Doll of the Month July 2022: Kaya!

The majority of you guys voted for Kaya'aton'my, so she is July 2022's Doll of the Month!

(Edit made by AGDN reader Grace)


In 1764, Kaya lives in the Pacific Northwest (covering modern day Idaho, Washington and Oregon) with the Nimiipuu Native American tribe. Her family consists of her mother Eesta, father Toe-ta and siblings Brown Dear, Wing Feather, Sparrow and Speaking Rain.


Kaya is a active girl who loves the Earth, nature and animals. She loves riding horses, especially her horse Steps High, and strives to one day become a leader of her people. However, Kaya sometimes acts before she thinks, which leads to her being called "Magpie" due to racing horses instead of taking care of her siblings. This escalates when her sister Speaking Rain is kidnapped by an enemy tribe, but Kaya grows as a person throughout the books and eventually finds her sister.


Kaya was released in 2002 and has remained in the historical lineup ever since.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE AG dolls but as a kid, Kaya was the only one that I didn’t really like. Her closed mouth just didn’t seem normal. NOW Kaya is basically my LIFE now.

Kaya was the first doll I purchased as an adult when I got back into AG because I have always wanted her. I got a Pleasant Comapny Kaya because the BeForever ones just didn't look "right" to me. She's probably my favorite doll of all the AG dolls. Kaya's books are also my favorite (along with Molly's). And I just love her little face!

Kaya was my fourth doll, and I received her for Christmas a few years ago. I love her stories and the adventures she embarks on in them. She is such a beautiful doll!

Kaya was my 12th doll and I got her from my mom on Christmas 2012 when I was 14 years old. My Kaya doll was apparently among the first because she has 2002 written on her neck. She was the first doll I fixed up the limbs. Kaya's leg was loose and after watching Stephenwodadancer's video on how to tighten American Girl doll limbs, I was able to do it successfully and I have been doing it to several of my dolls since.

It’s why I’m confused as to why it says 2002 on her neck. here’s a picture to prove it:
