The American Girl Summer release is upon us! Let’s take a look at the goodies AG has given us this time :)
Recess Ready Outfit — $30
This outfit is cute, but the overall appearance is a bit weird. I’d purchase this outfit for mix-n-match.
Mod Monster Costume — $34
Um . . . OK? I know this is a Halloween costume, but the wig is kind of over the top. I like the dress and the boots. Especially the boots!
Basketball Outfit — $34
This is really cute, and I’m glad it’s not pink or purple. I was going to get the old basketball outfit for MJ, but the lavender color threw me off. This outfit would be great for Julie dolls.
Sparkle Sweater Outfit — $30
My mom said this looked like they just took a bunch of leftover pieces and threw them together, and I’d have to agree. Mix-n-match potential, perhaps? But those boots are pretty great . . .
Sparkle Socks and Leggings — $12
It’s a pretty good deal for only $12, but I don’t really like the pants . ..
Tweed Driver’s Cap — $10
It’s a little too busy, but I think a dark-haired doll could pull it off.
Fun Fedora — $10
I like that the strap isn’t pink. A boy doll could wear this too.
Silver Sparkle Beanie — $10
Striped Hoodie — $14
I like it! American Girl sells a girl-sized version of this for $42.
Rhinestone Baseball Cap — $10
My dolls have been asking me for a baseball hat :)
Hot Lunch Set
Ador-r-r-r-able food! I really like the fruit salad, and how the straw is a separate piece. Oh, and look at that fork!
Sport Storage Bench — $48
Cute!! Looks like it comes with the bench, a clipboard, cones, a jump rope, baseball bat, Wiffle ball, football (eek!), and maybe the blue ball is for dodgeball. I wonder why there’s no soccer ball. I mean, if they’re going to include the cones . . . But I think this is such a cute set, and if they put it on sale, I’ll definitely get it. My dolls do love sports!
Science Fair Set — $32
OVERPRICED. I LOVE that telescope, but is looks like you could make most of the things in this set. Makes me want a star-obsessed doll!
Slow Cooker Dinner Set — $58
I love this too! The butter dish is so cute :)
Shearling Boots — $16
Fuzzy purple boots with bows? Cute! Saige can totally see herself being lazy in these xD
Sparkle Sneakers — $14
LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Hairstyle Tools — $20
Normal, normal. What is the pointy pink thing? This set is WAY too expensive for what it comes with.
Stylin’ Bangs — $20
Disgusting. That’s all I have to say.
Double Braid Headband — $20
Eh. It’s better than the single braid headband, but you could still do this easily on your doll. I do like the gold in each one, though.
Terrier Puppy — $28
Is this the new Sugar? If it is, I’m glad this puppy doesn’t have a pink bow in its fur. But why is there another dog? American Girl needs cats for their My AGs — excuse me, Truly Me dolls.
Flip-Top Desk — $58
Cute! I just wish the chair wasn’t attached to the desk. It guess $58 isn’t too much for this set.
Julie’s Zigzag Pajamas — $24
Eh. Looks like something the Bitty Babies would get.
Julie’s Daisy Vanity Set — $60
Just the vanity and an alarm clock and a hairbrush that can’t even be used on the doll? It’s overpriced anyway.
Julie’s Bed and Bedding — $125
I wish they hadn’t changed it . . . I liked the old one much better. I think it’s the flowers that I don’t like. But I’m glad they kept the beads. I just wish the beds weren’t so expensive! Doll beds are really easy to make. I’m not gonna spend $100+ on a bed, no matter how much I like it.
Josefina’s Nighttime Accessories — $45
Josefina’s got a doll! I like this set.
Josefina’s Nightgown $24
Simple nightgown, but I like it.
Josefina’s Bed and Bedding — $85
I like this much better than the old one.
Kit’s Bed and Bedding — $95
Eh . . . I like the colors of the old one better. And does it still fold out, now that she’s the only doll in her collection?
Kit’s One-Piece Pajamas — $24
Puppy print? Seriously, AG, puppy print?! You can do better than this! The old one was better. WAY better. And because the pjs are one-piece, young kids might have trouble putting it on their doll.
Kit’s Radio Set — $42
I like the book, but not so much the rest of the stuff . . .
Rebecca’s Satin Pajamas — $24
Way too much pink. The old ones were much better.
Rebecca’s Bed and Bedding — $125
CAN I GAG NOW. IT LOOKS LIKE A PRINCESS THING.
Rebecca’s Bedroom Accessories — $45
Adorable!! Look at those nesting dolls!
Addy’s Nightgown — $24
Eh. Nothing too special.
Addy’s Bed and Bedding — $85
It’s not very different from the old one. I think they should have made the pillow white.
Addy’s Bedroom Accessories — $45
$45 for three little things?!
Pow-Wow Dress of Today — $42
It’s better than Kaya’s Jingle Dress of Today, but I like the other dresses in her collection. I wish Kaya had more stuff.
Blue Patterned Pajamas for Girls — $48
I really love the shirt!
Girl of the Year:
These have been out for a couple of days but whatever.
Grace’s Sweet Hairstyles Set — $22
Grace DVD — $9.95
I’m excited to see this! Did AG say anything about showing the Grace movie on TV this year?
Grace’s Sightseeing Outfit — $30
I LOVE this outfit and hope to get it! American Girl Artist did a really nice review of this on her blog.
Grace’s Sightseeing Accessories — $28
*shrugs* The little shawl thing is OK, but I’m not going to buy it.
I skipped some stuff (Bitty Baby and girl-sized, some books), and if you want to see bigger pics, just go to the American Girl website. AG wouldn’t let me copy their pictures very easily so that’s why they’re really small. What do you think of this release? I’m glad that there’s not a lot of pink in it!
