American Girl Dolls Archive

I wanted to list all the American Girl Dolls just for everybody's information.  I get a lot of questions about which dolls are which and whether they are historic or retired, etc.  As of this posting there are only 4 retired historic dolls.  Molly McIntyre and Emily Bennet will retire at the end of the year.  I will try and keep this updated as any changes occur.  I hope this helps everyone!

NOTE: Samantha Parkington has been re-released in the 'Beforever Doll'  line.
This version of Samantha is retired, as well as Nellie.

Girl of the year Dolls
The Girl of the Year dolls are just that, only out for a year.  It looks like right at the start these dolls may have been out for more than 1 year.  The first 3 appear to have been out for 2 years each.  The current Girl of the Year dolls are retired after one year.  So all these dolls are retired except for the current years doll.

Great post. Thank you. I enjoyed it. I'm 29 and just getting into the American Girl world. I just got my two year old a bitty baby and it's quality has caused me to fall in love with the brand.

I am glad it was helpful. : ) It took me a long time to figure out all these dolls and their different categories. I know many collectors who know all the "Just Like You" dolls, their years and number - wow!

Lol me too, my mother in law bought my 1 year old daughter her first bitty baby and now I'm having fun looking for second hand dolls to fix up and save for her :)

Catherine, it can become such an addiction! But a good addiction!
