So a bunch of people got an email today from American Girl with a teaser picture of the new historical character, Rebecca.

american girl rebecca sneak peek

Basically it is their sneak peek photo that gives us just enough of a look at her face to know she is going to have light brown hair, hazel eyes and a very cool velvet hat. She will be released May 31 and all the American Girl stores will have special events in her honor.

UPDATED – Here is another photo someone got (thanks for the link Lena):

When I was at the Chicago store the employees were hush hush on the details of Rebecca, but I am sure the stores are getting ready for some rearranging to make way for her collection.

Another Update!
