A Change In Plans

Okay, so you know how I shared my AG Shopping List with you? And how I said I was going to buy Arwen (MAG light skin, layered black-brown hair, brown eyes) because she looked like Jess and it would be cheaper to buy her than a Jess in good condition? Well, today my mom was on the computer (in an AG selling group on Facebook) and she told me that a lady had Jess’s Pajamas and her Meet Outfit (without shoes) for $43 shipped. I told my mom to write “SOLD” on the post and when my mom was messaging the lady she asked if we were interested in buying Jess. She offered the two outfits, Jess’s book, and Jess for $120 shipped!! I’m sure you can imagine my confusion and excitement! I didn’t know what to do! Buy Jess or Arwen. Jess also was given bangs, so that was the only thing preventing me from purchasing her. Then finally I said, “Sold!”

jess lot

I can’t believe I’m getting her!!! It was such a good deal and I’m VERY excited!!


Doesn’t she look so pretty?! Aside from the haircut she seems to be in excellent used condition!! YAY!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

What doll do you want to get next?

  • That’s awesome! I can’t believe you actually got her! Congrats!
    Where are her bangs? I didn’t see them in the pics.
    So are you going to keep her name Jess, or are you going to name her Arwen?
    Gosh, there are SO many dolls I want right now:
    This MAG:
    And this MAG:

    • Thank you SO much!! I know, I can’t either! ๐Ÿ˜€
      The bangs are tucked into the braid on the left. I will take pictures of it when I get her. She should get here quickly, though because she’s shipping tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m going to keep her name Jess. I don’t like to change the names of the actual dolls ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›
      Your links didn’t lead to separate MAG’s only to the choose your MAG page ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Yes! Congrats to you, Jaclynn! I’m very happy for you! Jess is ADORABLE! The next doll after Rebecca and Samantha is Cecile, although if she’s retiring soon I’ll get her now. But, if not, I’d either get Cece or Caroline. Hey, did I tell you MYAG #33 is on my list? I’d name her Brigitta Anna. Guess the middle name? FROZEN! Brigitta would be Anna when I act out Frozen! Plus, when I get Caroline, her middle name will be Elsa. Thanks, Jaclynn, for that idea of Caroline=Elsa.

  • Congratulations! It is so exciting to find a good deal on a doll ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so happy for you! I hope your dolls have fun with their new sister! PS: today I found the girl size top to the Honey Puppy PJs in my size! It was only $5 so now I just need to get the doll ones!

    • Thank you so much! I hope they do, too! ๐Ÿ™‚
      That’s great!! I love the Honey Puppy PJ’s!! I have them for Kanani and in my size, too! They are super soft and comfy! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • That’s so cool! How many GOTYs will you have when you get her? I am assuming now you aren’t going to get Arwen? ๐Ÿ˜‰
    The dolls that I’d like to have are Caroline, and this My AG:
    Also, I really like Saige and these My AGs:
    There are so many to choose from! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Thank you!! I’ll have three, Saige, Kanani, and Jess ๐Ÿ™‚
      No, I won’t be buying her now. I did think, “Oh, they could be twins!” But then I was like, “No, if I have enough money for another doll, I’d probably get the first MAG I did for What Would You Name Her.” Maybe… LOL! ๐Ÿ˜›
      Oh, wow! You want a lot, too! Those are all really great choices! The first MAG you’d name Charlotte, right?

      • That’s cool!
        Yeah, if I were you, I wouldn’t. The doll for the first MAG you did for What Would You Name Her is cute, and she is pretty unique, in my opinion. ๐Ÿ™‚
        Yes, I am pretty sure I’d name her Charlotte. I love her so much!! ๐Ÿ˜€

        • Yes, she’s very unique! I really like her ๐Ÿ™‚
          Okay, I thought so! Hehe! I hope you get her someday! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • My sister likes her a lot, too, I think. Actually, I think she looks a bit like Felicity. Except for their hair colors are different shades of red.
            Thanks! I hope I get her sometime, too. ๐Ÿ˜€ She is really unique, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
            ~Christian Homeschooler
            P.S. I would appreciate your prayers; I am sick. ๐Ÿ˜›

          • Oh, no! I hope you’re feeling better! I will definitely pray for you! ๐Ÿ™

    • I also really like the first MAG that you had. Charlotte is a perfect name for her!

  • Oh, I forgot! I also like Ivy a lot. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • That’s wonderful! I’m so happy for or you ๐Ÿ™‚ . The next doll I want will be Ivy.

