Evette Peeters is one of three American Girl dolls in the new AG doll line World By Us. This post is all about Evette!
Evette loves vintage clothes, upcycling, and protecting nature, including the Anacostia River near her home. When she discovers racism in her own biracial family, she works hard to heal her world—family, friends, river, and all.
The Evette doll has the Josefina face mold, medium skin, caramel hair, freckles and gray eyes.
An expert that especially helped with Evette's story is Katrina Lashley. She is a program coordinator at Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum and a leader in the Women’s Environmental Leadership Initiative.
Evette's accessory set comes with a jacket, sunglasses, and a purse. It costs $35.
Now, let's talk about Evette's story! I've copied and pasted from the description too many times, but the story is about Evette's passion for cleaning up the Anacostia River and how she uses it as a tool to deal with the racism in her biracial family.
Evette's nickname is Evie. She likes anything vintage, equality, upcycling, nature, swimming and her family. Her dislikes are litterbugs, racism and pandemics.
Her mom is a doctor, her dad is a builder, and she has a pesky brother named Bud.
She has 2 sets of grandparents: Grandma and Grandpa Peeters and Gran E, short for Evon.
The Evette: The River and Me book begins with Evette's family putting up a sign for essential workers. The illustration reveals that Evette's mom is Black and her dad is white.
Do you like Evette? I think she's very stunning! I love her medium skin, freckles and eye color.
