If you haven’t known this about mi familia (my family) let me share with you all that we are an American Girl doll household and love it! For several years mi hija (my daughter) has had a true love for American Girl dolls and she continues to do so. I love watching the sparkle in her eyes when a new doll arrives at our door – there is no mistaking that rectangular shaped box. American Girl Dolls have always brought such joy to my daughter as she travels to a place of pure imagination. I love watching her play with her dolls and I always feel a little giddy inside as my inner little girl comes out. That’s what American Girl dolls are all about – imagination, dreams and dolls that are long lasting that make lifetime memories. So you can imagine my daughter’s excitement when she received the latest BeForever historical doll – Melody Ellison. Melody Ellison, is the newest American Girl doll to join the Beforever lineup and she was released on August 25th.
Nine-year-old Melody is growing up in Detroit in the mid-1960s, a time of great energy, optimism, and change for the African American community. She is a singer and loves to perform in church, with her family, and in her community. Her stories are set against the backdrop of the civil rights movement, which was gathering momentum, and the music scene, including the success and popularity of Motown Records and its artists. As Melody gains more awareness of racial inequality and her sense of community grows from her extended family to include her neighborhood and, ultimately, all African Americans, she is inspired by Dr. King to have a dream of her own: to lift her voice for fairness and equality. Because many girls are interested in music and performing, as well as starting to find their own “voice” and express their opinions, they’ll find Melody’s stories engaging and entertaining. You’ll love that they’re educational, too, helping your girl connect with the past on a more personal level. Come meet Melody Ellison and introduce her to your girl today!
Melody Ellison is on sale now in all American Girl retail stores and on AmericanGirl.com. Melody has great accessories and outfits that are sold separately.
