Caroline Abbott . . . the New American Girl Doll - I'm Giving One Away!

I'm delighted for the opportunity to share the new  American Girl Doll, Caroline Abbott, with you . . . and to give one away during my November of special Christmas give-aways!

Caroline is absolutely lovely . . . she is 18" tall, with light aquamarine eyes which open and close, waist-length golden-blond hair which can be braided and styled, and she arrives in an empire-waist dress authentic to her era. Caroline is soft and huggable and sure to be a friend any girl who receives her will cherish . . . and since she is an heirloom-quality doll, she is sure to be loved by future generations as well!

American Girl says, "As the War of 1812 begins, so does the story of Caroline Abbott's bravery. She loves sailing with her father, but when he's captured, Caroline must help keep the family's shipyard running. When she sees a chance to rescue her father, Caroline discovers she must use her mind and heart to guide her decisions."

I want to let you know about a contest American Girl is holding . . . "Have you ever had to be brave? Enter this contest by creating a video clip (up to 60 seconds) about a time you felt like an everyday hero. You can tell a story, re-create a moment, or even act out the scene with your doll. Ask your parent to upload your video here by October 31 for your chance to win. Then come back November 5 to vote for one of the six finalists and help choose the winner of their grand prize, which includes a trip for four to Washington, D.C.; and extra-special day at the American Girl store; a Caroline doll, books and accessories set; plus a VIP tour fo the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to learn more about life in Caroline's day."

As I said, American Girl sent Caroline for me to review and give away (USA only)! If you would like to be included in this give-away - which will be on November 30, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win this doll and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!  (You'll be able to receive additional entries each time I post about her!)
