American Girl’s 2014 Girl of the Year

American Girl Doll of the Year run $120. It’s a steep price for a doll but each one comes with her own extraordinary story of triumph and acceptance. Typically each doll comes with a story book where you and your child learn all about the girl and her life. Isabelle has 3 stories devoted to sharing her tale. I’m guessing the popularity of her dance background might have something to do with it.
