Hey, guys! Kiki nominated me for The Blue Sky Tag. Thanks, pal. :)
1) Thank the person who nominated you
2) Answer the 11 questions
3) Tag 11 new people
4) Give them 11 more questions to answer
Who was the first doll that you got (doesn’t have to be AG)?
That would be Violet, a Madame Alexander doll. She’s pretty poor quality, and most of her hair has fallen out, so I pretend that she has cancer and is getting chemo.
I bought Violet because my mom didn’t want me to spend so much money on an American Girl doll. She saw the Madame Alexander dolls at Costco and encouraged me to get one of them instead. Once she saw how easily Violet fell apart, she helped me get my first AG, Tracy (#39).
What’s your favorite American Girl doll?
Felicity Merriman will always be my favorite. I’ve been searching for the Historical version of her on eBay for years with no luck.
If you could design anything for American Girl, what would it be?
I’d love to create a Girl of the Year. I don’t know what she would look like or be interested in, but it sounds like fun. :)
How did you learn about American Girl?
My aunt and uncle gave me the Kaya and (most of) the Felicity series as gifts. I found out about the dolls from promotional cards stuck in the books, and things went on from there. And that’s the story of how I’ve spent $2000+ and seven years of my life on these dolls. Thanks, family.

What’s your favorite AG pet?
Saige’s dog Rembrandt, probably because I would love to have a border collie.
What’s your favorite item AG sells?
What 18 inch doll brand do you like to buy from?
The only ones I’ve bought from are American Girl, Madame Alexander, and Our Generation. AG is the best quality, so definitely that one.
Who’s your favorite AGTuber?
I don’t actually watch any AGTubers, although I used to watch basilmentos, rockstar13studios, Agpals, and one with “waffles” in the name that I can’t seem to find. But my favorite was always Chickenbuddies, specifically her video How To Do Math (with Jaymie). My brother and I still quote it to this day.
Who’s your favorite BeForever character?
Definitely Kaya. I’ve wanted her for years, she’s gorgeous, and her story is one of my favorites. But Josefina and Rebecca are runner-ups because of how pretty they are.
What’s your favorite thing to do with your dolls?
Photograph them. They’re good models because they never make faces while I’m trying to take their picture, unlike my friends. I also love blogging about them, of course.
What’s your favorite kind of doll-related post?
To make: photostories. Short stories are a good way to practice writing. And to read: anything from AG Doll Awesome. Sam could keyboard smash and I would still think it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever read. #ilysam
Honestly, I can’t think of eight more doll blogs that haven’t already done this. So I tag those three, plus anyone who asks to do it in the comments. You guys can just answer the same questions that I did.
Have a good day! :)