  • That is so awesome!!! I am hoping I can find a deal like that for Kanani (Still my dream doll! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I cut my Sammy’s bangs, and you can’t really tell (you’ve seen pics, and you can’t tell, right??) I hope that when they gave Jess bangs I hope they did a good job! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Is she GOTY 2006 or 07?? Gee,I didn’t even have any AG dolls when she was GOTY! But I really wanted Felicity then! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Thank you so much! Yes, Kanani is very pretty! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Oh, I don’t remember noticing that her bangs were shorter, so I guess I can’t tell! LOL! ๐Ÿ˜›
      She was the GOTY 2006 and retired in 2007 ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I didn’t either! I got Felicity in 2008 for my first doll. Was Lissie your first doll?

      • You’re Welcome!! ๐Ÿ™‚
        Haha, well that’s good! ๐Ÿ˜€
        Okay, I wasn’t sure exactly what year!
        Samantha was my first doll, a friend of my family’s had about 5-6 dolls, and she knew that I didn’t have one, so one christmas she surprised me by giving me Sammy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Then my sis gave me Kirsten for safe keeping, and in 2012 I was trying to decide between Mckenna or buying Lissie off ebay, and I found Lissie for around $70! Now if I can only find Elizabeth for that price! haha! ๐Ÿ˜€


  • Wow! So cute!

  • Good for you! That is a great deal! Will you be getting a doll when we go to the AG store? Probably not?

    • Thanks, Emma!! Hmmm… I’m still trying to figure that out, actually. It depends on how much money I have, LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

  • You can barely tell her hair was cut in those pictures. She looks great! Congratulations on the new member to your family.
    I’m not actively searching for a new doll, but if I did I’d like one of the Hearts4Hearts girls. Either Mosi or Tipi.

  • Cool!:) I think Jess would look really cute with bangs, and it’s great if they can be hidden when she’s got braids, if you don’t like them.:)

  • Congratulations on your find!!!!
    I can imagine how excited you must be!!! I found my doll on eBay for $70 including shipping. I was sooooo excited for her to come. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I have a question for you: My friend is thinking about getting another doll. She really wants a dark skinned one but then she wants one with curly hair. What doll would you recommend?

  • OH MY GOODNESS! I’ve always wanted Jess….*jealousy starts bubbling up inside me* LOL just kidding!!! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!! I’ve always wanted Jess…she has always been my favorite girl of the year. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats!

    ~Lydia~ <3

  • I have been thinking about getting either Saige or Kenley ( the same as Hope’s doll). I don’t know if I want to though. My mom put freckles on Felicity with a thin-point Sharpie, so I probably won’t get Saige. I already have 12 dolls, so I might not get Kenley, either. Her hair seems like it might be hard and time consuming to deal with. I would probably not name her Kenley either, maybe Kennedi or Makenzie.


  • Hey can some of you girls go to this blog, she never has any comments on it. http://jackieandyou.wordpress.com/

  • That’s an awesome buy, Jaclynn!

    Yesterday Sam’s leg came off! o_o Yipe! I know how to fix her, but I’m kinda scared about it and don’t have the parts. In the meantime, do any of you girls have suggestions for good websites I should look at? thanks!

    • I love delightful world of dolls, from echo with love, dolly dorm diaries, the guys and gals of chestnut street, doll diaries, never grow up, this one, toy box philosopher, american girl northwest, the one that jaclynn recommended a couple posts back, fun with ag fan, madness and fun, madness and fun with the dolls, and astrids frozen secret. I also have tons more, but I can’t remember them right now.

  • Wow! What an awesome find! That was definitely a smart move on your part to not pass up that deal and wait on getting a MAG!

  • Aww… She’s adorable! Love the outfits! Great deal! ~Marble

  • I’m going to get “arwen” because I really like Jess and can’t get her for the same reasons as u couldn’t. But that’s pretty cool!

  • You do not want to know all the dolls I want. Kaya, Rebecca, Ruthie, kit, josefina, Cecile, Isabelle, #49 and tons of others.

  • Oh and Jaclynn, are you going to get a doll when you go to the AGP in May? If so, what one would you get? A different MAG?

