Meet Lea Clark the American Girl’s 2016 Girl of the Year. Since we're crazy for American Girl dolls at this house, I was lucky enough to be one of the first to see Lea in person. The Girl of the Year is gorgeous and ready for adventure. This year it's all about Brazil (maybe to tie in with the Olympics?).

The toys that surround Lea reflect her Brazilian travels (lots of adorable animals). The main piece in her collection is the Rainforest House and of course there's a book to go along with the doll.
