Awesome Academy

Accessory #BD37330

Get an A+ in FUN with our school for 18-inch dolls!

A little school for great big ideas!
The Our Generation Awesome AcademyTM is ready to show you why “school” rhymes with “cool”! We’re hitting the books and sharpening our pencils in this fully-stocked schoolroom playset for 18-inch dolls, and to be honest, we’re having quite a few giggles along the way. What will we learn today? Whatever it is, it’ll definitely be awesome!
Because there has never been a generation of girls quite like us. We’re scientists, songbirds, and dreamers. We spend our waking hours inventing new flavors of popcorn (more parmesan cheese, please!), signing petitions to protect polar bears, and having dance parties with our slumber party friends long after lights out. This is our time. This is our story.

Fun School Accessories for 18-inch Dolls!

Playing school has never been so much fun, and Awesome Academy has everything you need to build your very own world of learning!

“Brr-ing, brr-ring!” Ring the bell to let the students know when it’s time for class – the bell really works! Walk around the classic red-brick walls to find the classroom. Take a seat at one of the two student desks. Open up the lid to get notebooks and writing tools. Use the attendance sheet to check off who is present or absent. For students that try extra hard, the teacher can give out a certificate of achievement, or write their names on the good behavior sheet. Use the real chalk to write lessons on the chalkboard, and a real erasable marker to write on the whiteboard. Turn on the classroom lights to get a better look.

Wow, look at the time! The working clock will let you know when it’s lunchtime. What did you pack for lunch today? We love crunchy veggies and our favorite sandwich that’s cut out in a butterfly shape! Safety first! When it’s time for a fire drill, just hit the fire alarm button in the hall. Don’t forget – no running in the halls! OG kids love to study so many different subjects, it’s hard to choose just one favorite! Do you have a favorite class? (Or maybe two? Or three?) Awesome Academy comes with all kinds of school supplies, like miniature markers, stickers, pens, scissors, sticky notes, and more! Use the hallway lockers to store all of your things when school is done. With play areas inside and outside the classroom, the size of this school will be any size you can imagine!

    Caring for Your Awesome AcademyTM

    Assembly & Care of Your Awesome Academy
    To make the most of your Awesome Academy playset for 18-inch dolls, it is very important to assemble it carefully.
    We recommend assembling on a perfectly flat, clean surface like the floor (without a carpet.)
    All of the fun and cool features (like the working school bell and lights in the classroom) depend on the electronics to function, so when putting it together, please make sure that the black circuit pieces at the bottom of the side panels are lined up with the circuit pieces on the base unit.
    For detailed instructions and troubleshooting, check out our video!



    Uh-oh! Something isn't working right? The most common issue we hear about is that the bell and lights are not working. This is often a result of the floor piece and the wall piece not being completely attached, preventing the electronic circuits from connecting. Please ensure that your wall pieces are carefully but firmly pressed into the floor piece. It may seem as if the walls are fully inserted, however an extra push can often snap them completely into place, resolving the issue of non-functioning electronics.
    If you are still experiencing issues with electronics, you can try carefully unscrewing the base and making sure that the 4 circuit boards are intact.
    If you need extra help (everyone does sometimes!), reach out to our Customer Service Team via and we'll make sure to get your Awesome Academy up and running in no time!

      I want to know how to take apart the playset. We are moving and I could get it together just fine but I can’t get the plastic locks on the bottom to come apart.

      • Hi Darcy! The Awesome Academy was not designed to be disassembled once it’s put together. We don’t recommend taking it apart because it could permanently damage the toy. For moving purposes, it would be best to wrap it in padding and transport it in a box. We hope that your moving goes smoothly!

      We purchased the Awesome Academy. Upon putting it together the light above the chalkboard, the bell and fire alarm do not work. Everything is aligned and the lights and bells still do not work. If they worked this item would be rated a 5. After viewing multiple reviews on various sites this seems to be an issue with this product. Anything that Our Generation do to help fix this problem would be appreciated – especially since it is an issue that many purchasers are experiencing.

      • Hi Melissa! We’re so sorry you are experiencing issues with the Awesome Academy. We have addressed the issue with the manufacturing process, and we find that in most cases you can make the school function properly simply by pressing the walls a bit further down into the floor piece so that the electronic circuits can physically touch each other to connect. Sometimes it seems as if the walls are firmly in, but it is still possible to give them a little extra push down, which does in most cases resolve the problem with the lights and bell. If you try this and it is still not working, please reach out to referencing this comment and they will take it from there!

      My girls were so excited to get this set and assembly was very easy. While the pieces are really cute, the girls were so sad to see that the fire drill, the bell, and the wall lights did not work. I am very disappointed to see a product at this price not do what is advertised as this is very disappointing to explain to children.

      • Hi Melissa, We’re very sorry that you’re having issues with your Awesome Academy. Please reach out to our Customer Service at and we will help you troubleshoot so that you can get the features working!

      This is a very detailed and very fun set! My brother even likes it and he doesn’t really play with dolls! My sister and I play school with this! Once we used it for two hours😁 i also have the pink backpack set by .o.g. and two lockers from American Girl! They also work for this set. It is a good price for how much it comes with. Definitely worth buying!

    5. Rated 5 out of 5

      I think this set is awesome! My daughter thinks it’s a dream come true, with a bit of help from the website though the lights,fire bell and more work perfectly. I’m am really pleased with this product.

