Kit's Holiday Outfit.

Kit's Christmas Outfit (also known as Kit's Holiday Outfit) was introduced to Kit's Collection in 2000 and retired in 2017. It is associated with the book Kit's Surprise. Retail cost was originally $22 and increased to $24, $28 and $32.


Cranberry colored dress with flared/gored skirt. Red belt with plastic buckle. Long sleeves with split cuffs and broad white collar. Velcros up the back.


Red hair bow with white dots. Originally attached to a silver barrette clip; in 2013, the metal clip was replaced with a red scrunchy.


White mesh thigh-high stockings. These are stockings in the sense of two pieces, not tights/pantyhose.


Black patent-leather T-strap shoes.

Scottie Dog Pin[]

Scottie dog pin for collar. It was originally a magnet-attached pin, but it was later permanently attached to the collar as a button.

Kit's Christmas Dress for children.

Kit's Christmas Dress for children was available for a cost of $80.



Special Edition mini doll.

  • The shoes in this outfit are almost identical to the shoes that come with the Emily Bennett doll.
  • In Kit's Surprise, it's stated that this outfit originally belonged to Ruthie Smithens. Ruthie had outgrown it, and her mother helped alter it for Kit so Kit would be able to wear it for their annual downtown trip on December 26. Kit originally rejects it because she is embarrassed at a hand-me-down gift, but she later asks if she can "borrow" it from Ruthie for their trip.
  • The Scottie dog pin is a Christmas gift from Mrs. Kittredge to Kit; she states that she received this pin as a gift when she was about Kit's age. Mrs. Kittredge has a twinkle in her eye when she gives the pin to Kit because Kit has been walking Uncle Hendrick's ill-tempered Scottie dog, Inky.
  • A special edition mini doll of Kit wearing the Christmas Outfit and an abridged copy of Kit's Surprise was released in 2011 to celebrate American Girl's 25th anniversary.
