American Girl Doll Of The Year 2019 + giveaway!

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC.

As you know the girls and I had a special pre-holiday little date at the American Girl store a few weeks back. Since then, we’ve been having endless conversations about who we think the new American Girl Doll Of The Year will be. Last year, we welcomed Luciana the astronaut, the year before a poet Gabriela and her story about how she overcomes her challenge with stuttering, and the year before that Lea Clark at photographer that loved to travel! The girls had some pretty good guesses this year – a veterinarian, ballerina, teacher, president, but on January 1st we welcomed Blaire Wilson – a chef in training!

Siella and Gemma immediately related to Blaire as they not only love cooking and baking with me in the kitchen, but also love watching the cooking shows like Top Chef Junior! Blaire excels at gathering people around the dinner table but needs help finding balance between the digital world and the real world—like many people today. Through Blaire, girls will learn the importance of staying connected to the people they care about and that this means more than clicking and swiping—it means truly being there.

Blaire’s story unfolds in a chapter book series written by Jennifer Castle and published by Scholastic. In the two books, available now, Blaire loves to put her cooking and decorating talents to good use on her family’s sustainable farm and bed-and-breakfast in upstate New York. When the opportunity to plan the farm’s first wedding arises, Blaire jumps in with gusto. However, between overextending herself to create the perfect farm-fancy event and a newly diagnosed food sensitivity that makes her self-conscious, Blaire finds herself more engaged on her devices than at real-life gatherings with others. Ultimately, through the help of her family and friends, Blaire finds a healthy balance and learns the value of being fully present at every occasion.

The new Girl Of The Year comes to life for girls via a beautiful 18-inch doll, featuring bright green eyes and curly red hair. Blaire’s world features an array of outfits, accessories, and products that reflect her life on Pleasant View Farm, including a sweet lamb and piglet, festive party decor, and Blaire’s Family Farm Restaurant, with everything needed to play out a show stopping farm-to-table celebration.

I’m super excited to see Blaire join American Girl’s family of characters and timeless stories designed to help girls think about their own character and who they want to be! It’s so fun listening to Siella and Gemma chat about what they want to be when they grow up. Their answers are always changing but I love that they are already starting to think about it! And I’m super excited to be giving a Blaire Wilson away to one lucky SITC reader! GOOD LUCK!

  1. I’d love to win this for my daughter. She wants to do big things with her life and she’s smart enough and stubborn enough to make them happen.

  2. My son’s dream is to go back to our family farm in Indiana. He loves visiting and seeing all the animals and asks about it weekly. My daughter is too young to let me know her dreams but I know they’ll be great.

  3. My 4 year old granddaughter thinks she’s a pet doctor like Doc McStuffins. Her dream is to be Doc when she grows up.

  4. My 7 year old grandson wants to be a math teacher when her grows up…..and a firefighter…..and a wrestler :). My first granddaughter will be here in the spring and I’m anxious to hear about her dreams

  5. My daughter wants to be an orthopedic surgeon, or a teacher. She loves learning how to cook and bake. And with her new telescope she has become quite the stargazer!

  6. Baking and cooking together is something we’ve done since such a young age. My daughter is 8 now and loves Top Chef and trying new ideas in the kitchen. She dreams of being a designer and this doll would be such a great match for her 🙂

  7. My little one hasn’t decided what she wants to be what but I’m sure she’ll be great at whatever she sets her mind to.

  8. My daughter dreams of being in a ballet in NYC! Shes almost 11 now…dreaming just as hard as she was at 3 ❤️❤️

  9. I love that she is very relatable. Even if a kid doesn’t want to grow up being a chef, they are usually interested in helping to cook something.

  10. I love so much about Blaire but definitely the encouragement of family togetherness and intentional living plus she is darling! ❤️

  11. Both of my girls tell me they don’t want to grow up and want to live with me forever. I think this is also my dream LOL. Their dream is also to meet a unicorn. So yeah…They are 5 and 3.

  12. My daughter just got into American Girl and got a hand me down but I don’t think she notices that the hair was cut or that she looks a little worn. She loves her! And I loooove that Blaire is a chef!

