Oh, the good old days. You'd rush home from school to make sure your Tamagotchi was fed, the most important part of your day. You would frantically try to find batteries around your house so your Furby could still make those weird noises. Your American Girl doll was your BFF and she never left your side. You two were inseparable.
Those dolls were really such a treasure for anyone who owned one. But the latest American Girl Doll has the internet excited - for the best reason.
In 1986, the first American Girl doll was released, made by a company called Pleasant Rowland.

Felicity Merriman, a Revolutionary War girl living in 1774 Williamsburg, Virginia (archived in 2011). Kirsten Larson , a pioneer girl originally from Sweden, living in Minnesota in 1854 (archived in 2010). Molly McIntire, the daughter of a WWII doctor who has gone to Europe to help wounded soldiers (archived in 2014).

Even Conan loves them!Conan O'Brien visited an American Girl doll store where he created his own doll. It's a hilarious video where he gets a behind the scenes look of the doll. Basically, it's hard not to love these dolls.

Well, it has the internet feeling excited!
She's a Michigan-based girl with a love for animals - and in her book, she goes to Australia to explore their native wildlife.
Her gay aunts, Mamie and Lynette, run an animal sanctuary in Australia, and Kira goes over to help them out.
We love this inclusive story.
