But the day came when sock monkey and I had to part ways. I’ll never forgive you kindergarten. I imagine the separation anxiety felt by young girls torn away from their American Girl dolls was equally as traumatic.
That said, I’ve always been told that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and at least for those fans of Addy or Josefina, a reunion might be in the works. The Mattel-owned doll maker is hiring a project manager to ensure that the brand and its products continue to befriend a new generation of young ladies for years to come. Of course, the job is also open to fans of G.I. Joe or, as it were, sock monkeys.
