Sure, American Girl dolls are pretty to play with, but they also awesomely inspirational for young girls, too. And the American Girl Doll of the Year 2017, Gabriela, is no exception.
Gabriela McBride, is a true talent who gets creative for a cause. The 18″ Gabriela doll has warm brown eyes that open and close, and curly dark-brown hair. She has a huggable cloth body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. She comes with the Gabriela paperback book, plus her signature outfit:
- A cropped purple sweater with silver dream graphic and soft turquoise tank top
- A fitted pair of dark-blue jeggings to keep her comfy
- A pair of purple shoes with turquoise straps, a pink double headband, and 10 hairbands
In Gabriela’s own words, “I’m a dancer, an artist, and a poet out to inspire real change. I love dancing, painting, music, all of the arts. But words are my world. With the right words, I can down barriers and break through to people.”
