There's something big happening in the American Girl world! Today American Girl relaunched their Historical Doll line with a fresh new look and a new name: the BeForever Collection. This line of historical dolls, books, clothes, playsets and accessories includes the following characters:
Yes, that's right! Samantha is back! American Girl has pulled her back from the archives to celebrate the launch of the BeForever Collection. Not only that, Samantha and all the other dolls come in fresh new outfits (everyone, that is, except Caroline).
BooksThe stories for each character are the pretty much the same, but the old 6-book series has been condensed into 2 books, and these books have new covers featuring photos of real girls. Also, each character stars in a new "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure" type book, along with a girl from today who travels back in time. The new BeForever "Journey" book series has multiple endings, letting readers choose what happens at key points.
Contemporary ClothingInstead of identical dress-like-your-doll clothing, the new BeForever girls clothing collection features modern-day clothing inspired by the historical characters -- so these are clothes that girls can wear every day! I love this idea!
American Girl's new BeForever Collection is sure to inspire a whole new generation of girls! I can't wait to explore this new line!
Disclosure: I received a press kit announcing the BeForever collection along with a sample book to review. The views and opinions expressed here are my own.
