Great Gifts: American Girl Doll

Okay, we don't actually sell American Girl Dolls at the Tenement Museum Shop. But Rebecca Rubin (left) was sort of inspired by the Museum. She's the daughter of immigrants who confronts a whole host of growing-up issues in 1910s New York. She has to introduce her cousin, who's come straight from Russia, to American ways and help her learn English for school. There's the trip to Coney Island and a stint in silent film. And then there's this, from Changes for Rebecca:

"Rebecca goes to the factory where Ana's brother and father work, and she's horrified at the terrible conditions, but she knows the workers desperately need their jobs."

Straight from the Piecing it Together tour!

And just look at these teeny buttoned boots - adorable! Who can resist?

And her lunch set comes with a bagel, a pickle, and some rugalach!
