American Man Doll


How cute is this? The creative people at American Girl made Gar into a doll as a farewell gift! I love his little suit and silk tie, and the briefcase is loaded with tiny books. They even replicated his identification badge and watch. The greying hair is spot on. Do you suppose Mattel will make a Ken version of Gar in China?

It is perfect. So is Gar working for Mattel in China, and no longer for American Girl - or are they part of the same company?

Mattel owns American Girl and Barbie. Gar will be running the House of Barbie in China.

How cool is that.

This is wonderful! I am loving it! I used to sell Corolle Dolls in my store- they were a French line that Mattel bought. I just love that. Sounds like a great job!

What an awesomely cool and creative farewell gift.

If they make him into a Ken doll at any point, I wonder if it would be the early 60's version in the short shorts with the towel around his neck?

The question is: do you Mattel to make a Ken Version of your husband ;-) ?
