Joss Kendrick: American Girl’s 2020 Girl of the Year Rocks Surfing and a Hearing Aid (+ Giveaway!)

American Girl kicked off the new decade with their annual “Girl of the Year” announcement. The 2020 American Girl doll of the year is Joss Kendrick, a 10-year-old surfer from So-Cal who also happens to rock a hearing aid. We can’t get enough of the important messages of representation, determination, and inclusivity in this doll and her accompanying story. 


As the mother of a daughter (and son) who surf – I understand the wonderful lessons in pushing past limits, and getting up repeatedly after getting crushed by waves. Joss’s inspirational character personifies the importance of being open to new things. Joss’s surfing experiences pivot her to see cheerleading through the lens of soaring through the air and finding athleticism in different ways. 

Although American Girl has already offered the option of outfitting dolls with hearing aids, wheelchairs, and crutches – Joss is American Girl’s very fist doll with a disability (congenital hearing loss) that is part of her story. 

Born deaf in her left ear, with some hearing capabilities in her right ear, Joss comes with (two) hearing aids in a small case, that help her hear out of her right ear. Her passion for surfing and cheerleading come to life through her story, in which American Girl worked with surfing, competitive cheerleading, and hearing loss experts to create Joss’s account of ambition, dedication, and pushing past stereotypes. 


Alongside Joss, American Girl committed to a $25,000 donation to the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to representing people who live with hearing loss. 

Win it! We’re so excited to partner with American Girl to giveaway Joss Kendrick, American Girl’s 2020 Girl of the Year to one lucky reader.

Besides that- my girls actually UNDERSTOOD my excitement when I found out the 2020 doll of the year was deaf and wore hearing aids because it has been a long time coming for a company to actually talk about that kind of disability!

  275. Lisa Romine says

    I have three granddaughters. This would be a perfect doll for them to play with when they visit.

  276. Elizabeth Miller says

    I love that they are gearing these dolls to include children that may have a obstacle of some type. My granddaughter has been in speech for years, as well as my daughter was for about 8 years. Both are smart as a whip but people always and do see them as different. Funny, my 14 year old who was in it for 8 years is straight A’s in honors classes and doing dual enrollment classes for college credits with 2 colleges. Pretty sure my 6 year old granddaughter will be about the same.

  277. I love this! I have 2 cousins that were born deaf and have cochlear implants. My husband is also hearing impaired, and while my granddaughters know this, having a doll that is hearing impaired would really help me engage them in conversations about the challenges of being hearing impaired.

  305. This would be perfect for my granddaughter. She doesn’t have a hearing aid, but she does wear glasses and some littles around her like to call her 4 eyes (really, after all these years, that’s still a thing?) and it makes her feel bad. I’m sure she’d fall in love with Joss. And of course, living in Florida, all of her uncles and one aunt surf. That’s an activity too hard to resist when you have a big, beautiful ocean right next to you.
