General Store Photos for GOTY 2016 Debut, Books, Gifts, PWP

General Store Photos: Line Outside
this was the line in front of the store at around 15 minutes before opening on the first!

See how it stretches from the entrance of the store into the mall?

And stretches...

And stretches... XD 
Despite this, the line moved at a very nice pace and everyone got in and there were plenty of debut gifts for the girls 

Store Displays










It seems like she has a downloadable game in the App Store for $1.99. 

Many of the signs for her mention the partnership with WWF (World Wildlife Foundation).



This is the large "set" that girls can stand in, next to Lea and take pictures with her! It's modeled to look like her rainforest house.



Debut Free Gift
The free gift from the debut this year also came in a cute little envelope like Grace's debut gift did. This year is is a pink sarong (wrap to go over swimsuit bottoms).  It's made from smooth, stretchy material, like swimsuit material. You tie the two ends together around the waist. The color matches Lea's Mix & Match Swim Set very well!

In one bottom corner is a little turtle symbol decal.

Along the top is also the Lea Clark ego tag. I'm surprised AG took the time to stick the ego tag on this free gift but left it off the pieces in the Mix & Match Swim Set since they're made from the same material.

This is the reverse side of the envelope and sarong. The sarong has another tag. XD

Lea Debut Crafts
There were 3 activities in the store for the children to do. The first is this turtle, where you could punch out the colored stripes, and weave them through the turtle shell to decorate it.

These are the slots you weave the colored strips through.

And this is what the punched out colored strips look like.

There is also a large posted handed out for kids to color.

And finally children could select one of these paper ribbons with the attribute they wish to have and write their name on the ribbon.

Hehehehe! We did this too! Since there are raging exams in the looming future, success & especially intelligence sounded good. ^_^

Then you can stick the ribbon onto the Lea's Wish Ribbon wall!

Books
Nothing too exciting here as we'd seen these already. The store also had Melody's first book for sale as well.

Purchase-With-Purchase
This current in store Purchase-with-Purchase is the Casual Chic Outfit. You can buy it for $17 after spending $50 in stores.

A Lovely Little Lady
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Hope-Faith Wiggins at the store and her mother Maxine. She and her mother allowed me to take this photo of Hope with her new Lea doll and share it here. ^_^

  2. Does anyone know if Lea's books will be available as ebooks? Other GOTY books are, and all of Maryellen's stories were made available as ebooks upon her release in August, but when I looked in the kindle amazon store, I couldn't find any of Lea's. Thanks to anyone who can help with this.

    1. I believe they should be, and am surprised to hear they aren't currently already available. Hopefully it will be up soon. I know Melody's first book is already available on the Kindle.

    1. I don't think there is a cooler with the Rainforest House. Do you mean the silver drinks cooler with the Fruit Stand? That one is not removable.

  4. Yes! I'm sorry, I meant the Fruit Stand. Thanks!

  5. I saw on some reviews that this doll doesn't have neck strings and her head doesn't turn. Did you happen to notice? I'm very curious!

    1. She does not have neck strings and her head does turn. If you look at the bottom of the post beneath the last photo, there is a link called "Back to All GOTY 2016 Lea Clark Debut Store Photos" which will take you to the page with the full list of photos of Lea and her collection. :)

    2. Thank you for all the info and pictures. We moved away from the Dallas store and it is killing me to not just go see her myself! The neck strings aren't a deal killer, but I think I would prefer to have them. Thank you!

    3. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos and find them helpful! The neck strings are not a deal breaker for me as I do not do a lot of customizing/adjusting myself, but I vastly prefer strings.

  6. I read Lea's first two books, and they only mention two of her three wish bracelets ( the ones in the accessories ) in the books. I wonder if the third one will be mentioned I the third book? Great post by the way Lilly!

    1. That's interesting! I didn't realize her wish bracelets were mentioned in the books. :)

    2. Yep they are. :) In the first book, she chooses an orange one for courage to swim in the ocean.

    3. Thanks for letting me know! I haven't read her books yet.

  7. How wonderful of you to take and share pictures of the store and items! For those of us who can't get to the store just yet, it was almost as good as being there! Thank you ever so much! I am about 2 hours away from the Charlotte, NC store, in WNC.
