About Our Generation®
Our Generation® dolls are made by Battat, a family-run toy business who designs the dolls and accessories in the U.S. and Canada, and manufactures them in China. Our Generation® dolls are affordable, are packaged with recycled and recyclable materials, and prioritize high standards of employee health and safety throughout their manufacturing process. You may have seen them on the shelves of your local Target store, which is their largest brick-and-mortar retail supplier. While their dolls are a great affordable option comparable to an 18-inch American Girl® doll, they also offer a wide variety of accessories like doll-sized cars, scooters, and horses.

Our Generation® Measurements
Our Generation® dolls are 18-inches tall, making them comparable to American Girl® dolls. The two brands of dolls have very similar bodies, and are pictured above in 123 Mulberry Street Gotchies both made from the same size pattern in order to show the similarities and differences in their proportions. The side-by-side comparison demonstrates that the Our Generation® doll has slightly smaller shoulders than the AG doll, who has a bit broader shoulders. The American Girl® doll also has a slightly longer torso than the OG doll. These differences between the two dolls mean that while most patterns and clothes made to fit 18-inch dolls should fit both dolls well, some slight adjustments may need to be made around the bodice of tailored garments to be sure that pieces fit the Our Generation® doll just right.
