Courtney Moore: American Girl’s New ‘Historical’ Doll is Straight Out of 1986 (+ Giveaway!)

Courtney_American_Girl

American Girl recently dropped their latest “historical character” from 1986, and she’s giving my generation all the big feels. While I can’t fully wrap my head around the fact that the ’80s are officially ancient, I’m fully here for Courtney Moore and her totally rad ’80s-kid nostalgia.

Courtney Moore, American Girl’s first new historical doll in three years, is an authentic ’80s girl from a blended family in the fictional town of Orange Valley, California. Her two-book series, written by Kellen Hertz, contextualizes the ’80s time-period with references of playing Pac-Man mall arcades to watching The Space Shuttle Challenger devastation on TV in her school classroom (like so many of us did).

Courtney rocks a high-waisted acid-washed mini skirt, a scrunchie-adorned side-ponytail, white slouchy boots, or white high-top sneakers and accessories galore (include the exact clear dial-up phone that my friend Kelly had in her bedroom). Other totally awesome accessories include a Care Bear sleeping bag and pajamas, Caboodles to store her Lip-Smacker collection, a PAC-MAN yellow plastic lunchbox and mini arcade, colorful bangle bracelets, a cassette player with tapes, and her very own HISTORIC American Girl doll (Molly!) to boot.

Best of all, American Girl has partnered with Girls Who Code to support their outreach and work with girls. When you shop for a Courtney doll and accessories, you can choose to donate $1, $5, or $10 to Girls Who Code, and American Girl will match donations (with a maximum contribution of $50,000). American Girl is also providing four Girls Who Code members with individual 5k scholarships.

WIN IT: I’m so here for Courtney Moore and her injection of ’80s galore and am stoked that American Girl is providing a Courtney doll, book, and accessories ($140 value) to one lucky blog reader!
