About A Girl For All Time®

A Girl For All Time® dolls are 16-inch dolls who represent fictional British historical characters as well as modern English girls, and even a new boy doll named Max. Dolls from the Your Historical Girl™ collection are the perfect choice for those interested in English history, as each doll is a member of the same ancestral line through the generations. Each doll’s accompanying book explores their own search to connect with the history of their ancestors as well as depicting life in their own time period. AGAT also produces a collection of contemporary dolls in their Your Modern Girl™ line.

A Girl For All Time® was created by Frances Cain, an American who has lived most of her life in London. She found herself in need of toys for her own daughter which celebrated history and intelligent social play, and created this line of dolls to meet that need. As their website states, “Our goal is simple: to design and produce gorgeously crafted dolls and books that celebrate being a girl in an intelligent way and inspire a lifetime of play and creativity.”

The company practices slow manufacturing to reduce waste and maintain great product quality. This means that they take care to only manufacture the amount of dolls they know will be sold, and have begun an initiative to eliminate single use plastic from their packaging. They also donate returned or damaged merchandise to children’s organizations rather than sending the goods to the landfill. Due to their slow manufacturing practices, you may have to wait for a new restock of dolls before you can order your AGAT.

A Girl For All Time® Features:

  • 16 inches tall
  • Articulated elbows and knees
  • Wigged with non-removable hair
  • Painted and applied eye lashes
  • Heads can turn and tilt
  • Can sit and stand
  • Vinyl bodies
  • Hand finished with painted blushing on cheeks and hands

    The 16-inch AGAT is the perfect in-between size compared to the 18-inch American Girl® and the 14.5-inch WellieWishers™. The dolls each have their own unique size and proportions, which is why Pixie Faire offers collections with patterns specifically designed for each doll type. While the dolls also need  different sized shoes, they are similar enough in scale to share some accessories, props, and furniture pieces. 

    A Girl For All Time Clothes Jeans PatternGet the Pattern: When styling your AGAT in modern clothing, there's no better wardrobe staple than the perfect pair of skinny jeans. Your 16 inch A Girl For All Time® doll will look great in these slim fitting pants!  Design details include: a slim fit with a straight leg opening, functional front and back pockets, topstitched detail, and an elastic waist. Bonus! The specially designed cut-off pattern is also included.

    Lydia is my favorite. I like her face mold. Also, I have found it very difficult to find a doll with a storyline who has brown hair and blue eyes, like me.

    I like these dolls and that they are into their roots! I have worked on my genealogy and have 2 lines in England ,One line in Ireland and One Scandinavian line!! Finding your ancesters is fun to do and it is fun to learn their quirky ideas about things.While looking thru a list of people that died in the 1917-18 flu epidemic I saw President Trumps grandfather. It was sad that he immigrated from Germany, went back to visit and after his return to America he died from the flu. I’m sure there are a lot of sad stories in every ones Genealogy. Our ancesters had a hard life just as some of the Historical girls did.

    I grew up in the 60s. My mom in the 40s (her sister Frances had the green eyes with red hair). You would think one of those, but no. My first and favorite is Matilda. My British hubby got me interested in the Tudor era. She has a pretty face a nice hair. I’d like to see green eyes with other than red hair.

    Favorite is difficult. I have Lydia. My SO came by as I was removing her from her packaging, he was so awestruck that I put her on the side board in the dining room where she’s been standing ever since. Love her. I have Max – I was part of the “crow financing” – I put a top hat on him and believe me he wears it like he was born wearing it. I would love to have a Clementine. I love her look and the whole 30-40s style she wears so well. I collect dolls so I really would love to add Elinor, Amelia and Bex – They each have their own beauty . . . So “favorite” !?! Well, if I only could have one it would have to be Lydia.
