Top 5 Longest and Shortest-Running American Girl Dolls

I figured it would be fun if I did a post of what American Girl dolls have been available for the longest time and the shortest time - so here it is! LONGEST RUNNING AMERICAN GIRL DOLLS: Addy Walker -

@hanna0428 Joss won't retire at the end of 2020. She will retire in 2022. Proof? Well, Luciana was goty in 2018 and she is still availiable.


@hanna0428 Well I would recommend getting Joss because she is going to retire sooner. The truly me dolls don’t retire much, especially the new ones. But Joss, however, is a girl of the year. She doesn’t stay for long, considering she didn’t do very well with selling. Nanea, is a historical. They stay FOREVER. Example: Samantha has been in stock for 35 years, including BeForever. So honestly: in my opinion: you should get Joss. (Also her hair is very straight.)

I went a doll for Christmas but do not what one to get Joss who has story or truly me 87. I chould to get joss for my birthday in may because she a surfer And Olympics have surfing next year So that might be kind of cool to get that for my birthday since it’s closer to the Olympics but 87 pretty I love the back of her hair style has little twist in the back it would be easy to take care of.but She doesn’t have a story. I like Courtney to and Nanna But I’m afraid of the hair might be hard for me to take care of because they’re not straight as other two
