The American Girl Brand isn’t just about dolls and accessories, it is all about inspiring curious, creative, inclusive, learning children to enjoy being kids! American Girl has helped Teagan find her creativity and I have enjoyed seeing her amazing projects she comes up with.

Inspiring Creativity With American Girl
Most of the time my kids jump from interest to interest but Teagan has shown a longtime interest in all things American Girl. I love this, because I was one of those girls “back in the day” that LOVED reading the original American Girl stories and wishing for my very own American Girl doll. Not only does Teagan like playing with her dolls she really loves learning about each girl’s story and lifestyle. Every year American Girl comes out new characters that I feel like we can all relate too in some way.
When we had the chance to bring the 2020 Girl of the Year into Teagan’s collection, both of us anxiously awaited the delivery!! Unboxing the American Girl packages are always so exciting!! Teagan was so excited that Joss, the 2020 American Girl – Girl of the Year, enjoyed cheerleading and surfing but mostly what she was really excited about was Joss’s hearing aids. An incredible addition to this doll.
Meet Joss – 2020 Girl Of The Year
Joss is a fierce surfer girl who never backs down from a challenge—even if it means taking a chance on something new, like trying out for cheer. But landing a spot on the cheer team is harder than it looks: Joss is hard of hearing, and often misses the count. She realizes that an all-in attitude and an open mind might help her fly higher than ever before.
