The joint venture between Toys R Us and American Girl is moving along. Only 100 stores are going to be carrying the Truly Me items. Unfortunately (or maybe that’s a good thing) none of the ones close to me are part of that 100 stores. If you want to see if your store is on the list, you can pull it up at the Toys R Us website.
I did a search on “American Girl” while I was there, and I was surprised to see it pull up a large selection of Truly Me products. You cannot order them online, nor can you select “store pickup” for any of these items. You have to go to the store that carries them to purchase. I scrolled through to see what all had been selected as part of this line, when I came across this:
I was really surprised to see this, I don’t recall seeing this anywhere on the AG website recently! I thought the price was very competitive as well. The scooter from Our Generation retails for $29.99, so this is quite an interesting twist. I’m also curious if this is something we will see released on the American Girl website in the coming weeks, or a Toys R Us only item? My curiosity is killing me! I was also surprised to see in their listings the Gourmet Kitchen set. It has been out of stock since just after it came out, so I wonder if perhaps we’ll see it come back in stock sometime soon? It has been fluctuating between “back ordered until” and “no longer available” for the past several weeks. And will there be other items added to the line?
Time will tell!
