American Girl of the Year 2015

The cat’s out of the bag.  Details on the American Girl of the Year 2015 are leaking out!  The book has been added to Amazon so you can pre-order it.  It will not officially be released until January of 2015.  However, the book preview is showing.  You can read it below.

Nine-year-old GOTY is always thinking up big ideas, like starting a business with her friends over the summer! When Mom announces a trip to Paris instead, GOTY gets on board, but it quickly seems as if none of her plans are working out the way she’d hoped. She and her French cousin aren’t getting along, and GOTY’s friends back home have started a business without her. Can she find the courage to stay open to new ideas and turn the summer around? 

We do know that the characters for the movie have been cast and it’s a big hush hush on names and appearances.  It’s almost cruel to announce the book, pick the characters and then not show us a picture or give us any information on the girl of the year!

Hummm.  What do you think?  Like?  Love?  Unsure?  Will she herself be French?  We don’t know and it’s so exciting.  I have heard talk now for about a year that the “people” wanted an American Girl Doll of the Year with a disability.  Maybe 2015 will bring us that doll?

What are your thoughts/speculations of the American Girl of the Year 2015?

  3. Riley June 27, 2015 at 5:15 pm -

    I heard they are making a black doll for 2016. Maybe one year they can make a girl who is a singer.

    I wiSh American girl would make a goty tennis player or at least an outfit but what’t really sad is that every story AG makes they always make them sound picture perfect like a fairy-tale it will always turn out perfect in the end so many girls’ lives are hurting! Some girls may not have a loving family! The least they can do is lower their prices!

  9. Katelyn January 1, 2015 at 8:49 pm -

    The thing that I hate about American girl is that they are making Goty dolls with too similar of a story. Like Saige and Nicki they both like horses and animals, Isabelle and Marisol they both dance! And Grace’s hair and eyes look too much like Chrissa. The worst part is that practically Jess and Grace have the same story. They go out of the USA on a trip. There more dolls that are similar but these are just a few. I’m just saying but those 3 Goty dolls don’t seem so special anymor

    I think that they should make one that is historical with dirty blond hair blue eyes and NO FRECLES
    Named Abbygail from the 1700’s

  17. MK December 30, 2014 at 6:47 am -

    I think they should do either a sporty GOTY or they should do one who excels at something in school, but has trouble with something including family.

  18. Alexis December 29, 2014 at 8:54 pm -

    2012 Mckenna

    A fifth grader who lives in Florida named Kate Morgan McCarthya who has always stood up for herself and her twin sister Taylor Natalie McCarthy. Kate and Taylor go on a camping trip with their only three friends, Aly, Lily and Lauren. One day they had finished swimming out at the lake and were heading back to change for fireworks when Kate trips over a tree root and gets her foot caught. Aly, Lily and Lauren help her get out but her foot still hurts and they have 4 more days left camping. Lily ‘s mom takes Kate to the hospital and they have to cancel the rest of the camping trip because Kate broke her foot. When they go back to school Lauren Aly and Lily get mad at Kate for ruining the camping trip and befriend them, but Taylor sticks up for Kate.

    Katarina( pronounced katuhrenuh) lives to run. She Has just finished the last day of Elementary Scool and is really exited for her report card. She has never gotten anything lower than an A. When she gets it she screams in surprise. She got a D for her highest grade.Thinking they gave her the wrong one, she has her parents call her school. The school says it is write and to send Katarina to summer scool. Kat runs to her room and calls her friend Zoe. Zoe says she got only A+ and would be going to running camp. Not wanting to admit her grades, Katarina ends the call. When she gets home from her first day of summer school, Zoe calls Kat. Zoe tells her that at her old school, she always went to summer school, and finaly she learned how to balance school and running. The next day during summer school, because she studied last night, she got all the awnsers right. Kat then doesn’t have to come in the afternoon, so she gets to go to running camp.

She wants to hang out with her friend Julianna but she doesn’t know how to ask. One day she finds out she has a problem with a bone in her ankle after collapsing in gym.

    The 2016 GOTY should be in a wheelchair and the wheelchair comes with her accessories but you can get it free if you buy it in the same purchase with the doll. She has a dog who is a Pomeranian named Minty. She is a new student in the middle of the school year because she has finished a school fir disabilities. She gets bullied by girls in her class. The bullies med are Sasha and Caitlin. She then finds a girl in the back of the class is in a wheelchair to. The girl in the wheelchairs name is Amethyst who you can also buy. Amethyst tells her about her past and they become best friends. The girls older brother finds out about the bullying and stands up fir her and Amethyst. Sasha then dognaps Minty on bring your pet to school day and gets in huge trouble and changes to a private school. Caitlin then becomes friends with her and Amethyst.

  40. Herman (Lily) December 28, 2014 at 10:43 am -

    I mean great idea AGROCKS

  41. Herman (Lily) December 28, 2014 at 10:42 am -

    They should make a doll about a cheerleader named lily that lives in Frisco, Texas. She really dreams of being a horseback rider but she can’t follow that dream until her cheer life is over. When she was 7 she went to a ranch called Wind River Ranch and ride a horse named Rosco. That changed her life forever so she wanted her own horse so she could ride every day but she didn’t have enough room for the horse. When she was 9 she got a gift for Christmas. That gift was a horseback riding lesson. She couldn’t wait.

    Skin- peach/tanish
    Hair-golden blond
    Eyes-blue

  42. Goty December 28, 2014 at 10:39 am -

    Goty should have a learning disability or Cenral palsy

  43. Herman (Lily) December 28, 2014 at 10:33 am -

    Great idea Lilah!!!

  44. AGROCKS December 28, 2014 at 7:26 am -

    They have a Huskey Named Art(short for artic)

  45. AGROCKS December 28, 2014 at 7:25 am -

    Another idea

    Lilah James lives in Alaska with her Mom and Dad.One day her dad goes missing. Lilah searches for him when no one else does. Finally Lilah finds him. On the way back they gey cought in a huge storm. After it though, Lilah has frostbite on a finger. They get back then have to go to New York City to get a prostatic finger. Finally they head back to Alaska.

    Lilah

  46. AGROCKS December 28, 2014 at 7:15 am -

    Abbey

  47. AGROCKS December 28, 2014 at 7:14 am -

    Maybe the black girl could have one of the other players stand up for her

  48. AGROCKS December 28, 2014 at 7:13 am -

    Mikalah

    Skin-Dark Brown

    Eyes-hazel

    Hair-straight dark,dark brown,Middle of her back

    Lory

    Skin-tanned

    Eyes-green with a hint of blue

    Hair-blonde with lots of natural highlits,straight,bottem of her shoulder

  49. AGROCKS December 28, 2014 at 7:07 am -

    runs away, but when she gets to Lincoln, she meets another girl named Lory. Lory has a metel hand too! Lory teaches her that it is okay to be different. Mikalah calls her parents and they cam pick her up.

    P.S. This could be based in the future.

  50. Abbey December 27, 2014 at 5:29 pm -

    I think that they should have A black girl that plays soccer and she is the only black girl on the team. she should be made fun of but finds a way to fix it.

