This weekend is an exciting one for fans of American Girl. This weekend we were introduced to two new contemporary characters: Tenney Grant and Logan Everette. I was able to attend a really fun “Meet Tenney Grant” event at my local American Girl store in Overland Park, KS. At the event we were treated to a concert by Darcie Hingula, who is a KC native and very talented. This darling 14 year-old can play the guitar, ukelele and piano. She was very impressive. There were also crafts, cookies and giveaways. The event continues tomorrow so there is still time to make it if you live near Overland Park, KS.
Then came the best part of my daughter’s experience (this is now the best day of her life). She was surprised with a Tenney Grant doll. American Girl graciously gave her this gorgeous doll. She held back the tears but her smile was the biggest I’ve seen. She has wanted a real American Girl doll since she was 7 so all of her dreams came true today. We affectionately call them #FreckleFriends since they both have a cute freckle face. I’m so appreciative of the kindness of American Girl.
In addition to Tenney, American Girl’s first ever boy character is drummer, Logan Everett complete with his own rhythmic drum set.
