Sometimes, American Girl dolls are classified as rare when in reality, they aren't rare. So then, who's rare and who's not rare? This post will help you figure that out!

  1. Signed American Girl Dolls

The first 5000 Samantha, Kirsten and Molly dolls were signed by Pleasant Rowland, as well as the first 1000 Felicity dolls and the first 500 Addy dolls. All of these dolls are extremely rare.

Just went through storage of our girls who are now grown up parents. We have Kanani with original outfit and in box, also with her paddleboard and accessories from beach.. Have # 8 just like you doll. Addy and Marisol with original outfits. Along with Kit, Josefina, Lanie, Ruthie, Emily, and Julie all with original outfits and boxes. Don't know if they are rare, but they are almost like new. Sure brought back some good memories.
