Brand new Historical American Girl Doll, Courtney from 1986 - https://www.americangirl.com/

 

American Girl MC’s are always 9 years old, so Courtney was born in 1977 and is an “X-ennial” who would put herself in Gen X.

Dunno about you, but I had a very, very similar dolly and me Care Bears sleepshirt in 1986. Yes, I do feel very old right now. Also, fun fact, 1986 is when I got my Samantha Parkington doll, if I recall correctly.

Also, why isn’t her name Jennifer?

My mom let me Lisa Frank everything, so I did have stuff like that.

Also, the Caboodles set! I didn’t think they made Caboodles anymore, but I saw one for sale at JoAnns the other day.

I’m also glad they gave her a little Molly doll, although I can tell you that in 1986 the catalogs were half-pages.

Joanns was selling them as craft supply containers, and honestly, they may make a valid argument for owning one.

Though I may just keep my eyes peeled for one at the thrift store.

I was born in 1986 and I have grey hairs.
