Her name was Molly McIntire – the first American Girl doll I ever had, and the best holiday gift I ever received.
In those days, the American Girl dolls were essentially a brand new line of toys, accessories, and books. Molly was a World War II era character whose historical fiction narratives helped me learn the history of that war and its effect on the nation.
With the holiday season in full swing, we're hoping you'll share with us the story of the best gift you've ever recieved, and why. Log in to Patch and share your answer as a comment below.
