My Opinion On American Girl’s New Stuff…

Hi girls! Madison here. Everyone one else in the AG blogging world (well mostly everyone) is posting their opinions on AG’s new summer release, and I certainly have a few things to say as well, so, why not?

*Keep in mind this is my opinion only and hope you don’t get offended by anything I have to say, rather, I would LOVE to hear what you think on AG’s new release too, so let me know in the comments below!*

#61 is pretty cute, but I don’t plan on getting her.

Coconut Cutie Outfit
Ehh, I suppose this outfit is ok. I mainly like the skirt and shoes, but the shirt isn’t that appealing to me. I just wish the purple American Girl tag wasn’t on there, it’s just too much for one outfit IMO.

School Stripes Dress
Cute, but I don’t want it.

Bright Stripes Outfit for Dolls + Charm
Adorable! I just might ask for this for Christmas. I’m just thinking how adorable it will look in photostories and stopmotions!

Starryย Hoodie Outfit

Cute, but not me/mydoll’s style. I LOVE the leggings and wish I could buy them separately, but the whole outfit is, like….ehhh….ok?

Petals & Plaid PJ’s for Dolls + Charm
Cute but I don’t want it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Bee Myself Outfit for Dolls + Charm
WHAT ON EARTH?! NO ONE I KNOW who is old enough for an AG doll would wear this. Or even their dolls wear it. This would be better for Dollaween ( ;)) or something, but honestly? This should’ve been for Bitty Baby! AG’s new MyAG outfits just didn’t sparks something special to me this release, sorry.

MyAG accesories:
Doodle Backpack Set
I NEED THIS!!! My new doll Joy (Ivy) is an artist (I changed her personality from being crazy about gymnastics to being crazy about art.) and SHE NEEDS THIS. I am SO asking for this for Christmas! (too early to be thinking about Christmas? Nahh!)

Accent Braid Clips
Nice idea, but doing your dolls’ hair yourself is way more fun.

Bouquet Nightstand
Ha. ย  ย Ha. ย  ย  ย  I want this so bad it’s not even funny. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! Joy NEEDS this for her bedroom. It’s so amazing and cute!

Bouquet Bed & Bedding
Love the bed, not the price.(bed and bedding together $212!) It’d be nice to have it for Joy, but for now she is content sitting on her homemade bed. ^_^

The new pets: you have to be kidding me! I miss the old Coconut and adorable Licorice! :'( They did away with all the old games (NET PET IS GONE!!! NOOOOO!!!!!) and replaced them with….these fluffy furball-ish things? Come on. I know, I know, in with the new out with the old, but I sure do like the old. The collars are a nice idea though. I might get the girly one for my own Coconut sometime. ^_^

Dalmatian Puppy
But the Dalmation is TO DIE FOR! My BFF got it and all the legs can move, meaning they can sit down, lie down, actually walk, etc., just imagine how CUTE that would look in my stopmotions. Not to mention the puppy is way cuter in real life, and it has a magnet in his mouth that attracts the little fetch toy. (again, adorable stopmotion material right there!) this is totally on my wishlist.

Pet Ballerina Outfit
New pet outfits: O….kay?! Might I say totally pointless?! What on earth is the little ballet slipper for? And who would put their dog in a tutu? With a tiara? Unless for some pet-dress-up-contest-thing? (ok, I know people who would, but definitely not me.)

Isabelle’s stuff:
I LOVE her new Sparkle Dress! So cute, but I don’t want it like really bad. And the makeup case is so cool too, just imagine (you know what I’m going to say next, don’t you?) HOW CUTE THAT WOULD LOOK IN A STOPMOTION!

Bitty Baby/Bitty Twin stuff:
I’m seriously not interested in Bitty Baby/Bitty Twins so I couldn’t care less, but there have been some outfits that caught my eyes that would probably fit (and looks adorable) on an AG doll….hmm.

      Oh and I just NEED the Bright stripes outfit!

      P.S. I have been looking at MAG#51 She is just adorbs! I’ll ask for her on my XMas list and see if I get her, I would name her Skylar.

    As you’ve already seen what I think of everything on my blog, I won’t make a super long comment about what I think ๐Ÿ˜›
    But, yes, I too totally NEED the Bright Stripes Outfit!! I also am totally buying MAG #61 and naming her Jenna! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And about the Bee Myself Outfit- it’s not meant to be an everyday outfit, but a costume for Halloween. It’s their new Halloween outfit since they are getting rid of this one in their sale:
    Just thought I’d let you know that ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Also the Pet Ballerina Outfit is silly, but I do like the tiara. And my mom suggested that the shoe could be a squeaky toy, which it could be ๐Ÿ˜€
    All in all I totally LOVED this release!!!

