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.
