The Amelia Earhart celebrity doll portrays her as herself a 1930’s pilot, adventurer, and author. The doll was made by Girls Explore in 2004. Other Amelia Earhart dolls have been made and Mattel put out their version in 2018.

From the included biography, Amelia Earhart: Legend of Light by Lynda Pflueger book cover:

At dusk on May 20, 1932, pilot Amelia Earhart took off from Canada, determined to be the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Around 11:30 p.m., she ran into a severe storm and lightning. At dawn, Earhart could see ice on the wings of her plane. She was relieved when she finally spotted the rocky coastline of Ireland.

In Amelia Earhart: Legend of Flight, Lynda Pflueger explores the life of Amelia Earhart–courageous adventurer of the skies. Earhart believed that a woman could do anything a man could do. Through her efforts and beliefs, she paved the way for women to take their place in the aviation industry as fighter pilots, captains of commercial airplanes, and astronauts.

She disappeared July 2, 1937 attempting to fly around the globe.  People are still investigating her disappearance today.

The doll set included the Earhart 12 inch doll, a child-sized good quality working compass, and a hardcover Earhart biography titled Amelia Earhart: Legend of Light by Lynda Pflueger.

The doll comes wearing a brown leatherette pilots cap with matching bomber jacket, a white collared blouse with tiny white buttons and snap closures, a plaid tie, burgundy corduroy pants with a gold buckle brown belt,  black leather like vinyl lined, lace up boots, and a gold pocket compass on a chain attached to the pants.   

The dolls body is soft and bendable with attached plastic arms and legs.  All the clothing is removable. 

The Amelia Earhart action figure doll is one of six notable women educational doll sets made by Girls Explore while they were in the business.  The collection included Amelia Earhart, Harriet Tubman, Mary Cassatt, Bessie Coleman , Babe Didrikson Zaharias, and Dr. Dot Richardson.
