The new Truly Me microsite features a “Fun-spiration” section that’s refreshed daily with interactive crafts, doll activities, quizzes, games, and recipes. There are also sections dedicated to Pets, Quizzes, and Do-It-Yourself videos, plus a Fan Gallery to submit favorite girl-and-doll moments or finished crafts projects. The Truly Me world will also include a downloadable Friendship Ties App that lets girls make virtual friendship bracelets to save and share, as well as a line of new Truly Me activity books—Friends Forever, School Spirit, and Shine Bright—designed to encourage self-esteem through self-expression.

Also launching on May 21 is the new Truly Me Signature Studio retail experience, which is kicking off at American Girl’s Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles flagship stores.

Choosing from a variety of colors, patterns, silhouettes, prints, and embellishments, girls can design a custom doll outfit or doll carrier on a hand-held tablet, which is then transferred to the studio’s high-tech printer and produced for the girl in just minutes.
