Grace's hobby is baking. Grace loves to bake. Her dream is to be a leader in a French bakery business.

I would give Grace 41/2 smiles. I had a fun time playing with Grace. My friends and I play with American Girl dolls a lot. I also love her outfits. The whole set is $120. If you want more on American Girls, visit the website: americangirl.com
