There’s so much more to American Girl dolls… they tell a story. That’s why I love when a new one comes out like Maryellen Larkin cause I get to learn and talk about it with my daughter. So fun to watch her expressions and show interest about history and women.
Well now American Girl is excited to announce the newest character to the BeForever line, Maryellen Larkin – from the fabulous fifties! Depicting an era that gave rise to tremendous growth and change in America, Maryellen’s products and stories have an intergenerational appeal that is sure to be a hit with girls, moms, and grandmas!
