AG New Releases
Have you all seen the brand new create your own section on the American Girl website? Now you can create your very own doll for $200, which, yes, is expensive, but AWESOME! XD You have the ability to choose the face mold, skin tone, eye color (your doll can even have 2 different eye colors!!), hair color, hair cut/style, and MORE! It’s seriously the greatest thing ever and I’ve made a ton of dolls (I’m dying, guys) so I thought it would be fun to share them with you! 🙂
Here’s the first one I made! SHE IS SO CUTE AGH!! XD
This is the newest one I made – I wanted to make one that looked like a princess which I think I succeeded. *heart eyes*
This one I made to look like my sister. It’s not totally accurate, but I think it resembles her enough 🙂
This is my mom – or rather the closest I could get it to looking like her. She actually has blonde and brown hair and gold eyes, but… THIS WORKS! XD
I LIKEY THIS ONE!! XD
OOH OOH! HER TOO!!! XD
This is Regina from Once Upon a Time 🙂
And this is Snow White – also from Once Upon a Time. I wish there was a lighter skin with redder lips… Hm… XD
This is Mary Margaret which is Snow White in our world XD
This is Emma Swan – also from Once Upon a Time! XD
AND AN ADORABLE IRISH GIRL!! XD (that hair, right?!)
I think this one is my least favorite, but she’s cute 🙂
I really like this one, toooo… :O XD
So that’s all I’ve made so far! I’m probably gonna go make some more right now while I watch Moana with my parents. I’m addicted, girls. I need more money so I can feel okay with spending $200 on a doll. O_O XD
Also, just wanna apologize for not posting the next part of Fate of the Unborn yet… I’ll try to get around to that soon. 😉
What do you think of the Create Your Own? Have you made a lot of dolls? Do you think you’ll buy one or have you already?
Hi everyone! The rain stopped so I was able to go outside and take some pictures today – YAY! 😀
When I first saw the leaked photos of this outfit, I thought it was weird and just blah. But when I saw a picture of Lea wearing it, well, I pretty much died and I knew I had to take it home with me on the 1st. The colors of the shirt look absolutely amazing up against her skin and hair color! This is probably my favorite outfit from her collection 🙂
And also, when I saw the picture of Lea wearing this outfit, I knew I had to get her ears pierced so I could put those dangles on her when she wore this outfit! They look amazing with this outfit and I kind of feel like it’s a must for her to wear these with this outfit XD
The shorts are the only thing I don’t like about this outfit. I’ve never really cared for the look of wearing a long sleeve with shorts and plus, these shorts are REALLY short. I wish AG would have made them a bit longer :/
And now, let us move on to the photoshoot!
Well, that’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this photoshoot and review 🙂
What’s your favorite outfit from Lea’s collection?
Happy New Year, everyone!!
As some of you may know, I went to Lea Clark’s debut today with Emma and we both had so much fun! Weeelll… As I’m sure you can tell by the title – I GOT LEA!!! But, I’m spelling it “Leia” because, well, okay, because it’s Star Wars-y 😀
I only have a little bit of time right now, so I can’t do a photostory or review with her just yet, but be on the watch for it! 🙂 Now, here is Leia!
I tried getting a clear picture of her eye color for you. I think in person it is slightly more green than in the picture 😉 Also, here you can see the shape of her eyebrows. I’m pretty sure that they’re new as they appear to be more arched.
Here is a full body shot! Isn’t she adorable?! If you’re wondering about the messenger bag and compass necklace, yes, they are included with the doll and book for $120 🙂 But, ahem, they are in a terrible spot. We were like- I thought she came with the bag and necklace! I’m so disappointed! And so my mom looked it up on the site (we were already in the car) and it said that it’s supposed to be included. So just as Emma’s mom was about to call AG to ask about it, my mom is like “Are you sure it’s not anywhere? Is it behind the book?” And Emma and I were like- “No, it is not behind the book.” So then Emma picked up the part the book is in and saw in back of that package, that the bag and necklace were right there… Hehe…. XD
Isn’t this such amazing hair?! :O
What are your thoughts on Lea Clark?
Okay, I took like a gazillion pictures at the store of like EVERYTHING, so this is gonna have to be split into two or three parts! Crazy, huh?! So this part I’ll be focusing on the Beforever Characters 🙂
Here’s the table with all the food. I didn’t eat any of it…. What is wrong with me?! I think it’s because I felt stressed (we got there like 10 minutes before 10), they were just about to have a drawing, and I had gum. So yeah… I really wanted a muffin, though! LOL!
