Even though Caroline is not retired (yet), she is a historical doll which puts her whole collection in the past. Here are some fun photos of Caroline from the Doll Diaries community.

From Leah – I just got my Caroline doll about a week ago, and I absolutely love her! I renamed her Amelia Leigh Thomas! She is absolutely gorgeous for anyone who is thinking about getting her. She is so photogenic!

From Ellie – This is my doll Caroline. She’s wearing her Work Dress, which is still available from American Girl for $32.

From Eva K – This is a photo of Samantha wearing Caroline’s travel outfit and spencer and hat(2012). Cécile is wearing Caroline’s meet outfit(2012). Kirsten is wearing Caroline’s nightgown(2012).
