I'm Giving Away McKenna, the Girl of the Year from American Girl Dolls!

Do you remember your favorite doll from when you were a little girl? I remember my favorite doll! It was the "Kissy Baby Doll" (from the 1960's) . . . when you pressed her tummy, her arms came together and she "kissed". She had short reddish brown hair and a soft body with vinyl arms, legs and head. My little Kissy baby was a wonderful doll and I enjoyed many hours playing with her! (She is the smaller doll on the left in the photo)

These days the favorite doll of many girls is an American Girl doll. They are lovely dolls and are made with attention to detail. I love how the dolls include a story book which tells you who the doll is, what challenges she faces and how she overcomes her challenges! American Girl dolls are heirloom quality dolls - they are certainly dolls which should be saved once a girl has "out-grown" dolls so one day she will be able to pass her doll on to her own daughters and/or granddaughters!

I'm delighted for the opportunity to give away one American Girl, Girl of the Year Doll! McKenna is a lovely doll with long, caramel colored hair and beautiful blue eyes. She loves gymnastics, but struggles with her homework. She has to learn how to accept help and in the process, learns to help others as well! I will be giving one McKenna doll away on March 13th . . . so how can you get in on this give-away? It is pretty simple! First of all, I need you to "like" grandma's cookie jar (not necessarily this post, but the blog itself) using the tab in the "find us on facebook" box ON THE BLOG. In addition, if you "share" this post - and any of my posts dated from January 13th - March 13th, you'll receive an additional entry each time you share! (please let me know when you share so I'm sure to give you all your entries) This is all there is to it! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and thank you for sharing it with the people you know!

    My favorite doll was an all cloth Pocahontas doll. I still have her today and even found a second one, which I bought. Because it was in a lot better condition than mine. I used to take her with me everywhere and it shows. ;) ♥
