The New Doll

American Girl has added a new face to their historical doll collection, and not only will young girls love her, but we’re pretty sure their moms will too.

Courtney Moore is living her best life in 1986. She loves playing video games and rocking out to a good mixtape while wearing denim skirts, bangle bracelets and off-the-shoulder crop tops.

According to an American Girl press release, “She is a total ‘80s girl whose big, bright and bold ideas inspire today’s girls to find their inner hero to accomplish great things. Growing up in 1986, Courtney’s story reflects the pop culture of the decade from sky-high hair, neon-colored fashions, music television, and video gaming to major historical moments surrounding women in government and space exploration, as well as larger cultural shifts around blended families and emerging technology.”

Here’s a peek into Courtney’s collection.


First up we have Courtney in all of her 80s glory. She’s rocking a side ponytail, a stone washed denim skirt over hot pink leggings, and a tank and crop top combo. Can we talk about her white, slouchy leather boots? Amazing. Courtney also comes with her own book that introduces her to the American Girl audience.

Her School Supplies

Every gal in the 80s needed a super cool binder, puffy stickers, folders featuring their favorite animals and, of course, a pink pencil box. So that’s exactly what you’ll get with Courtney’s school supplies set.

An 80s Fantastic Bunkbed

We’re not sure which part is our favorite. It’s a tie between the rainbow comforters, PAC-MAN pillow and the phone. Raise your hand if you had that phone in the 80s.

The Jacket We All Had

While there are a few different clothing options for Courtney, this denim jacket is amazing, and we would be lying if we said this wasn’t our favorite.

Bring Back the Caboodle

If you were a girl in the 80s, you probably had a Caboodle. Courtney’s is full of makeup, hair supplies and, of course, scrunchies.

80s Sleepover

From sleeping bags to a totally awesome boombox, sleepovers in the 80s were clearly cooler. Also, the boombox actually plays music from Courtney's mixtapes.

Courtney’s PAC-MAN Arcade Game

Of course, Courtney hangs with her friends at the arcade where they love to play video games. So, you can get Courtney her very own PAC-MAN arcade game that actually works just like the 80s classic game. It has a working joystick and buttons, authentic arcade sounds, multiple levels and has a built-in rechargeable battery, so there are no quarters needed to play.

She’s Got a Mix Tape

Before Courtney can leave the house, she needs a few things, like her jelly bracelets, a cassette player with a rad mix tape, and Lip Smackers that she can wear as a necklace.
