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