Welcome 2022 with the Newest American Girl Doll (& Her Little Sis!)

Read next

New year, new American Girl doll time! If your little is looking for an inspiring new girl (or two!) to turn playtime into something even more meaningful, the 2022 Girl of the Year fits the bill.

Say hello to Corinne Tan, a Chinese American doll and her companion, little sister Gwynn. Together, the pair hail from Aspen, Colorado and celebrate their Chinese heritage as they navigate their new family life. Alongside Wendy Wan-Long Shang’s coordinating American Girl Doll books, Corinne and Corinne to the Rescue, young fans will get to know the sisters and how they can become their own trailblazers.

In addition to the new launch of Corinne ($110) and her sister Gwynn ($65), American Girl gurus will be able to shop tons of accessories like ski accessories, a bedroom set, plenty of outfits and even a ski and snack shop!

Even more important, American Girl has partnered with AAPI Youth Rising, a student-led organization whose mission is to “turn small actions into positive change.” So far, the company has donated $25,000 to support AAPI Youth Rising’s ONE/180 pledge, where schools and teachers across the country are asked teach at least one day of Asian American and Pacific Islander history and culture during the school year.

If you’d like to help support the pledge, you can donate online, by calling toll free at 1-800-845-0005 or donate at an American Girl store.
