Meet Lila! American Girl Introduces the 2024 Girl of the Year — Who Loves Horseback Riding and Gymnastics

Meet Lila Monetti!

Earlier this month, American Girl unveiled its 2024 Girl of the Year toy — a 10-year-old competitive gymnast who grows up in Minnesota and develops new hobbies through friendship.

The doll, who has amber eyes and brown hair styled in two ponytails, comes dressed in a sparkly pink tank top and sweatpants.

“Lila is a skilled athlete learning to take on new challenges, including joining a competitive gymnastics team, balancing her friendships, and exploring new hobbies,” reads the official description of the American Girl doll. “During her first visit to a nearby riding camp, Lila befriends their newest horse, a Palomino named Hollyhock, and discovers new ways to build her skills and confidence in the gym, while also helping Hollyhock settle into the barn.”

American Girl developed Lila’s story with author Erin Falligant, which is told through an illustrated magazine that comes with the doll, and a full-length book, Lila goes for the gold, which should be published in January 2024.
