About your frustration with the maxi skirt doll only being available in Canada, sadly I was actually excited to read this, finally something just for us! Your Girl of Today makes her holiday debut as the Sugar Plum fairy! Retrieved 22 November Meet Isabelle the Dancer". Luciana's love for science and dreams to be the first person to Mars is sure to ignite an interest in young girls.
I wish they would bring back Felicity and kirsten as well! The inspired girl outfits are great! I miss the retired dolls but I love seeing new items too. But if the dresses make me look like a giant family dinner table with legs or I rip through them like The Incredible She-Hulk, I can still say that I at least tried.
I can probably wear them! But they are all adorable! I do like the doll inspired fashions for girls, but really think they should have been added to the collections in doll size too.

Themes in her core series focus on leadership, compassion, courage, and attachment. Chronologically, Kaya's adventures are the earliest of the historical characters.
Kaya is depicted as brave and outgoing, but careless and thoughtless, and wants to be a leader of her people. Her role model is a female warrior named Swan Circling. Created in collaboration with a consultation team that included representatives from the Nez Perce tribe,  Kaya is the only Native American doll made by American Girl to date.
Kaya is the only doll in the series not to show teeth, per tribal custom. Kaya is also the first doll in the series to not follow the book naming customs established by previously-released characters — the second book in the series is titled Kaya's Escape instead of Kaya Learns a Lesson.
Felicity Merriman is an auburn haired, horse-loving girl living in Williamsburg, Virginia , who is caught between Patriot and Loyalist family and friends at the onset of the American Revolution.
Themes in her core books include loyalty and staying true to one's ideals. Felicity is depicted as spunky, brave, and free-spirited, and is often fed up with the customs that young women are expected to observe at the time, much to her mother's disappointment. She can be a little brash, impatient and foolish sometimes, and sets her heart on things often. She is also quite outspoken, but will stand up to bullies, as she did with Jiggy Nye.
Felicity also is not afraid to tease Annabelle, Elizabeth's older sister, coming up with the name "Bananabelle". She eventually learns to be more ladylike throughout the series; however, she is still quite active.

In February Felicity was re-introduced as part of BeForever. Elizabeth Cole is Felicity's best friend, despite her Loyalist family leanings during the American Revolution. In spite of being quiet and shy, she is known to poke fun at her older sister Annabelle with Felicity — this stems from being teased at by Annabelle, who gave her younger sister the nickname "Bitsy".
Elizabeth is also shown to be somewhat wealthier, as evidenced by having a larger home, and a larger garden. The Elizabeth doll was introduced in August as the second Best Friend doll with a book written by author Valerie Tripp , and the character was prominently featured in Felicity: An American Girl Adventure.
