Okay, girls. I have been counting down how much longer until the release ALL DAY!! And around 9:40 my mom said that she read the release was online (but really it wouldn’t be online around 10:00 PM our time), so I RUSHED to the computer and went onto the AG site (I was literally shaking- I was so excited!), and then I counted down the minutes until 10:00- then it was time! I clicked refresh and VOILA! Let’s just say these lyrics “A whole new world! A dazzling place I never knew!” would’ve matched PERFECTLY in the background of me looking at all the new stuff!!!! 😀
Now, after dying for an hour (no joke) I am FINALLY ready to share my thoughts over everything with you!!!
WELCOME BACK SAMANTHA!!! I know, a lot of people don’t like the pink and they think it doesn’t “match” her, but I LOOOVE her new Meet Outfit!! It is SO beautiful and she looks great in it!! 😀 ALSO- it is true- you can buy the Meet Outfits separately for $36.00 AND AG has raised the price of Doll and Book to $115.00- ugh 😕
Samantha’s Frilly Frock is $36 and oh, so cute!! I love that it’s satin and I’m also loving the color combo of pink and purple- my two favorite colors! I also like that they used lavender, since that’s Samantha’s favorite color
Samantha’s Bicycling Outfit is $34. It’s cute, but I don’t think it’s all that great. 😉
Samantha’s Nightgown is $24 and very cute! I love those little slippers!
Samantha’s Holiday Set is $64 and can I just say that I LOVE it?! I need money!! 😛
Samantha’s Fancy Coat Set is $34 and SO PRETTY!!! I love the black and white and the animal print!!! 😀
Samantha’s Dog, Jip is $22. I like the fluffiness of him, but his face isn’t very cute… 😕
Samantha’s Bedtime Accessories is $44- That bear looks an awful like Bitty Bear…. Ugh, AG….
This set isn’t that great in my opinion, but the music box is cool! I like that it really works!
Samantha’s Bicycle is $115 and I LOVE it!! I love the colors and just everything about it!! SO cute! 😀
Samantha’s Bed & Bedding is $150 and so GORGEOUS!! 😀
Samantha’s Ice Cream Parlor is $300 and I NEED IT!! It’s SO ADORABLE!! I LOVE the cash register!! I’m dying over this set!!! This is probably my favorite of the entire release!!! 😀
Addy Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. Addy’s new outfit is SO pretty! I love the dark blue on her! And that little patchwork bag is adorable!!
Addy’s School Outfit is $34. At first I wasn’t sure what I thought about this, but I think it’s really cute!! 😀
Addy’s Lunch Pail is $28. I love that it even has the “love” cookies!!! That’s so adorable!!! 😀
Caroline Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I think it’s kinda sad that her outfit didn’t change much 😕
Caroline’s Party Gown is $36 and SO pretty!! Again, I’m loving the satin!
Caroline’s Table & Treats is $150 and reminds me quite a bit of the one from Marie-Grace and Cecile’s Collection…. But- it’s still cute! 😛
Josefina Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I really don’t like the blue added into her outfit. And I’m also so sad that she didn’t get anything else new. I feel so bad for her
Julie Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I do not like her new meet outfit at all. The original one was way better! And honestly- those sunglasses make her look weird- in my opinion away 😉 😛
Julie’s Tunic Outfit is $34. The only thing that caught my eye were those heels!! I’ve never seen heels that big for AG dolls before!!
Julie’s Winter Coat & Hat is $34 and I am DYING over this!!!! I really think my dolls need that coat!! 😀
Julie’s Holiday Outfit is $34. I wasn’t very impressed with this outfit… It just didn’t really appeal to me very much 😉
Julie’s Snack Set is $50. I LOVE all of those snacks!! SO CUTE!! 😀
Julie’s Egg Chair Set is $100 and I think it’s adorable!!! And that’s so cool that you can really play music through it!!!
