Sprinkle some fun and learning with American Girl this year!

In 2019, American Girl is inviting everyone to spend time with the most important people in our lives, family and friends! Blaire Wilson was recently announced as the Girl of the Year, and we could not be more excited about this choice as she will introduce young girls to a whole new world they may not have thought about prior to now. Blaire works with her family at the Pleasant View Farm where she can be found cooking with her mom and developing new recipes to post on the blog. She also loves designing new ideas for the renovated barn and wrangling a goat and sheep that are inseparable. Blaire is a breath of fresh air as she serves farm to table food in a restaurant attached to a Bed & Breakfast located in upstate New York.

If it seems as though Blaire has a lot on her plate, well, she does. People gravitate towards her enthusiastic and kind disposition which makes her a popular resource to those around her. Blaire, however, was recently diagnosed with a food allergy that is not just impacting how she cooks and what she eats, but also her self-esteem. It is very likely that your child knows someone with a food allergy so reading Blaire’s struggles will increase their ability to empathize. If your child has a food allergy, there is now a doll that is sharing with the world the struggles individuals face when they are attending a birthday party or social event.

Blaire’s story doesn’t focus on the food allergy but how she regains her confidence after the diagnosis. There are times when Blaire retreats too much into her grandfather’s phone or her tablet instead of being with her family and friends. Her story has several layers that transform into wonderful conversations with your child about resilience.

The 18” Blaire has auburn hair styled in a waterfall braid with bright green eyes wearing a summer dress and purple sandals. The Blaire book series, published by Scholastic, has two books that were written by Jennifer Castle. Additional accessories that can be purchased include the Family’s Farm Restaurant, her piglet and plenty of outfits to choose from. Blaire’s story intersects with many stories that young girls need to explore and understand from developing empathy towards individuals with food allergies to maintaining a healthy balance between the digital and physical world.

American Girl inspires children to understand the complex world that surrounds them, and teaches them that every obstacle can be overcome with courage and kindness. Established in 1986, American Girl has quickly become the premier location to get the doll for your child. Well-known for their historical dolls from different eras and various backgrounds, American Girl later expanded to include dolls from modern times like Blaire.  Accompanying these dolls is their own unique stories expressed over several books which promotes raising readers and developing positive personality traits. The extensive collection is available at and at all American Girl retail locations.

  1. What do I love about American Girl Dolls? I love how the dolls are timeless yet ever evolving. I have AG dolls from my childhood that I can pass on to my daughters and they can learn new and modern lessons from the new releases.

    I am in love with this giveaway. Not only is it AG, but my daughter was recently diagnosed with dairy allergy. I didn’t know that about this doll. Now I’ve got to get a Blaire book.

  3. Tina

    I love that AG dolls are timeless. Our middle daughter has played with them for several years already with no end in sight! And they are durable so they can be passed down to her younger sister when the time comes.

  4. Caroline

    I love that American Girl dolls have such diversity in both looks and personalities.They even have differing face shapes! It’s nice to see such variety.

  5. Tabathia

    That they represent girls of all color and different job titles. I love how they show that any thing is possible for a girl to do if they want to do it.