  51. AGROCKS December 27, 2014 at 4:49 pm -

    Btw im not finished

  52. AGROCKS December 27, 2014 at 4:48 pm -

    Another idea that could even start a new line;
    11 year old Mikalah just went through the worst surgery of her life. She is now a cyborg. Her hand and her leg(both left) are now metel. Unfortunatly, not everyone looks through kind eyes at cyborgs.Plus, her new limbs remind her of the crash,how she got them, and how her mom died. When she goes to school, even her BFF makes fun of her. Mad she

  53. AGROCKS December 27, 2014 at 4:37 pm -

    They would also have 4 cats;
    Fai Fai-an orange tabby kitten girl
    Little miss-an gray tabby kitten girl
    Meko-an older tortacele cat girl
    Morph-an older black with white on his paws and on the tip of his tail
    And a goldfish named pluto and a fish named angel

  54. AGROCKS December 27, 2014 at 4:12 pm -

    They would live on the edge of Omaha and Gretna Nebraska.

  55. AGROCKS December 27, 2014 at 4:09 pm -

    Maybe 2016 GOTY could be named Skyla and have a twin brother named Skylar. Skyla loves writing and acting, unlike her brother, who only likes to play football. Skyla enters a writing contest and wins, but her brothers big game is the same time on the same day. Her Dad is out helping being a medical assistant in the war, so they can only go to one. Skylar manages to convince there mom that his is more important. Although angry and frusterated, Skyla goes. At the game, Sklar falls and breaks his arm. They then are about to go to the hospital, but Skla cant go with, so her aunt brings her home. Finally, 2 days later, they return from the hospital. An hour later, the dad returns home.

    Skyla:

    Skin:Dark Brown like her Dad

    Eyes: Carmal

    Hair: Layered wavey black waist length

    Skylar:

    Skin:Carmal like mom

    Eyes:blue

    Hair:black

  56. Unicorn December 27, 2014 at 3:55 pm -

    I hope there is a doll that has dyslexia like me

  57. Amelia December 27, 2014 at 1:18 pm -

    isabel is great

  58. Alexis December 26, 2014 at 9:26 pm -

    I loved Elizas idea from October 1st but I also have one:

    A doll who is a hockey player and goes through some troubles with girls at school making fun of her being a hockey player and her dad us the coach of the team. A friend on her team becomes the new girl at school and they get through a lot together. Her friends name would be Chloe, the bully would be named Vivian but goes by ViVi. She would live in Minnesota
    Name: Alicia Christa Waters
    Hair: dark brown with dark red streaks medium length wavy
    Eyes: Green
    Skin: Tan like a little lighter than Kananis

    I also have another idea for a doll:

    A doll who is a piano player and singer( because they don’t have a musician GOTY) She would live in Oregon but takes a trip to Washington DC where she plays in the white house for the president. She would then play on television the star spangled banner for a hockey game while down there and conquers her fear of being scared to perform in front of a lot of people with the help of her dog, Sparky, a German shepherd. She is paralyzed so she is in a wheelchair and is deaf. ( remember Beethoven he was a deaf pianist to) She is an only child and lives with her mom cuz her dad died last year. She has a best friend who is like a sister and does go to DC with her named Abigail Jocew.
    Name: Brooklyn Rachit
    Hair: Purple with white tips
    Eyes: Blue with a brown flick on one
    Skin: Tan a little lighter than Kananis

    Btw: The New doll is Grace Thomas who is a baker and goes to paris

  59. Renee Hughes December 26, 2014 at 12:41 pm -

    I feel like they should make a black goty doll bur grace is pretty. i wont be getting her cause i live on an island and they dont have ag stores here but i go over seas every summer but its hard to fit the furniture in the suitcase but i have one ag doll and her name is nicki goty 2007 and i only need one but grace is pretty

  60. 11 year old December 26, 2014 at 10:48 am -

    I think that the girl of the year shall be a Mexican (like me ) but not only cause that a Mexican would be nice their pretty

  61. diana flores December 26, 2014 at 9:10 am -

    i think you should make her white or tan with blue eyes and totaly sheek and cut a tottaly sasy to be the poupuler one at school

  62. Chana Basha December 24, 2014 at 4:57 pm -

    u guys i agree they should make a doll with colored skin but there is addy but yah you should tell american girl

  63. Eliz December 23, 2014 at 9:20 pm -

    I just wish American Girl dolls were made in America! We definitely need a black doll. How beautiful she would be!!

  64. jessica anderson December 23, 2014 at 8:01 pm -

    come join my group on fb and you can see the new grace girl of the year 2015 😉 https://www.facebook.com/groups/AGD80NUNDER/

  65. Brianna December 23, 2014 at 7:07 am -

    I saw a pic of Grace Thomas today!!!She is sooooo cute!She has black long hair with bangs and blue eyes and she is wearing a Paris shirt and boots

  66. A chinese person December 22, 2014 at 8:43 pm -

    Black hair
    Vietnamese, Japanese, or Chinese
    Tan or medium skins
    Dark brown eyes
    Plays the flute

    OR……

    Brown hair
    Jamaican, Nigerian, or South African
    Darker skin
    Chocolate brown eyes
    Plays the trumpet

    Yes, I know it’s American, but what about children adopted or immigrants? But it would be cool to do one of the ideas above or an Alaskan person.

  67. A chinese person December 22, 2014 at 8:38 pm -

    Sorry but there are too many white or light girls. Even if they are white they should at least have green or brown eyes. there are too many blond dolls with white skin and blue eyes. The comments above describe blonde hair, white skin, and blue eyes, but that is practically the Caroline doll with different clothes.

  68. Melany December 22, 2014 at 11:03 am -

    NAME Aubrey
    SKIN COLOR. light
    HAIR COLOR. Carmel
    EYES. blue
    TALENT. guitar

  69. Melany December 22, 2014 at 10:46 am -

    It should have the face of mag doll 24 and mckenna’s eyes and hair I WOULD SOOOOOOOOOOOO BUY THAT DOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  70. A chinese person December 20, 2014 at 10:20 am -

    Please make it chinese or black. There r 2 many white dolls…. That’s why I had to get a white doll for my make ur own doll—-none of them were any other ethnicity. I hope that Grace is not white but at least some other race.

  71. minecraft34 December 18, 2014 at 7:37 pm -

    The girl should be light colored her name should be Katrina Robinson she is a girl who likes polo she should have a brown horse she should be a brunette hair color green eyes she should have a polo outfit but when finals come she is having trouble and gets an F- her parents say if she does not do better they will take her out of polo camp

  72. Meg December 18, 2014 at 2:05 pm -

    PS i have sent this idea to american girl

  73. Meg December 18, 2014 at 2:01 pm -

    My American Girl thought idea is a girl called Meg. She is a keen water-skier from Florida. She has been skiing since she was three and wakeboarding from five years old. Meg is now thinking about entering a water-ski competition. But can she do it….she needs to believe in herself!

    I thought this was a great idea for an American Girl of the year because:
    – You have never had a water skier doll.
    – You have never done most of these accessory ideas.
    – Water skiing is a popular sport in Florida, America.
    – There are plenty of accessories that could be made!

    Here are some details of Meg and her accessories that I came up with.

    Meg – light skin, long wavy blonde hair down to hips, blue eyes, earrings, freckles and a silver “Meg” bracelet.

    they should not make a black or disabled doll because they would not get many buyers

  75. Emily Schutte December 11, 2014 at 5:14 pm -

    whoever eliah is that is a awesome story they should really make a doll like that

  76. eliah December 9, 2014 at 6:17 pm -

    I’m working on my own story for a doll I designed
    She’s an 11 year old latino girl who moves to north carolina after her parents divorce and her moms remarrige. She is captain of the girls basketball team at her new school and she volenteers at an animal shelter. The animal shelter suffers from a fire and it is up to Noa (that’s the girls name) to raise enough money to help fix the shelter and help get the animals adopted before they get put down. Noa has trouble balancing planning a fundraiser and her school work along with leading her team to victory with the upcomming county championship fast approaching and she buckles under the pressure and is too afraid to ask for help from her friends but with a helpful pep talk from her mom and help from her team she manages to get many pets adopted and adopts one her self, a guinea pig named forrest. Her team gets 2 nd place In the championships but learns a lesson that she needs to be proud of what she does and can’t be afraid to ask for help when she needs it most. She has black hair and dark skin with grey eyes

  77. Julian December 9, 2014 at 1:50 pm -

    I think the doll should have long caramel hair

  78. Heather December 8, 2014 at 3:25 pm -

    I actually got to see a picture of her today!!! She is ADORABLE! She has black hair (long with bangs) blue eyes and is wearing a cute skirt with a white top that has a Paris theme picture on it along with really cute boots! Can’t wait for her to get here!!

