Store Photos of Truly Me Release - May 21

I had class early this morning, but fortunately we were let out a little early. As soon as we finished, I sprinted out of the lecture hall. My class mates called out to me, "What's the rush? There's no class this afternoon!"

To which I responded, "NO TIME! TODAY'S THE NEW RELEASE FOR AMERICAN GIRL!"

:D

I didn't make it to the store til the afternoon but was able to spend a fun time looking at the new releases. Overall I really love the summer release as well as the variety of the new dolls. However, I was a bit unprepared for the small size of the release for a debut (I had made it out to be a very large affair in my mind). I'm not too keen on the flamingo theme this summer (why not Galapagos tortoises?) or the new meet outfit and accessories, but hey, it's only two years right? XD

Here are the photos from my visit, organized into the following categories (no measurements this time because there wasn't really anything to measure).

    Well, I'm glad they don't have tortoises or sea turtles; I would have to take out a loan and buy it all :D I think the flamingo theme is cute enough and it's only for this summer, and this way I have more saved up for Maryellen. Thanks for the pictures :)

    1. LOL that's a very very good point! :D I guess we can save the turtles for the year money rains down from the sky. ^_^ Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  7. Thank you so much for doing this post, the pictures and explanations of the new dolls is great. I spent a lot of time looking at AG's photos online trying to figure out what looked different with their new asian doll and didn't realize it was Ivy's face mold.

    1. Thank you! I'm very happy to hear that the photos have been helpful for people! The Ivy and Jess molds look really great with non typical Asian combinations (dark hair/dark eyes) in custom dolls, and I think there are enough non Asians with facial features similar to the molds that I really wish AG would try out these combinations.

  8. Am I the only person to notice that we have not a clue about the next GOTY? By now we'd have a bit of the movie at least AND the rumors about names, but all we've got is the name Gabriela.

    1. Hmmm, I didn't really follow the GotY line in last year or the year before so I can't remember the time line for the leaks, but you're right, it's strange we don't have any info about the movie at least because surely they have to have the scripts for auditioning out.

  9. Hey Lilly, does AG give us advance notice on which Truly Me Doll will retire next? Because prior to releasing Truly Me, I never knew three of the dolls were retiring.

    1. Unfortunately, with the exception of Beforever character retirement, AG does not give any warning on soon to go items. :(
