Make Beautiful Friendships Bloom


Remember those precious childhood days when you’d spend dawn till dusk playing, imagining, and discovering? Perhaps your daughter is in that stage of wonderment—with the whole world at her fingertips to learn from and explore. She’s learning so much, including her “emotional intelligence,” too. You’re there every step of the way, setting her up not just to be smart and curious, but also to be caring, compassionate, and kind.

American Girl takes pride in partnering with parents to support and encourage our youngest girls just beginning to grow. Introducing the WellieWishers™, a sweet and silly group of girls who each have the same big, bright wish: to be a good friend. They try their best to be well-wishers, people who show kindness to others. These fun-loving friends imagine and play in a charming backyard garden cared for by wise and wonderful Aunt Miranda. When the WellieWishers step into their colorful garden boots, they’re ready for anything—stomping in mud puddles, putting on a show, and helping friendships grow. Like your girl, they’re finding out that good deeds such as cooperating, sharing, taking turns, respecting feelings, and making it right aren’t always the easiest things to do, but they’re just the right things to do to make beautiful friendships bloom.

This summer, five WellieWishers™ dolls as well as an app and special games on Play@AG will be available for your girl. Coming this fall, beautifully illustrated early chapter books and a lively animated show will bring the WellieWishers™ and their garden to life in entertaining and engaging ways.
