All Dolled Up: The Enduring Triumph of American Girl

Share Being a nine-year-old girl is a very specific thing. You aren't a little kid, but you aren't not. You think about what you like to do and who you are and maybe worry a little bit about what that means to other people. You gain independence, bit by bit. Being a nine-year-old girl is very special. And if you were a nine-year-old girl at any point during the last 30 years, you are almost certainly familiar with American Girl. It very well may have been an essential part of your nine-year-old girldom. From the beginning, from the time it was a mere kernel of an idea scrawled on a postcard, American Girl was engineered for nine-year-old girls. It all began when Pleasant Rowland, who was working for an educational publishing company at the time, took a trip to Colonial Williamsburg. As she recalled at American Girl's 25th anniversary celebration, it went something like this: "I've been down in Williamsburg this week and had an idea. What do you think of it. A series of books about nine-year-old girls growing up at different times in American history. "There would be six books for each and the stories would reflect the important moments of girlhood, and how it changed and how it stayed the same over the years," she continued. "There would be a doll for each character with historically accurate clothes and accessories so girls could play out the stories. There might even be matching clothes for the girls. " The goal was to make history personal and also to fill a gap in the market: there were baby dolls and Barbie dolls, but no dolls designed to be the age of girls who were actually playing with them. When Rowland began telling people about her idea she was "met with disbelief and patronizing tolerance, summarized as, 'Are you kidding. Historical dolls in the day and age of Barbie. She and Rowland conceptualized the first three characters: Molly McIntire, Samantha Parkington, and Kirsten Larson. Each lived in a different era, with patriotic Molly growing up during World War II, wealthy Samantha right after the Victorian age, and immigrant Kirsten in the middle of the 19th century. For example, as Tripp explains , "We knew that we wanted Samantha to have lived at the turn of the last century because we felt that that was an enormous turning point for women. " Tripp would go on to write the books for Samantha and Molly, as well as Felicity Merriman, Josefina Montoya, and Kit Kittredge. Source: Racked - All
