American Girl Crafts® introduces premiere craft projects and supplies inspired by McKenna Brooks, the 2012 Girl of the Year® from American Girl®.
The stories of McKenna’s adventures as a young gymnast in Seattle, Washington, are the basis for books and doll product from American Girl. The new kits from American Girl Crafts take cues from McKenna’s love of gymnastics, as well as her strength and determination to turn challenges into triumphs. Girls can capture and celebrate their own achievements with the Sticker Style Frame and Memory Album, or encourage friends and family to do their best with the Super Spirit Card-Making Pad. Wearable crafts like Star Spirit Hair Accessories, Color Coded Friendship Bracelets and an Iron-On Drawstring Bag are a fun way for girls to create their own style.
Even Polka Dot, McKenna’s pet hamster, provides inspiration—with a felt Sew & Stuff hamster pillow that girls can make. Always popular punch-out Paper Dolls and dimensional Stickers based on McKenna add extra value for crafty and artistic girls.
American Girl Crafts also gives girls a unique opportunity to enjoy the feature-length movie, An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars™ with their own friends with the Movie Party Kit. Each kit includes craft-able invitations, popcorn bowls, activities and more.
