i dont know why i haven’t seen more American Girls positivity on my dash so im gonna make my own post about the things they’ve done right

  • made a diverse list of dolls, with all sorts of skin colors and hair colors
  • taught historical events in entertaining ways
  • had bomb-ass websites with super fun games to play
  • never had forced relationships for the young girls
  • The American Girls always covered important issues, like poverty and racism and slavery and bullying
  • they had the most amazing How To (or “smart girl’s guide”) books that offered great non-condescending advice, like on your body changing and how to handle money (which tbh i still use to this day)
  • the clothes and accessories were always so much fun and well made
  • when they got an american girl store in my town i cried tears of happiness
  • i was always able to talk to my friends about which doll you were closest too (i was most like josefina) 
  • always had relevant, inspirational messages in their stories
  • i loved their mystery books they were so much fun i felt like a super sleuth

basically i will defend american girl dolls til my last dying breath and no one can stop me
