    A Reminder That, Actually, Felicity Was The Best American Girl Doll

    NOT Molly, are you serious.

    This is Felicity. The ACTUAL best American Girl Doll there ever was.

    Mattel / American Girl

    Do not come at me with that Molly garbage.

    Cruelly, Felicity was "archived" in 2011.

    This is basically the same thing as when your parents told you that your beloved 13-year-old dog Daisy had to move to a large farm upstate so she could play with all the other dogs.

    1. If any of the historical American Girl dolls should be brought back, it's Felicity. Look at the pep in her step.

    Not everyone can make the same calico dress work every day of the year because they don't have Elizabeth Cole's budget, but Felicity could. Felicity embodies the pioneer American spirit.

    2. Her holiday look was ON POINT.

    Mattel /

    That BLUE! That CHOKER with the PEARL! This look is elegant AF. Honestly I would wear this to the grocery store later today, I don't even care.

    3. And what about that RIDING GET-UP???

    Mattel /

    Are you KIDDING me this look is FLY AS ALL GET OUT. Imagine stomping into a barn in this outfit. Everyone there is dead now. Felicity killed them.

    4. Felicity Merriman is the only American Girl with the honor of having been portrayed by Shailene Woodley.

    Flower child/tomboy kindred spirits.

    5. Her bed was the shit.

    Mattel /

    Um, yes, I WILL take a chic late afternoon nap here before tea, thank you very much. I do not care if I am a grown human being and this is a doll bed.

    6. Felicity was brave and outspoken, like when she stood up to the mean old town drunk, Jiggy Nye.


    And you know that standing up to someone whose name is Jiggy Nye cannot be easy.

    7. I mean...



    8. And remember when she STOLE BEN'S BRITCHES in order to rescue her horse??


    Felicity had NERVE. She was a true inspiration to tomboys everywhere.

    9. In an era in which girls were expected to be ladylike above all else, Felicity challenged norms and expectations.


    Felicity was independent, stubborn, and spirited, eschewing domestic duties in favor of adventure — also refusing to ride her horse side saddle, like a "lady" should do.

    10. Felicity and her BFF Elizabeth were role models for fun, supportive friendship between young girls.


    Even though they had different backgrounds, Elizabeth and Felicity complemented each other's personalities, and preferred to talk about life, politics, and ideas over clothing and boys.

    11. But OK, yeah, one more time: her clothing ruled.


    Soooooo prettyyyyyy.

    Come back to us, Felicity.


    Because you're the best. Obviously.
