We own 18 Historical Character dolls from 12 of the 13 eras they've covered so far: Kaya, Felicity (x2), Elizabeth, Caroline, Josefina, Kirsten, Cécile, Marie-Grace, Addy, Samantha, Nellie, Rebecca, Kit, Ruthie, Molly, Julie, and Ivy. (American Girl has renamed this line BeForever, but all our dolls are from before that change, so I am sticking with the previous name.) So, we own all of the historicals except Molly's friend Emily and Maryellen.

For Emily we substitute a Götz Little Sisters doll originally named Katie. We consider the AG gang complete in our household and have no intention of getting Maryellen or future historicals unless they exceed expectations. (My daughters have stopped being interested in new dolls though they want to keep the ones they have even though they don't really play with them anymore.)

This album is very much not complete. I am missing a group shot and good close-up and full-length pictures of many of the dolls.

I'm not a fan of the BeForever changes either. What a great historical collection!

Thanks, Nonna! We do have fun with them. I sounded kind of negative in the album description, but they really are the favorites around here and adventures usually revolve around them.
