Meet Caroline: American Girl's Newest Historical Character

Author:

Meet Caroline Abbott! She is the latest historical character from the American Girl collection, a daring, self reliant nine-year-old girl who learns to steer a steady course amid the challenges of war while growing up in Sackets Harbor, New York, on Lake Ontario during the War of 1812.

Debuting on September 4, Caroline's debut will include a doll, books and accessories that will inspire today's girls with stories of courage and kindness as she becomes a true hero by giving of herself without expecting anything in return - becoming the kind of real everyday hero that any girl can be.

The Caroline doll is 18' tall with light aquamarine eyes and long blond hair. She arrives wearing an empire-waist dress trimmed with ruffles and a woven floral sash, lacy pantalettes, ribbed-knit stockings, pink shoes, with a Meet Caroline paperback book written by Kathleen Ernst. Her accessories include a faux-straw bonnet adorned with fabric flowers, a drawstring purse, and a little top that really spins.
