American Girl Summer Release

Have you seen American Girl’s new release? I’m not exactly sure when it came out, but I just learned about it last night. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, I’m going to share my opinions on their new stuff.

*All pictures belong to American Girl*

Welliewishers

WellieWishers — $60

First up, the new line of dolls: WellieWishers. I’m sure you guys know about them already; bloggers have been searching for them and uncovering new information ever since AG trademarked the name. The WellieWishers are 14.5″, making them the right size to be younger sisters for the 18″ dolls. It sounds like their bodies are made entirely of vinyl.

From left to right: Emerson, Ashlyn, Willa, Kendall, and Camille.

American Girl Little Ladybug Brush

Little Ladybug Brush — $8

VoilΓ ! A tiny hair brush.

Peek-a-Boo Wellies — $26

Socks Set — $20

Colorful socks and clear rain boots? Interesting. The socks would certainly let you change up your look with ease.

Playhouse — $250

This thing looks sweet, but there’s no way that I would pay $250 for this playhouse. Maybe if you’re rich and you’ve got that much money to blow on accessories for already expensive dolls . . .

American Girl WellieWishers Charm Bracelet

Charm Bracelet for Girls — $10

For ten dollars, all you get is the chain and the rain boot charm. All the other charms are $5. I think this is a neat idea — every time you get a new doll, you can buy the corresponding charm. But I think it would be even better if American Girl sold the charms with the dolls.

 :

You can buy all the dolls’ meet outfits in girl size. The shirts are $26, and the skirts are $28. So you’d be paying, uh . . . *maths* . . . $54 for one outfit.

American Girl WellieWishers Nature Explorer Set

Nature Explorer Set — $24

I think this is pretty adorable. πŸ™‚ Acorn-shaped bag! Canteen! Compass! Binoculars! I just want to know if the accessories are a good size for the 18″ dolls.

American Girl WellieWishers Ocean Treasures Set

Ocean Treasures Set — $24

I like the colors of this, but how much play value does it really have? I mean, the mermaid tail is cool (you guys know that I love mermaids), but what are you supposed to do with a shell, a message in a bottle, and an hourglass?

Tea for Two Party Set:

Tea for Two Party Set — $24

Cute — little forks and spoons!

Make-It-Great Play Set:

Make-it-Great Play Set — $24

LITTLE SCISSORS AND NOTEBOOK AND HAMMER AND PENCIL AND ASDFGHJKL

Giggles and Grins Play Set:

Giggles and Grins Play Set — $24

I really hope that these things are the right size for 18″ dolls, because FUNNY GLASSES and WHOOPEE CUSHIONS.

Carrot & Hutch:

Carrot & Hutch — $42

Aw, lil’ bunny. ☺ Carrot is a pretty cliche name, though . . . It’s like, “This is my bunny, her name is Carrot!”

“Wow, you have no imagination at all.”

Garden Theater Stage:

American Girl WellieWishers Garden Theater Stage -- rever

Garden Theater Stage — $90

This is super pretty, I love the colors! Plus, all the props are reversible, so you can give the theater a new look.

American Girl WellieWishers Showtime Ballet Costume

Showtime Ballet Costume — $24

American Girl WellieWishers Enchanted Garden PJs

Enchanted Garden PJs — $20

American Girl WellieWishers Flutter Wings Doll Carrier

Flutter Wings Doll Carrier — $45

$45 FOR A WEIRD BACKPACK-LOOKING THING?

Garden Party Table & Chairs:

Garden Party Table & Chairs — $58

At first I thought, Why are there so many bugs? But then I read the product description and found out that they are tic-tac-toe pieces. You can play the game on the tabletop, which I sort of cool, I guess.

American Girl WellieWishers Berry Sweet Snack Stand

Berry Sweet Snack Stand — $28

This one is actually really cute. πŸ™‚ I love the heart-shaped cookies and the clusters of berries!

American Girl WellieWishers Daisy Princess Costume

Daisy Princess Costume — $24

idk, it’s kind of icky. I know that purple and pink are supposed to go well together, but in this outfit, they just don’t.

Truly Me

Trundle Bed & Bedding Set:

Trundle Bed and Bedding Set — $100

Looks like we finally got a replacement for the old Dreamy Daybed! I love this, the colors and patterns are so pretty.

American Girl Truly Me Pomeranian Pajamas

Pomeranian Pajamas — $24

Wow. Doggy themed. I don’t dislike it, exactly, but I also don’t love it. I bet you could use the T-shirt and pants as regular clothes.

American Girl Truly Me Adventure Pop-Up Camper

Adventure Pop-Up Camper — $185

DUDE, I LOVE THIS. It’s really different from Lanie’s camper or the Our Generation one, which is cool. I love the little paper lanterns strung along the top! And the entire camper can fold down for easy storage. πŸ™‚

American Girl Truly Me Adventure Tent

Adventure Tent — $70

I think the fireflies in the jar are a nice touch.

American Girl Truly Me Adventure Campfire Set

Adventure Campfire Set — $42

American Girl Truly Me Adventure Sleeping Bag

Adventure Sleeping Bag — $28

I love the colors and the pattern that they used on this.

