Sneak Peek – A Girl For All Time Clementine

Early this fall A Girl for All Time will be releasing the third doll from their line of 16″ dolls based on stories and events in British history. The characters all have one thing in common – they are descendants of the Marchmont family and their family trunk and necklace get passed on from generation to generation. The first doll in the series was Matilda, Your Tudor Girl, whose adventures took her from her “boring” country life into the glamour and drama of King Henry VIII’s court.

The second doll in the series, Amelia, Your Victorian Girl, lives in London in the late 1880’s. She is taken from her countryside school and placed in the city of London with her somewhat odd Aunt and Uncle when it is feared her father has died at sea.  Amelia is turning 13 and that means she will inherit the trunk passed down to her – except her Uncle has a different idea for the trunk and its contents. Amelia’s adventures take to places she would have never imagined including the stage – and yes, there is a happy ending, too.

And that brings us to the next story – Clementine, Your 1940s Girl, who is going to take your breath away! Clementine lives in England during WWII and her story takes her from the city to the country (opposite from Amelia’s story). I was lucky enough to get to see the working prototype of Clementine and her collection in February at Toy Fair and I was completely captivated by her. A Girl for All Time posted this photo of her on Facebook today and gave me permission to share it with you:

Let me just say that this photo does not do her justice or her clothing justice in any way!! Yes, she has short, straight red hair but her face mold is different from Matilda and Amelia’s. Her meet dress is just perfect for her. The muted colors, the sheer fabric, so perfect. The A Girl for All Time team really goes all out on the details and quality as well as historical accuracy in every aspect of the doll.

This is a photo I took of Clementine from my iPhone while we were at breakfast during Toy Fair. The sun was coming in through the giant windows and you can really get the effect of how sheer the fabric in her dress is. And those ankle socks and brown shoes, oh yes, how sweet are they???

I can not wait until we get to share the full photos of Clementine, see her in person again, and of course, read her story, too!

    Cute if u were to compare her face mold to any doll what would it be Char

  11. #1 AG Fan says:

    She kind of reminds me of Emily! Red hair (expect Emily’s is longer), World war 2, London, etc.

  12. Sparkie says:

    Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. I think I see the new doll I’m getting after Saige, and I haven’t even seen her face yet!

  13. Pretty!

  14. I do NO think it will be possible to wait until fall! That dress is adorable. Those shoes are adorable. I think any doll with short, bobbed red hair is amazing…. 😀

  15. sabrina says:

  16. I agree, she is quite like Emily.

  17. Elizabeth says:

    I want her already!!

  18. I totally agree #1 AG Fan

  19. Agreed: I want her already. I LOVE short hair.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    Do you own Clementine?

  21. Elizabeth – no, not yet. I just got to see the prototype earlier this year.

  22. Where can you get a girl for all time books? From your summaries they look like really good books but I haven’t been able to find them anywhere.

  23. AB – You can find them on and on Amazon.

  24. Elizabeth says:

    Well lucky you! I have been in-visioning what she looks like… Very Pretty!

  25. I so have to get her! I have not purchased a Girl for all Time doll yet, but she may have to be my first. I really like the company and I cannot wait for Clementine! :)

  26. I. WANT. HER. NOW. She is so pretty! And I’m kind of obsessed with WWII and history, so she’s perfect!

  27. Thanks Char

  28. sabrina says:

    Char,Can you do a post about how to travel with an American girl doll and what to bring,possibly before July?Char,Can I send you a couple/ few tutorials? Tomorrow I am going to the American girl store.Char,Can I send you pictures?

  29. sabrina says:

    Sorry Char for all the questions!^^^^^^^^^ P.S. If I get camp doll diaries craft ideas,Char,Can I send it to you?

  30. char, I really want a girl for all times but they are a little pricey so do you think the company will send you one sometime for a give away?

  31. I really love her! I’m a sucker for red heads….

  32. Chants: *I’m already broke, I’m already broke.*

    Who am I kidding? WANT.

  33. Wow, she is truly a beauty! My sister Liz has Matilda, she’s so lucky :D. Also with the hair, she reminds me of my custom Emily doll, Hope.

  34. Lol Lena, I’m broke to! Saving for Sagie:D!!!!!

  35. Elizabeth says:

    Grrr… The anxiety is building up!! I

  36. Lena – luckily for you, she will not be available for sale until the end of the summer 😉

  37. StoryTeller says:

    Lena– Same here! Eeerrrrggghhh!
    I can’t wait to see more!

  38. I am going to London in September! I’m hoping I’ll be able to pick up Clementine at Harrod’s and bring her home with me…here’s hoping she’ll be released by then, and not sold out. These dolls are amazing!!

  39. YES! I was contemplating ordering Amelia, but then thought I might wait for Clementine. The red bob sealed the deal for me. I’m definitely getting her! Although I may cheat and order Amelia before. September’s a few months away!

  40. Cool fabric! Yay, someone living in WWII! Who will be next? :)

  41. Lena- I know. I just blew all my money on Saige in the beginning of April.

  42. Wow! Shes so pretty!

  43. I would really like to get one of these dolls but they are more money in American dollars than they look to be in British pounds. They are pretty though. Maybe someday I’ll get one! Clementine seems to have a lot in common with Emily from American Girl. Both are British, both are sent away during World War Two, both have red hair, and their dresses seem a bit similar too! Interesting!
