Joss Kendrick, American Girl’s 2020 Girl of the Year, is a fierce athlete born with hearing loss and a passion for surfing and competitive cheer. Whether she’s on her surfboard or in the gym, Joss shows girls the importance of trying new things, pushing past stereotypes, and being a good team player.
Joss comes to life through a beautiful 18-inch doll with long brown hair and brown eyes. She arrives wearing a swimsuit, hoodie, and shorts, plus a removable hearing aid in her right ear. Also included is the Joss paperback book by Erin Falligant. Joss’s accessories include a woven bag, a faux cell phone, sunglasses, a notebook, an ID card and faux money, a key to her brother’s VW Surf Bus, and two Surf Sister bracelets.
