The new Bitty Baby dolls have a slightly different face, with bigger cheeks (we LOVE cheeks!). The dolls remain 15 inches in size and, of course, super cute. The selection will expand from 7 dolls to 11 with new combinations of skin tone, eye and hair color. The additional dolls means even more girls can find dolls that look like them.
After selecting her doll from the expanded choices, a girl will receive her Bitty Baby doll dressed in a signature sleeper, along with a special “wishing star” keepsake toy and Bitty Baby and Me, the first in a series of five hardcover picture books that inspire fun ways to play. If you’ve seen the current Bitty Baby books, they leave a little to be desired. The new books are beautiful and more in line with the quality we expect from American Girl books. The new picture-book collection, brought to life by Newbery Honor Award author Kirby Larson and award-winning illustrator Sue Cornelison, follows a little girl and her beloved Bitty Baby doll as they discover the world around them.
The Bitty Baby re-launch also includes more accessories and clothing. We’re most excited about the improved wooden furniture. And how can you not love this adorable doll carrier?
Shop! The new Bitty Baby dolls and accessories will be available online at AmericanGirl.com and in stores on August 27.
