Today I wanted to get out my sister’s AG Doll Bin and just look through her stuff. Whenever I get it out I always look at her old catalog.
This is a picture of the front of the catalog. It’s the 1998 Holiday Catalog!
Who is that? Could it be? Yes, it’s Felicity’s horse, Penny in the Girl of Today section!!
She was called “American Girl Horse”. In this catalog Felicity doesn’t even have Penny or any stable-ish things, just her riding outfits.
I think it is SO weird and kinda cheap of AG to use an old Girl of Today Horse to be Penny. Why don’t they just make a brand new one?
Just in case you wanna know, here’s what it says about her:
“What a beauty! Braid her thick brown mane and tail, and stroke her velvety coat. Then position the royal blue saddle blanket and leather saddle, adjust the stirrups, take up the reins, and you’re off! Don’t forget to give her the name you’ve always dreamed of for a horse of your own.”
She sold for $58.
I just looked at a catalog that has “Penny” in it. Here’s something else interesting:
She is still called “American Girl Horse” and was sold for $75.
The description says:
“This beautiful horse looks just like Penny! Includes attached reins, a royal blue saddle blanket, and a faux leather saddle.”
This is all just so weird.. and can you believe how much they raised the price of her?? It’s ridiculous!
What are your thoughts about this?
