In an email from American Girl, it has come to our attention that there is a confirmed release of not one, not two, but six new dolls for 2017!

It's that time of year again, and we have a new Girl of the Year! GOTY 2017 is Gabriela McBride. Gabriela is an African American doll, which excites us since AG has not had a doll of color be the Girl of the Year since Kanani in 2011. Gabriela is a dancer, which we were not too happy to hear. Don't get me wrong, we love cute dance outfits, but it has only been two years since the last GOTY dancer (Isabelle in 2014). But there is a new twist on Gabriella - she is a poet and has a stutter. I think this is great since there has not been a doll like that before, so at least she is unique in that aspect.

The Gabriela doll retails for $115 and has dark skin, curly brown hair, and brown eyes. Her meet outfit includes a purple cropped top with three-quarter length sleeves and a dream graphic layered over a teal tank top, skinny jeans, purple and blue sneakers, and a pink double headband.

Select Toys R Us stores had their grand opening of American Girl merchandise on October 29, 2016. Only certain stores stocked American Girl, so you might want to check on this website to see if the store nearest to you has it before you go. The store nearest to us did not stock the Truly Me items, so we drove up to Milwaukee the day after the release. The prices are all the same as they would be if bought directly from American Girl.
The American Girl section was right in front, and it was very well stocked, considering the fact that it was the day after the grand opening.
