AG, We Want You Back.

Do you know what a breakup feels like?

I don’t.

But I’m starting to get an idea.

So many of us in the AGBC are “breaking up” with American Girl.

AG is trying so, so hard to make their products more “modernized”.

And I really, truly, hate it.

I do.

Here’s a list of things they are changing:

-sewn on underwear

-squishy vinyl

-selling them at Toys R Us, Kohls, etc.

-awful packaging

-new dolls that don’t even look like they’re from AG.

So, AG, you caused this breakup. And if you want us back, make your company go back to how it was. Because right now, I’m not an American Girl Fan.

In fact, I would’ve stopped loving them a long time ago, if it wasn’t for buying Brooke. I’d wanted her for so long that I just couldn’t resist, so… I bought her, and that revived my interest in AG. But now it’s dying again. I have zero motivation to play with my dolls, and I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting old or whatever, but I know that I don’t want to be a fan of them right now.

To be honest, this started when I saw the new mini dolls. They. Are. Creepy. And it hasn’t gotten better.

And if you’re thinking, “Maybe it’s for the best, maybe some people will like the changes they’re making…”

Stop.

Just stop.

And think it over.

Because, if YOU picked up an AG catalog for the very first time TODAY, and you saw all these dolls with curved hands and squishy vinyl and sewn-on undies, would you be first in line to buy one? Or would you not even be in line at all?

Exactly.

Name The DOLL-RESULTS+My Opinions on New AG Releases

Are you ready to find out what name won for this doll? Keep scrolling…

SARAH!

I really think it suits her. 🙂 And I didn’t get many people to participate in this game, but there’s always next time! NOW for the “My thoughts” part of this post:

 SPRINKLES

Rainbow Sprinkles outfit-$30

I think that while this is really cute, (those SHOES!) it looks a lot like Saige’s tunic. It doesn’t help that the doll modeling it looks like Saige, either. But I like that it comes with a hair tie!

MINTY DRESS THINGY.jpeg

Spring Breeze Dress set- $32

Sorry it’s so small! But this dress is SUPER adorable! 🙂 I don’t think the price is bad at all- for $32 dollars,  you can get the dress, leggings, headband, and shoes. The dress looks very well-made. I might get this!

TENNIS

Tennis Ace Outfit-$34

Hmm. I don’t know. I don’t play tennis, so I’m not crazy about this outfit, but it is cute. It looks great on #24!

ICE CREAM!!

Ice Cream Cart-$85

Aaagh small pictures… :/ anyways. I love this cart! It has a lot of play value and comes with over 30 adorable pieces! I wonder if the wheels really move…hehe! This is $85-I think it is worth that much.

SUNGLASSES.jpeg

Striped Sunglasses-$10

I don’t have anything to say about this.

PURSE.jpeg

Woven Flower Purse-$10

It’s cute and matches the Spring Breeze Dress set very well, but it’s so small that I don’t think anything would fit in it.

FLORAL BOOTS.jpeg

Fun Floral Boots-$16

$16 just for boots that don’t even match anything? Seriously, AG?

I think the new releases are really cute, but there’s so much purple! I mean, purple is my favorite color, but I wish AG had some pink and green stuff, too.

By the way, who’s excited for the Melody Ellison Debut? I am! From her book, it seems like she is very pretty. Any ideas on what doll AG might retire? Tell me in the comments!