    • Meg December 18, 2014 at 2:03 pm -

      Heather can u plz post a pic of her

    • Meg December 18, 2014 at 2:06 pm -

      what color is her skin !!!!!!!!!

  79. citygirl December 8, 2014 at 8:29 am -

    I would love to see an Asian GOTY.

    They could either have her be adopted or a 2nd generation immigrant. Both would have the struggle of not knowing much about their country of origin due to having grown up only in America but would still most likely face certain stereotypes and if she was a 2nd generation Asian would have expectations from her family that she may not agree with.

  80. Rylee December 3, 2014 at 2:41 pm -

    I think they should change the names up like instead of common names like isabelle or mia it should be more like saige and kalani! The next name should be rylee. Lol 😉

  81. Amanda December 3, 2014 at 1:35 pm -

    Just random idea for goty though if my chance thy do use it know it won’t be for long time. A girl in wheelchair with light brown hair green eyes skin tone doesn’t matter as tjat is not what girls look at and she should be on a wheelchair basketball team and as hobby play on softball team that doesn’t discriminate with a pinch runner. Her favorite colors are,purple,aqua and lime green. She does enjoy some more girly stiff but her favorite things are definitely basketball and baseball. Food allergies are optional and she generally likes most foods.

    Just my thoughts. I can’t wait till January first to find out what we get,

    Also could ne girl with dark brown hair blue eyes whom has only one hand she was born with out her right hand and despite lack of a hand she enjoys playing soccer,

    Also to buy the wheelchair separately on just like you doll cost even more money and doll is expensive as is. And ATM American girl is really lacking in doll outfit choices. I want more purple,aqua,lime,green and orange to start with for different outfit choices I am sick of the soft blues the pinks and whites sometimes with little yellow sprinkled in. The most creative crescent outfits where McKenna’s and that was like 2 yrs ago. They need more outfit choices.

  82. Sharkisha December 2, 2014 at 4:14 pm -

    I totally agree with the Ombre style! For one, the doll would be very different, but unique too! They have never done this hair style before and they should try it. If American girl should even consider adding hair extensions like the one that comes with Isabelle but, make it hair colors like the buns and the braid hair pieces. This would create a unique style for the doll and could even create a better look alike doll for you considering the Ombre hair style was popular this summer!

    Sorry that’s see not see

  84. Doll Lover November 28, 2014 at 9:36 am -

    Here’s a trick on how to get the new GOTY
    Set your computer or phone clock ahead of time so you can get it a few hours early!!! I can’t wait and I hope that they do a not so typical girl. I love Isbella because I dance and see but, they already kind of did that and that’s a cliche fake white girl story!

  85. natasha November 26, 2014 at 5:25 pm -

    I also agree that american girl needs to become more racially and culturally diverse with the new dolls. The retiring of Cecile was a bad move on their part. regarding the GOTY dolls, I heard that it takes them 4 years to develop a girl of the year doll and do all the research for her. Unfortunatly it’s unlikely that they will be able to make a black or other non-white goty soon because they’ve already started on 2016 and most likeely 2017 as well.

    I do have an idea for a goty though…

    STORY: 12 year old Amber loves to skateboard, it’s her whole life pretty much. But, one day she’s trying a super duper risky trick and ends up hurting her leg beyond repair. She ends up having to get a prosthetic leg. She wants to give up since skatboarding is harder with her leg. but, she learns not to give up and she learns how to skate again and enters a big contest for skateboarding and wins.

    Being a girl skateboarder (one of few), I think that this is a really good idea. It also incorporates the idea of a disability. 🙂

  86. Zoe November 26, 2014 at 4:06 pm -

    I would like a girl with ombré hair ( start out dark fades into blonde) and like fasion and dolls but is super athletic and plays music, with freckles!! And mabey blueish greenish eyes. And a very nice girl with lots of friends but usually sticks with her bestist friend Madalyn! And she should have a unique name but easy to remember.

    • Rudy November 27, 2014 at 7:33 am -

      I LOVE this hair idea. Let’s do something different that’s in style right now! I mean, it’s a GOTY right? Well, that’s what in style right now! Thanks for sharing.

  87. Unkown November 26, 2014 at 2:40 pm -

    I think they should make a white girl with hazel eyes and auburn colored hair named Taryn.
    She plays soccer, and loves to read. She is very competitive, along with her best friend Hope, who both play midfield in soccer. Taryn lives on a farm, and has a pet dog named Alaska ( or whatever) and a cat named Simba.
    At school one day, Taryn finds a sign up sheet for the school play, and she wants to try it out. Hope disagrees with her, saying how they need to stay focused on soccer, if they ever want to make it to the Fifa World Cup. Taryn tries to figure out if she will sign up while on her way home, a drunk driver hits her vehicle. Taryn now has some sort of disability ( I couldn’t figure out what would work that she would still be able to play soccer)

    This is all that came to mind right now, but this would be a good idea I think!

    HOWEVER THIS IS THE STORY… and i dont think a girl named GRACE will have this story… i think grace thomas will be a new doll just not doll of the year…

    Nine-year-old GOTY is always thinking up big ideas, like starting a business with her friends over the summer! When Mom announces a trip to Paris instead, GOTY gets on board, but it quickly seems as if none of her plans are working out the way she’d hoped. She and her French cousin aren’t getting along, and GOTY’s friends back home have started a business without her. Can she find the courage to stay open to new ideas and turn the summer around?

    Hollie. That sounds really nice. Green eyes or hazel . I would buy her. As far as my daughter she will be wanted no matter what she looks like. We are thinking of getting the my AG that has kits hair style but brown. Shorter hair would be nice but my daughter and her friends do like to play with it. But as a collector she would be mine. Although I’m sometims caught french braiding all of her 15 dolls.

  100. Hollie November 17, 2014 at 9:03 pm -

    The backstory amazon has sounds like a baker (cupcakes anyone?!?) I wish they’d do a lighter brunette auburn or light strawberry blonde with as bob cut like Kits’s but with wispy bangs (not every girl has such long hair), and bright blue eyes that pop against the light brown hair.

  101. Chasity November 17, 2014 at 9:32 am -

    I love the name autumn for goty. Also the softball player idea. That’s my daughter’s name and she’s an awesome first baseman. As far as that Tiffany girls comment on me being narrow minded, I’m sure AG would love to hire her for their marketing ideas. I guess it wouldn’t work. You have to hear others opinions. Any. I really don’t see anything wrong with the black dolls as far as the looks. My daughter though of getting Cecile but her hair looked like too much of a challenge for a girl of 6. I can only imagine how hard it is for the company to come up with new ideas every year not with just the girl of the year but all other dolls and accessories. We will have to wait and see over the next couple weeks if any pictures are leaked.. I would still love to see that 80s doll. Named autumn

    2015 GOTY

    Brown hair with carmel high lights blue eyes Disability

    Her Story

    A 10 year old girl who loves writing but gets stop by losing feeling in her right hand and maybe losing control over it to and her accessries come with a notebook and pencil

  104. Firestar November 15, 2014 at 5:13 pm -

    I have an idea.

