Caroline Abbott is in the AG Catalog!

Have you received the latest American Girl catalog in the mail?  Their newest historical character, Caroline Abbott, is the cover model!  Finally, everyone can see all the beautiful clothes and accessories you can get!  They are all made with the finest attention to historical detail, so everything would look right at home in 1812.  The item my kids (yes, even the boys!) are most excited about is Caroline's Skiff ($175).   It's so beautiful, with a canvas sail, seats and oars.  What with our experience watching Olympics sailing this summer, with the America's Cup coming to San Francisco and of course with my husband loving to sail as he does, Caroline's Skiff is the one item in Caroline's line they would really love to get.

Of course, even if you don't like sailing (or don't have room for such a huge boat!), there are many other items from Caroline's world.  Here's a rundown of Caroline's clothes, accessories and playsets before they finally appear for sale in stores and online on September 4:
