Revealing My New Doll!

I finally got around to taking pictures of my mystery doll! I didn’t mean to make you guys wait this long to find out, I promise. I wanted to photograph her outside, but it’s been rainy here for awhile, so I ended up doing the photoshoot inside by our giant fern.

I know you guys don’t care and you just want to see the new doll, so here:

























The new doll is Felicity Merriman!

I promised to give a shout-out to anyone who guessed correctly, so here it is:

Kaitlyn | AGs in Alaska | Clara | Laura | Hope | Natalie | Sapphire | Sophia | Kiki | Madison | Rose | Persephone | Julia | Emma | The AG Homeschooler | American Girl Doll Crafter | Tory | Tori & Bella | Quinley | Sarah | Diamond | Ms. AGDoll | Arabella | ThePolkaDotPatriot | Allison | Miri | Kathleen

That was a lot of linking.

Other guesses: Lea, Jess, Nikki, Chrissa, Lanie, Luciana, Nanea, Tenney, Z, Kit, Saige, McKenna.

I think I threw some of you off with hint #3 (she’s been retired). Felicity is currently available to purchase, but I wasn’t technically lying. See, at one point she was retired (2011). If I had said she is retired, it would have been a lie, but the way I worded it saved me. ;)

As you can see by the purple dress, this Felicity is a Pleasant Company doll! I was scrolling through eBay on a whim when I found her for $56. She came in great condition, and with her entire meet outfit, except for the shoes and hair ribbon.

I can’t believe how nice her hair is. I’ve been playing with it all the time, just twisting it and fiddling with her pin curls. Super nice hair on a cheap, used doll isn’t something I was expecting, so it was a nice surprise.

Anyway, enjoy the photoshoot! :)

Felicity was on the cover of my first American Girl catalog, and she’s the one who got me into dolls in 2010. I’ve been looking for her on eBay ever since then, and I’m so glad that after eight years of searching, I’ve finally been able to add her to my collection.




Guess My New Doll | Hints

(Inspired by Natalie)

Well, friends, I did it again. There is another American Girl doll for me in the mail.

She’s going to be my fourteenth AG doll — oops? I really don’t need anymore, and I wasn’t planning on buying one anytime soon, but I have money leftover from Christmas and poor impulse control.

The doll isn’t due to arrive until the 8th, so in the meantime, I thought I’d post a few hints as to which one she could be.

Hint #1: she has a film.

Hint #2: she loves animals.

I’ll hopefully post more clues before she gets here, so you guys can have a better chance of picking the right doll. :)

Who do you think she is? Leave your guesses in the comments! (Except for Sam and Rutvi, you two aren’t allowed to guess.) Anyone who gets the right answer will get a shout-out.



My Thoughts on Luciana Vega

American Girl Luciana Doll & Book

Luciana Vega Doll & Book

I have a lot of feelings about Luciana and pretty much all of them are good.

First of all, we got another POC GOTY (she’s of Chilean descent)! Second, I’m thrilled that she’s into STEM. AG has been making a lot of their characters like the arts, and while I love that kind of thing myself, it’s refreshing and inspiring to have one of them passionate about science.

As for the doll herself, I think she’s adorable, and if I weren’t growing out of my dolls, I would buy her right away. I love the purple streak in her hair, and, of course, those amazing boots. The galaxy print on the dress is a bit too much for me, but I’m sure it appeals to the target age.

I’m loving her holographic theme, it’s so cute. I don’t think her accessories are that great, but I’m glad that they gave her a backpack instead of the usual purse. If she’s at space camp, she’s definitely going to need a roomy bag.

American Girl Luciana's Flight Suit for 18-inch Dolls

Flight Suit

I’m a huge fan of sewing patches onto everything, so A+ for that. I also really like the black shoes. They make my secretly emo heart happy.

American Girl Luciana's Mars Habitat

Mars Habitat

This is insanely cool and I am completely here for it. It comes with dumbbells, a toy 3D printer, petri dishes, etc.

According to this report, women in the U.S. held only 24% of STEM jobs in 2015. I love the idea of young girls playing with this set, becoming interested in science, and going on to up that percent. Push that feminist agenda, AG. American Girl Luciana's Maker Station

My favorite part of this set is probably the container of succulents sitting on the top shelf. I know I’m completely missing the point, but I just really, really love plants.