    Name: Kiera (Key-era)
    Eyes: Dark Blue with grey and green flecks
    Skin: Medium-light, enough to be called Caucasian, but not really. (a little bit lighter than the Hawaiian one.) Around half German, part Middle Eastern, parts unknown. Currently resides in the Metropolitan area.
    Hair: Brown with golden streaks from the sun and fire-red dye.
    Hobby: I’m not simple-minded enough to put one hobby, so her hobbies are singing, running, and archery. She is also being taught Karate by her dad.
    Freckles: A couple.
    Outfit: She’s not an overkill fashonista. Probably a cat nebula shirt and practical grey shorts.
    Story: Young 12 year old Kiera has gone from naivety to social butterfly to kick-butt leader. But after the car accident and her father’s concussion, things start to change. Kiera becomes less outgoing and more reclusive and (for all of those who hate the american girl theme of pink) starts to really hate pink. What happened to Kiera? Can her parents and friends bring the old Kiera back?

  105. Can't say November 14, 2014 at 12:36 pm -

    I think they should make a doll with diabetes. I don’t know what her meet outfit could be but one of her accessories could be like that little tube thing that diabetic people have.

    HAIR – CARAMEL
    EYES- BLUE
    FRECKLES
    SKIN COLOR – I DON’T CARE
    HOBBY – ARCHERY
    NAME – AUTUMN

    her story could be that autumn was doing archery and she couldn’t focus because her stomach was bothering her. So her parents take her to the doctor and they say her blood sugar is low and autumn has to get bloodwork done. The results show that she has diabetes and Autumn is scared she won’t be the same

  106. Peelie_D November 12, 2014 at 11:58 am -

    I’ve read that GOTY 2015 is named Grace. If this is true, it’s disappointing on so many levels. But most importantly it means American Girl is REALLY out of ideas considering we’ve had a dog named grace and a beautiful doll with the same name. (Marie-Grace).

  107. Audrey November 11, 2014 at 2:58 pm -

    I was going to say it’ll be cool if they had a martial artist who broke her leg four weeks before a huge tournament. But then I realized that sounds a lot like McKenna.

  108. Ashlyn November 11, 2014 at 2:11 pm -

    I actually think they should make an Eskimo doll and have an igloo for one of their accessories. I think they could use a really unique storyline as well.

    • Peelie_D November 12, 2014 at 11:56 am -

      I would love to see this idea come to fruition!

  109. Abbey November 9, 2014 at 2:24 pm -

    I think the girl of the year should be Abbey Bogan.She would have mixed skin.Long curly black and brown hair.She would be half autistic and do karate.She would have a older brother named lucas.Her fqvorite animal would be a Koloa.Her fave color would be Green.Her life story would be about how she thought she could not do karate woth her autism. I WOULD BIE HER IMINDENTLY.because they don’t have an autistic girl of the year.

  110. Anika Sears November 6, 2014 at 1:37 pm -

    The doll should be French. That would be so cool, and if she had French clothing, that would be even better.

  111. Anika Sears November 6, 2014 at 9:23 am -

    I think the idea of the new doll sounds great, but DONT MAKE IT DISABLDE.

  112. Anika Sears November 6, 2014 at 8:40 am -

    Don’t have a doll with a disability because the people how don’t have disabilities won’t buy it because they don’t want a doll that is messed up!

    • es November 8, 2014 at 11:29 am -

      That’s kind of a mean thing to say if you consider the implications of that statement. Having a disability doesn’t mean being “messed up”.

  113. SEB November 3, 2014 at 7:10 pm -

    I love the GOTY dolls but none of them are relatable for me. Lots of the girls like sports such as dance, gymnastics, etc., or else they like things with nature and animals. Now I love nature, but I am not a huge nature person, and while I love animals they aren’t my passion. And I am no sports person.

    I want an American Girl who is creative. She likes to sing. She has a flair for acting and being on stage. She loves to write, whether it’s songs, or stories. She hates math and is very easily annoyed by her big brother, and her little brother is a nuisance.

    She will be struggling with common things- bullying, not getting along with family, etc. And the story could be about her getting a big part in a play, or about a big writing contest she wants to win, but she has some competition- a fellow classmate who is as equally gifted in Language Arts.

    American Girl claims that the dolls “reflect[s] the interests and experiences of real girls today.” First off, not very many girls really go through some of the things the GOTY go through. Second of all- I am one of these described “girls of today”, and I can assure you, NONE of the girls reflect my hobbies and interests, and the ONLY GOTY I can relate to is Chrissa with the bullying thing.

    Perhaps she could even have a disability such as Asperger’s or a learning disability or something like that. And not like with McKenna.

    I also think they need to make one of the girls a big bookworm- not very many girls these days truly appreciate books. It would be nice to see someone who DOES like them.

    American Girl needs to make a GOTY that is more creative (a writer, singer, actress, songwriter), and they ESPECIALLY need one with a disability. Girls of today with disabilities need to know they are not being forgotten. Girls without disabilities can use the movie and books to help them better understand girls with disabilities and it could be a very valuable learning tool for them.

    This GOTY does not sound like the type that is super sporty or who will have some huge thing happen to change everything- not like the typical girls, and I like it. But perhaps they could try to reach out towards the girls who have such interests that I mentioned above and perhaps even consider a girl who is a very good musician trying to get into some sort of orchestra, or a talented math student who is going to competition and is stressed. Just something like this would be nice, a change from the usual.

    Also- a black girl would be nice. Even someone with glasses would be nice.

    I could keep going on but I won’t. Just the opinions of an average American Girl.

    This is my idea for goty; After 12 year old Hana Parker goes through a dramatic stage after her mom dies from kidney cancer only a few days afted Hanas birthday. Now Hana and her father are forced to move to Washington for his new job as a medical worker, Hana finds out she has been diagnosed with ADHD. At her new school no one really seems to notice her or say a simple hello, until she meets emma. Emma is a awesome friend who always hangs out with Hana and they become best friends. But Hana has a bigger problem. Hanas dad suffers from a sickness (insert sickness here) And hanas grades are subsiding. Hana finds a love tennis and writing books. When hana finds a book writing essay for a prize of 1000 dollars Hana has hopr again. Continung tennis hana finally finishes her essay and wins! Her dad finally gets better and her grades go up again. After finding new friends she has hopes of being a author when she grows up.

      Love this! I want a GOTY who is into these kinds of things! None of the GOTY show an interest in writing or anything like that and this idea sounds wonderful!

      I am an aspiring writer as well and would love to see a story like this unfold!

    I think they should make a black doll that plays basketball. That is a great idea because every girl of the year had been white not black and they haven’t had a basket ball playing doll.

