American Girl Teams Up with Swarovski to Benefit Children of First Responders

Holiday

American Girl has collaborated with Swarovski® crystals to create three stunning, one-of-a-kind collector dolls for auction just in time for the holidays. One hundred percent of the net proceeds* will benefit First Responders Children’s Foundation.

Each dress is unique and embellished completely by hand. The gowns and complementary accessories took Swarovski couturiers over 330 hours to design and hand embellish. The starting bid for each American Girl Collector doll is $5,000.

2020 American Girl® Fuchsia Feathers Collector Doll

This glamorous ballgown features lavish layers of fuchsia, pink, and pewter feathers, creating an ombre effect that beautifully sets off the doll’s long, black hair.
