Do you have an American Girl fan on your list? Chances are they would love to open up Grace Thomas Girl of the Year doll and accessories this Christmas. Remember how we were super excited to announce her arrival last January as the 2015 Girl of the Year? This is just a gentle reminder that you only have until 12/31/2015 to get any Grace items before she’s gone for good! Many of her really popular items are already gone, so don’t wait too long if you’re planning on purchasing.
Just in time for Christmas, you can bring home Grace and see why she stole all of our hearts this year. I haven’t been in the store this month, but I’m guessing the stock is getting pretty low so I’m going to head there this week. I really would like to get the Grace shirt for girls and so far it says it is available online. Fingers crossed the store still has it!
Still not sold? Check out our list of 7 reasons why you should bring Grace Thomas home with you this year. As an update to this list, I am happy to report that the kids and I participated in the For Goodness, Bake! campaign this summer just like dozens of other kids across the country. Thanks to our introduction to Grace Thomas, we raised a bunch of money for No Kid Hungry by hosting our own Grace-inspired bake sale. It was such an amazing experience for the kids and I was really surprised by how motivated they were to bake, sell, and then donate to charity. Who would have thought a doll would inspire so much good? Remember that you can still donate to the cause through American Girl until the end of the year – no bake sale required, although I would encourage you to throw one if you can!

For those that would prefer a Historical BeForever doll, the newest doll, Maryellen, is a great pick. We love her 50s style and her amazing accessories that any child would love to play with. Go on, make history fun again.
