Do you have a huge American Girl doll fan at your house? My 9 year old daughter is quite obsessed. I hear all about the dolls and their journeys often. I love her enthusiasm and the pure joy she has when we walk into our local store. It lights up her face each time we go and her smile totally makes it worth the visit. So, if you’re like me, and have one of these AG fans in your home… you may have heard about Maryellen Larkin!

American Girl Debuts Maryellen Larkin

Maryellen Larkin is the newest BeForever™ character from American Girl. She is an “energetic and optimistic girl who follows her heart instead of the crowd. Depicting an era that gave rise to tremendous growth and change in America, Maryellen’s products and stories have an intergenerational appeal that is sure to be a hit with girls, moms, and grandmas!”

Maryellen has grown up in Daytona Beach, Florida, in the 1950s and is fashionably dressed for that time period. She wears an authentic ’50s outfit that includes a striped dress, a lacy-knit shrug with a monogrammed M, black shoes and a ribbon bow for her strawberry-blonde hair. The iconic high ponytail and sideswept bangs of the era definitely add character to finish the look. Not to mention, Maryellen Larkin also comes with the paperback book, The One and Only, the first novel-length volume of her classic series by Valerie Tripp.



In addition to the newest BeForever™ character, American Girl is also embarking on a new mission to unite more girls than ever before. The movement encourages the unstoppable force of girls working together and supporting each other. It starts with a new kind of rallying cry: a pledge, inviting girls (and those who champion them — from moms, grandmas, dads, grandpas, brothers and friends) to make to each other as a promise of support and unity.

American Girl’s goal is still to continue to inspire and celebrate girls and help them recognize the strengths in one another, not just themselves. Plus, they want to show girls that individually they are powerful-but, collectively, they are unstoppable! Watch the pledge video to hear more:
