Who is ready for the Olympics to start? In celebration of this big event, we are looking back at retired American Girl winter sports sets and gear today.

From Heather –  My dolls are sure having fun at the Olympics! Front and center are Lindsey and Alissa as figure skaters.Towards the left is Josefina waving hello as she skis by  in her  Downhill Ski outfit from 2000.  On either side are the bobsled teams: Magic Attic against American Girl; Jacky in the Terrific Tubing outfit and Molly in the Dogsled outfit both from 1997. Finally in the very back right corner are Keisha and Miranda accepting their gold medals. Miranda is wearing the gymnastic jacket from 2001.

From Madelon – McKenna wears the Dogsled Outfit from 1997.

From Madelon – Nicki modeling the 2009 Frosty Fun set.

From Madelon – Kanani modeling the 2002 Ski Trip outfit bare foot!

From Ella – This is the retired My AG Sporty winter outfit. It includes the cream shirt, red vest, black leggings, boots, and fleece headband. The only downside is that the pants are tight and fall down. Overall it is a cute outfit!
