Editor's Review

Meet the 2024 Girl of the Year Lila Monetti! Lila is the new girl on her gymnastics team, but she also loves horses. And girls can read more about how Lila balances horse camp with her gymnastics commitments in the Lila: My Journal book that accompanies the 18-inch doll. (And yes, McKenna, the 2012 Girl of the Year, makes an appearance in this book as Lila’s gymnastics coach!)

The soft-bodied doll has amber eyes that open and close, and curly caramel-colored hair with blonde highlights styled into two half ponytails in front. The doll wears a sparkly pink mock turtleneck tank top with pink track pants that have sparkly stripes on the sides. She wears light purple platform sandals and accessorizes with a blue beaded bracelet, a pink cord bracelet with multicolored gems, and two pink hairbands.

Lila’s Accessories gives Lila everything she needs, whether she’s off to the gym, stable, or her best friend’s house. There’s a crossbody bag, orange sunglasses, a pretend cell phone in a case, colorful hair gems, hair elastics, and a hairstyling book.

Get Lila ready for the gym with Lila’s Gym Bag & Gear set. This comes with a gym bag, a pretend protein bar, a pair of wrist warmers, a set of tape, a brush, two scrunchies, a headband, a water bottle, and stickers. 

And Lila will be ready to compete when wearing Lila’s Gymnastics Competition Outfit. The doll can wear a long-sleeved leotard with a pair of slippers and two matching hair ribbons. At the end of the competition, award Lila a medal.

Should I get it?

Lila makes a great addition to the American Girl Girl of the Year lineup. The doll will appeal to kids who also like horses and gymnastics, as well as to older doll collectors. The variety of accessory add-ons gives kids more styling options for the doll, as well as inspires more imaginative play.
