Someone Says American Girl Advertised And Sold ‘A Slave Doll’ In The ’90s, Gets Shut Down With Facts

Addy Walker was the fifth Historical Character of the American Girls, a line of 18-inch (46 cm) dolls by Pleasant Company. She represented the Civil War Era and was released in the Fall of 1993. As much as kids adored her, you could say that over time, Addy was forgotten about. But almost three decades after her “birthday”, Twitter user @NotLaja accused Addy of being ‘a slave doll’.


But they couldn’t be further from the truth. Fans of the series quickly rose to defend Addy, reminding us of all the hard work that her creators put into their dolls.