Kaya Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. Same with Caroline- I think it’s sad that her outfit didn’t really change
Pow-Wow Hair Set of Today is $18. I’m not too interested in this 😛
Kit Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134. I think her dress cute and it’s definitely better than her original Meet Outfit in my opinion! The main thing I like is the hat 😛
Kit’s Reporter Dress is $38 and I think it’s pretty cute!
Kit’s Photographer Outfit is $34. I am really in love with that sweater, but I definitely wouldn’t buy the outfit 😉
Kit’s Typewriter Set is $50 and can I just say- YAYAY!!! I’ve missed her old typewriter for such a long time and I’m SO happy that she has one again!!! I’m probably gonna have to buy this someday. I love typewriters!! 😀
Rebecca Doll, Book, and Accessories is $134 and I’m DYING over her new outfit!!! And OMGOSH that HAT!! I need to buy this someday!! 😀
Rebecca’s Holiday Outfit is $34 and again I am DYING!!! That is such a BEAUTIFUL dress!!! 😀
Rebecca’s Teatime Traditions is $68. It’s cute, but that is just way too much money 😛
Rebecca’s Director Set is $75. I LOVE IT!!! That chair is ADORABLE!! And the Megaphone!!
Now, let’s take a look at the Mini Dolls:
The Mini Dolls are $25 and come with a book. I can’t BELIEVE I am about to say this, and it is the first time I’ve ever said it about AG, but I honestly think they look so cheapy. They remind me of the little Isabelle dolls they had in Happy Meals at McDonalds! And I still don’t think their faces cute. I think they’re slightly cuter than the old ones, but if I’m going by quality, I have to say that the old ones were better. 😕
Also, there were a few new books released!
Doll Art Studio is $24.95 and it looks so adorable!! I think this kit is officially on my wants list 😛
I also noticed this which is $9.99
And this which is $24.99.
So that’s all for the whole new release!! I’ll have to give this release a 9 out of 10 due to some things I didn’t like, such as outfits not being changed, cheapy mini dolls, etc.
However I LOVED this release and I hope you did, too! Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to hear from you! 😀
I have been very uncertain on how I feel towards the new BeForever line. But lately I have been dying for it to get here already!!!
We got an email from American Girl yesterday and it had this picture!! Okay, I just HAVE to buy Samantha’s and Rebecca’s new Meet Outfits!!! They’re SO pretty!!! But I also have to say that I’m SO sad and disappointed that Caroline and Kaya don’t have new outfits. Like that just looks so wrong- if you know what I mean 😛
And now for some exciting news!!! My mom and I are going to the AG store in LA for the BeForever Debut on Thursday!!!! I’m SOOOO EXCITED!!! I’ll be taking TONS of pictures, so you can look forward to that! 😀
How are you feeling about BeForever? Are you planning to go to the store for the Debut?
My friend Emma has a blog where she posts photostories and photoshoots of her dolls, but sadly, I am the only one who comments on her blog
Her photostories are really good and the photoshoots are beautiful! Emma is super nice and friendly and (for all you Frozen lovers) she is also obsessed with Frozen! Please head on over to her blog, “Wack-A-Doodle-Doos” and leave a comment. She would appreciate it SO much!
Here are a few pictures from her most recent posts:
Julie is so sweet to her sister in Congratulations Molly!

Find out what happens at Saige’s First Slumber Party!
Thank you in advance for checking out her blog
Hi girls! I had such a fun time yesterday at the AG place and spending time with my family! My mom and I left to go to the AG Place at 10:00 AM and got there at about 11:10 AM. We took our time and covered every inch of the place. It was so much fun!! So, let’s begin looking through the pictures!
Online, Isabelle’s Bar & Beam looks kinda big, but it’s actually pretty small! Which I guess it has to be, LOL! 😛
Isabelle’s Pajamas and her cat. I think Isabelle is so much cuter in person!
I love this outfit!! Pictures don’t it justice!
LOOVE THIS SET!! Why is it $64??? UGH! 😕 😛
That tutu is cute!
Pretty birthday display (I love the doll on the right!)
