MollyPolkaDotOutfitAs you already probably know, we are HUGE American Girl fans at our house. My daughter absolutely loves all things American Girl and her mommy does too!

It looks like today American Girl made a very important announcement and I wanted to pass it along… American Girl will soon be retiring Molly McIntire®!

American Girl sent out the following e-mail to e-mail subscribers today…

Dear American Girl fan,

We’re writing with important news about one of our most treasured American Girl dolls—Molly McIntire®. As one of our e-mail subscribers, you’re among the first to know that soon, Molly’s complete collection, including her best friend from England, Emily Bennett™, will be moving into the American Girl Archives™.

Countless American Girl fans have found a friend in this lively, patriotic girl since her introduction in 1986. Bringing Molly’s world to life—from helping her family during World War Two to welcoming Emily into her home—has been a journey we’ve enjoyed sharing with you.

Watch for more information via our catalogues and at In the meantime, don’t miss the opportunity to purchase items from Molly’s collection before it’s too late. Thank you for your continued support.

I saw a post on American Girl’s Facebook page last night about Molly and was going to look on their site and see if I saw anything, but instead got the e-mail with the announcement today.

I think both of the dolls retiring, Molly and Emily, along with their collection as beautiful.

Order Now While You Can!

I am sure with the retirement announcement their will be a dash to finish-up collections and their will be eBay dealers rushing to order… so I would suggest if you were looking to purchase Molly or any of the items from her collection you act sooner rather than later.
