Violet Affleck Loves Her American Girl Doll!

Violet Affleck brought along a buddy while while out with her mom Jennifer Garner in NYC on Saturday — her Addy doll!

Suri Cruise may prefer to spend big bucks on frilly princess dresses, makeup and high heels, but Violet Affleck is all about the luxury toys! The $114 American Girl Addy doll was hanging by her braids as the 4-year-old toted her around the streets of NYC on Aug. 28, but she’s also a valuable teaching tool for the daughter of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.

Violet’s little pal is based on the real-life historical hero Addy Walker. Addy’s story begins in the days before the Civil War as she and her mother, who are slaves, try to escape from their plantation in order to find Addy’s father and brother, who’ve been sold. Sure beats a Bratz doll!

Mom Jennifer Garner is getting her mini-me started early on education and appreciating the arts — the pair checked out the Whitney Museum in Manhattan before heading back to Los Angeles. This family had a jam-packed coast-to-coast weekend: after landing in LA, Violet, sister Seraphina, mom, and dad Ben Affleck hit the Farmers’ Market in Brentwood on Sunday! Aren’t they the most down-to-earth family in Hollywood?