    I loved reading your thoughts! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I think #61 is really pretty, but she isn’t my favorite…yet….
    I don’t really like the Coconut Cutie outfit, because I don’t see how it looks good together.
    The School Stripes Outfit is okay, but not great.
    I like the Bright Stripes Outfit more than most of the items released. It is so original!
    For the next outfit you say it is the Bright Stripes Outfit, like the one before it; typo! Anyway, it looks kind of like pajamas. I actually kind of like it, but my dolls wouldn’t really wear it.
    The PJ’s are okay, but I love them.
    The bee outfit is kind of cute, but I thought it was ironic that it is called the “Bee Myself Outfit” when you are dressing up to be a bee. So, are you supposed to be a bee, or yourself? ๐Ÿ˜›
    The Doodle Backpack is okay, probably better than the previous one.
    As someone else said, you can buy the Accent Braid Clips for $15, or you can braid your hair for free. ๐Ÿ˜›
    I think that the Bouquet Nightstand is a really good idea, but I don’t like the pink color.
    I think the new bed is really cool, but a bit cheap looking. Of course, the price is a whole different story…
    I think the new pets look kinda cuter than the old ones, but I think the new Coconut is TOTALLY NOT Coconut. She looks cute, but not as Coconut.
    The Pet Ballerina Outfit is so, so, worthless. You are right.
    The Sparkle Dress is okay, but it isn’t my thing. (Are you wanting to get Isabelle?)
    I am not at all interested in BB, but I think the BT’s are really cute. I’d like to have the medium skin and black haired ones.
    I hope you don’t mind my extra long comment and I hope you like reading my opinion. You can look on my blog for my five favorites, plus my five worst items in the release. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I totally agree the Bee Yourself outfit should be for Bitty Babies.
    When I saw Isabelle’s makeup, I totally wanted it. But just warning on you, it comes with only 3 makeup things: lipgloss, the thing you use to put blush on and fragrance. I made my own makeup an hour ago completely free, and it has lipgloss (several of them), and several blush and eye shadow palettes. I’m posting how you can create the makeup on my blog with a print-out sheet, cardboard, scissors, tape and straws ๐Ÿ˜€
    Just my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚

      And also, all of her makeup says ‘Isabelle’ on it. Not very handy if you don’t have her ๐Ÿ˜‰

        It doesn’t matter! You can pretend shes like a fashion designer (which she is..) and make belive its one of her “fancy fashion labels” . I might get this set along with Isabellle but Im hoping I can also get her

    Honestly, I was very upset with A.G. for a lot of the new stuff. Ok so some of it is cute but other stuff is not. I am a oldie, and dont like the change.

    AG: Introducing MAG 61!
    Collectors: Hey look, a Not-Saige. Meh.
    Me: Oh look, Not-Felicity. She’s nice. But Felicity’s better ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I was not the hugest fan of some of these outfits. who knows why
    The camping one may be one of my favorites. On most of the blogs I’ve been looking at, people are like “Who would wear THAT camping??” and I was just thinking “my entire girl scout troop” or something. oh wait you didn’t post the camping one ๐Ÿ˜›
    the Coconut outfit is nice, probably also one of my favorites. The starry hoodie would be nice if they hadn’t made a letter green. that bugs me more than it should.
    The bee outfit is okay for Dolloween. A black tutu would have made it look much better, though. The school stripe dress… why why why. why three different colors of stripes all going different directions it just. the shoes are okay though.
    Another thing you didn’t post, the karate outfit. I have issues with that. main issue being, why are you giving them a black belt right off the bat. you can’t master karate that easily. I just got to yellow belt yesterday (i’ve been doing karate for a couple months) Unless this is a Dolloween costume, they should have given you more than one belt.
    I like the trail accessories and the doodle backpack. The new tent is ten dollars more than the last one and it comes with less stuff. why. is it bigger or something?
    I like the doodle earrings. i might consider those sometime.
    i liked the old nightstand better. but that’s just me.
    Why couldn’t they keep some of the old pets besides Coconut and just recreate them into the new version? They FINALLY brought Licorice back and now she’s gone. Again. They literally have one cat besides Rebecca’s and Caroline’s now. not cool. The dalmation is okay though. I’ll consider it. “Apricot Poodle”, they say. It’s Honey.
    The makeup set… somewhere I saw someone complaining that there shouldn’t be a makeup set, little girls shouldnt care about makeup. It’s stage makeup, people. If you don’t put on something under the lights, you’re going to look really pale and that would be strange. But it doesn’t need to be 36 dollars. You could make your own for less and with some more variety.

    …wow i sound pessimistic in this ๐Ÿ˜›

      I agree with the makeup part! So many people complain makeup isn’t for little girls, but if you were Isabelle, going onstage for a recital, you’d have to wear it!

    Maddi, will you do the Snowflake Award soon? It is an award that I created. If you go on my blog, search ‘Snowflake Award’, and it should show up. I think that My AG #61 is really cute!

    That shoe with the dog outfit is a dog toy to go in the dog’s mouth, I think. I really like the blazer outfit, but it’s not $38 cute. I’ll wait till it goes on sale. I got the School Stripe Dress. I think it’s really cute! I like that bed set, but it’s so much money! ๐Ÿ™ I got mini Saige at a doll outlet for $20! She is really cute and I’m glad to have her. She says “Hi,” to Jocelyn.
