The JAP - now a doll!



Sheitel tip to Chaviva for filling me in on this one.

American Girl, that company that makes realistic-looking dolls, has just launched Rebecca Rubin, their newest historical character. She is a 9-year-old girl living on the Lower East Side in 1914 with her Russian-Jewish immigrant parents, siblings and a grandmother known only as Bubbie.

I'm pretty sure no tenement dweller dressed like that.

I want one. This doll has been rumoured for YEARS. I am glad to see that it is finally avaliable. I'll admit it, I am VERY serious about these dolls.

Sounds like Sydney Taylor's All of a Kind Family series.

Thanks for the sheitel tip :)

I'm seriously going to nab one of these. But only after I see her full line of accessories. Think there will be a Manischewitz bottle!?
