Courtney’s official bio
The latest doll’s official bio reads, “Courtney Moore is growing up in California’s San Fernando Valley. She’s a total ’80s girl whose favorite place is Smiley’s Arcade because she loves playing video games. Courtney likes being in control of what happens, which isn’t always the case in real life. She and her stepsister, Tina, don’t always get along, and now that Courtney’s mom is running for mayor, things are changing at home. It’s a whole new game for Courtney, and she’s figuring out the rules as she goes.”
Furthermore, Courtney stars in a book series titled ‘Changes the Game’, whose purpose is to show the young readers how life was for girls in the '80s. Courtney’s book is set in 1986. It introduces her as, “an avid gamer growing up with her blended family in the fictional town of Orange Valley, CA. Courtney loves going to the mall, especially the arcade, where she’s one of the top-scoring Pac-Man players.”
American Girls has also reportedly teamed up with a non-profit organization called ‘Girl Who Code’ and is said to “match customer donations dollar for dollar (up to $50,000) through the end of the year.” The company is further donating $5,000 to four members of ‘Girls Who Code’ to “help further their education in computer science or a related field.”
