When I first heard of American Girl Kirsten (who was already retired at the time), I immediately loved her because she reminds me of a real-life spunky pioneer girl from my husband's family. I missed out on the full size doll (which is probably best on my pocket book anyway) but I do love my mini Kirsten. I found a wooden wagon for her, but it's missing the top, so I need to try to make a new cover for it. I also found a miniature oil lamp that really works. Kirsten is in the center spot of my mini doll display shelf, along with her mini book and a tiny paper doll book I got from McDonalds. That was actually the first I heard about American girl. Somehow I missed all the hoopla, though I was target age when Pleasant Company was started.
Hope you enjoy these pictures and take time to celebrate your own ancestors and the ways in which they were pioneers, forging the path for your future! Happy Pioneer Day!!