So true! 😀
Here’s the drawing – you had a chance to win Maryellen’s TV or a Bitty Baby!
Here’s Maryellen’s display!!! YAY!!
I love her collection SO much!! Like seriously – I want a lot of it! LOL
Doesn’t that spot look so empty?? I feel like there should be more there than just Maryellen herself!
Here’s her diner!! AAAHH!!!! It’s SO amazing!!! I can’t tell you how much I love it. I don’t care how much it is, I will buy this someday! 😀
Here’s my Maryellen visiting Grace’s La Patisserie 🙂
I just now realized that those are the only Maryellen photos I took…. What is wrong with me?! Ugh!
Oh! LOL! Here’s another picture of her diner! Isn’t it amazing??? 😀
Here’s Julie’s display 🙂
I love this coat so much, like oh my gosh! :O
I also really love this dress! It’s so cute!
What do you think of her new pajamas? I personally like her old ones better, but I think the new ones are still cute 🙂
Samantha’s Gazebo…. Aaaahh! So pretty!!!
The coat… :O I have a thing for coats, jackets, vests, pretty much anything that you wear over something LOL!
Oh, gosh, AG!! Why do you have so many amazingly huge furniture pieces that I want???
Samantha’s display is so full!! She has so much stuff!! (why not make Josefina’s collection a little bigger….)
Kit has a lot of cute stuff in her collection! I love the desk, the typewriter, her outfits – I really should get some of her outfits…
Like this one!! OMGOSH isn’t it the cutest?! 😀
*Sigh* Poor Josefina. Her collection is so small. I feel like she’s so neglected…. 🙁
Yay! Rebecca!! 😀
This dress is so amazing!
Alright, Addy and Josefina really need some more attention! Their collections are so small compared to the others! 🙁
Well, that ends this part! I’m sorry I didn’t get more pictures of Maryellen’s collection… Maybe I was too into looking at her stuff that I just forgot to take pics or something. Sorry about that 😕 Ummm…. I just realized that I have no pictures of Kaya or her collection…. I don’t even remember seeing her there! I must have walked passed it or something… Hmmm….
Anyways, it was a really fun day and it was so great to meet Mya, Amelia, and Rebekah! 😀
Look for part 2 of “Masquerade” coming later today and I will post the next part of the store photos tomorrow! Bye for now!
I was having a heart-attack last night (not literal, I was just SUPER excited)!!! My dad was asleep in the other room and I was trying SO hard not to yell and scream over everything!! LOL! 😛
***Note: Picture credit goes to American Girl***
Okay, so are you all ready to see this awesome release?! Good! Let’s get started! 😀
Rebecca’s Seashore Set $48- I’m sorry, but I don’t really like this. It looks way too modern to me, and those boots literally look like boots that girls wear today. I will say that the chair is cute, though 🙂
Alrighty, ready to move into MAG? Me too!!
Shimmer & Lace Party Dress $30- This is SO CUTE!! I love the color and how lacy it is! 😀
Pretty Pink Tutu Set $28- Again, it’s cute, but I won’t be buying either of them 🙂 You can also buy both of them in a set together for $62 😉
Sunshine Gardening Bench Set $68- This is adorable!! It made me realize that I don’t have a doll that likes gardening yet! Hmm…. I wonder what doll I want could fit that role…. 😛
Now onto the Bitty Babies!
Now for books!
Doll Pets $24.99- THIS LOOKS ADORABLE!! I love this!! 😀
Alright, so that was the entire release (except for the girl’s sized clothes 😉 )!! I am VERY happy with this release!! And A LOT of new items have gone on my wishlist!! I think my favorite item in this release is Samantha’s Gazebo. I can not get over how amazing that is! 😀
What are your thoughts on the release? What was your favorite new item?
P.S. SO sad that Josefina got NOTHING new 🙁
– And the other way! We got there at a good time! It was so neat to be around so many doll lovers and see girls with their dolls. I like never see that anywhere, so that was just really neat to see! 🙂
Me and Emma! YAY! Unfortunately, we can’t post pictures with Ginger Spice, because she wants to remain a secret identity 😉 As you can see, Emma is much taller than I am, even though I’m older LOL! XD 😛
Here’s me trying to get a Grace doll LOL! That guy was putting some more Grace dolls in place, and when he noticed I wanted one, he handed one to me, and it was perfect!! That was literally the fastest experience of “choosing” a doll EVER!!
