Kit's News and Views

Welcome to the July 17th edition of Kit's News and Views!  Let's see what's happening around Cincinnati and the rest of the nation of American Girls:

Rebecca's Lace dress has been rumored to be retiring for some time now.  It just disappeared from the website on Friday.  :( 

Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight is showing in American Girl stores this weekend!  Don't miss out!!! 

There are TOOOONS I mean TOOOOONS of new MAG items!  Go check it out!  Here are some of my favorites:  

Kit's birthday dress is retiring so pick it up if you haven't!!!


Starting Monday, July 14th, American Girl will be having an in-store only 50% off sale on select items while supplies last.  I'm so exciting because my AG store trip is in 3 days!!!  American Girl mentioned in their email that the Cello set and the old Coconut Play outfit will be part of the sale.  The rest of the sale items will be a surprise!  


I checked the AG publishing website and I noticed that ALL RETIRED AG BOOKS EXCEPT FOR THE MYSTERIES WERE GONE.  Gone.  All gone...

I don't know if they are redoing them into Beforever format, or if AG changed their minds about keeping retired AG literature. If they are indeed getting rid of them, this is extremely sad news.  The books are the heart of AG and this brought me to tears. 
For those of you who are confused, the AG publishing website is where all book stores and retailers get their AG book shipments.  Which can only mean one thing:  they are not selling retired AG books to retailers and are phasing them out.  Even though AG said they are keeping the books and the mini dolls, but from what I've seen (they already got rid of Nellie, Emily, and Molly mini dolls, and Ivy, Ruthie, the NOLA minis are on clearance)  If you go by this, I think the books are going too.  
This is the last straw for me, and if this becomes true I don't think I will be purchasing from AG anymore.  
American Girl even posted on their facebook page last week in response to this outrage that they will not be getting rid of the books and that the books are here to stay.  I'm not buying it.  They said no dolls were retiring this year and look what happened.  They deliberately lied, and I don't like giving my money to places that do that.  So this trip to AG may very well be my last until I see an improvement with their business practices.  

For now, let's all have a moment of silence for our beloved, forgotten characters that we cherished as little kids.
