Doll of the Week: Samantha!

This week's Doll of the Week is Samantha!

Samantha is from the late American Industrial Revolution in 1904. She was released in 1986 and retired in 2009, only to be brought back in 2014. A limited-edition 35th-anniversary edition was available in 2021. She has the Classic mold, brown hair, and brown eyes.


A fun fact about Samantha is that she is an orphan because Pleasant Rowland's 8-year-old niece told her aunt that she liked to read about orphans! In the Chicago Tribune in 1990, an article about American Girl said, "Rowland chuckles as she remembers what an 8-year old niece in the Chicago-area revealed about her favorite subjects. ''I asked her who she liked to read about and she said, `Oh, Aunt Pleasant, orphans." So Samantha's parents are dead because of a kid around her age. Thank you, Pleasant Rowland's 8-year-old niece.

Not the late Industrial Revolution. She's from the Progressive Era to be precise.

Thank you! I saved it to the blog when I was younger, so thank my fifth grade self for thinking the stock photo for the older version was better than the BeForever version

One of the originals. Samantha is my twin sister's first and favorite historical girl.
