American Girl Live, Christmas Collection, and Contemporary Characters Retiring!

Hey marshmallows!

Oops, I haven’t been posting for a while! I’ve got some videos, surprises (including The Big Surprise) and new posts in the works, so keep a look out for those! Anyways, I’ve got some exciting news for you.

Today, I was on the American Girl website, and I noticed something once I scrolled to the bottom:

American Girl Live? Apparently, they’re going to do musicals of the dolls’ stories. Let’s head over to the AG Live Tickets website.

*gets distracted by Play games*

*comes back*

Oh yeah, I’m writing a post!

Anyways, in this video, several girls in different locations turn around and smile for some reason. A cheesy lady narrates about how awesome American Girl Live is. Then, they grab their dolls and smile in a theater, where they apparently are watching American Girl Live.2 Despite the weird add, I think this is a unique idea. The earliest show is on December 13, but they haven’t done very much advertising (besides maybe to awards members) – it took me 15 whole minutes of browsing the website before I came across this tiny logo. That’s it for the AG Live – now onto some of the Christmas releases!

And yes, I am aware they released these at the beginning of October. I’m a professional procrastinator.FVK48_Holiday_Dreams_Pajamas_18inch_Dolls_1

Holiday Dreams Pajamas for 18-inch Dolls – $24

The outfit’s colors scream Christmas duh, Emmie, they’re red, green, and blue and go together nicely. The slippers are cute and fuzzy, and the top looks comfy. There’s nothing really that special about these PJs, but I think they’re worth the price. There are also little girls, girls, and women’s versions of this outfit. I think it’s random for them to suddenly sell women’s sizes in this outfit, but at least they are expanding their size range.

Tis the Season Party Dress for 18-inch Dolls – $36

This outfit is super cute! I love the velvety material and the rhinestone pattern. The shoes are gorgeous! I love how they wrap around the ankles/shins with ribbons. The purse is really cute too. The only problem is the headband – I feel like the rhinestones might come off easily.FVK40_Let_It_Snow_Outfit_18inch_Dolls_1

Winter Sparkles Outfit for 18-inch Dolls – $36

This outfit is really cute, but the shawl kind of looks like it’s choking the doll. I think it would look a lot better without the indistinct designs and a furry sweater instead of the shawl. The leggings and shoes are adorable and have an awesome mix and match opportunities. Again, in the headband, I could do without the flower mandala cross snowflake designs.FVK85_Winter_Sparkles_Outfit_18inch_Dolls_1.jpeg

Winter Sparkles Outfit for 18-inch Dolls – $36

I think this outfit is really cute! I love the trendy, blush/purple-pink colors. The beanie is very mix-and-matchable. I love the trench coat style. The only problem is that it’s fuzzy, so it looks like a bathrobe. But other than that, I love this outfit!06BUN35_Mix_and_Match_for_Dolls_1_Tank_Jacket_Silver_Skirt_Flats_FRJ60_FRK93_FRK87_FRK95_1.jpeg

City Sights Jacket & Silver Starlight Skirt Outfit for 18-inch Dolls – $10.00

(Since there are so many of these mix-and-match items, I’m only going to be reviewing this one.) I really like all the shimmery details on the skirt and the shoes, and the jacket is a nice color. The only thing wrong with this outfit is the shirt. It doesn’t match the rest of the outfit at all! And why is it a tank top? It’s supposed to be the winter release. Overall, this outfit is actually pretty cheap, so that’s nice. I just wish the shirt was black.FVK06_Care_and_Keeping_of_Your_Skin_and_Nails_1.jpeg

The Skin & Nails Book – $9.99

I’ve actually read this book, and it’s really good! I love all the tips they give you, and since I started washing my face the way they recommend it, my skin has been a bit clearer! (I’ve only been washing it for two days, though. 🙂

And that’s it for the reviews! I didn’t want this post to be super long, so I didn’t include all the items they released this winter.

Bye, Contemporary Characters!Untitled design (7)

On American Girl’s website, several months ago they posted a notice that Tenney and Logan were retiring, but then it went away. (Read more about that on Jewel’s post!)

It returned, but all the Contemporary Characters are going to be gone by the end of the year! I just wish they would’ve made these awesome, cute dolls (I say cute wayyyy too much) GOTYs instead of making a separate line that would come and go within a year.

I’m sad to see Z, Tenney, and Logan go, but I won’t really miss Gabby. She hasn’t sold well at all, and her display is a single cube with nothing but her doll and a few outfits in the old packaging.Untitled design (7) What do you think about the new releases? AG Live? Retiring dolls? This post being up so late everyone already knows what I shared? 🙂

Expect to see a Z Crew News, customization, and AGSM posts in the future! I might be going on a hiatus for NaNo, but I’ll see if I can finish my outline in time.Signoff

  1. Nice! I love the blush trend + that outfit is really cute! The American Girl Live is actual coming to a local theater in my town – but I’m not going to go. Actually, my little sister and grandma might be going – but I’m not sure. XD
