Meet the Dolls

I have five 18" American Girl dolls. I also have three WellieWishers, a Corolle babydoll, another babydoll (brand unknown), and three AG mini dolls, plus a Springfield Collection doll my siblings and I share. Together they make up the Findley family, and you can meet them all here!

Peace Luna Findley (MyAG #23 w/ braces)
Birthday: January **
Age: 13
Acquired: Received for Christmas 2012

Peace is my mini-me, except that she has long hair and a side part. :-)

Peace is the storyteller of the family. Being rather shy, she expresses herself through writing, singing and acting. She keeps to herself and doesn't talk much to people she doesn't know well, which means that she sometimes comes off as grouchy. Once she gets comfortable around you, though, you'll find that she's curious and adventurous, fiercely independent, and very opinionated, and she loves a good debate.
Also, though she's never been formally diagnosed, she probably has some kind of ASD. For her that means that social stuff is hard, she's hypersensitive, and she always needs to know what's going on. It can be hard sometimes, but to Peace it's just normal life.
Anyway, Peace is clever and creative. She does well in the academic part of school without really trying, thanks to her excellent memory, but the social part can be painful. People (siblings, mainly) sometimes get mad at her for being too bossy or competitive, but if you see that side of her, count yourself lucky--with unfamiliar people, she does her best to restrain her need to be in control.
In general, you do want Peace around. She has brilliant ideas, and you can always count on her to get stuff done--or to tell you that you need a comma there.
Dislikes: Grammar/spelling/punctuation errors, uncomfortable clothes, people who assume she's mad at them just because she doesn't talk much, people who don't stand up for themselves, brushing her hair, uncertain schedules, being forced to wear shoes, getting water stuck in her ear, people who chew loudly, apologies
Hobbies: reading, photography, writing, swimming, skiing, AG dolls, stuffed animals, climbing on stuff, musical theater, singing, surfing the Internet, summer camp, games


Alyssa Forrest Findley (MyAG #41)
Birthday: March 1
Age: 13
Acquired: Received for Christmas 2013

Alyssa, out of all the dolls, is the one the rest turn to when they're upset or need help. She can always tell how someone is feeling, and she always knows just what to say to make them feel better.  She's thoughtful, funny, and open-minded, and loves to make new friends.
When she's not chatting with the other dolls (or even when she is), she likes mix-and-matching new outfits from the family's large wardrobe, talking walks and hikes outside, and singing--in her mind, any get-together can be improved with karaoke!
Dislikes: grouchy people, when her curly hair doesn't behave, being ignored
Hobbies: helping out, stuffed animals, AG dolls, singing, hiking, mix-and-matching clothes


Isabelle Aster "Izzy, ZyZy" Findley (Isabelle w/ freckles)
Birthday: June 16
Age: 12
Acquired: Purchased myself @ AGP Seattle April 2014

Izzy is silly, creative, and sweet, and she really cares about her friends. She's very friendly and fun, and everyone finds her easy to get along with, except if they interrupt her while she's dancing! She likes fashion, dance, and hanging out with her friends, but she's not above a good romp in the garden, too, which everyone likes about her.
Dislikes: scratched CDs, being interrupted while she's dancing, people who tease other people
Hobbies: ballet, modern dance, fashion design, AG dolls


Molly Evelyn MacIntire-Findley (Molly)
Birthday: April 22
Age: 11
Acquired: Received for Christmas 2014

Molly wears glasses, which to her is sometimes annoying but still something to be proud of.

Molly is sweet, spunky, helpful, and patriotic. She can be rather old-fashioned at times, since she came here from the 1940s, but she's really nice. She's always ready to pitch in with her sisters and friends and help out a good cause, whether it's cheering up a neighbor, collecting scrap metal, or planting a victory garden.
Dislikes: turnips, being ignored
Hobbies: helping out, baking, spelling, tap-dancing

Claire Dakota Findley (MyAG #37)
Birthday: July 28
Age: 11
Acquired: Received for Christmas 2015

Claire is a time traveler! After her time machine broke, she was stranded in the year 2015 (she's from 2014) and had to stay with the Findleys while she fixed it. But she ended up being great friends with them and decided to stay! When she's not tinkering with her time machine, she likes to spend time outdoors. She is outgoing, clever, active, and outdoorsy, and is always up for an adventure.
Dislikes: people who don't like the outdoors, running out of supplies in the middle of a project
Hobbies: time traveling, working on her time machine, hiking, photography, swimming, diving, climbing trees, babysitting, soccer


 Willa _____ (Comment a middle name suggestion!) (Willa)
Birthday: _____ (I haven't decided yet!)
Age: 7
Acquired: Purchased myself @ AGP St. Louis August 2016

