You may have seen them on the shelves of your local Target store, which is their largest brick-and-mortar retail supplier.

      Our Generation® Measurements

      Our Generation® vs American Girl® 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.

      My favorite OG doll is not shown here but her name is April. She has red hair and wears glasses.

      This past Christmas I was amazed at the number of new OG dolls that were available with new face molds and ended up buying 5 of them to donate to Toys For Tots. I am sure 5 little girls were thrilled when they woke up Christmas morning.

      Gosh, they all have such pretty hair, it’s hard to choose. I guess since the dolls are all so pretty, I would choose Terry for the retro jacket and skirt. Usually, I don’t do vintage or retro, but I like that jacket. Happy stitching! Thanks for the opportunity.

      I like Paloma. I have only one OG, Retro Rose, whom I love. But, they are still way off AG. I do use my AG patterns for OG – just make small adjustment at the neckline to make it smaller and add back on the sides. They are very similar to AG but OG’s shoulders are quite a lot narrower.
