I was definitely one of those girls who had the American Girl books and doll when I was growing up. My American Girl of choice was Molly McIntire. Oh, how I loved, just loved her outfits! That cute preppy look with the sweater vest, navy blue skirt and adorable Mary Jane shoes. However, other than just loving dressing her up in various outfits and doing her hair, Molly's stories were by far the most interesting to me. I think it was because I was fascinated with the 1940's and all that was going on. Not only did she have to endure the hardships of World War II, but she also grew up during a time of ground-breaking technologies, innovative music, and amazing fashion trends.
If Molly were here today, here's what I would want to know!
1.) Which food did you most miss because of the war rationing?
2.) Of all the outfits girls can purchase for your doll, which outfit is your favorite?
3.) If you could travel to 2009 and bring something back to your time during the 1940's, what would it be?
After writing those questions to Molly, is there anything you'd want to ask her or any other American Girls for that matter?
However the one question I'd really like to ask Molly is where in the world I ended up putting her doll? Unfortunately that is one mystery that can never be solved.
