Out of all my dolls, Felicity is probably the most special to me. She’s the one who sparked my love for American Girl dolls. I saw her on the cover of my first AG catalog, and I knew I had to have her. Unfortunately, that catalog was announcing her retirement, so I never got a chance to buy her. For years afterwards, I would search for her on eBay every now and then, but I never had any luck, so I gave up.
I was obsessed with her book series. I read them all over and over again, even her mystery books, and bought her movie. I’d accepted that I would never have my own Felicity doll, but that didn’t mean I would stop loving her.
Then one day in February, I was browsing through eBay on a whim, and I found an amazingly cheap listing for a Historical Felicity doll. It was going to be taken down in a few hours, so without much thought, I bought her. Just like that. You wouldn’t believe how overjoyed I was. Sure, it’s just a doll — a toy — but I’d spent eight years hoping to get my hands on one, and I’d finally done it.
I would never have fallen in love with American Girl dolls if it weren’t for Felicity Merriman, and my collection wouldn’t have been complete without her.
Samantha is my fifteenth doll. My grandma found her at a yardsale and bought her for me.

I’m still trying to come up with a middle name for Felicity. I sort of like Winona, but any suggestions would be appreciated. :)
I redid my dolls’ profiles for the first time in almost four years!
A few things changed: I deleted some useless information, so they look somewhat neater now. Most of them have new profile pictures, too, and if I’ve done a review of a doll, I linked to it. A few of them have slightly different personalities, but I didn’t suddenly make Saige a sweetheart or anything drastic like that.
I also added profiles for my Ever After High, Hearts4Hearts, Madame Alexander, and mini dolls, although they aren’t very in-depth. You’ll have to visit The Dolls page to read them.
Now that I have a better understanding of who my dolls are, it might be easier to make photostories. Who knows. ;)
This is a cause for celebration, since it took me over a year to quit procrastinating and update the profiles. So I created a short quiz that tells you which of my dolls you’re most like. Take it and tell me the results in the comments!

Hey, guys! I finished Parker’s profile a long time ago and never got around to posting it. But it’s here now. :)

She’s sort of named after Jamia Iero (whose husband is Frank Iero. He was in the band My Chemical Romance.). I like the name Jamia (pronounced ja-mee-a), and I’m band trash, so it felt like a good choice.
I feel kind of bad about how short this post is. But profile posts usually are. idk, what have you all been up to this summer? I want to chat with you guys in the comments. I went to North Carolina for vacation (and I didn’t get any doll pictures, I’m so sorry), and I’ll be going to summer camp with my best friend next month.
