Sometimes my daughter thinks my job is pretty cool. As she gets older, the times where she still considers me the coolest person around is getting fewer and fewer. Fortunately for me, the day Saige arrived at our house was one of those times. That’s right – Best. Mom. Ever. – type of situation. We had the opportunity to get an up close and personal look at the new American Girl 2013 Girl of the Year before she was even officially announced to the world! Yeah, that makes me super cool in an 8 year old’s eyes!
Saige Copeland is the 2013 Girl of the Year and we think she is pretty awesome. To get an up close and personal look at Saige, make sure to watch our Baby Gizmo video above!
Saige is a spirited and imaginative young girl who loves painting and horseback riding at her grandma’s ranch in Albuquerque, New Mexico — the hot-air balloon capital of the world. Saige’s collection is available for one year; the character comes to life with a beautiful 18-inch Saige doll featuring long auburn hair and an array of outfits and accessories, including a hot-air balloon and a posable horse.
On January 1, 2013, the Saige collection will be available through American Girl’s catalogue, at americangirl.com, and at all American Girl retail locations.