  135. christy October 21, 2014 at 9:32 pm -

    Well I’m a kid who liked these dolls SOO much when I was younger. I (being white) probably wouldn’t have liked a black doll so much when I was younger because I wouldn’t have really connected to her so much. However. they are called AMERICAN girls, not WHITE girls, so I think american girl really needs to make a girl with diversity. There are so many unused ideas and they are starting to re-do things. I feel like american girl was at its prime in 2000-2010 ish. And now is sort of going Down hill. Does anyone see what I mean? Like now they have mini dolls at McDonald’s..that wasn’t something I was expecting from them…NOT SAYING ITS BAD. also, I think they should make a girl with a disability or a black doll. Not at the same time for the same doll. Becasue to me that feels like to much of a risk. I probably sound really un-educated. I’m sorry if I offended anyone

      Yeah but a lot of white kids would still want a black doll. I know when I was young and Addy came out, I wanted her. She was pretty, and I had read all of her books and thought she was very brave, and I thought it was cool that her mom worked at a dress shop, and she looked like one of my best friends (I dunno, now I think it would be weird to have a doll that looked like one of my friends, but back then I didn’t think it was weird at all). My mom ended up getting me the one that looked like me instead, basically a modern day Kirsten, but I would have been happy with Addy or any of those dolls at that point in my life. So I think a GOTY of colour would work just fine for AG. I do agree that the quality of the line has gone downhill recently, but I’m thinking since the early 2000s, not 2009-2010.

    PLEASE MAKE A BLACK DOLL AMERICAN GIRL, AMERICAN GIRL IS GOING TO LOOSE THERE BUSINESS IN A COUPLE OF YEARS IF THEY DON’T MAKE A DAME BLACK DOLL

    They should make a BLACK DOLL

    • es October 21, 2014 at 6:42 am -

      Agreed. Of the current GOTY line, 10 of the 14 girls are white. 8 of those 10 are even blonde or light haired, so I guess AG doesn’t even like to have brunettes as part of their GOTY line. 3 of the 4 dolls of colour are half white. My group of friends growing up was a lot more evenly mixed than that, as I’m sure most girls’ groups of friends are currently. I felt fortunate when I was young that there was a doll that looked like me, but wondered how my friends felt about there not being one that looked like them. White blondes and redheads aren’t AG’s entire customer base, and I wish they would do more to represent all the other children that are in their customer base, instead of making more dolls that are essentially just younger Barbies.

  139. es October 20, 2014 at 1:13 pm -

    I’d love to see a GOTY who is into STEM, maybe something like robotics, or making video games, or she’s just really good at maths and wants to join the school maths team. But she’s worried about joining, because there are only boys on the team. And her dad, who is in the Army, just told the family that he would be deployed again soon. In the end she joins the maths(or robotics, or video games programming) team at school, because she knows it would make her dad proud.
    I would want her to be black, or middle eastern, or latina. Possibly even Muslim, because AG could address a lot of relevant issues with prejudice through a book if they did it properly. Her mom could be a stay at home mom, but also a first generation immigrant, which is another hot issue in the US right now. And even though she’s a STEM kid, she would be into a lot of girly stuff and be fashionable as well, because there’s a “super nerdy smart kid” trope on a lot of kids’ shows that is just totally untrue. She would also like basketball, and basically she would be a more well rounded kid with actual issues to deal with, unlike most recent GOTYs.

    skin light

    favorite colors blue & purple

  147. Emily October 17, 2014 at 5:17 pm -

  148. veronyka October 17, 2014 at 10:56 am -

    i think that caucasion mexican amrican dont get the represintation that they daservemexicans caucasion , amrican or africanamrican

  149. victoria October 17, 2014 at 10:49 am -

    rly w/ purple extentio-

    and her last name should be peterson

  152. Elliana October 17, 2014 at 9:27 am -

    and her hair should be REALLY curly like she got a puirm and her name should be soanja.

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:33 am -

      I LOVE curly hair, it’s just so hard to keep up with sometimes!

  153. Elliana October 17, 2014 at 9:24 am -

    i think the GOTY should have black hair with Permanent streaks of blond and brown hair with blue eyes and a skin tone kind of like caramel her carer should be a fire dancer and her cloths should be black fabric with rips that are rainbow colored and it would be a ripped up logish skirt and a tank top with a v neck and a triangle cut out of the back and in those triangles there are striped rainbow fabric to fill in the triangles her shoes should be a really high heel and her eccesories should be a back pack to put all her supplies in and a fire buton and safty goggles with maby like a water bottle and the fire wand could have remuveible fire

  154. veronyka October 16, 2014 at 10:01 am -

    brown hair
    strat hair
    brown eyes

    • Elliana October 17, 2014 at 9:21 am -

      don’t you mean strait hair and by the way that is way too much brown it wold be cool if they made a midget doll.

      • Morgan November 29, 2014 at 2:11 pm -

        Well I have wavy brown hair and freckles and brown eyes so I have a lot of brown and I can’t find a doll to look like me

  155. veronyka October 16, 2014 at 9:59 am -

    I think the doll should have a diffrent way for a name like veronyka acevedo and her talant should be cheer.her colture should be mexico

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:33 am -

      I love unique names.

  156. veronyka October 16, 2014 at 9:58 am -

    I think the doll should have a diffrent way for a name like veronyka and her talant should be cheer.

  157. Alyssa October 16, 2014 at 6:05 am -

    🙂

  158. Alyssa October 16, 2014 at 6:04 am -

    Ya autumn is a good name

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:34 am -

  159. Ellen October 16, 2014 at 6:03 am -

    I agree with alyssa

  160. Alyssa October 16, 2014 at 5:59 am -

    I like the name autumn miller and how she should be in cheer or basketball

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:35 am -

      Basketball would be a fun idea. There are so many things you could do for that!

      • Fiona October 25, 2014 at 10:17 am -

        I play basket ball and it is soo much fun maybe basket ball is not a bad idea

  161. Alyssa October 16, 2014 at 5:58 am -

    I think brynn’s idea is good

  162. Emily October 15, 2014 at 7:13 pm -

    Eliza’s is a great idea!

  163. Brynn October 15, 2014 at 6:41 pm -

    I also think for the kids with diabetes autumn should be diabetic.NONE HAVE PROBABLY EVEN THOUGHT OF MAKING A DOLL HAVE DIABETES.i think it should be really cool.

  164. Brynn October 15, 2014 at 6:37 pm -

    I think she should come in a basketball shirt that has a number on it.Her shirt should be white blue and purple. So should her shorts.What she should come with or her acsesseries should be a water bottle that lookes like it has water.She should also have a basketball and a blue hat the same color as her shirt and shorts.Her shoes should be white sneakers with the same color laces.Some of the things you should be able to buy her are a basketball hoops,and something that looks like the floor of a basketball place that sticks to the ground or it can be a mat.

    • Elliana October 17, 2014 at 9:05 am -

      Great Idea

  165. Emily October 15, 2014 at 6:36 pm -

    This is who the girl of the year should be(please note these are not based off me or anyone I know!)

    HAIR- Black with aqua highlights
    EYES-brown or green
    SKIN-black or medium
    Fave Color-scarlet or purple
    Fave Food- enchiladas,chow main,pizza,cupcakes,or cookies
    Pet-chihuahua Blossom or Buster
    NAME-Evelia

  166. Emily October 15, 2014 at 6:26 pm -

    I personally think that the doll should be black, Asian, or Hispanic because american girl has never really came out with these dolls. Having a disability is what some girls live with and should really be considered. I understand american girl has came out with The Berry Wheelchair, but if you ask me it looks like one of the ones you see at a hospital. American girl is a great company and is kid friendly too ,but what most over look is that not everybody can run or jump or do other things that most kids can do.

  167. Katie October 15, 2014 at 4:03 pm -

    So… On Amazon, does it show the cover?

