What It Is
The Go! Go! Sports Girls Read & Play Doll and Book Sets each come with a soft doll and a paperback book about a specific sport. The 16-inch dolls are dressed to play a specific sport, from a leotard for gymnastics to a swimsuit for swimming. Each doll also comes with a sports-themed accessory such as a backpack, sporting equipment, or a towel. The storybooks, written by Kara Douglass Thom and illustrated by Pamela Seatter, star the Go! Go! Sports Girl as she overcomes obstacles or fears to do her best and achieve her dream. Each book also includes fun facts about the sport.
There are six Read & Play Doll and Book Sets available: Swimmer Girl Suzi, Dancer Girl M.C., Gymnastics Girl Maya, Cheerleader Girl Roxy, Soccer Girl Cassie, and Runner Girl Ella. Each is sold separately.
