Okay guys, new releases over at AG today!!! And just when I thought there would be nothing I wanted, they go and do something that is just…perfect. Let’s talk new stuff!!
First things first: Wellie Wishers are here! Much anticipation about this new line of dolls, and we finally get to see them and all of their goodies. Lots of cute stuff, I’ll be curious to see how this line does. Personally, I doubt I will get any of the dolls. If I do, it would be Emerson, wouldn’t she be cute as Cassandra’s little sister? I would love to know if the little accessories are sized down any from standard AG size, I think the Make-It-Great Play set is so cute, but will hold off until I read more or get to see it in person. Overall though, a very cute line for the age group it is aimed at.
A few new things for Bitty Baby, but not a lot. I’m not a Bitty Baby collector, but I think what they have this time is very cute. Has anyone else noticed that Bitty Baby gets a lot of party clothes???
On to AG! I don’t know where to start!!! Some really cute new accessories, I will more than likely buy the ombre glasses. The jewelry is just okay, not all that wild about that. Clothing releases this time are just average, but there is a HUGE (and I mean HUGE!) development here. Almost everything is sold as separates!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSS!!!!!!! I’ve been saying for a while that this would be a nice thing so you can make up outfits you like instead of buying things because you like one item out of a set. This is a fantastic idea, I am so glad they decided to do this. I am trying to figure out this sudden emphasis on cats though?? Poor Coconut, gone and quickly forgotten. 😦
I was surprised to see a re-release of the trundle day bed this time around. It looks pretty much like the one they used to sell, just a change in the design on the center, the knobs on the trundle and the color of the bedding. Hopefully it is as well made as the previous one, it is one of my favorite pieces.
Camping is featured as the activity this time, and this is where it gets super dangerous…for me anyways. All sorts of cuteness and fun stuff. And this:
When I saw this, I let out a little squeal. I LOVE this. I’m not usually a big fan of the larger/pricier items, but this is where I might have to make an exception. I always thought Lanie’s camper was cute, and the OG version of it as well, but I was hesitant because of storage issues. With this, it’s just like a real one and it folds up!! All of the camping stuff is cute, but this really struck a chord with me, probably because my brother and several other people I know had one of these types of campers at some point in time. I was saving my money for some of the stuff for Melody, but that doesn’t come out until August (and I suspect late August since that seems to be when they release BeForever stuff), so that money may just go somewhere else. I suppose I could tell my husband I want Melody’s card table and chairs for my birthday? I’m also happy to see them bring back the domed tent style, I always liked that one better than the others. I doubt I will buy it since I have that pattern to make a tent (which BTW I haven’t done yet in case you wondered) and I have a My Life As version too. Still like it though. I do have lots of girls… 😉
Overall, I think this is a great release. The last few have just been “meh” for me, but this one made up for that. I have my fingers crossed that this release is a sign of things to come. I guess we will just have to wait and see.
