Holiday Gifts from American Girl

The holiday shopping season is upon us and as a parent I find myself in search of those toys, gifts, that my kids will not only like, but that they can cherish. When I do the holiday shopping, I like to think back on when I was little, and some of the items that I once had and cherished. As I think back, one item really comes to mind. The item was my very first American Girl doll, Samantha. I can remember looking through the catalogs that we would get and circling the doll I wanted, opening that catalog every time I would see it so I could see the doll again and again, then to wake up one Christmas morning to find my very own Samantha doll under the tree.

This memory was not only a fond one, but a cherished one, because I can remember after I got my Samantha doll, I put her on my shelf for display, keeping very good care of her, and taking her down every so often so I could brush her hair and play with her to then put her back on her place on my shelf. Well, over the past few years, my own daughter has developed a love for that same line of dolls, and has added her own dolls to her collection. So when we were sent the Samantha doll from the American Girl BeForever line, I was excited to share her with my daughter.

When our Samantha doll arrived, I right away began to remember what it was like when I had received my first American Girl doll, and how much I cherished my own Samantha doll so many years ago.

I like that Samantha Parkington is still that same girl that she was when I little, and that when we added the Samantha doll from the American Girl BeForever collection to my daughters collection, she not only added a doll that is like the one her mom once had, but we also added a new book to my daughters American Girl book collection.

In all making the Samantha Parkington doll from the BeForever line of dolls from American Girl, to not only make for a great addition to my daughters American Girl Doll collection, but also a great doll to bring back those wonderful memories I had when I was I child of my own Samantha doll! So as you head out to get the gifts to put under the tree this year, be sure to go online to head to your local American Girl store, and pick up your own Samantha doll from the American Girl BeForever line!

Product received, thank you to American Girl and the PR for supplying me with a product for this review, all opinions are my own.

My granddaughter just started playing with her mom's Samantha doll. I found one of the books for her at Goodwill. It's fun watching history repeat itself.
