American Girl – Girl of the Year 2012 – Saige

As soon as I learned what 2013 Girl of the Year would be and what she was about I knew Samantha would be in love with her… and I was right! What Samantha has in common is she loves art and horses AND is a fourth grader… just like Saige!

Saige Copeland loves the arts and her horses. But when both of her passions are threatened, she turns to her creative side. With imaginative solutions, she proves that one girl can make a difference.

Saige is a spirited and imaginative young girl who loves painting and horseback riding at her grandma’s ranch in Albuquerque, New Mexico — the hot-air balloon capital of the world. Saige’s collection is available for one year; the character comes to life with a beautiful 18-inch Saige doll featuring long auburn hair and an array of outfits and accessories, including a hot-air balloon and a posable horse.

The Saige collection is available through American Girl’s catalogue, at, and at all American Girl retail locations.
