Which character speaks to her story?

For more than 30 years, girls have met and fallen in love with American Girl characters—both historical and contemporary. If your girl has been hooked by their inspiring stories and imaginative products, then she’s really going to love 2017. And since American Girl characters and stories help build self-confidence, inspire creativity, and give girls a broader understanding of the world—we now have even more for parents like you to love, too.

Take a peek at who’s coming in 2017 and what your girl can learn from each of these characters:

Gabriela’s stories offer encouragement for artfully tackling challenges that many girls face in the real world—including finding the right words to say at the right moment and using your talents to help others.

Through Tenney’s struggles and successes, girls can discover the inspiration to share their authentic selves and the courage to wholeheartedly pursue their dreams.

Tenney and Logan challenge each other to grow as musicians, and their partnership teaches girls the importance of being open to collaboration and compromise. 

Welcome back one of American Girl’s most beloved historical characters, Felicity.

Felicity’s stories offer guidance that girls can apply to their own lives—such as what it means to be a loyal friend and how to deal with the responsibilities of growing more independent.

Z is focused on using her creativity to connect with others, and her stories remind girls that everyone has a unique perspective to share—even if it’s not perfect.

Nanea’s stories teach girls that kokua—doing good deeds and giving selflessly—sometimes requires sacrifice, but that it’s everyone’s responsibility to lend a hand for the greater good.

And there’s still more to come! Their stories will come to life in a variety of formats, including books, live-action specials, and other digital platforms. Plus, the characters and their worlds will all be available for a full 12 months and beyond.