I don’t particularly care for this one, but it’s still cute.

American Girl Luciana's Telescope Projector Set

Telescope Projector Set

Apparently the telescope “lights up and projects space scenes.” That’s pretty sweet, and I am always a sucker for space. I think the blanket is a bit ugly, but it’s still a nice set.

American Girl Luciana's Robotic Dog

Robot pets will always be better than real ones because you don’t have to clean up after them.

American Girl Luciana's Stellar Outfit for 18-inch Dolls

Stellar Outfit

I like some of the pieces separately, but in my opinion, it doesn’t work together that well. But I love the jacket, I think it’s those patches drawing me in again.

American Girl Luciana's Visitor Center Accessories

Visitor Center Accessories

I don’t care that this is mostly just paper, I am 100% ready to drop $20 to get that NASA shirt. I have one in my size and I need my dolls to match.

My overall thoughts on Luciana:

I like that they gave her some feminine elements (pink, dresses, pretty hair) instead of making her a complete tomboy to match the male-dominated science field. Also, when I was younger, I wanted to be an astronaut, and although my plans have since changed, I am still in love with space. So Luciana is making me rather nostalgic.

I’m not a huge fan of the galaxy print found in most of her sets/outfits, but I understand why it’s there. AG was just tying everything together with a common theme.

I don’t know much about her story, but Luciana is already one of my favorite GOTYs from AG in awhile. Even though I’m not as into dolls as I used to be, it would still be nice if I could get her and a few things from her collection someday.

What do you think of Luciana? Are you going to buy her? I’d love to have a discussion with you in the comments, but please remember to be respectful to others. :)



Three Years


Today is rather important for this little blog. It marks three years since Happy House of AG was created. I’ve got to say, I really didn’t expect that this blog would still be running three years later — but here I am, still being weird and creative and enjoying having a corner of the internet all to myself.

I really wish that I had planned something special for today. You guys deserve an amazing surprise, as a thank you for sticking around, even when I disappear for weeks. But today kind of snuck up on me, and I didn’t have time to plan anything.

American Girl doll Ivy Ling | Happy House of AG

Over the years, this blog has grown so much. Seven American Girl dolls have joined the crew; four and a half (I know you guys are still worked up about Serpents, sorry) weird photostory series have taken place; over four hundred people thought this trashy site was cool enough to follow; you’ve left thousands of funny and encouraging comments; and I’ve made countless wonderful internet friends.

Ever After High doll Ashlynn Ella | Happy House of AG

I hope Happy House of AG will still be around many years from now. But for now, I’ll just focus on making it to my four year blogiversary.

Thanks for everything, guys. I love you. :)


New Girl


I really was not planning on buying another doll. But as I do not have much self-control in the AG store, a new girl came home with me yesterday.

American Girl doll Truly Me #40 | Happy House of AG

Please welcome Parker (#40) to the HHOAG family.

I haven’t quite figured out her personality yet. But I believe she’ll be fourteen, with a love for the paranormal. I’m not entirely sure, though.

I almost got #64 instead, but I fell in love with Parker’s short hair.

I also bought the Tropical Print Dress from the new mix-and-match set.



My dad bought the Blue Sandals for me.

Would anyone like a review of her? Maybe a comparison between Parker and Ivy?

I got a pink hoodie and jeans.


And the Geo-Print Shorts.

That’s all I got at the D.C. store. I’ll probably do some reviews.

Anyway, please welcome Miss Parker.


I’m Going to the GOTY Debut

Hey, darlings!

I’ll be at the D.C. American Girl store on January 1st. My dad is taking me (how many dads are willing to take their daughter to a pink store filled with dolls and excited girls?) and I’ll be getting lots of pictures of the new Girl of the Year, Gabriela McBride.

Are any of you going to be at the D.C. store for the GOTY’s debut? If so, I’d love to meet up with you! It’s my dream to meet my internet friends in real life.

Anyway, on the first, I’ll either post something new or update this with more information, like what time we’ll be arriving, what doll I’ll bring, etc.

I really hope I get to meet some of you. :D