Look! It’s Annika!! She looks so pretty!! 😀
Okay, can I just say ADORBS?!?!
I LOVE this doll and outfit!!! 😀
This is just such an amazing display!! Can you see all the tiny Easter eggs??
I can NOT tell you how I excited (and shocked) I was to see the Western Riding Outfit there!! It’s not online anymore, but it was in the store!! YAY! 😀
Just look at how cute that is!
I love Isabelle’s Coral Sweater
That is such an adorable hairstyle! I should’ve studied it more 😕
Those two look like they’re having a lot fun
A cute classroom display
The other side has the Gala Party Scene! I need to get that someday 😉
I love Isabelle’s Studio! It is so cute! I was a bit disappointed when I saw that the dress form was solid and not squishy…
Julie’s Car is amazing! I think that the doors should open, though 😛
So pretty!! My mom said she’s gonna buy Julie, but I said, “No, you can’t! I’m gonna buy her someday!” LOL! 😛
I think this outfit is really cute!!
And so is this one!! I don’t like the headband, but everything else is adorable
I don’t really care for the colors of this outfit, but the detail is absolutely amazing!
I love Caroline (and I need that dress! 😛 )
Her hair looks so pretty!!!
This outfit is just beautiful!
Another ADORABLE Bitty picture! 😀
This set up is really cute!
I LOVE this set!!! I was dying over everything about it! It’s adorable!
I really love this doll! She is so cute
The new Rainy Day Outfit is so cute! I just really want that coat, but I do not want to pay $24 for it 😛
Here’s me standing in front of Kaya’s section
Kaya’s Deerskin Outfit. It is actually cuter in person, too. I have just never paid much attention to her which, yes, it’s pretty sad
I LOVE her horses and her saddle!!
Kaya is so pretty! 😀
Kaya’s Pow Wow Dress of today. She looks so pretty in blue! I also love her tepee
Trying to find which doll looks perfect! Yep! I bought Kaya!!! 😀
After looking through practically EVERY Kaya doll (No joke!) I finally found the perfect one 😀
I had put too much in my bag, so I had to take some things out. Here’s me trying to decide which outfit to get over the other!
I was trying to decide between the Western Riding Outfit and the Weekend Fun Outfit! It was SO hard to decide!! I had planned to buy the Weekend Fun, but when I saw the Western Riding, I wanted to buy that because I was so sad when it wasn’t available anymore! It was a super hard choice to make, but I finally went with the Western Riding Outfit
Finally, I was ready to check out 😀
I’m going to give you a list of what I bought as I haven’t taken pictures of everything yet. 😉
1. Kaya Doll and Book
2. Steps High- I had to order her because she was back ordered, but at least I got free shipping
3. Sparks Flying
4. Frosty Fair Isle Outfit
5. Western Riding Outfit
6. Purple Peacock PJ’s for Kaya 😉
And my mom and dad also gave me two AG outfits!!
1. The Cozy Sweater Outfit (SOOO EXCITED!!)
2. Saige’s Sweater Outfit (YAY!!)
I’m SO happy with all of my stuff! And here are a couple more pictures of me and Kaya:
I opened her in the car and just about died! She is absolutely beautiful and her hair is AMAZINGLY soft! No other doll has hair as soft as hers!
I love her so much!!! 😀
When we pulled into our driveway I put Kaya back in her box, but I decided to be silly and become an American Girl Doll myself! LOL! 😛
Okay, now you all have to see this beautiful cookie cake that my mom made me!!
Look how pretty it is!!! I did not know my mom was so good at cake decorating!! Thank you for making me such a pretty cake, mommy
I had such a great birthday!! My mom made french toast, hash browns, and sausage for dinner (my FAVORITE breakfast!), then we sat around a bit, played Apples to Apples, and hung out some more! It was SO much fun!
And I want to thank you ALL for the birthday wishes! You’re so amazing and I’m so lucky to have friends like you!
Look for another post coming later today! 😀