      My granddaughter wanted this toy very badly and is enjoying it–however–the alarm, light over the chalk board and school bell are not functioning. I see that many people are complaining about this. It took three hours for a very kind clerk at the Target in Brooklyn to find the set for me and I have no hope of returning it now that it is assembled and has been played with. I think it will be too much trouble trying to fix it or I may cause more harm. Having those working aspects is part of what one is paying for so your company should redesign the toy so that the parts work easily and well. It is basically and wonderful set.

      • Hi Patricia! We’re sorry you’re having trouble with the set. We are aware of the issue, and the schoolroom has been redesigned to fix the problem. Please reach out to our customer service team at and they can help you troubleshoot to get all the features working!

    7. Rated 1 out of 5

      I put this together perfectly, everything lined up, all the “clicks” heard and it still does not work. You would think that after dealing with this many people that are having trouble that the company would do something to remedy the problem. Wishful thinking. Don’t worry, I have already complained to the company by email.

      • We’re so sorry that you had issues with the Awesome Academy, and we are working on resolving the issues in manufacturing so that these issues do not keep occurring. Thank you for reaching out to our customer service and for taking the time to share your thoughts.

      The school set was given to my daughter as a birthday gift and for the price it cost it’s disappointing to set it up and find out the bell and fire alarm do not work!

      The classroom looks fab and the accessories as usual with our generation are fab. But we bought this item in the U.K. at weekend – my daughter has saved for months to buy it but was heartbroken when we got it home to find the light above the whiteboard is the only function that works. The bells nor the light above the chalkboard work. Changed it for a different one – exactly the same problem. She’s so upset but wants to keep the item – at £150 I think it’s too expensive to keep if it doesn’t function properly. Is there anyone I can contact in the U.K. Please for help/information?

      • Hi Hayley, We’re sorry the classroom isn’t working correctly. Please email our customer support at and they will be able to put you in touch with someone in UK who can assist you with spares. Thank you for letting us know about your issue, we look forward to correcting it!

      My daughter fell in love with this set❤ I purchased for her making honor roll @school😊! She was most excited by all the tiny accessory, pens,crayons,lunchbox,books,real paper, real tape, scissors, etc…best of all OG set yet…and we camper,jeep,house,vet,several beds,kitchen and island bar but this school beats it a out by far!

    14. Rated 2 out of 5

      I’ve purchased 2 of these sets and the bells do not work on either. Its super cute, my daughter loves it however she is bummed about the bells. Its clumsy to have to be returning. I hope there is a quick fix. I have snapped the sides down and heard the click. The chalk board lights up. Next step try the batteries, but why would the chalk board work? I did email customer service.

      • We’re sorry you’ve been having issues. Thank you for writing to us, our customer service team will get back to you as soon as possible to help you resolve the problem!

    16. Rated 3 out of 5

      Cutest set ever, but I purchased 2 of these and neither set functions as described. The light above the chalkboard and alarm do not work.

      • Hi Crystal! We’re sorry to hear that the lights in your Awesome Academy™ aren’t working. The Awesome Academy™ comes with 1 AAA and 3 AA batteries, but sometimes the batteries can get worn out before you take the toy home. We recommend replacing the batteries with fresh ones, which should solve the problem. If you are still experiencing problems after that, let us know at

    17. Rated 5 out of 5

      I love, Love,LOVE this set. A I’m really impressed with the attention to detail on the inside and the Outside of the classroom, but also that it includes so many accessories/ school supplies. My lights, alarm, and clock work great. As another reviewer mentioned below, make sure the walls really click all the way to the floor. Also, it is set to “demo” mode so you can test the lights for the white board before you buy it. Once put together don’t forget to turn the switch (located behind the radiator) to “ Play” mode so you can use the other features too.

      I got the school for my daughter as a present from Santa this past christmas.
      Its a very detailed and nice set to play. unfortunately all the light, ring bell, fire alarm they do not work. Changed batteries , nothing. Im waiting to hear from OG to see what can be done to fix this.

      I purchased this for my daughters 9th birthday from Target for 129.99, 140.00 including tax and it is a great value. It is very easy to assemble and has a lot of small pieces with great detail. Set up took about 10 minutes to snap the pieces in place and about 30 to unpackaged all the pieces. My daughter was in astonishment. I’ve watched her play school on the carpet religiously and now she can teach in her very own classroom. Addy our American girl fits nicely in the seat as well.

    20. Rated 1 out of 5

      Purchased as a birthday gift. Only one light works, above the white board. Nothing else. Fire alarm doesn’t work, school bell doesn’t work, and lights above chalkboard do not work.
      I can’t find another one to exchange it, and I really don’t feel like upsetting my daughter even more by just returning it. That was NOT worth a $130 price tag.

      I am an adult collector and I have to admit I was very impressed with this set. It has tons of play value. All the features give realism to the set. If you have problems with the bells and/or lights make sure you have installed the walls correctly. Even if it makes a “clicking” sound keep pushing until it makes another click sound. It happened to me and have read that it has happened to many who have bought this.

    26. Rated 5 out of 5

      I love this school house just as much as my daughter! It was definitely a great indulgence. All of the detail and features are amazing. The school floor was scratched up from the packaging, and probably box handling at the store. Not sure if the light switch and alarm bell were supposed to be functional, but overall a fantastic product.

    27. Rated 5 out of 5

      This looks so fun and it’s reasonably priced. American Girl would have this for like $300.99. This is why I stay loyal to Our Generation. Would love to have this set in the future. Comes with lots of supplies you would need in a real classroom. Absolutely love this,
