Indigo American Girl 2017 Girl of the Year Reveal + Giveaway

For anyone that loves Indigo’s American Girl Boutiques, the start of the new year brings the excitement of the American Girl – Girl of the Year – reveal. Girls across Canada wait with anticipation to see which new doll will be released. Some past favourites have included Grace who had a love for baking and Lea Clarke whose rainforest house was one of my most coveted American Girl accessories. Indigo American Girl 2017 Girl of the Year Giveaway

Indigo American Girl 2017 Girl of the Year

Now as we move past 2016 and into 2017, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the 15th Girl of the Year and the 2017 Girl of the Year: Gabriela McBride. Indigo American Girl 2017 Girl of the Year Giveaway Gabriela is a quiet and creative girl growing up in a family of artists. Three books will tell her complete story with the first hitting Indigo shelves in January. Gabriela’s story tells of her stuttering and her love of poetry that helps her to overcome her struggles. She’s active in the community and helps to stop the community arts centre from being torn down. As a mother, I believe her struggles and accomplishments will help girls across Canada to find their own place as they grow.

Where to Purchase Gabriela McBride

In Canada, Gabriela McBride will be available exclusively at Indigo. She can be purchased online at, via kiosks at all Indigo, Chapters, IndigoSpirit and Coles Stores and of course in person at all American Girl Specialty Boutiques at select Indigo and Chapters stores. The Gabriela collection includes a beautiful 18-inch Gabriela doll featuring curly dark-brown hair and warm brown eyes, an exclusive outfit that reflects her creative side, and a book chronicling her story. Gabriela also comes with several performance-inspired outfits and accessories, including a dance barre, rehearsal and dance outfits, plus pretend headphones and a microphone. Additional Gabriela products and books will be available starting in spring 2017.

Ready for Another Chance to Win?

Indigo is giving fans another chance to win their very own Gabriela McBride doll beginning January 1st, 2017!  You can enter online  here for the chance to win 1 of 10 Gabriela dolls. The contest runs exclusively online closing on January 31st. Full contest rules are available here.

Welcome Gabriela!

As Indigo welcomes Gabriela to their stores, I urge you to take time to visit with your little American Girl fan. Charlie and I love heading into the American Girl Boutique at the Toronto Eaton Centre and seeing first hand the new doll up close. In the past, we have laughed over me wishing that I had the baking equipment Grace owned or even her sense of style and Lea’s rainforest house was pretty much my dream backyard.

I wish you and your families all the best in 2017 and thank you for spending time here with my family throughout the last year.

  4. Would love to win this beautiful new American Girl “Gabriela McBride”. My younger daughters would love to have her to play with. Unfortunately, I do not have any more money to purchase more girls so the only way they will have her is to win her in a contest or the lottery. I choose this year to purchase more accessories for them because they did not have too many. So I had everyone give them even a piece of clothing. Thank you for the opportunity:)
