American Girl Is Taking Fans Back To The 1980’s
American Girl has recently debuted their latest doll from their iconic line of historical characters and from what we can tell already, she is totally rad. Her name is Courtney, and she is an adorable ’80s-themed doll complete with scrunchie, cassette player, and working, doll-sized Pac-Man cabinet.
According to her official bio, “Courtney Moore is growing up in California’s San Fernando Valley. She’s a total ’80s girl whose favorite place is Smiley’s Arcade because she loves playing video games. Courtney likes being in control of what happens, which isn’t always the case in real life. She and her stepsister, Tina, don’t always get along, and now that Courtney’s mom is running for mayor, things are changing at home. It’s a whole new game for Courtney, and she’s figuring out the rules as she goes.”
She’s also described as “an avid gamer growing up with her blended family in the fictional town of Orange Valley, CA.”
“Courtney loves going to the mall, especially the arcade, where she’s one of the top-scoring PAC-MAN™ players. But Courtney doesn’t only play video games, she’d like to create them and bring more girl characters to the forefront,” the brand explains.
If that weren’t enough, Courtney’s nostalgic accessories (which older fans will love, no less) include her Caboodles and Hair Accessories Kit with a real mini Caboodle, Care Bears™ Pajamas for both girls and dolls, and Courtney’s Care Bears™ Sleeping Bag Set. There’s even a doll-sized PAC-MAN™ Arcade Game that “plays like the real thing with multiple levels.”
The Pac-Man arcade cabinet retails for $149.99.
It’s been noted that this isn’t the first time that American Girl has embraced the world of gaming. American Girl previously partnered with Xbox to offer a set of doll-sized gaming accessories that included a console, controller and a gaming chair.