  13. My daughter’s dream changes every day; some days she wants to be a princess, or a doctor, other days a ballerina or an artist. She’s creative and has a flair for the dramatic so aside from her natural abilities as a gymnast maybe her dreams will lead her to acting!

  14. My daughter has big dreams! She is an amazing builder/artist and dreams of being an architect! She also loves music….she sings, writes songs, and is learning to play the keyboard she received for Christmas 🙂

  15. Dreams in this house are to be a teacher, be an ice cream taster , and a mathematician !!! We will teach people how to make icream so the middle child can test it and the third can collect the money !! Lol

  16. Blair is so adorable! I love that she faces a lot of very real struggles, especially her food allergy and limiting screen time … currently my daughter’s dream is to be a scientist (what kind changes often)!

  17. Right now my daughter wants to own a pet store and visit Cinerella’s castle in Disneyland but tomorrow it might change again.

  18. My daughters dream is to be a Teacher & to ba a Mom. She loves the 2019 American doll of the year Blair & the story she has. Fingers crossed ??

  20. How exciting! My daughter loves to help bake and cook, and Blaire is a beautiful doll! We would love to add her to our family

  21. Love the Girl of the Year tradition and the way that Blaire’s story hits on challenges girls of today have (especially connecting in person vs. social media/devices). It’s also a nice nod to American Girl history that Blaire lives on Pleasant View Farm, since Pleasant Company was the original name of the brand.

  22. December 11th four sweet girls (sisters) dreams came true my son and daughter-in-law adopted them. They now have 7 children 6 girls and 1 boy we are so blessed happiest day ever for us all.

  24. Right now, my daughters dream is to be a princess! 😀 We shall see! She is only 4 🙂 And I just asked my son and his dream is to eat 10 pizzas lol :p

  25. My daughter Violet loves animals, she dreams of someday have more pets (we only have hermit crabs right now) and when she grows up she would like to be a vet or pet sitter. She is fascinated with science, animals and nature. I grewup on a small farm (we had everything including lambs) so when we visit my parents farm Violet is all about the animals.

  26. Daughter #1 dreams of being a dentist, Daughter #2 dreams of eating candy all day! I can’t make this stuff up! Guess #2 will be #1’s most frequent patient! 😉

  27. Kendall loves to cook!! She watches all types of cooking shows on tv and YouTube! Too bad her mom is a horrible Chef!! Love this doll!!

  32. My Daughter’s dream is to be a Neonatologist; she was a NICU baby and wants to take care of other babies when she grows up. ❤️

  33. My daughter has big dreams for a little girl. It all started with her first science fair project and being inspired by Luciana Vega the astronaut last year.

  37. Beautiful doll my daughter told me she wants to be a wrestler/nurse lol she does love helping people out and has a big heart

  38. My Granddaughter is special needs and she just wants to talk. Maybe a life like doll as pretty as this one and beautiful as her would inspire her to try.

  39. I have 4 granddaughters ranging in age from 4 to 14 and they will all grow up to be strong, passionate women. I know whey will set a strong path in life because my 3 daughters are raising them to know what they want in life and go for it.

  40. Her dream is to have a party everyday. She will create a reason for ice cream, cake or candy – and enjoys sharing them with her friends.

  41. Blaireis so cute! Seven year old wants to be a baker – she loves baking for family and uses the donations she receives to donate to the pet shelter.

  42. My little ones dreams is to work in an underwater lab in the ocean. There is a definite fascination with sea creatures, including coral, sponges, and urchins.

  44. My granddaughter has stated that she would love to be veterinarian and a ballerina on the weekend. This, of course, will happen after she gives up being a super hero!

  45. My granddaughter loves to bake we’re hoping she continues with these skills. But at age 6 she’ll probably change many many times.

    If I won this, I would give this doll to my niece on her 6th birthday which is coming up.

  49. It’s nice to see a AG doll that isn’t blonde or focused on her athletic ability. My daughter is more focused on nature and baking, so she could be a Blaire! It’s a plus that it’s another non-blonde doll, also!

  50. My daughter wants to be a makeup artist. Thank you for sharing. Blaire is so pretty. Would love to win. ❤?❤?❤?❤?

  52. Growing up I was able to give my daughter 2 American Girl dolls she loved and still has. I would love to be able to give my granddaughter one for herself
