonderful to win her and then she could use the saved money for accessories. My daughter is a reluctant reader, so she has been reading the American Girl books to earn a doll, and saving grade card money. She is currently reading the second of Kanani’s stories. (Which is going to be sad when she gets to the part of the story where Kanani’s rooster is missing, my daughter’s puppy came up missing just before Christmas.) Anyway, she would have a happy home here. Thank you for the opportunity!

  300. Amanda Barnes says:

    My daughter would love to win this beautiful AG doll! She would also like to have the book to read.

  301. Malia says:

    My daughter has been on the AG site for the past several days, making the postcards to try and win a Kanani doll! I thought I’d up her chances a bit by entering here, as well! My name in Hawaiian and my middle name is just one letter different from the doll, so we’re pretty partial to the Hawaiian theme in our house!

  302. DONNA COSTELLO says:

    I would love to win the “Kanani” American Girl doll for my granddaughter Alyssa. She plays with her dolls constantly changing their clothes and giving them new hairdos. I will be taking her to New York in March for her 8th birthday. We would love Kanani to join us. Alyssa will give her a great home and alot of love.

  303. Nicole C. says:

    I want to win because my daughter wants her so badly!!

  304. Joslyn says:

    I would love to win Kanani, she’s a beautiful doll!

  305. Violet says:

    Why i would love to win Kanani is because:
    1. I think she is amazing! I love her long hair.
    2. She would be great with my other dolls. Her and Lanie would have a ball!
    3. She is already o my wish list and I can’t wait to get her!

    Kanani is beautiful, and Hawaii is a magical fun place, which are both high on my list. But I really like her story, which includes diversity, encouragement, passion, and adventure! My three girls would LOVE to have her, and she could be a good lesson in sharing for them.

  308. Wendi says:

    I would love to win the Kanani doll for my little girl Annika, who is turning 7 on the 29th of January. She just loves the AG dolls and has a few of their stories that we’ve gotten at yardsales! A few of the girls in our church have dolls and have invited my daughter to a party at the American Girl cafe this March. She would love to have a doll of her own to bring with her! We were amazed when this doll came out at how much she resembles her with the long hair! It would be the perfect birthday present and just in time! Thank you for considering her!

  309. Alexis says:

    I would like to get Kanani because my daughter has been begging for one for a while now but I just can’t afford it. I feel so bad that i can’t get her one but seeing this doll here! I have to enter! Her birthday is in a few weeks and I would love to give this to her for a surprise!

  310. Dawn A. says:

    My daughter (and I!) love the American Girl dolls, and I love that they encourage not only her dolly play (she’s 8) but also learning about their history or stories! They are expensive, so winning this would be wonderful, since I’m not able to shell out the $100 for a beautiful Kanani. Thanks for offering this contest on your blog!

  311. Mattie says:

    We love AG dolls and Kanani so adorable (we really like the dolphin too)!

  312. Aura says:

    My daughter is turning 3 and although she is quite young she has been admiring her cousins american girl dolls so eagerly that I know she would love one of her own. I always loved Samantha as a kid and dreamed of going out with my Samantha doll with matching sailor outfits. I know they retired Samantha but I would love to buy my daughter an American Girl Doll someday and read the stories together

    I would love to win this doll for my daughter. She is 5 and has wanted one for 2 years now. I wish I could afford one, but I can’t. Kanani is very inspirational, in that she’s a very cheerful girl who likes to help others by sharing the aloha spirit of Hawaii! My daughter is also very cheerful and generous, helpful and caring. They share a lot of similarities. We also love how her hair is so long, my daughter has never cut her hair and has always wanted to grow it long. I’d be so grateful and appreciative if I won Kanani for my daughter.

  321. cath young says:

    I’d love to give this doll to my niece because she would fit into her group of “girls” well. She shares a lot of my niece’s heritage and has a lot of her features as well. Not quite a mini me, but close. My niece can only dream of having that hair.

  346. Linda says:

    I would love to win this Kanani doll for my daughter, apparently 14 is too old to win one from American Girl but she still loves to play with her dolls. She got Lainie for Christmas since that is her nickname and loves Kanani. I love that my teen still plays wiht her childhood toys. My son is mad because they don’t make boy dolls and he has to play with a girl doll. I told him to write to American Girl and ask why they don’t.

  347. Marlisa M says:

    My 7.5 year old loves her American Girl doll, a Just Like Me. She is an only child and one day she told me she loves her doll because she did not feel alone when she had her doll. “It is like having a friend always with me” she said. She has already planned to hand down her doll to her own daughter someday. I would love to be able to give her a new friend, Kanani. We also live at the beach and love the Hawaiian theme. I am anxious to read Kanani’s story. Thank you for this contest!

    I’m a big sister, who is spoiled by her talented little sister, and I’d like to win to repay my little sister a little bit.
    My sister is a wonderful knitter and crocheter and she always makes things for me, just because she can! And she’s really spoiled me in this manner. My sister loves Kanani and would really love to have her, she’s just starting out as an AG addict and I’d like to help her anyway I can.
    I’d like to win the Kanani doll for my baby sister because it’s one of the few ways I can think of to thank her for everything she’s done for me.

