Nanea Mitchell

Ages:8 and up

Nanea Mitchell, American Girl’s newest BeForever character, is a brave and determined girl growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1941 just as Japan attacks Pearl Harbor and America enters World War Two.Her efforts to help and heal her friends and neighbors during wartime are all driven by her spirit of aloha: the understanding that everyone is connected and that joy and pain are shared. The 18” Nanea doll has big hazel eyes and wavy dark-brown hair. She arrives in a button-front pake blouse with an island graphic, sailor-style moku shorts, underwear, and shoes with crisscross straps. Also included are a faux-hibiscus flower hair clip and a paperback of Growing Up with Aloha by Kirby Larson.