  168. Brynn October 14, 2014 at 6:38 pm -

    I also think autumn and jaelyn should both have strait hair

  169. Brynn October 14, 2014 at 6:37 pm -

    Autumn should either be in cheer and she was the flyer and she fell or be in basketball and brake her wrist when she fell she brakes her leg and the mean girl (Brittany) is making fun of her because she can’t play on her team for a while

  170. Brynn October 14, 2014 at 6:28 pm -

    I think they should make a girl named autumn miller! I love that name! She should be light skin an blond hair with red highlights in her hair and her hair should be really long.her eyes should be grayish blue. I also think she should play basket ball.she should have a sister or a friend too. I think the sister or friend should be named jaelyn smith if it’s not her sister.she should have black hair that is really long.She should have green eyes and should be in softball.

    • Brynn October 14, 2014 at 6:32 pm -

      She should brake her wrist while playing basketball and be afraid that she will never be able to score points for her team or play basketball ever again.

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:36 am -

      I love the name too!

  171. Meredith October 13, 2014 at 5:17 pm -

    I think they should make an archer. You know, like a girl who shoots a bow and some arrows. She would have red wavy hair with peach skin and freckles. Everybody is saying they should make a basketball soccer or softball player and while that is understood, you can get “me dolls” and buy the outfits at the store. Also, I think we should use our girl of the year doll to make a tom boy. Her name would be Autumn because of her red hair and her freckles. She would wear something that looked like UGG boots or BEARPAWS. She could also wear a grey and purple striped sweatshirt with normal blue-jeans. Under her sweatshirt the would have a dark green T-shirt.
    HER TRAITS:
    EYES: BLUEISH GREENISH
    SIBLINGS: OLDER SISTER
    HAIR: USUALLY IN A PONYTAIL
    PETS: GOLDFISH AND A SNAKE
    BEST FRIEND: VIKKI WHO IS BLACK
    FEAR: BEES
    FAVORITE COLOR: PURPLE AND TURQUOISE
    LIKES: ARCHERY
    FAVORITE ANIMAL: OWL
    FAVORITE FOOD: CUCUMBERS
    FAVORITE SNACK: POPCORN
    FAVORITE DESSERT: CHOCOLATE CAKE

    • Andrea October 17, 2014 at 7:19 pm -

      that’s what she should look like Meredith

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:36 am -

      This is an awesome idea!

  172. Maddie October 13, 2014 at 12:05 pm -

    I think it should be a soccer player and an animal trainer and also an artist.
    Name-Emma
    Eyes-blue
    Hair-light brown with blonde highlights
    About-A goalie who broke her hand and is afraid her team will never win again and reminds herself you don’t have to win all the time to be the best.Mean while she also helps animals in the shelter and trains them but she can’t because her broken hand but somehow she get’s through it.And then get’s back and does what she loves drawing and painting, training animals and being a goalie.
    Traits-animal lover,sporty,artistic.friendly.

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:36 am -

      A soccer player would be cool.

  173. Nikki October 12, 2014 at 4:08 pm -

    I think AG should consider an Asian-American GOTY. The only Asian doll they had was Ivy Ling. Ivy was a “friend” of a historical character, she doesn’t look Asian, and she has since been discontinued.

  174. Haylee October 10, 2014 at 1:36 pm -

    Her name should be Maddie

  175. Frankie October 8, 2014 at 9:12 pm -

    I think the girl of the year should be a basketball player who thinks shes not good enough because a mean girl shoots her down and because of her thoughtful freinds she doesn’t give up.
    HAIR-straight light brown blonde highlights.
    NAME-Keeley or Alayna
    EYES-light brown or hazel
    She should also live on a farm in a small town.

    • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:40 am -

      I love the basketball idea!

  176. Anika Sears October 8, 2014 at 2:50 pm -

    I think we need a doll that is from the city with dark curly hair, not like an Afro, but nice big curls. She would also pretty blue eyes, with medium skin. She would have really nice clothing like, dresses, blouses, skirts, and jeans.

  177. Skye October 7, 2014 at 3:19 pm -

    I believe that AG should have a handicapped doll, and being handicapped myself I could at least relate to her somehow. I’m tired of AG making non-handicapped dolls. It makes me kind of upset cause the only thing they do to make a doll not be in perfect condition is break a bone. Seriously. I have never broken a bone in my life. All my problems I’ve had I was born with. I also would like them to make a doll with brown medium length curly hair. I also have a few ideas of an ideal GOTY.
    (Keep in mind I do not relate to any of this exept for the mild Cerabral Palsey and the filming passion.)
    Karsyn is a young 9 year old girl who has mild Cerabral Palsey. She has a strong passion for filming and hopes to be a producer someday. She lives in Atlanta and when she visits St Louis for the summer because of a surgery, she meets a young girl named Alexa who has mild Cerabral Palsey as well, and she is having her first surgery at the same hospital as Karsyn.
    They become BFFs and hang out everyday until their surgerys.
    As Karsyn gets out of her surgery, which is very quick, she sees Alexa going in to her room. She askes her parents if she can stay to see Alexa. Her parents agree and they stay. When Karsyn sees Alexa’s parents in a worried state, Karsyn herself gets worried. When she askes what happened, She gets an unpleasant answer. Something has gone wrong in Alexa’s arms and she’ll be ok but she’ll need to have an extra surgery to install some metal and get her arm in its origional

    • Elliana October 18, 2014 at 12:33 am -

      i think if she is handy caped the store will charge like 200$ because if she is handy cap she will need life crutches or a wheel chair and they charged an extra 10 bucks just for that extra stupid hair peace that comes w isabelle i think you should b able to buy the hair piece sepratly

  178. Sheila October 6, 2014 at 6:37 pm -

    I wish the doll could be Indian.

    • Emma October 15, 2014 at 3:34 pm -

      Same, yo! And since the 2015 spotlight was stolen by Coco, they should do either a black or Indian doll. I mean, the 2013 Miss America was Indo-American!
      you know how isabelle and marisol both dance? Well, in goty 2015 book 2 the person has too much to deal with just like nikki in book2! When are they going to be original?

  179. Rebekah October 3, 2014 at 9:46 pm -

    They shoud make a cheerleader doll

    • Bri November 14, 2014 at 8:00 pm -

      A cheerleader doll would be a lot better then the regular cheering outfit. Their should be many more accessories for the cheer girl.

  180. Eliza October 1, 2014 at 8:07 am -

    This is my idea for a GOTY:
    Cassiday Arten is an aspiring actress and singer. When Cass gets the opportunity to audition for the main role at the city’s biggest theater that is a huge step closer to her dream, to star Broadway, she is over the moon excited! On her way to the late night audition, a car wreck shakes her world. Will she be able to overcome her new disability and let her talents shine?

    Hair: Brown with honey highlights
    Eyes: Dark Brown
    Skin: Tan
    Her fingernails would be painted… that could be her feature like Isabel’s hair extensions?
    After the car wreck, she could be blind, deaf, be paralyzed, or have cerebral palsy?
    I think this would make a great GOTY

    • Emily October 15, 2014 at 7:02 pm -

      Best idea ever 4 doll!

    • Emily October 15, 2014 at 7:07 pm -

    • Em October 19, 2014 at 10:25 am -

      Love it!!!

    • KittyLisse November 9, 2014 at 6:17 pm -

      Ironically, they haven’t done the singer thing, which would’ve been more original than Isabelle, the aspiring SECOND dancer.

    • Elizabeth long November 27, 2014 at 5:43 pm -

      So cool!!

  181. Marilyn September 30, 2014 at 3:02 pm -

    It would be a huge step in the right direction to have a doll with a disability. As a parent of a daughter with Aspergers, who happens to be a huge AG fan. I would definitely buy it.

