American Girl Dolls from earliest years. Production began 1986. The three original dolls were Samantha, Kirsten, and Molly. These three had white bodies. Felicity was in 1991 and the first to have a flesh colored body. Beautiful dolls! The first dolls were made by Goetz in Germany and will have a "Made in West Germany" tag.
Retired American Girl Doll "Elizabeth" joined the American Girl collection in 2005. Elizabeth was created as Felicity's best friend and she was archived in 2011. Both Elizabeth and Felicity represent the year 1774. To her dismay, Elizabeth discovers that a family marriage could very well mean that she might have to move back to England. As a result, Elizabeth and Felicity put their heads together and invent a plan that might allow her to stay.