Me with Grace, and Emma digging through the others, trying to find the right one 🙂
We have our DOLLIES!!! LOL!
Here’s a side view of Grace in her City Outfit. I love how they styled her hair!!!
Oh. My. Goodness. This is like the most amazing thing EVER!!! The quality of her bakery is incredible!! It’s made of wood and the doors open and close nicely. There are so many adorable accessories that come with it (AG says it comes with over 60 accessories!!), and I love the refrigerator and oven and all the adorable foods!! I know practically everyone is saying that it’s way overpriced, but I really have to disagree. First of all, yes, it is AG, and AG has high prices- that’s totally normal, so I’m not really surprised by the price. Second, it’s made of wood- that adds to the price. Third, it has over 60 accessories!! And fourth, the detail on everything is AMAZING! It all looks so realistic!! So, yes, it is a high price, but honestly, if I had $500 to spare, I would buy it! I think it’s definitely worth the price! You don’t have to agree and it’s okay to disagree, cause everyone has their opinions, but I just wanted to get my opinion out there 🙂
Emma taking a picture LOL!
The cabinet is so adorable!!
The Baking Accessories are SO CUTE!! I LOVE the mixer and the tablet!! 😀
This outfit is so adorable!! It’s weird, because on every picture AG has (that I’ve seen) the cupcakes on the shirt are upside down, but they actually aren’t! I really don’t understand why their pictures are like that…
Me and Emma with the photo op! I think it’s the cutest little set up! 🙂
I really like her beret! If I continue to want one for my dolls, I’ll probably crochet one 🙂
I don’t really care for this outfit, but I’m sure a lot of girls do. I just love the hairstyle they did on her with that outfit!! Her hair looks so poofy! Though you can’t tell in this picture LOL 😛
Baking Outfit!! I just adore that apron! 😀
Here’s the full display 🙂
I am so in love with this outfit!! Pink looks SO good on her!! 😀
I love her Travel Coat!! I’m so happy I was able to get this! And also, gotta love the hairstyle 😛
Her pajamas are so stinkin’ cute!! And again, love the hairstyle!! LOLOL! Okay, I’ll stop saying that XD
I love this shot!! I had my mom taking pictures for me so that I could look around more easily, and she literally read my mind, cause right when I saw this display, I wanted the exact shot! 😀
Would you just die over this window display with me? I literally could have just stood and drooled over it all day! 😛 This is the best window display I have ever seen!!!
Then it was time to go home! And of course, I went back to Emma’s house afterwards so that we could play with our new dolls! What a fun day!!!! 😀
Did you go to the GOTY debut? Do you plan on getting Grace?
Oh, my goodness! It was SO much fun to introduce you to Grace in my photostory!! I hope you all enjoyed seeing her that way! 😀
Now, it is time for a photoshoot!! 😀
Yesterday, was SO much fun!! I just have to tell you the story of my getting Grace! 🙂
I have always wanted to go to a GOTY debut, and I had already seen tons of leaked pictures of Grace and her collection, I was just so in love with her that I knew she would be perfect for me to go to her debut! My mom also really wanted to take me, and we talked about would I not buy Grace that day and wait until my birthday, or would I buy her then? I had most of the money, so we decided that this would be my birthday trip and she would be my birthday doll 🙂 We also invited Emma and Ginger Spice, but neither one of them could come. So yesterday morning, when me and my mom were walking to our car, she walked past the car and said, “Let’s go this way.” In my head I’m like, “What is she doing?” But I followed and was greeted by Emma along with Ginger Spice!! Emma literally (well, okay not literally, but I was shaking from excitement!) almost gave me a heart attack!! She yelled, “JACLYNN!!!” And almost tackled me with a huge hug! They surprised me so good, I couldn’t even believe it! So yes, we had a TON of fun yesterday and I will be posting lots of pictures very soon! 😀
I have also renamed Grace, because I just didn’t like that name for her. 😉 So what did I name her?