    My girls would like to have Kanani because they just learned all about her at the last American Girl meeting at Barnes & Noble. During the meeting, they learned about the Hawaiian language, made coupons for neighbors and learned all about Kanani. They love swimming and dolphins and the flowers in her hair.

  354. dds says:

    i’d love to win kanani. i’d give her to my mom as she spent part of her childhood living in hawaii. i think it would make a great conversation starter once the first grandkid(s) show up.

  366. I want to win Kanani because I love American Girl dolls and lived in Hawaii when I was first married. It is such a special place for me. I met my husband there, very romantic. I had long brown hair like Kanani’s and, of course, was very tan. I loved the ocean and still do. I had my first child in Hawaii and we played on the beach in Waikiki. For a year we lived over in Waimanalo too. The people are so wonderful there and Kanani would be a great reminder of my cherished memories. I would use Kanani as a model in my doll clothes fund raiser for my church to help children go to camp next summer.

  367. I signed up for the newsletter also. Thanks!

  368. Cheri says:

    I’ve made so many clothes for my granddaughter’s American Girl doll using a non-AG doll, and would really love one for myself to use as a model. Eventually, the doll would go to my granddaughter who loves Kanani as I do. We read the catalog together when it came out featuring Kanani. Her hair is so fabulous and her smile is precious! She would be like having a fantasy vacation in Hawaii! It warms my heart to hear how you and your daughter read Kanani’s book together and she can’t get enough..

  369. Katherine says:

    My daughter has been wanting an American Girl doll. She would flip if I won this!

  370. Gay Curtis says:

    Kanani reminds me of my father. He has been gone these many years, but she is Hawaiian and my father fought in World War II, serving two voluntary terms in the midst of combat overseas. The bombing of Pearl Harbor engaged us in that war, and Kanani, to me, represents all the best of our brave compatriots who fought and served so well, but most of all she is a beautiful reminder of my beloved Dad.

  373. Sheryl P says:

    I have 3 daughters who are just in love with Kanani (I admit that I am too!) The last year has not been easy for us, as my husband has been on chemo battling pancreatic cancer. He was diagnosed almost 5 years ago when our oldest daughter was 6 and our youngest was just 10 months. We were dealt a huge blow yesterday when we found out that his cancer has spread to his brain. They have spent much of their life with a dad that has been sick, though we have not told them about the brain tumors. There are a lot of things we can’t afford to do because of his illness, and this new diagnosis is a scary one. I’d love to win a doll for my girls and I to play with together. I’m sure it would give us all some happiness on what are sure to be some tough moments in our future.

  374. Steph B says:

    I would love to in this beautiful doll for my daughter. She asked for an American Girl doll for Christmas but she didn’t receive one. She still talks about the dolls and her 8th birthday in is March…it’s be an awesome gift!

I really want them be able to be survivors and every one knows that every dollar counts!!!!!!!!!!!

  378. Melissa says:

    I am big fan of American Girl doll and their products. I love the beautiful messages and self esteem the American Girl line supports. Not only does it teach my eight year old about “girl power”, it has taught her so many great lessons about history. Right now she is working through the Kit book series and learning about the Great Depression. My daughter and I love American Girl and would be delighted to win Kanani for two reasons. One, we would have a second doll to play dolls together and two, my daughter can learn about the beautiful culture and people of Hawaii. Thanks for the contest:)

    i looked all over to get my daughter the Samantha American Girl Doll for Christmas & Hanukkah, which is now retired. I loved the American Girls books when I was younger, I remember when they first came out. I couldn’t wait to get one for my daughter (even though she is a baby!) When I saw your post on Kanani, I was thinking the same thing. My husband and I went to Hawaii on our honeymoon and went back to visit my best friend (who lived there for 2 years) while I was pregnant with my son. I would love for my kids to learn about Hawaii and what a better way then through the American Dolls!

    We have never, ever won anything before.

    Hello. My daughter was in love with this doll. When she first had a glance of her she asked me to get her. But my daughter didn’t want it for her self. She has a cousin named Olivia who is 7. She had recently fallen down the steps at her house. So now she is in the hospital. Olivia has always wanted an American Girl Doll, but unfortunately her mother can not afford to buy one. My daughter Ali wanted to win this doll so she could give it to her as a special gift. It would mean so much to Ali and Olivia. Thanks for reading this. We hope we get the doll. ~Janet~

  436. Larissa Worthen says:

    My 6 year old, Rebekah’s, reply:

    “I would like to get Kanani for lots and lots of reasons. One, she’s from Hawaii and I’ve always wanted to go there and play in the sand and water like Kanani! Two, because she is beautiful. She has such a pretty dress and her eyes are cute. I love her long brown hair – it looks like mine, but her’s is curly and mine is straight. Three, I really like to read the American Girl books, and she comes with a new book that I haven’t read yet! Four, because I just LOVE American Girl dolls more than any toys in the whole wide world! Except maybe Legos. I like them a lot, too.”

    There’s no way I could have explained her desires better than she could! :)

    My little girl decided that it was to expensive to buy her an American Girl doll for christmas this year so she asked Santa for one.

Nevertheless, as you can tell, she would love this!
