American Girl Released Its 2018 Girl of the Year, and She's Honestly Our Favorite Doll Yet
Have a big American Girl Doll fan in your house? Then you may have heard about the brand's newest Girl of the Year, a space- and science-obsessed girl named Luciana Vega. And while we've been totally obsessed with American Girl dolls from years past — how couldn't you love Gabriela McBride's artistic vibe? — Luciana takes the cake in the inspiration department.
American Girl partnered with Scholastic, NASA, and Space Camp to create Luciana, a girl with big hopes of becoming an astronaut and being the first person to set foot on Mars. Yup, we're totally loving the STEM-related theme just as much as you are.
And this year there are even more perks to having an American Girl doll, thanks to the American Girl app (But FYI: you don't even need to buy the actual doll to unlock all the fun app bonuses). Just scan the product code from the doll box or Luciana's page in the American girl catalog to unlock trailers and videos, fun quizzes and challenges, and even an augmented reality feature. How cool is that?
Luciana officially hit stores on Jan. 1, so scroll through to see all her awesome features and accessories available now.