Willa loves the outdoors! You can always find her climbing a tree, watching animals, or working in her garden. She's sweet and silly and thoughtful, too. She's quieter than her friends and sometimes has trouble communicating (I suspect she may be on the spectrum as well), but when she uses her words, she always turns out to have a good idea ready to share.
Dislikes: talking about her problems, people who are super critical
Hobbies: Gardening, animals, dress-up, singing


Emerson  _____ "Emmie" (Comment a middle name suggestion!) (Emerson)
Birthday: _____ (I haven't decided yet!)
Age: 7
Acquired: Purchased myself @ AGP St. Louis August 2016

Emerson is Japanese, and is very proud of her heritage.

Spunky and enthusiastic, Emerson is a little ball of energy. In addition to gardening, she loves to perform, and can always bring a smile to her friends' faces with a joke or a good dance move. Emmie always wants to be the star of the show; she tries hard to share the spotlight with her friends and appreciate their talents, too.
Dislikes: when people don't want to perform with her, when her big plans don't work out
Hobbies: Gardening, dress-up, ballet dancing, comedy, ice skating, singing


 
Camille ____ "Cammie" (Comment a middle name suggestion!) (Camille)
Birthday: ____ (I haven't decided yet!)
Age: 7
Acquired: Purchased myself @ AGP St. Louis January 2017

Camille is a little girl with an imagination the size of the ocean! She's always happiest when she's dressing up and dreaming she's a mermaid. When her head's not up in the clouds or under the sea, she's a great listener, and her friends can always count on her to cheer them up.
Dislikes: people who try to tell her she's not really a mermaid, inclement weather when she wants to go swimming
Hobbies: Gardening, dress-up, swimming, helping out



Babydoll (Corolle 2004 limited edition baby)
Birthday: January **
Age: 2 1/2
Acquired: Received when little sister was born ****

Babydoll is a very sweet baby, but she has a playful streak too! She has a big imagination, and is always up for adventure. For some reason, she collects coupons to various places and plays with them in her games.

Hector "Hexy"
Acquired: Found at an art gallery when I was one. Someone had left him there and not come back for him! My dad named him. And he was actually my very first doll!

We don't know much about Hector's personality since he's so little, but we do know he really looks up to his big sisters and is very sweet.

Mini Marie-Grace "Marace, MG" Gardner (Marie-Grace mini doll)
Acquired: Received for birthday

You can never be sure what Mini Marie-Grace is up to. Like the rest of her mini friends, she loves playing pranks and making mischief. She'll usually go along with what Mini Molly says. Technically, Alyssa owns Mini MG, but the minis refuse to go along with that sort of thing.


 Mini Molly MacIntire (Molly mini doll)
Acquired: Received for Christmas 2013

Despite not being the first arrival, Mini Molly is sort of the leader of the minis. She's always directing the others in some crazy plot for world (or at least dollhouse) domination. She will never ever admit that Peace owns her. She's sure that she owns the minis' little plush dino, but the other minis protest that. She's also very well-traveled, as I like to take her on trips. She's been nearly everywhere I have, from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Gulf of Mexico to the Washington Monument, a fact she likes to hold over the other minis.

Mini Kirsten Larson (hard-body Kirsten mini doll)
 Acquired: Purchased with own money online March 2016

The newest member of the mini gang is mini Kirsten, who stands out somewhat due to her vinyl body (the other two have soft bodies). While she loves pranks too, she's the only mini that will listen to the 18-inchers. She can be kind of sweet, which makes Izzy feel lucky to own her. Don't let your guard too far down, though--Kirsten has a real habit of sneaking chocolate chips in her little apron.




Shared with my siblings:
Rebecca Louise "Becca Louise" ****** (Springfield Collection Emma)
Birthday: August *
Age: 9
Acquired: Gift to my family from Gammo (grandmother) February 2016

Becca Louise is a very sweet girl. She is friendly and silly and creative and is actually based off of my mom when she was a kid! Only, unlike Mom, she [sort of] has her own talk show, called "Becca Louise on the Ironing Board"! ...But it usually doesn't work out.
Dislikes: discrimination against off-brands, shoes (most don't fit her well)
Hobbies: papercrafting, scrapbooking, sewing, ballet, hosting trying to host her talk show

A note about Becca Louise: She previously belonged to our grandmother, Gammo, who used her as a model when she used to sew doll clothes for us. But Gammo doesn't do that anymore, and so she gave Becca to us! Becca usually stays in my dollhouse, since when I play with my siblings, it's usually in my room, though sometimes she visits Hazel's and Reid's rooms. She's not in as many pictures, but she has lots of fun adventures!
