Did you know that today, March 19 (1815) is considered to be the American Girl Josefina’s birthday?

American Girl Josefina

This is a photo of Lisa’s Josefina wearing a very colorful Guatemalan outfit she purchased. I think that is perfect for a birthday celebration – don’t you?

In celebration of Josefina’s birthday, why not visit her page at American Girl and learn more about her character, play her games, and help Josefina have a wonderful day!

Or if you happen to be at the Kansas City American Girl store today, you can learn about the clothing girls wore in Josefina’s day. American Girl staff will demonstrate how to tie a traditional shawl, called a rebozo, on a doll—it’s just like the one Josefina would have worn in 1824.  The event is free and open to the public.

Happy Birthday Josefina!
