Samantha has been a beloved American Girl doll since 1986. She is precious to every American Girl fan. While it is one thing to add new American Girls, it is another thing entirely to remove one. Samantha is an original doll, a friend, and a favorite. You all are destroying the collection by removing/replacing her. I advise she is returned to the American Girl Collection before the biggest mistake ever is made. There will not be another doll that can replace this one, and if you have not discovered that, you will hear it from the fans.
