What next?

I know that sounds like a strange title for a post, but you’ll understand in a few seconds.  Or minutes, depending on how fast you read! 🙂

What it means–what is next on my wish list?  What would I like to get next?  I see plenty of blogs with gals debating on what doll they would like to have next, what accessories, etc.  So I had to ask myself the question, now what?

January is a time of great excitement at AG, and 2015 looks like it is shaping up to be a big deal.  We only have 2 weeks left in 2014 and very little has leaked out about the GOTY for 2015.  I’m sure that this will generate a lot of buzz and sales for AG.  I’ve seen the photos of the supposed GOTY 2015 and I’ll be honest, I doubt I’ll buy her.  For several reasons:  she’s not unique, she looks too much like Rebecca that I already have and I really think AG dropped the ball in not making her from either the Sonali or Marie Grace mold.  I’m not saying I’d never buy her since so much at this point is speculation.  I’ll make a better determination after the official release, but it’s not high on my list.  I was really hoping for a doll with more ethnicity this time around.  I guess we’ll soon find out.

As for any other dolls, I’m on hold at the moment.  I love the current dolls available with the Sonali mold, but I’m not 100% sold on the hair on either of them.  Not sure why, I’m just not.  I’m hopeful that they will do another doll in the new year with this mold.  Still kicking myself that I missed out on Cecile.  I’ve also thought of doing some eye-swap/wig swap stuff, not ruling it out completely.   Just waiting and thinking.

One thing I really do want is Kit’s typewriter.  Right now it’s currently on backorder which is okay, I’ll make sure I get on the list for one sometime after the new year.  Another thing I’d really like to have is ice skates.  I’m not in a hurry though, I do like the current skating costume, but will probably wait until they introduce a new one and it goes on clearance.  Or look for a pair of the skates on Ebay.  Have to have the blade guards too, not just skates.  If you haven’t figured it out already, I’m cheap.  There are a couple of other outfits I like, but nothing really jumps out at me as “you have to have this!”

American Girl ran a HUGE number of sales this holiday season, and from what I’ve been reading, a lot of it was unprecedented.  I have also noticed that there are a lot of sell outs of items with no backorder dates.  Something tells me that we are going to see a lot of new items coming out in 2015.  Fingers crossed that I am not disappointed.

So I will wait and see what 2015 has to offer.  Looking forward to the new catalog when it comes out.  What’s on your list?