  • Sorry to bother you again Jaclynn, but I need a little bit of advice.
    So I’m going up to the AGP in August/September and I decided to look at the dolls that I want and eliminate (I generally don’t like to do that, but I was bored, so I decided to do it ๐Ÿ˜› ), and I have it down to four dolls, one HC and three MAGs. One of the MAGs I completely forgot about, and that I have loved for a long time is this one:
    I think she’s SOOOO cute, and would fit right in to my doll family, but one problem. She looks a lot like Julie. I thought maybe I could make them twins, but everything that I’ve played, it wouldn’t make sense. I could make them long-lost twins, like they were separated at birth, but I’m not sure I like that idea, it sounds weird.
    And I am scolding myself currently for worrying about something that is four months and eight days away, but any advice would be appreciated!

    • Oh, my!! They are practically the same! That’s probably why you like her so much ๐Ÿ™‚
      Well, I think that if you’re going to spend over $100 on a doll, I would get one that doesn’t look so similar to your other dolls. But it is your choice, so if you want to buy that doll really bad, then maybe you should get her. I think the separated at birth story could work, but it’s also kinda sad. And they don’t have to be twins, they could just be sisters, but like I said, it’s up to you ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope you figure out what you wanna do soon! And don’t scold yourself, I try to figure out what dolls I want all the time ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›
      Also, if you’d like help thinking up a story for Julie and the MAG, I’d be happy to help! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I know, it’s depressing! The pressures of loving dolls that look like your other dolls! Probably… ๐Ÿ˜›
        Yeah, it would be sad, I don’t think I want to do that, it sounds like a Parent Trap thing. That’s true, since they technically would be sisters. I’ll definitely need to think it over more, and maybe check her reviews, before I make any decisions ๐Ÿ˜€
        Me too, you waste alot of energy when it comes to stressing over dolls ๐Ÿ˜›
        Thanks for your help, I’ll definitely tell you if I need help! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I know this is a question for jaclynn, but I had the same problem and I was comparing their differences and stuff and the mag has short golden blonde hair, josefina mold and dark brown eyes. Julie has light brown eyes, long platinum blond hair, and josefina mold. I just decided to get them both and have them be cousins. I think they look similar enough to be related, but not enough to be identical twins because of hair and eye differences.

    • Samantha (my newest family member) looks a lot like Emily Jane, a MAG with brown hair, brown eyes and bangs (I couldn’t find her on the website). I enjoy pretending that they are friends but love to “switch places”. You might have fun playing like that!

  • jaclynn, i need a bit of advice. i have three dolls, and i love them. i would like another, except when i foot my most recent doll, i kinda felt guilty because i wasn’t really playing with her as much as the others. i am thinking of going to the AGP in may for my bday, and i don’t know if i should get another doll or just buy lots fun stuff. can you help?

    • oh, wait, i mean “got” not “foot. don’t know how that happened! :p

    • Ah, I see. Well, here’s my opinion:
      Maybe, since you’re still not playing with your newest doll as much, you should work on giving her more attention before you buy another doll. Then you could just buy a bunch of super fun stuff when you go for your birthday. But if there is a doll you really want, then you could buy her and work on playing with all of your dolls equally. Of course, there is always going to be a doll that gets more attention than others, but you can still try to give them all an equal amount of attention and affection ๐Ÿ™‚
      And also, don’t buy a doll, just to buy it, make sure you absolutely want it and that it’s calling out to you ๐Ÿ˜‰
      If you need help finding what to do with your dolls, perhaps my Doll Love and Care Chart will help you:

      I hope this helps you! Let me know if there is anything else you need! I’m happy to help ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I’m just wondering, what theme do you use on WordPress?

    Abigail โ™ฅ

    • I actually don’t use a theme. We created my website through a program called Artisteer 4 ๐Ÿ™‚

  • YAY, Congratulations!!!! Jess is so cute. Don’t take anymore pictures of her and show us, because then I’ll want her!! AHHH!! AG, MY WALLET CAN’T KEEP UP! XD jk.

  • Thanks Jaclynn, for praying. I am mostly over my cold. Just a cough that take a while to go away. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • I would love to get her: http://m.americangirl.com/mt/store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1678/uid/86 , her: http://m.americangirl.com/mt/store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1690/uid/86 , and her: http://m.americangirl.com/mt/store.americangirl.com/agshop/html/set/id/1685/uid/86 . Buying ALL of these dolls would leave me broke! $330 is a LOT of money for some dolls, though! Love everyone’s choices for dolls! ~Marble

    • Those are all great choices! And yeah, that is a lot money, but they aren’t just dolls. They’re friends and family ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You know what, Jaclynn? You’re right! I treat my dolls like my own children, and love them so dearly. That being said, I will always love my dolls, no matter how much they cost! Thank you! ~Marble
