Like, totally gag me with a spoon! The latest doll to join the American Girl collection is Courtney, a 1980s-themed doll who comes with a totally tubular backstory!
Courtney Moore is a video game lover who spends her time playing Pac-Man inside the arcade at her local shopping mall, looks up to the astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger and lives with her blended family.
Appropriate for an election year release, Courtney’s mom is also running for mayor of her California town. (OF COURSE SHE IS!)
Children of the ’80s will swoon over the doll’s nostalgic accessories: a mini Caboodle, Lip Smackers lip gloss and Care Bears pajamas, to name a few.
It sounds like Courntey is trying really hard to fit in with that grocery list of interests! We’ll just have to see if she’s as bitchin’ as she claims! Find more pics of Court after the jump!
