December 23, 2020 / American Girl Diversity Initiatives Update
American Girl has shared a progress report regarding the Commitment to Racial Equality on their Instagram account and Facebook. Along with previous statements, the following has been stated:
The first of the conversation series is due to launch in February 2021 about social justice with the second in April regarding climate change. There will be continued featuring of other young heroes from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences.
August 2021 will bring a book written by Deanna Singh about fighting racism and becoming anti-racist.
Teams continue to work on the newly planned but not yet announced new contemporary line with more stories of diversity. The line is looking at a debut in the latter half of 2021.
New partnerships will later be announced as well.
2021 is also the 35th anniversary of American Girl. Let's hope the celebration is a good one with lots of diversity and good things.
December 23, 2020 / 2020 Girl of the Year Kira Bailey
American Girl has confirmed with their first catalog of 2021 that the 2021 Girl of the Year will be Kira Bailey. She is visiting her married aunts--as in, to each other--in Australia to help at their wildlife sanctuary post the Australian wildfires. New items are also launching for Truly Me including items focused on travel around the world, which will be a separate news post.
In the spirit of "not getting banned for leaks and nonsense", the admins ask that editors be cautious in their editing of new items. If you suspect what you're going to upload isn't open data, is poorly reviewed, or is otherwise hearsay and you can't back it up? Then maybe, just maybe, don't do it. The bans are still generous.
The auctions are being hosted through Bidding for Good with all proceeds to go to First Responders Children's Foundation (minus auction host fee of $600 and an amount equal to 5% of the final bid price). Auctions will run from November 17th through the 25th and began at $5000. Mattel and American Girl are also donating "more than $1,000,000 in retail value of toys to the foundation's Toy Express program" including 18" dolls and other popular Mattel products from Hot Wheels, Barbie and Mega Bloks. The toys will be distributed to thousands of first responder families nationwide through the end of the year.
Courtney Moore is the best gamer in the arcade, and has sweeping imaginative ideas for her own character, Crystal Starshooter, from events in her life. But there's more she's got to face than her high scores and high hopes.
