The GOTY debut was a lot of fun. I drove up to D.C. with my dad, walked around the store for quite a long time, made fun of the sets I didn’t like . . . I also got to meet Izzy from Sew Sweet Dollies (a private blog). Getting to meet you was amazing, Izzy! You’re also incredibly cute. I say that in a non-creepy way, but I really mean it.
If anyone is wondering, I don’t know what the free debut gift is. I didn’t get one, and I don’t even know if there was one this year. Does anyone know?
Anyway, here are my pictures from the store.
The new Girl of the Year, Gabriela McBride. I like her pants and shoes.
The AG community has been requesting an African-American GOTY for quite some time, and I’m glad our wish was finally granted. Maybe I’m being picky, but I would have liked Gabriela a lot more if there was something more unique about her. She looks just like the African-American Truly Me dolls. If American Girl had given her a feature that made her stand out, I would have considered buying her.
They gave her box a completely new style . . . interesting.
So Gabriela is into the arts, right? Dancing, painting, music, poetry. That’s cool and all (I freaking love the arts), but didn’t we just have a dancer GOTY in 2014? And isn’t Melody a singer? I guess AG has been running low on GOTY ideas.
Super sparkly outfit. I like it, actually.
THE LAPTOP AND THE HEADPHONES. I LOVE THEM.
Her cat creeps me out.
The new Dream Pajamas.
Adorable doll food.
Ice skating set.
A lot of you have been asking if I bought anything. Well, duh, of course I did. 😛 I’ll be posting tomorrow, hopefully, about what I got.
And, yeah, I did get a doll.
I wasn’t planning on buying her, but she came home anyway. 😄 Any guesses?
