Sorry I've been gone so long. College and doll collecting sometimes don't mix lol!
What a great time to be back though! Its getting quite festive in the American Girl world lately with all the Christmas items and exclusives arriving in stores this week. In fact, I will be heading to the store this weekend so expect a lot of updates on the exclusives.
I will also be meeting Valerie Tripp at the store! YAY She wrote Felicity, Molly, Kit, Josefina, and Maryellen's stories. She's quite the veteran, and Maryellen has recently won the 2015 Parenting Choice Silver Award! Congratulations to Valerie and her character Maryellen!
The in-store exclusive PWP is the snowflake dress with headband or the Santa dress with Santa hat. Both are $14 with $50 or more purchase. I will be buying the Santa dress one because I already have the black boots. I think its crazy how these outfits don't come with shoes but oh well. See agupdatenews on instagram for photos. I will have photos on Saturday or Sunday!
Grace's bakery is SOLD OUT. The bistro table set and the bakery cart have very low inventory, so consider buying those soon if you want them!
More in-store exclusives include a notebook and pillow for girls, headphones, a silver heart purse for the Christmas dresses, hats and gloves for girls, and necklaces and earrings. All of these items range from $10-$20 which is quite a deal!
American Girl is rumored to have a new salon chair and salon background coming soon. There are some other TBA backgrounds also. New doll and girl store exclusive pajamas are supposed to be arriving this month also.
And don't forget to save your money for the in-store exclusive holiday ball gown that's coming in November!
American Girl has also updated their sale page to include several girl sized retired pajamas from when they updated the bedtime sets last June. With this I would expect the old pajamas to show up on the Cyber Monday sale. Julie's sold out but there could be some left. I know Kit's and Rebecca's didn't sell out before the relaunch so definitely expect those for around $14-$16.
More Lea Clark leaks and information are hitting the web, so look for a separate post on that.
Also I will be investigating Beforever 2016 character that is rumored to release alongside Lea on January 1, 2016 because of the Amazon book release date. This could be a mistake, but it could be true since its American Girl's 30th anniversary!
