American Girl's 2016 Girl of the Year: Lea Clark

Enter to win Lea Clark, American Girl's 2016 Girl of the Year

If you have a young child in your life you've surely heard of American Girl dolls at some point. And if you've been reading my blog for a little bit over a few weeks - then you know I participated in a giveaway for the 2015 doll of the year in November/December for the holiday season. 

My friend Kate over at My Mommy Brain has coordinated these two giveaways with a good handful of bloggers and they're being hosted by us on our own. They're not sponsored by American Girl in any way - it's just us - putting our hard earned money in together to promote and host this event for our readers. 

So, let me introduce you to Lea Clark. The 2016 doll of the year!

Lea Clark, the 2016 Girl of the Year, dives in to new adventures and explores what's in her heart.The 18" Lea doll is available until 12/31/16, or while supplies last. This American Girl Doll giveaway is for a Lea Clark American Girl Doll, Lea's Exclusive Collection, and her book Lea Dives In-written by Lisa Yee, valued at $180.


Meet Lea, the 2016 Girl of the Year! She dives in to new adventures and explores what's in her heart. The 18" Lea doll has warm hazel eyes that open and close, and long, light-brown wavy hair with sun-kissed highlights. She has a huggable cloth body, and her movable head and limbs are made of smooth vinyl. Lea and her bundled starter set ($180 value!) comes with:
  • Brazilian festival outfit: A bright, multicolored dress, featuring an attached braided belt and braided trim on the straps

  1. it would be for my 7 year old daughter.

  2. What a fun giveaway! I entered because if I won, I could be the coolest aunt ever by giving this to one of my nieces!

  3. These dolls are so pretty. I'd love to win one for my niece!

  4. My daughters want these dolls SO bad! This one actually looks like my oldest daughter. She would love it.

  5. Fun giveaway. I think Lea could be a blogger on the side with her mad photo skills.

  6. Such a fun doll! Is it took early to buy American Girl for my unborn daughter?? ;)

  7. These dolls have always fascinated me. Too bad my kids are all grown up now, otherwise I'd try to get one for them!

  8. My daughter would love Lea, she's into the GOTY, she got Grace last year so I think she's starting a yearly tradition...

  9. My daughter's friend who wants this doll is who I'd give it too

  10. I'm all about giveaways but I'm pretty sure I don't have a chance with this one...but gonna give it the old college try anyway! LOL My daughter loves the doll she got for Christmas 1 year ago and this would be a perfect addition!

  11. What a fun and awesome giveaway. I'll be sure to share this!

  12. oh what a fun giveaway i'll enter

  13. Andrea! I am so excited you're doing this! I would love to give this doll to Charlotte, we are planning to get her one this year when she turns 5, and the 2016 one who loves the beach would be PERFECT for her. Love love love. So excited for this!

  14. I would give this to my daughter. She loves her dolls and has a birthday coming up very soon...

  15. for my four daughters to share

  16. if I won, which I really-really hope I do, I would give this to my 'oldest' daughter for her upcoming 10th birthday. she has been asking for one for years. When I could actually afford one- I felt she was 'too young' for such an expensive doll and that it would just get ruined very quickly. then I went thru a rough patch which I seem to semi-still be going thru- and just can't afford to buy her a 'real' American girl doll and she doesn't want the target ones. And now that this 2016 girl of the year came out- she is obsessed- because they look just like each other- before we used to think she should get kit- but now that we have seen this one, it is meant for her!
    thank you for the chance to make a long time birthday wish come true! a friend told me about this giveaway and I have been meaning to stop on by- glad I came tonight but I wish I got here before the last day! thank you all again!
