For 2019, the American Girl doll of the year has been introduced as Blaire Wilson, a fun-loving chef-in-training with food sensitivities and a screen addiction—a character many young kids will be able to relate to. While Blaire is described as a people person, she is also said to "[need] help finding balance between the digital world and the real world." As the Girl of the Year, Blaire's own story has the potential to inspire many young girls who also find it a challenge to maintain connections in the digital and real world.

American Girl fans are able to read more about Blaire's story through a series of books written by Jennifer Castle and published by Scholastic. The doll itself stands 18 inches tall and boasts bright green eyes, cascading red hair and outfits that suit her life on her family's sustainable farm.
