After more than 20 years as a beloved historical character, this American Girl original will soon say farewell. At that time, Samantha’s collection—including Nellie and her accessories—will be placed into the American Girl Archives so that we may preserve her place in history.
This makes me so SAD!!! I know it is only dolls, But I have Samantha and I wanted to get Nellie for Lydia when she got older, but now they are retiring the dolls it makes it hard!!! Nellie has a doll named Lydia so it is meant to be!! Oh I know it is!!! Samantha and Nellie are best Friends. I have almost everything for Samantha, thanks to my parents when I was younger!! I have been saving it for Lydia when she turns 8 she will get it. It is so hard, I want to buy Nellie and save it for her, so we will see what happens. Aren't they beautiful dolls. They run about $100 each, so they are a little on the expensive side but worth every minute of the fun!!!
