I got an American Girl doll from my grandmother for my sixth birthday, and I can't remember loving something more than I did my Molly doll. Now American Girl is releasing a new doll in their BeForever line, so that this generation of children can continue to discover the joys of having something as special as an American Girl doll. Maryellen Larkin is from Daytona, FL, and the stories in her books take place in the 1950s — think diners, jukeboxes, and poodle skirts — so your little can explore a different era (the era most voted for by American Girl doll-lovers young and old).
While Maryellen feels the pressure to conform to social standards, she also strives to stand out and be true to herself, even when that means going against expectations. Read through to see photos of the brand-new addition to the doll line, the books that correspond with her, and some of her supercool accessories that will connect your kiddo to the fabulous '50s in a modern way (like the television set that actually hooks up to an iPad!).
For those of you not as well versed in the American Girl oeuvre, at the beginning of each year the uber-popular doll company releases a contemporary doll that celebrates the modern American girl (all their other dolls are based on historic eras). In the first book – Saige Paints the Sky (written by Jessie Haas) Saige answers a call to action when her school is hit with budget cuts and her beloved art class is cut. Saige will be available for sale in stores and on their website starting on January 1st and will be available for just one year.
Saige, wearing her awesome Southwest inspired jacket, shows off her painting skills with this easel and canvas set. Use a Facebook account to add a comment, subject to Facebook's Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.
Maryellen Larkin is nine years old and longs to stand out, but in a family with five brothers and sisters it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle! Turning ten is a big deal, and Maryellen Larkin wants to celebrate it in a very special way. About American Girl Doll ArtistI love American Girl dolls, photography, and most of all, art.

When the BeForever mini dolls came out, I didn’t really like any of them, but I have to say, the Maryellen mini doll is pretty cute. My great-grandma’s name is Mary Ellen and when she was younger she had strawberry blond hair!!!! Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. For more than a year, American Girl has been hard at work developing a doll without hair option for girls affected by cancer, alopecia, or any medical condition causing hair loss.
KateKate started The Shopping Mama™ in January 2009 when, after graduating law school, she traded in online legal research and writing for locating the best products for children.
She was more than a plaything to me, she was a friend as I grew up an only child, and reading her books and making up my own stories for her is part of what I believe fostered my creativity and love of reading and writing as a young child. The books written for the doll, by Valerie Tripp, will help your child to explore life for a young girl in the '50s. Through Maryellen, Tripp shows how trends of the 1950s — such as the burgeoning of suburbia, "the baby boom," geographic and economic mobility, new technology (like TV and rockets), rock 'n' roll, and lingering postwar prejudice — shape the life of one girl. As 2012 comes to a close, we say goodbye to McKenna the American Girl Doll of the Year 2012, the doll who loves gymnastics. She has long brown hair (perfect for braiding), freckles, and her purple dress  is accented with a Southwest inspired belt, paying homage to her hometown. Will she choose a western theme or decide on a superstar celebration, or will the event turn out to be something even Maryellen doesn’t expect? I combined American Girl and art into one, and made the first American Girl themed coloring pages! Debuting today as part of the My American Girl® line, the new dolls provide even more possibilities for a girl to create a friend that’s as unique as she is.

Due to the special nature of the doll, orders can only be placed through the American Girl contact center. The Saige line includes items that celebrate New Mexico from a colorful hot air balloon to a Navajo inspired sweater and cowboy boots. Being invited to stay in at recess and practice her handwriting earns Maryellen a new friend, but what does that mean for her old friendships? Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to Small Dolls in a Big World™ with appropriate and specific direction to the original content. The company has sure changed in the (many) years since I read book after book of historical fiction featuring strong girl characters. Due to special handling, orders for the new dolls will be taken exclusively through our contact center by calling 1-800-628-5145. Yes, that is an outburst of enthusiasm as I get in touch with my inner 8-year-old or talk to my own American Girl Doll obsessed 6-year-old. Then, Maryellen is wishing for a white Christmas like the ones in the movies (not very likely in Florida!). My daughter has yet to enter the world of American Girl though I’m sure it’s only a matter of time! These special dolls also will be included in our $100,000+ annual doll donation to the Children’s Hospital Association.
The company continues to grow its product offering and we are excited to share a new specially crafted doll.