I named her Riven-Delle!! She is named after a place in Lord of The Rings, called Rivendell, but I changed the spelling to make it look more like a name. Do you like the edit I did? 🙂
Okay, so enough of my rambling. On with the photoshoot! 😀
Riven-Delle has freckles that go all the way across her nose!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! Her eyes are a beautiful shade of blue and she has feathered eyebrows, which are thicker than normal. Her cheeks are also more rosy than others 🙂
Look at all of the beautiful colors in her hair!!! Yes, all of these pictures are completely natural. No edits or filters! 🙂
I’m sure you can also see that I got her Travel Coat! It’s so adorable and I’m super happy with it! 😀
The right three buttons on the coat, actually button up, and it velcros where the bow is 🙂
These sweet grey boots are from her Meet Outfit. They’re very soft and are SUPER easy to slip on and off! Yep, no velcro, buttons, or zippers at all on these boots!
I love how her hair looks in this picture!
Wow, she is so photogenic!
Okay, so before I get started with this photostory I just have to say that I am DYING OVER GRACE!!! She’s GORGEOUS!! I’m SO excited to get her on my birthday!! 😀
Now, onto the photostory!
“Hi!” The customer, who was named Rose, replied.
Rose stepped out of the doorway and just stood for a minute.
“Can I help you find anything today?” The employee asked. “Oh, no, thank you. I’m just waiting for a friend.” Rose replied. After waiting a while longer she finally saw her friend step into the store.
“Hi, Rose!” Melody greeted.
“I’m sorry I’m a little late, but there was a ton of traffic on the way here.” Melody explained. “Oh, it’s okay! I had a little traffic, too.” Rose said with a smile.
“I seriously love your coat! Where did you get it?” Rose asked as she pointed to Melody’s coat.
Melody went through some capris. “Hmm… These are pretty cute.” Melody said thoughtfully.
“What do you think of this blazer, Melody?” Rose asked with a super cute striped blazer in her hand.
“Oooh! I love it! That would look so great on you!” Melody exclaimed.
“Yeah, you should definitely get it!” Melody said. “Hmm. Yeah, I think I will!” Rose said with a smile.
Rose wandered over to the shirt section.
Melody lifted up an adorable sweater. It was super soft and had a fair isle print on it. “Oh, my goodness! This is so me!” Melody exclaimed. She looked over the shirt to check if there were any snags or stains. “Okay, I’m getting it!” She said excitedly.
Melody took back her things and said with a giggle, “And I didn’t want to spend a lot of money today!”
After looking around the store some more, they were finally ready to check out.
“Did you want the hanger for this?” The lady at the register asked.
Soon it was Melody’s turn, so she plopped all of her clothes on the counter.
When Melody was done, she walked over to Rose. “So, how much-” Rose began, but Melody stopped her. “Don’t ask!” She said with a laugh, and Rose laughed, too. “Do you wanna get some lunch?” Rose asked. “Sure!” Melody replied.
So they walked out of the store and went down the street to eat at The Cheesecake Factory 🙂
Do your dolls like shopping?
A photoshoot will be coming later today!! 😀
P.S. Please keep checking back at Wack-A-Doodle-Dolls! She is posting at every hour today! 🙂
AAAAH!! Oh, my gosh!!!! Who wants to see a picture of one Grace Thomas’ outfits?! If you don’t please DO NOT look below!
Okay, yes, it is a small picture, but if you go to americangirl.com and search “grace” her Travel Outfit will pop up! I am absolutely LOVING HER OUTFIT!!!!! I can’t wait to buy her in February!!! 😀
THUMBS UP AG!!!!
What do you think of her outfit?
P.S. Click on the picture and then zoom in to see it better!
So how many of you went to the computer right away when you got up in the morning on the winter release date? I’m sure I wasn’t the only one! I was very pleased with this release and a LOT of the new items have made it to my AG wishlist!! 😀
Now, let’s take a look at the items!
