New 2017 Contemporary Character Tenney Grant


For months now, we've been finding out bits and pieces about a new line American Girl is planning to debut next year. Here is what we know so far (please keep in mind nothing is certain til AG releases her officially):

1) The line is called the Contemporary MG (Modern Girl?). 
2) This is different from the Girl of the Year line, and there will be a separate Girl of the Year 2017 (rumored name Gabriela) next year. 
3) The first Contemporary girl's name is Tennyson Grant (nickname Tenney).
4) She will have a series of books to accompany the doll which include 2 main story books and 1 character journal.
5) The release date will be January 31st (based of her book publication date). *Update 12/3: Rumors are circulating the doll will be released on Feb. 9th, 2017.*
6) Tenny is white, with blond, curly/wavy hair, and what looks like brown eyes.
7) She is from Nashville, Tennessee.
8) Her pet is a Golden Retriever dog named Waylon.
9) She plays guitar and banjo, and loves to perform.
10) Her best friend is Jaya Mitra, who loves art.
11) There may be a second contemporary character released later in the spring (publication date in April).
*Update 12/3* Rumors are circulating that:
12) A boy doll "Logan" who will be her brother will be released with her on Feb. 9th, 2017.
13) Both Tenney and Logan will have differently shaped hands in order to be able to hold their instruments.

Leaked Photos of New Indigo Dress for Truly Me

I hope those of use in the USA had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday! This lovely indigo dress leaked recently. From the oval AG ego tag, I'm guessing it'll be for the Truly Me line. Since it's so simple in shape and design, it could be a Purchase-with-Purchase. It is also possible we just haven't seen the other pieces to the outfit. I have added it to the Master List of Leaked AG Releases. ^_^

eBay Photos:
The shoes are from Melody's meet outfit and not a part of this set.

You can see the oval AG ego tag at the bottom corner of the dress.

I'm not sure if this will be the new Purchase-with-Purchase or part of a new outfit. It's really basic and simple, but I love the color and think it will look flattering on many dolls. If the price is right, I can see myself grabbing this. >_>

Upcoming New Sparkle Sheath Dress Photos

I hope all of you fans have invested in proper, protective sunglasses for next year, because AG is not holding back on the sparkle explosion. This newest leaked outfit is a black sheath dress decorated up the chimney with silver sequins. No clue if it's for the Truly Me line (I don't see the oval AG ego tag), or if it's for Girl of the Year 2017 (possible name Gabriela), or the new Contemporary Character (possible name Tenney Grant). I have added it to the Master List of Leaked AG Releases. ^_^

It looks like the non sticky velcro.

So as much as I tease and berate American Girl about their copious amounts of bling on these upcoming releases, in truth I rather like this dress. I think the design is pretty classy and fun, and it looks more sophisticated. ^_^ I want to see it on a doll first, but right now I'm in the "want" camp on this outfit.

Photos of New Lace Top & Sparkle Skirt Outfit

This beautiful lace top and pink sparkle skirt outfit leaked recently. I don't know what line they'll be for. I can see it being for the Truly Me line, and even as mix and match again, since each piece works separately as well. It could also possibly for next year's Girl of the Year 2017 (rumored name Gabriela), or the new Contemporary Character (rumored name Tenney Grant). Thanks to the fantastic Shannon who shared photos of this outfit modeled on her doll with us! I have added this outfit to the Master List of Leaked AG Releases. ^_^

This is my favorite outfit of the upcoming new outfits for Truly Me! I'm such a sucker for lace, and I love how elegant it looks on Shannon's doll. ^_^ If it's part of a mix-and-match, I can see it being quite popular.
