All About American Girl
American Girl is famous for being a line of dolls, which originally started out as a collection of characters from different periods of American history, each with their own series of books and stories. In 1995, the line expanded to include present-day dolls too. There are also dolls called "Truly Me" that girls can order to look like them, with custom eye, skin, and hair color, as well as hair texture and length and eye shape. No matter what kind of doll you order, you can pick accessories to go along with them, too.
