Molly McIntire is a lively, lovable schemer and dreamer growing up in 1944. The world is at war, and she misses her father who is overseas caring for wounded soldiers. Molly doesn't like many of the changes the war has brought, like rationing rubber, eating turnips for dinner, and not seeing Dad on Christmas. But she learns the importance of getting along and pulling together - just as her country must do to win the war!

Along with Samantha and Kirsten, Molly was one of the three American Girls that launched the collection in 1986.

Molly's Paper Dolls


Prior to the Holiday 1994 catalog, Molly's Evergreen Velvet Dress had no buttons on the front and had a wider band of lace at the sleeves and neck, but starting with that catalog, her velvet dress featured 6 buttons down the front and narrower lace trim.

Molly's 1997 Special Edition outdoor outfit was a cute tennis outfit complete with tennis racquet. A very adorable Halloween hula costume which was introduced prior to 1991 was retired in 2001. To tie-in with Molly's new Halloween Craft Book, the Hula Costume was reintroduced in July 2004. The grass skirt in the new Hula costume is shiny plastic, whereas the original costume's skirt was made from paper.

From the time it was introduced through 1997, Molly's Winter Activities set was comprised of a Miss Victory costume, paper dolls and a kaleidoscope. In 1998 the set was redesigned. Gone was the costume and in its place an alarm clock, ear drops, a box of kleenex and a war poster were added. This new set was later retired completely in 1999. In the Spring of 1999, the Miss Victory costume became available by itself as it still is today.

Originally, Molly's school lunch featured a brown paper bag, but in Winter 2000 it was replaced with a nifty metal lunchbox. Molly is the only American Girl doll to have had her table and chair set replaced with a new design. Her first set was a wooden drop-leaf table and matching chairs. In Spring 1999, the wooden chairs were made available separately. The wooden set was retired and replaced by the current chrome set in Spring 2000.

Revamped versions of Molly's Christmas Stocking and Christmas Box made their appearance in the Holiday 1994 catalog. Originally the ballerina doll that came with the Stocking was an articulated wooden doll which was replaced with the current white plastic one. Molly's Christmas Box set originally featured a real glass spherical snow globe with a wooden base. In 1994 the globe was replaced with a plastic dome style globe with a red plastic base. Also, the nurse doll included in the Christmas Box set was redesigned in 1994. Finally, another item that went through a change was the Disney flipbook in Molly's Christmas stocking set. The book featured Donald Duck in 1993, Mickey Mouse in 1994 and from 1995 to present it featured a scene from the movie "Fantasia" which was originally released in 1940.

In July 2004, Samantha, Molly, Kirsten, Josefina, Addy and Kit's "Stories & Outfits Collections with Caddy" were all retired.

Molly's Radio was retired after becoming sold out in February 2005, and in August, Molly's Victory Garden Dress was retired.

January 2006 saw the retirement of Molly's Route 66 Outfit and her bicycle and in February 2006, all of the historical girl short story books were retired including all five of Molly's short stories. Molly's Miss Victory costume was retired in April 2006. June 2006 saw the discontinuation of Molly's original Bed, Aviator outfit and Party Treats. Her bed was retired in favor of a slightly redesigned version as was her Nighttime Necessities set. Finally, December 2006 brought the retirement of Molly's After-school Outfit and her Dude Ranch Outfit.

In 2007, a number of items of Molly's collection were retired including her Umbrella and Galoshes, Route 66 Accessories, Plaid Suitcase, Christmas Stocking III, Embroidered Cowboy Boots, Classic Brown Oxfords and large Trunk, Molly's Route 66 Adventure, Have A Molly Halloween, Molly's Mystery Party Game, Molly's Movie Trading Cards, Lights! Camera! Molly: A Behind-the-Scenes Movie Guide, Story Collection book, Short Story Collection and both posters.
