McKenna Brooks was Girl of the Year 2012. I took my granddaughter to the opening of the American Girl Store Houston to pick out a doll. I am glad that she choose McKenna.
I also purchased McKenna's Starter Collection and held it back in order to give some of it for her birthday and Christmas presents.
The Warm Up outfit and fishtail braids Hairstyle Card were only available with the Starter Collection. This was my first attempt to use the instructions on the card. One side came out fairly well, but the other side needs work.
We have misplaced McKenna's headband, ankle brace and twist sweater.
McKenna is a great doll and her outfits and accessories are nicely detailed. I would have loved her Loft Bed, but it was too expensive for me at the time. I did find a substitute loft bed at Goodwill that is very similar in white. I believed I paid about $7.00 for it. Can't beat a bargain like that! I plan on recreating her beam and bar.
