I was at the store yesterday to see the end of the year sale items, and was very pleasantly surprised to see several of the new items for next year already out on display! The new special edition mini dolls were out, along with the Truly Me Valentine outfits, a new store shirt, a treats food set that goes with the doll chair, a Truly Me Diabetes Kit, AG brand candy/chocolates, and my personal favorite, a large, plush Coconut to snuggle with!
I managed to take some photos with my phone and they are organized below. I tried my best to remember the prices but have forgotten a few. Please do not repost/claim/copy any of these images without written permission.
All 8 of the current historical Beforever characters get their own special edition mini doll. The boxes for these mini dolls are much larger than the regular mini doll boxes. There is a lot of "space" in the boxes, and each mini doll has a plastic insert that completely surrounds her silhouette to protect her from jiggling about in the box.
All the special edition mini dolls come with a mini version of their Journey book, as well as a "walking" mini doll stand (holds the legs in a walking pose, like the original meet book illustrations) which are now shown in this photo.

Here is a photo showing what I mean by the new "walking" stands that come with each mini doll.
Truly Me Valentine Outfits:
The Truly Me Valentine outfits are out!
Red Hearts Ruffle Outfit for Dolls - $28
Red Hearts Ruffle Outfit for Girls - $49
We saw this outfit when it leaked a while back so this one is no surprise
Comes with a plastic hearts bracelet.
And a plain, red ribbon headband.
(Thank goodness too, or it would really have been hearts overload! XD)
The dress is made from a light, sheer material like chiffon or organza, and has a plain, light pink underskirt. The girl sized version is made of similar material.

Valentine Tee Gift Set - $12
Comes with the shirt and the envelope.
Shirt worn on doll.

The ego tag is on the side but not obtrusive as it is a similar shade of pink. The graphic is a decal and shows ear buds over a glittery, silver heart, and words that say "Listen to your Heart".

New Truly Me Outfit (name?):
The graphic on the shirt shows a bird with a blue heart and the words "No job is too small!"
*Update: Thank you to American Girl Doll Artist who informed me that this shirt is from the activity book "Doll at Work". ^_^
New Store Shirt & Skirt:
There is a new store exclusive shirt and skirt, both for dolls and girls. I'm afraid I don't remember the prices for these.
Doll modeling Store Shirt
The decal is metallic and shows several stars. The AG logo with the store name underneath it is in the bottom, right corner.

The skirt has zigzag rows of different sized stars in different colors. The waistband is elastic and has a little purple ribbon bow.
Diabetes Kit - ? (I didn't see a price for this posted.)
It comes with a storage bag, insulin pump, insulin pen, glucose monitor, lancet, log book, glucose tablets, decorative stickers, and adhesive stickers.
I love this set and think it is a wonderful accessory set! So many children have type 1 diabetes in the USA and it is important to show them they are just as important and recognized as any other child, as well as show children who do not have type 1 diabetes that their peers who do are also just like them and help them learn about this condition.

Insulin Pump covered with a decorative sticker
Front of Insulin Pump
Plastic through and through, with a sticker "screen". The buttons cannot be pushed.
Back of Insulin Pump.
It can clip onto your doll's outfit. I find it rather hilarious the AG logo ego star was imprinted into the plastic of the clip.
Inside pages of Log Book
Log Book and Medical Bracelet
Medical bracelet has a purple cord and a "silver" tag that says "Type 1 Diabetes" with the medical symbol on either side.
Storage Case with ID Card
It's a wristlet for the doll to carry everything in. It looks small but fits all the pieces in this set.
Storage Case with ID Card
All one piece of plastic. Lid does not come off.
One piece of plastic I think. I can't recall if the lid came off or not. The AG logo is on the side, and underneath it is "Insulin Pen" in blue letters.
Plastic with sticker "screen". The buttons can't be pushed.
Lancet Device for Glucose Monitor
All one piece of plastic.
Sticks on the left, to decorate the insulin pump. Adhesive discs on the right also for the insulin pump "needle".
A paper insert inside shows all the pieces that come with this set.
The other side has a diagram showing how to attach the adhesive disc to the insulin pump "needle".
It seems like American Girl has their own brand of candy! Or specifically jelly beans and chocolates. ^_^ I actually saw these at the Chicago store over the summer, so the flagship stores may have always had them, but this is the first time I have seen them in a smaller AG store.
The jelly beans have interesting flavors. I want to try the cheesecake one, but not the cherry.
This little pouch contains 8 small square of chocolate.
The cardboard purse fits in my hand and closes with a velcro dot.
And then there are these sets of 10 milk chocolate squares with random quiz questions/riddles.
New Treats Seats Set Food Accessory:
Treat Seats Set - ? (I forgot, I'm sorry.)
This adorable set comes with a plastic pink plate, plastic cinnamon roll, white plastic cup with pink flower decal, a plastic "glass" of pink lemonade, and a napkin with a ribbon bow napkin holder.
The set is designed to look like a doll sized version of what you get when you visit the Bistro at an AG store. The plastic insert/cardboard holder fits over the Doll Seat arms which is a very convenient and nice touch for those who want to play their doll is eating at the AG Bistro with them.
Plush Stuffed Coconut:
Coconut Plush Toy - $20
I saved the best for last! Look how adorable plush Coconut is! I can attest to how soft and squishy he is. ^_^
Here he is next to an 18 inch doll so you can get a sense of scale.