    I did not buy Isabelle. The last thing we wanted was another blond doll with a tutu. I also think any visually ethnic doll would also be nice:)

  182. Christina September 29, 2014 at 7:22 pm -

    I just want to see what the girl looks like and what her talent is!! PLEAS SHOW US SOON LIKE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D*******

  183. Faith/agsprinkles14 September 27, 2014 at 7:27 am -

    I want a teen with a photographic memory like me! hair color is a mix of red and ginger she has curly hair, hazel or grey eyes. her name is Kathy Beth Fishers peach skin. her movies about when Kathy Beth school is over and they go to a summer camp and she is upset cause she wants to be in a debate show and a other girl is a bully and tries to beat her.

  184. destinee September 23, 2014 at 5:36 pm -

  185. marissa September 20, 2014 at 6:42 pm -

    I think the girl of the year of 2015 shoud be a runner.They have never made a runner or a cheerleader either of them would be cool.I can’t wait to get her.But i completely forgot when she comes out(a little help here).

  188. Chasity September 4, 2014 at 7:23 pm -

    I’ve seen several comments on a black AG doll and I’m not sure it’s a good idea. When I visit the store all I see are white girls with white dolls or black girls with white dolls. The hair is an issue too. Who wants to finger style and have a spray bottle all the time. Also I see people want a doll that’s handicaped. Well go buy a wheelchair or hearing aid. My girls play softball but I’m not partitioning for the goty to be one. I just bought the softball gear. You have to sell what the majority wants. But I can only speak of what I see at the Georgia store. Btw I would love to see an 80s doll

    • Lauren September 24, 2014 at 8:54 am -

      Not every black doll has to have super thick hair. If they can make a doll with curly hair like Samantha or Caroline, they can do it for a black doll. They can even make some black girls with straight hair. Some black girls do have straight hair, you know. They just choose not to.

      I understand girls aren’t buying black dolls, but American Girl doesn’t make them appealing either. They always give the best outfits to white dolls, like pink and glitter. If they did the same for their African American dolls, it would sell better, especially if the doll came with a book series and a movie. Madison from myscene Barbie was the best-selling black doll because she was gorgeous.

      My American Girl is not good promotion because there are many random dolls with many outfits, and neither one is promoted over the other. Girls will pick the doll that looks most like them or like their friends.

      I think people just want something original. Something that hasn’t been tried before. Some variety. GOTY is getting kind of lame and boring because they keep coming up with the same ideas over and over with a minor twist. They released a boring blonde character, and American Girl’s sales have plummeted for GOTY as a result. She danced just like GOTY 2005 Marisol. It just wasn’t interesting. It wasn’t interesting enough for little girls, either apparently, because sales dropped. Saige’s sales were higher, and boost American Girl up 5% last year. That can’t be said about Isabelle.

      • Bri November 14, 2014 at 2:33 pm -

        I agree with u very nice ideas

        • JaidW December 6, 2014 at 3:46 pm -

          I like unusual names like saige or kanani, but I’ve got an idea of my own, but they have more than one dark skinned doll. For example, Kaya, Kanani, Addy, and Josefina, Sonali, and Marisol . But I agree, they do have to many white AG dolls. However I like Mia, and Isabelle, Kailey is my favorite. I don’t think we need a doll with a disability because we have a wheelchair and the crutches, and I like all the AG dolls for who they are. But they do need some new Ideas for books, I love to write and am very creative so I could help!;)

    • Tiffany October 5, 2014 at 4:04 pm -

      Chastity, what a narrow minded comment. Do you really not understand the value of AG having a GOTY that brown girls can relate to? I would go on to explain the importance of ethnically diverse GOTYs, but I’m fairly certain that my words would be wasted on you.

    • AGirlwith18 October 8, 2014 at 9:33 pm -

      As an employee of the Washington DC American Girl store, I know everyone around me was disgusted that Isabelle, a girl from DC, was not black. Don’t get us wrong, Isabelle is beautiful and a great character, but actually isn’t selling as well as perceived because many people did expect a black doll. I mean she is from a place thats 50.1% African American and we get a blonde haired girl? She really appealed to the younger girls who haven’t been into American Girl for very long because the older ones know she looks very similar to other GOTY.
      I have to agree, they do not make the African American dolls appealing. As a black buyer who has 18 dolls, I didn’t get my first black doll (number 10 for me, Cecile) until I started working at AG! I DONT LOOK LIKE the dolls they make. My baby cousin doesn’t look like that, my sister, my mother. Some black women have those wide noses and puffy cheeks, but not ALL. There are 6 different light skin face molds now and only two dark skin and neither of the dark skin molds look black. One looks Brazilian and the other, a sad attempt.
      Cecile was the best black doll they ever made, also number 44. Not because of their hazel eyes but because they don’t have that sad attempt at African features.
      Clearly I LOVE American Girl, or I wouldn’t be such a collector, but seeing an African American GOTY after 13 years of dolls and 14 dolls isn’t that much to ask. (2001, 2003, 2005, 2006-2014).
      They Girl of the Year is supposed to represent American Society today, and not only does the little blonde girl’s story need to be told.

      (PS. People can say, “Oh they haven’t had just white dolls they have had Hispanic, Pacific Islander, and Hawaiian.” To that I say, “American actually coated each of those characters with a Caucasian nationality. Jess being half Scottish, and Kanani, in fact being only 1/4 Hawaiian!)

        I am also hoping for a black GOTY. I would love to see some long silky black locks. It doesn’t always have to be corkscrew curls! Or a cute A-line would be good too! I’m sure American Girl has heard our cries, so if it’s not something really good and new to the GOTY world, they might hear a huge outcry from us next year!

      • Rudy October 18, 2014 at 11:40 am -

        I love your views an ideas. I’m sure as an employee of the store you have heard a lot of great ideas from customers too!

      • Susan Johnson October 28, 2014 at 9:05 am -

        A black doll would be nice, but wasn’t Addie black? I love AG, but I have to agree that Isabelle was a disappointment.

    • Lily October 13, 2014 at 6:34 pm -

      Cecile has sold out faster than Marie-Grace

    • Jordyn October 19, 2014 at 12:28 pm -

      I agree. But I do think they should make one with hearing aids considering that I wear them. I also play softball so it would be nice to see athletic girls

      • KittyLisse November 9, 2014 at 6:14 pm -

        I also would love a character who plays softball. Wearing a hearing aid would make it better. Even twins as someone else mentioned. Perhaps combining these ideas, with one twin wearing a hearing aid and the other not, and the twins comparing themselves…I’m a twin so I like the idea. 🙂

  189. Lyndon September 3, 2014 at 4:14 pm -

    I think they should have a goty with high functioning autism, asthma, & a thyroid condition
    Her accessories would include a mon-sun pill container, Medicean bottles with pills (not real ones of coarse), a nebulizer, a pulseox, some toys(dolls, stuffed animals, a puzzle, etc), a phone, a MP3 player, a laptop, a tablet, a DVD player, a tv, a pet dog named puzzle he’d be a chocolate lab puppy, she’s also come with a CD player some fake CDs some fake DVDs, some books, a piggy bank, an art kit complete with all sorts of art supplies, & some stationary with her first initial on it
    And her clothes would include footless footies and some matching slippers, some dresses, shorts, Capri pants, underwear, bras, skirts, tank tops, t shirts,tennis shoes, high tops, mules, high heel sandles, flip flops, sandles, pajama tank top, pajama pants, a set of different colored ponytail holders

    • Em October 18, 2014 at 11:27 am -

      I think all of y’all are so creative in thinking all of this up! Bc most of the past dolls are so boring! Isabelle was the worst they ever made!!! My own opinion, btw. Anyway, I like the diabetes or asthma idea. We really don’t need some blonde ballerina with pink extensions. That is so commonplace! I like your ideas, victoria, just not the purple extensions– that is so fake!!! Maybe a girl with super curly hair (red) that’s long, and maybe she
      has to wear a brace?? Just some random ideas!! Her name– madeline or olivia. Well that’s all I wanted to say, thank you!!