Fair Isle PJ Collection is $64 or you can buy the doll version for $24 or the girl’s size for $40. I absolutely LOVE these PJ’s!! They are so cute and are now on my wishlist 😀
“Hit the Slopes” Collection is $76 (you can buy just the outfit for $34 or the Skis and Helmet for $42) and at first I wasn’t sure what I thought of this outfit, but it has grown on me! I really love that jacket 🙂
Sparkly Skating Set is $44…. A little on the expensive side 😛 I actually don’t like this outfit. The only thing I like are the ice skates 🙂
Pretty Pink Riding Outfit & Helmet is $66 (buy just the outfit for $42) I LOVE THIS!!! I really want this!! The pants and the coat and the boots- AAAHH! SO CUTE!! 😀
Western Plaid Outfit & Hat is $54 (Buy just the outfit for $30) and again- I LOVE IT!!! One of my favorite color combos is pink and brown!! I seriously love this outfit!! 😀
Western Plaid Dress & Belt for Girls is $54 and I think it’s really cute, but too short. 😉
Prancing Horse & Saddle Set is $136 (buy the horse for $98 or the Saddle and Award Set for $38) and OMGOSH I LOVE this horse!!! I’ve already decided that my dolls need a male horse and that they will name him Brego after a horse in LOTR, LOL 😛
Winter White Outfit is $38, when I first saw this I thought “Oh, that’s cute!” but when I looked at it more I was like “Oh. Not really.” I’ve never really liked how tights look under shorts and I really don’t think that they should’ve used shorts in this outfit… I’d say the only things I like about this outfit are the vest and the boots. Those boots are just seriously to die for! 😛
Winter White Outfit for Girls $142. I don’t really think much about this outfit 😉
Holiday Accessories are $32 and really cute! I love the little shrug and the ornament- it’s just all really cute! I wouldn’t spend over $30 on this set, though 😛
Happy Holiday Dress is $36 and I’m DYING over its beautiful-ness!!! I love the style of it and how sparkly it is and how pretty it looks on MAG #61!!!! It would be so fun to get this for her on Christmas *wink wink at my mom* LOL 😀
Happy Holiday Outfit for Girls is $132 and while it is very pretty, and I would probably wear it, it is also too short. 😕
Silver Shimmer Dress is $36 and while it looks pretty, it actually doesn’t seem all that great to me. The shape is a little weird and I think the ruffles start too high. 😉
Silver Shimmer Outfit for Girls is $80- see what I mean about the shape? It just looks way too square, huh? 😛
Sparkly Black Flats are $14 and they are really cute! They would go great with a lot of outfits! 🙂
Now let’s move on to the Bitty stuff!
Teal Tidings Dress is $28 and pretty cute. I’m not so sure what I think about that color right now… Maybe it’s just that color on that doll that I don’t like 😉
Teal Tidings Dress for Girls is $54 and just like the doll version- it’s cute 🙂
Imagine & Play Tent is $195 and SO adorable!! If this was around when I was little, I would’ve loved this!
Little Leopard Snowsuit is $28 and SO CUTE!! The baby looks so cute and cuddly, doesn’t she?? 😀
Frosty Ice-Skating Outfit is $36 and not really all that great. I really don’t like that the ice skates are felt. That looks really cheesy, AG 😕
Bitty’s Bib & Sippy is $12 and pretty cute. I think the reason I’m not so fond of it is because I already have a lot of stuff like this for my baby dolls and this just doesn’t scream “ADORABLE” to me LOL 😛
Tiny Toile Set is $40 and again, it’s pretty cute. I think I’d like it better with a headband instead of a hat 🙂
Bitty’s Bunny Sleeper is $18, I think it’s really cute! 🙂
Bitty’s Bunny Bodysuits are $18. I think these are my favorite of the new Bitty Baby stuff! They’re just so basic and practical for babies, so I guess that’s why I like them so much 🙂
Bitty’s Purple Dragon is $30. It’s really cute and makes me think of an old PBS Kids show I used to watch called Dragon Tales!
Now for the Bitty Twins new stuff!
Ballerina Nightgown is $34 and SO ADORABLE!! Doesn’t Janie look so cute in that?! And I love the snow globe, too!!
Ballerina Nightgown for Girls is $38. I can totally see myself wearing this when I was little! 🙂
Toy Soldier PJ’s are $34 and SO CUTE!! Jeremy looks so adorable!! Like a little prince!! And I love that nutcracker! It would look so cute on my doll’s mantle! Oh, my gosh! These would be so cute on Elijah! Okay, I need these now 😀
Pretty City Carriage and Prancing Horse $373 and I am needing money so badly right now!!! THAT CARRIAGE IS BEAUTIFUL!! Can you just imagine all the photostories this would be great for?! And just SO fun for play, too!! I LOVE the bells and that it comes with a blanket to put over the dolls while they’re taking a ride!! And that the top goes up and down!! Oh, my goodness, girls, I’m dying! How on earth am I going to save up almost $400?! :O There’s no way I can do that, considering how bad I am at saving money. But, yeah, this is my absolute favorite from the release!! 😀
Again, I think this was a really good release! All of my absolute favorites were the new horse related items 🙂
What did you think of this release? Anything new added to your wishlist?
