When I saw the ads that a new American Girl was coming out, and that she had red hair and loved to cook, I knew she was just perfect for one of my red heads. N loves to cook and loves to bake and she’s all about creating meaningful connections. Blaire Wilson is a welcomed addition in our house and I’m so thankful to American Girl for sending her along for us to check out.
Check out N’s surprise unboxing video at the top and bottom of the post.
Who is Blaire Wilson?
Blaire Wilson is a young chef-in-training who loves bringing people together. Naturally a people person, just like our N, she excels at gathering people around the dinner table. However, as many kids these days, she struggles to find the balance between the digital world and the real world. Blaire will help teach girls that it’s more important than ever to stay connected to people they care about in person.
She lives with her family on Pleasant View Farm, including a lamb and piglet and helps out at Blaire’s Family Farm Restaurant.
Blaire’s story unfolds in a chapter book series written by Jennifer Castle and published by Scholastic. In the two books, Blaire loves to put her cooking and decorating talents to good use on her family’s sustainable farm and bed-and-breakfast in upstate New York.
When the opportunity to plan the farm’s first wedding arises, Blaire jumps in with gusto. However, between overextending herself to create the perfect farm-fancy event and a newly diagnosed food sensitivity that makes her self-conscious, Blaire finds herself more engaged on her devices than at real-life gatherings with others.
Ultimately, through the help of her family and friends, Blaire finds a healthy balance and learns the value of being fully present at every occasion.
Blaire Wilson’s features
Like Blaire’s other American Girl friends, she’s an 18-inch tall doll. Blaire has bright green eyes and curly red hair.
In addition to her adorable bee covered sundress, Blaire Wilson’s hair flower and bracelet there are other outfits and accessories and products available. You can purchase everything needed to play with a show stopping farm-to-table celebration.
