Lots of buzz on Rebecca Rubin, the newest American Girl Doll in the series, this week. Although she doesn't officially launch until May 31, Rebecca has been all over the web (and, starting tomorrow morning, CNN - be on the look out for an interview with Museum President Morris Vogel, filmed in the Confino apartment).
While we didn't have any input into the doll's creation, the designers did visit the Museum to get a sense of the neighborhood's history, and we're hosting guests from American Girl Place on 5th Ave for a special tour of the Confino Family Living History program. Details, via American Girl:

Sounds like fun! I hear there are still tickets available. What will our Victoria Confino say when she sees so many little girls toting pretty dolls into her 1916 world?
