The American Girl book series started just as I was towards the upper end of the targeted age range: Only the original 3 girls at the time: Kirsten blonde braids), Samantha brunette w/ bow), and Molly brunette w/ braids).
So im trying to sell my molly doll and outfits, found this on Buzzfeed...Here’s a rather pricey listing — a Molly doll (she’s in a doll hospital outfit here), but she comes with her a decent chunk of Molly’s line: $4,958. | How Much Is An Original American Girl Doll Worth?
The ORIGINAL American Girl Dolls: Felicity, Kirsten, Samantha, Addy and Molly. :) I had Samantha, Addy and then a custom one who was Asian :) even back then I had a love of nations and didn't even know it!
