Originally released in 1986 and retired in 2009; Samantha is in excellent mint condition as are all of her accessories and clothing! Samantha Parkington was one of the first three Historical Characters of the American Girl Dolls, representing the Edwardian Era/Early 20th Century. Samantha was first released in 1986 along with Kirsten Larson and Molly McIntire.
In October 2008, American Girl announced that they would "archive" Samantha's entire collection; she, Nellie O'Malley, and their collections would become unavailable for purchase. The Samantha doll initially sold out on Feb 3, 2009, and official archiving was on May 31, 2009.
Samantha (occasionally nicknamed "Sam") is an orphan who, at the start of the series, is living with her old-fashioned Grandmother whom she calls Grandmary. Samantha only remembers her parents a little bit, somewhat flighty, she wants to please her “Grandmary” her but finds it difficult to follow all the rules and to be a “Lady”. Assisting in her upbringing is her Uncle Gardner, Grandmary’s son. He is very much a father figure in her life; she wants to please him as well and does not want to be left out of his life even after his marriage, to her new Aunt Cornelia. Samantha is curious which leads to her asking a lot of questions from the people around her and thus questioning the status quo. She can be very defiant when she feels she has been wronged. She is very interested in her parents and their lives, as they died in a boating accident when she was five years old and is compared in looks to her mother. She has a rough side such as climbing trees. Samantha is rather bold and mischievous and playful, generally going places she should not, sneaking off, and even standing up to her mocking neighbor, Eddie Ryland. Samantha is beguiling and bursting with ideas, and is very imaginative.
