January is always an exciting time in the doll world. It’s when American Girl releases their Girl of the Year doll.
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links for your shopping convenience.
Every year, a new girl is introduced. The girl of the year always deals with current world issues and is relatable to all girls and boys. The 2021 Girl of the Year doll is Kira Bailey. She’s a young girl who loves animals.
In Canada, American Girl dolls are available exclusively at Indigo.
Kira Bailey is an animal lover. She is invited by her aunt to go spend some time at her Wildlife Sanctuary in Australia. Kira loves taking care of the koalas, wombats, and kangaroos.
Like all American Girl dolls, Kira is 18″ tall and can stand on her own.
Kira has green eyes and long wavy blond hair. Kira wears a tie-dye tank top, a pleated skirt, and brown lace-up boots. Kira also comes with the Kira Down Under paperback book.
The Girl of the Year is beautiful. She has interests like young girls her age. She is a great role model.
American Girl always releases wonderful accessories to go with their Girl of the Year.
Some of Kira’s best accessories include Kira’s Wildlife Rescue Set, Kira’s accessories, and Kira’s Comfy Camping accessories. These fun items from Kira’s world are available online now.
Kira is a lovely doll and a very exciting addition to the world of American Girl.
She is available this year only.
If you’ve been waiting to purchase a special doll for a child in your life, Kira may be the perfect fit.
