CHARLESTON, S.C., Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine the excitement a young girl would experience to see and hold a doll that looks just like her and, coincidentally, shared her name. Seven-year-old South Carolina-based Gabby, star of the YouTube channel Gabriella Damaris Show, was thrilled to learn that the American Girl "Girl of the Year" 2017, not only looked just like her with dark skin and curly hair, but the doll also shared her name: Gabriela. Family Video Network, her YouTube network, worked with Mattel to get the doll shipped to her ahead of its release to surprise Gabby over the holidays. Gabby did not know what she would be opening when the camera started rolling. The result is totally priceless. "She has curly hair just like me! And I just really love her skin tone, which is like the same skin tone as mine. Like this whole doll is perfect." American Girl and Gabriella Damaris Show fans can check out the surprise in this YouTube clip, which was posted on New Year's Day.
