In the Hawaiian spirit of helping others, American Girl has partnered with
the National Wildlife
Federation to raise awareness of endangered animals like the
Hawaiian monk seal, while also introducing the 2011 Girl of the
Year, Kanani Akina.
Her story takes place in Hawaii's tropical paradise, and
teaches little girls that everyone has something to share that can
make life better for someone else. The 18-in. Kanani doll, outfits,
books and accessories are limited edition and available for just
$1 from each Kanani plush monk seal purchased will go to
NWF's wildlife education programs.
