American Girl Lindsey was the first Limited Edition doll (now known as the Girl of the Year) and while she was available from 2001-2002, she was not very popular at first. Now she actually hard to find in the secondary market – especially for a fair price. For today’s Throwback Thursday post I asked readers to send in their Lindsey photos – since we do not have Lindsey in our collection.

One of our Facebook friends, Chris,  posted this picture of the Lindsey she recently got for a bargain. She even got Lindsey’s scooter, helmet, laptop and bag to go with it. Lucky girl!!

Ava’s Lindsey is good friends with Kit and have fun going for picnics and having tea parties under the trees.

The following set of photos are from Cristin:

Here is Lindsey enjoying her scooter and being safe with her helmet. The gloves she is wearing have Velcro on them to allow her to hold on.

Here’s Lindsey showing off her book and awesome accessories. Her accessories include her scooter, gloves, and helmet and her backpack, notebook with pencil, laptop (which works as an address book and calculator), and two disks which can be put into the laptop.

Here’s Lindsey sitting on the couch ready to read her book.

Lindsey modeling her meet outfit.

Maddie got Lindsey on Ebay for $70.00 – she did need some hair help but that’s all. 

The next set of photos are from Diana:

Lindsey close up! Oh, I love her eyes!

Diana has rescued two Lindsey’s – they are twins.

Lindsey’s computer set has to be one of my all time favorites!

Here Diana decided to show Lindsey in 2002 and what she would be in 2013 based on her love of riding a scooter.

Tess (from Little Sisters) as she meets Lindsey riding her scooter.

Marjorie’s Lindsey is enjoying a ride on her scooter outside.

From Rachael – Here is Molly modeling Lindsey’s adorable blue laptop. It came with two CDs, a carrying case, and a sparkly blue journal… but Molly mostly just likes to use it to do some online shopping! 

Thanks to all who sent in Lindsey photos this week! She is so cute and one of these days, I would like to add her to my collection, too.

Next week’s Throwback Thursday spotlight is going to be on retired outfits and items from KIT and RUTHIE’s collection. If you have photos of Kit and/or Ruthie in retired outfits, accessories or furniture from their collection I’d love to share them. Please save me time by resizing your images to 540 pixels wide first and put THROWBACK KIT in the subject line of your email to me at