American Girl Doll Truly Me

American Girl released a huge new array of mix-and-match items! I really can’t pick a favorite; everything is so cute. But I love the Pretty Plaid Shirt, Side-Cinch Tank, Denim Jacket, Playful Print Skirt . . . pretty much everything. Not to mention, they sell everything (but the shoes) for girls, too!

American Girl Truly Me Ombre Ballet Outfit

Ombre Ballet Outfit — $34

This is very similar to a ballet outfit I have for my Barbies. πŸ˜‰ I love all the blues!

American Girl Truly Me Skeleton Outfit

Skeleton Outfit — $34

This Halloween outfit glows in the dark! And look at those awesome fingerless gloves! They are, without a doubt, my favorite part of this outfit.

American Girl Truly Me Glitter Glasses

Glitter Glasses — $10

American Girl Truly Me Brownie Ombre Glasses

Brownie Ombre Glasses — $10

American Girl Truly Me Butterfly & Gem Bracelet Set

Butterfly & Gem Bracelet Set — $8

I like the colors of the gem bracelet.

American Girl Truly Me Elegant Earrings Set

Elegant Earrings Set — $10

Wait, why are they selling two dangles and two studs for $10? Didn’t they used to sell, like, four of each for that price?

American Girl Truly Me 3-in-1 Ring Set

3-in-1 Ring Set — $8

American Girl Truly Me Cute & Comfy Lounge Set

Cute & Comfy Lounge Set — $20

The shirt is adorable! It could easily be used as a normal shirt.

American Girl Truly Me Mini Doll Tote

Mini Doll Tote — $10

I personally like the old purple tote better, but maybe that’s because I despise the color pink with a burning passion.

American Girl Truly Me Adorable Accents for Dolls - Everyday

Adorable Accents for Dolls – Everyday — $10

You could probably find all of this stuff at Dollar Tree.

American Girl Truly Me Adorable Accents for Dolls - Souvenir

Adorable Accents for Dolls – Souvenir — $10

Sparkle Star Cutaway Tee — $10

Cute!

American Girl Truly Me Star Skirt

American Girl Truly Me Sparkle Doll Tote for Girls

American Girl Truly Me Two-Doll Tote

Two-Doll Tote — $24

American Girl Truly Me Star Water Bottle

Star Water Bottle — $12

Why is American Girl selling water bottles? Aren’t they a doll/clothing company? Ah, whatever.

AG made some outfits for the Bitty Babies, but since I’m not into them, I decided not to include them in this post. Check out the site if you want to see the BB stuff.

Do you like the WellieWishers? Why or why not? What’s your favorite thing from this release? Least favorite?

  1. I like the WellieWishers. . . sorta. Really I just like the one with red hair. πŸ˜‰
    And. . . their eyes are a lot different than the 18 inch girls. I wonder if they open and close?

    Hmm. . .my favorite thing? That would be a tie between Carrot and Hutch & the Pomeranian Pajamas. :mrgreen:

    Least favorite. . . would be the Flutter Wings Doll Carrier.

    • Willa is pretty adorable. πŸ™‚ I read that the WellieWishers’ eyes stay open.

      Those are both cute. ☺

      Ugh, yes — that is a weird carrier. *shudders*

  2. I think the skirt is the store exclusive one, because when I went to AG that was the store exclusive one. I love the doll sleeping bag and bed, they surprisingly seem realistic (for AG!)

  3. The Wellie Wishers are cute… but they don’t look quite as well-made as American Girl Dolls. I like Camille a lot – and Willa too. They are so adorable! The clear wellies and socks are neat too.

  4. I actually think the Wellie Wishers aren’t that bad… I mean, they’re pretty cute. They’re not a baby doll, but they’re not a big 18 inch doll, which is nice for younger girls. As for the Truly Me stuff, I love all of the new items! My favorite though, is that super awesome camper. πŸ™‚ My least favorite is either the Ombre Ballet outfit, or the Skeleton costume.

    • Yep! To look on the bright side, not closing their eyes means new photo opportunities — like star gazing.

      Well, I guess that’s why AG has been releasing lots of TM things at every release.

  5. Which WW is your fav? Mine is Willa, and Camille, and Kendall, and Emerson…but Ashlyn is just meh for me. I like pink, but not THAT much, ya know what I mean? Yeah. I love the entire collection. I am in LUV. Did you know that two WW dolls is the same price as a GOTY? It’s crazy…

  6. The WellieWisher dolls are very cute, but I don’t really like that they are made of vinyl. Don’t little girls like dollies to snuggle? Large vinyl dolls just seem like giant barbie dolls to me. I get that they are easier to clean if they get dirty, but I know that my daughter doesn’t want one for that reason. Also, we have a Journey Girl doll, and she doesn’t get played with that much because her body is half vinyl. We love the AG dolls because they are soft bodied, so they can be used for imaginary play but at the end of the day, they can also be hugged up and snuggled. Especially if she is sick on the couch all day. πŸ™‚