      • agdoll isabelle October 18, 2014 at 1:49 pm -

        your mean i love isabelle

        • Em October 19, 2014 at 10:35 am -

          I told you that was my own opinion. I’m very sorry if I hurt your feelings, but isabelle isn’t really original!!

          • tara October 26, 2014 at 5:32 pm -

            i agree i love isable but you are so nice it doesent matter

      • KittyLisse November 9, 2014 at 6:09 pm -

        I completely agree that Isabelle is boring. We already have had a GOTY dancer in 2005 that ALSO loved ballet. It wasn’t very interesting. Then Isabelle had a boring hairstyle and wore too pink. Too cliche.

        I doubt 2015 will be any different. It sounds unrealistic and mashed together.

  190. Katharine September 2, 2014 at 2:33 pm -

    They should have girl of the year that are twins. Kat and Mel. Kat with light Brown hair with Streaks of dark purple with grey eyes. and Mel with blonde Hair blue eyes with Black Streaks in hair.

    • 1417942 October 17, 2014 at 1:55 pm -

      I totally agree!!!!!!

      • katy November 2, 2014 at 7:12 pm -

        I have always thought there should be twins named parker and lidnsey parker likes sports has grey eyes and orange hair and lidnsey is a girly girl who likesmakeup and shopping and has brown eyes and blong hair

        • Camdyn November 18, 2014 at 2:39 am -

          I think they should make a total rebel with a I and pore hair it should be based own how to get back on the right path and not to go down hill and her name we need a name commet with one

    • Karmen November 10, 2014 at 5:28 pm -

      I totally agree that would be amazing

    • Bri November 14, 2014 at 1:47 pm -

      Yes that would be cool. I have twins and it would be nice for each twin to gat their own doll

  191. Odin August 31, 2014 at 4:35 pm -

    I think they should have a softball player or something like that.

    • Jadyn September 20, 2014 at 1:15 pm -

      I agree what do u thing would be a good name?!?!?!

      • Suxane October 12, 2014 at 7:16 pm -

        I agree

      • agtruth December 6, 2014 at 1:10 pm -

        They should make an ag with stuff that people can actully do like Saige and Chrissa.

    • Jordyn October 19, 2014 at 12:26 pm -

      I agree. I love playing softball even with my disability. All my coaches have my back and I never stop smiling because even though people have mean opinions of me playing, it doesn’t bother me. My disability is hearing. I wear hearing aids. A lot of people don’t think I can play like other kids, but I have proven them wrong.

      • Natalie November 13, 2014 at 11:32 am -

        they should honor those with disabilities

  192. Sara August 30, 2014 at 12:35 pm -

    I love american girl can not wait until 2015 GOTY comes out

    • Sallie November 1, 2014 at 11:06 am -

      It’s grace her name is grace

    • Blues_food November 15, 2014 at 9:58 am -

      I totally agree! I personally want a Persian American Girl Of The Year. They have never tried this idea before and I think it would be amazing! Her name could be Sanaz and she would be an archer. Sadly, she would get bullied by others because of her race and and gets pushed down. But she recovers from this breakdown and goes back to her passion. She should also have problems with her grades (I know my parents are REALLY strict on grades, Im also Persian) and her parents would get take away her supplies. She works hard on her grades and secretly practices archery. Eventually, she goes to a competition and gets first place.

      HER TRAITS:
      HAIR: An ombre (dark brown to a light brown) and medium long hair
      EYES: Green with brown specks
      SKIN: Pale but a slight tan
      ONE MOLE BY HER RIGHT EYE

      Thanks 🙂

      • Mia November 27, 2014 at 12:31 am -

        I totally agree and she sounds like me with the ombre hair and eyes haha and fair skin, sounds like a doll I would definitely buy 😉

        • Rudy November 27, 2014 at 7:32 am -

          I never thought of the doll having the Ombre hair style. I love it!!! I think it will add value down the road when the style isn’t as popular anymore. Plus, I’m styling the look right now 😉

  193. Neecie August 22, 2014 at 2:41 pm -

    They Should make a black girl of the year 2015

    • gardenmomof2 September 28, 2014 at 11:22 pm -

      I totally Agree!!! It is just way overdue.

    • Ava October 30, 2014 at 4:03 pm -

      Your Right! I hope 2015 is brown!

    • at is my life November 10, 2014 at 5:03 am -

      I don’t agree with you they should have it actually pretty . but I mean I would still get her she would be cute like addy

      • A grown up November 10, 2014 at 8:08 pm -

        Your comment is racist and incredibly inappropriate.

        • Natalie November 13, 2014 at 11:29 am -

          It is not racist! American Girl just needs make a black GOTY. They make too much Caucasian dolls. They need to try making a black GOTY. And if nobody buys them if they are black, they are stupid and I will by them. And if American Girl makes a black doll and nobody buys her, those people would be more than likely a white girl.

          • ZoeyFromLondon November 13, 2014 at 2:38 pm -

            URM FYI Sonali Was a Black Goty for 2009 So Chill Guys ((:

        • Mallory December 15, 2014 at 2:13 pm -

          I think the American girl doll 2015 should be Lucy and inspired and brave softball player.I think it be really fun to create outfits for Lucy. And her uniforms. She should have blonde hair with blue eyes with really long hair and her team should be the University future stars! Plz use my ideas!

      • Sydney November 30, 2014 at 4:48 pm -

        Your an idiot loser we have had ALL white dolls let her be black FOR ONCE

        • Marissa December 13, 2014 at 11:29 pm -

          Not true they’ve had ethnic dolls. Marisol was Hispanic, Jess was Pacific Islander, then during Chrissa’s year they had her best friend, Sonali who was Indian. So they haven’t ALL been white.

        • Marissa December 13, 2014 at 11:30 pm -

          Not true they’ve had ethnic dolls. Marisol was Hispanic, Jess was Pacific Islander/Asian and Kanani too was Pacific Islander, then during Chrissa’s year they had her best friend, Sonali who was Indian. So they haven’t ALL been white.

      • Me December 7, 2014 at 4:08 am -

        your so rude and racist

      • allie December 13, 2014 at 8:37 am -

        Ok so u r……RASIST so stop u r probably as white as snow

    • Natalie November 13, 2014 at 11:30 am -

      They really should. They are leaving black ones out.

      • Peyton ning November 22, 2014 at 7:11 am -

        They should make it black!the only black doll is Addy!who is with me! I Am thinking that it should be black!only one of them is black!

    • Tiffany November 16, 2014 at 5:43 pm -

      I just want one with brown hair,brown eyes ,and has freckles

      • Morgan November 29, 2014 at 1:36 pm -

        Omg really! I have brown hair and freckles and brown eyes and I really need a doll to look like me

    • Isabella November 22, 2014 at 1:51 pm -

      It would be really racist for american girl to have 14 or15girl of the year dolls and to not have a single biracial doll exept for kanani.

    • shannon November 28, 2014 at 6:01 am -

      you are right.A black girl with curly hair

    • mashyla December 9, 2014 at 7:04 pm -

      They should have an african american girl doll of the year thats just mean cuz they have never had one all they got is hawian and white people they dont have nan one black person SHAME SHAME SHAME THEY SO RACIST

    • yoyo December 19, 2014 at 3:33 am -
