Product Review: Introducing Lanie, American Girl's Girl of the Year 2010

1:39 PM Posted by Centsible Mommy


Meet Lanie.  Isn't she beautiful?   Lanie, American Girl's Girl of 2010 is a thoughtful, energetic girl who discovers nature adventures right in her own backyard.  

The idea behind Lanie is to inspire girls to reconnect with nature, and entice them to rediscover the outdoors in a time where so many children stay indoors in front of TV and computer screens.

Available for the rest of this year only, Lanie's collection includes two books that tell her story, a golden-haired 18-inch Lanie doll, and an array of cute, fun accessories consisting of everything Lanie needs for her outdoor adventures.  In her collection, you'll find an adorable gardening outfit, a hammock for lounging on warm summer days, furry wildlife friends,and a camper and gear to explore the great outdoors and much more!




More about Lanie:

The beautiful 18-inch Lanie doll, features curly blond hair and hazel eyes and comes dressed in a cute striped rugby dress with embroidered dragonfly.  Her cute canvas slip-on shoes match her outfit and are adorned with yellow bows. A double-ribbon headband with a dragonfly applique pulls back her gorgeous curly locks.







Lanie's accessories(sold separately) include:
  • A pretend laptop computer and three screen clings
  • A letter and two postcards from her Aunt Hannah and best friend, Dakota
  • A heart-charm bracelet to show she loves nature
  • An embroidered messenger bag to carry it all
  • Her adorable pet bunny, Lulu, who wears a leash for walks






Her friend Lulu, a loped ear bunny, is just one of the many animal friends in Lanie's collection.   As she walks in the woods she loves to meet other wildlife friends along the way.  Lanie is ready to explore the outdoors and any adventure that comes her way. Lanie loves science and nature and spending time in the great outdoors.






Buy it: Lanie and her collection can be purchased while supplies last from American Girl's online store or at American Girl retail locations.


My thoughts on Lanie:  Not only do I think Lanie and her wildlife friends are absolutely adorable, but I love that her collection inspires girls to get outdoors, reconnect with nature and to love animals.
