The line is a tribute to inspirational athletes, featuring gear and outfits fit for 18-inch dolls. The clothing and accessories cover six summer sports: gymnastics, soccer, swimming, track and field, softball, and beach volleyball. The collection also includes a Team USA Medal Ceremony Set and a kid-sized Team USA “Go for the Gold” T-shirt.
The Team USA sets are available to purchase individually, or as play packs in the customized American Girl Gift Trunk experience. The American Girl website and YouTube channel will feature fun video content to get kids excited.
Additionally, American Girl’s 2020 Girl of the Year is Joss Kendrick, an athlete born with hearing loss, who doesn’t let that hold her back from her passion for surfing and competitive cheerleading. The Joss product line expands with summer-themed items, including a Beach Jumper and Beach Grill Set (both pictured above), featuring a portable grill with color-change technology that kids can use to “cook” the pretend food and give it the appearance of grill marks thanks to the special lighting inside.
And that’s not all — American Girl is teaching kids about the importance of voting with the Truly Me Student Council Election Set (pictured above), which comes with a ballot box, a “VOTE” banner and buttons, and a recording megaphone. There is also a new AG Fashion Show x Clements Twins Cute at Heart Collection, featuring stylish outfits for both dolls and kids, including a gold moto jacket, a heart-print dress, a summery skirt, a sparkly kimono, and more.
Kids who love to read can also pick up two new titles in American Girl’s “A Smart Girl’s Guide” advice series: A Smart Girl’s Guide: Making a Difference, giving kids the tools to make a positive difference in their communities for the causes they care about; and A Smart Girl’s Guide: Crushes, helping kids make sense of new emotions.
