Editor's Review

The American Girl of 2023 is putting on a show. Meet Kavi Sharma who loves performing music and dance. The soft-bodied doll has brown eyes that open and close. Her medium-length layered dark-brown hair is styled in a half ponytail. Kavi wears a cropped mesh top with multi-colored print, silver jogger-style pants, and pink tennis shoes. In the book that accompanies the 18-inch doll, kids can read more about the Bollywood routine Kavi choreographed for her school’s talent show. The book is done in a journal style, with handwritten journaling, pictures, and drawings. But can Kavi stay on top of her schoolwork while still putting on a good show? Read more about Kavi’s world in the book, and bring more of Kavi’s world to life through several highly detailed accessory sets.

Kavi’s Accessories includes an elephant good luck charm that Kavi got in India when she was 6. The doll can store the charm inside the quilted purse. The purse’s wide pink strap can be adjusted to allow for cross-body or over-the-shoulder wear. There’s also a weekly planner so Kavi can keep track of school, yoga, dance, and more. Accessorize the doll with a pink faux-fur bucket hat featuring the American Girl logo and a multicolor cuff bracelet.

Help Kavi get ready for the big show with Kavi’s Backstage Trunk. This shiny black wardrobe trunk features gold-trim details, handles on the side, and two locks on the front. Open it up to reveal a holographic interior lid with three organizational drawers, a hook with hangers, and stickers to customize the look. Of course Kavi’s costume is included. She’ll be wearing a pink sequin jacket with black satin collar, an iridescent silver baseball hat, metallic silver jazz shoes, sparkly black tights, pink fingerless gloves, a pink tulle boa, a black leotard with mesh rhinestone neck panel, and a sparkly skirt with pink fringe.

Kavi’s got a pretty sweet set-up for composing music. The Kavi’s Songwriting Accessories comes with a black 19-key mini keyboard that plays six different tones (classic piano, electric piano, chorus, synthesizer, winds, and brass) and features LED-lit colorized keys and a detachable stand. There’s also a drum pad with three colorized pads, pretend buttons and dials, and a set of drumsticks that the doll can really hold. The set also comes with a laptop with molded keys, an extendable cord to plug into the adjustable mic stand or the drum pad, and a reversible screen that shows music software on one side and a photo viewer on the other. The laptop and drum pad rest on a translucent purple desk with a coordinating stool. And the doll can wear DJ-style headphones. Three AAA batteries are required for the keyboard, and they are not included.

Kavi’s Backstage Set is the ultimate place for Kavi to get ready for a performance. It’s got a vanity with working lights that plays five different songs. There’s also a storage compartment on the back for hanging clothes and a reversible scene to portray either a backstage scene or a stage backdrop. The folding stage frame has two curtains with two-sided fabric. A rolling wardrobe cart comes with a full-length dressing room mirror. There are four hangers for the costume pieces: a full-length gold skirt, a sparkly black jumpsuit, a pink-striped robe with star print on the back, black shoes with silver sparkle, and a flower hair clip. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a director’s chair with lavender faux-fur seat and backrest, a colorful accent pillow, a headset, a microphone with mic stand, and a pink six-cube open shelf to store and display the accessories. These include a music note sign, a marquee sign, a mug, a water bottle, a cup of coffee, and a snack bar. You’ll also get a vase with three roses, two plastic boxes, an ornament string, a show program, and a sticker sheet. Store the set of makeup brushes, makeup case, spritz bottle, brush, and set of six hairbands inside the hanging travel case. This set requires three AAA batteries, which are not included.
