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.
