It's time to welcome the American Girl 2019 girl of the year, Blaire Wilson! Another doll after my own heart, Blaire lives with her parents on their sustainable farm and bed and breakfast in upstate New York. As a family that happens to have their own organic garden in the backyard, we can really relate to her wonderful story. My girls also love to cook just like Blaire does.
Blaire Wilson is described as “a young chef-in-training who loves bringing people together.” She helps on the Pleasant View Farm. American Girl sent us the 2019 Girl of the Year to review and the girls were so excited.
Check out our unboxing video of Blaire!
A natural people person, Blaire excels at gathering people around the dinner table but needs help finding balance between the digital world and the real world—like many people today. Through Blaire, girls will learn the importance of staying connected to the people they care about and that this means more than clicking and swiping—it means truly being there.
“Building and maintaining supportive relationships with family and friends is central to Blaire’s story—a message we think is important to champion among girls today,” says Julia Prohaska, Vice President of Marketing for American Girl. “In an age where families are often striving for quality time together, we hope Blaire inspires everyone to make a New Year’s resolution to connect more regularly with the important people in their lives and make their time together this year really count.”
Blaire Wilson has beautiful curly red hair and green eyes. She has a white sundress with bumblebees all over the front and yellow buttons. She has a yellow wrist wrap and purple sandals. She also has a flower barrette in her hair. The girls were so excited to receive Blaire Wilson, they have already been asking for the gardening sets and her adorable silky chicken.
Blaire’s world features an array of outfits, accessories, and products that reflect her life on Pleasant View Farm, including a sweet lamb and piglet, festive party decor, and Blaire’s Family Farm Restaurant, with everything needed to play out a show-stopping farm-to-table celebration.
The Blaire collection is available on January 1, 2019, at americangirl.com; at all American Girl retail locations nationwide.
