whatsaftertheparty asked: Hi! Is it confirmed that Grace Thomas is going to be realised next year? She's so beautiful p, I'm sorry if you've been asked this loads of times I just love the 50's so I'm so excited to buy all the outfits! Xx

I honestly don’t know if anything is confirmed, but apparently she was supposed to come out this year with BeForever and was pushed back to 2015 when the company made the decision to bring back Samantha instead. I guess we’ll have to see!

Anonymous asked: Tell us about the historical you are planning to create!

IDK all the details yet, but she’s going to be an African-American girl from a middle class background integrating a white school, probably in either Texas or Alabama because those are places I can easily get a lot of primary source knowledge on, and she’ll use this girl as the starting point (I probably won’t change any physical details, just the clothing.) I had kinda been hoping AG would take that tack with the 50s doll anyways but they didn’t, and I saw the blue and orange dress in Grace’s leaked photos and was like “WOW that would look great on darker skin I should totally do a created historical since we won’t get the real thing from AG.”

Anonymous asked: Are you planning on buying any of the new beforever dolls/stuff? Do you think we will bet to see more previews soon? (:

Well I can’t say I’m planning per se as my purchases tend to be kind of spur-of-the-moment-when-I-have-money. And I’ll have to see what all they come out with in terms of outfits, but I liked the factory-escaped photo of Julie’s denim tunic and red bell-bottoms, so that will probably be high on my list, as will any of Addy’s new stuff if her new meet dress is any indication of the collection’s potential. I’m also curious about the new Samantha items, and if/when Grace comes out I will probably cannibalize a lot of her stuff to do my first created historical.

Taylor and Ayden Her started an 18 Million Rising petition requesting that American Girl make a new Asian American doll to replace the soon-to-be-discontinued Ivy Ling, the only AAPI doll in the Historical Characters line. The company has refused to commit one way or the other, so now the girls are generously lending the toy maker a helping hand by gathering stories of real life Asian American women and girls to inspire a new doll.

Anonymous asked: When do you think Grace Thomas is being released? Thanks!

Rumor mill says sometime in 2015. If so, based on previous years’ releases and the nature of her line I’m guessing late spring/early summer, or maybe a few weeks before Easter if they want to have the girls’ dresses available for that.

Anonymous asked: Can you share more pictures of Grace Thomas? I haven't seen her yet.

They were posted some time ago and AG requested that they be taken down. I have the pictures and if you will message me off anon, I’ll gladly share them with you, but I’m not posting again.

ang-hoe asked: Do you think they'll bring Kirsten back next year since they're bringing Samantha back this year?

I’ve already stated that my prediction is there will probably be 12 characters on a rotating schedule where 8 of them are available at any time. (All the ones we know already minus C&MG, plus “Grace Thomas”, the fifties girl whose pictures were leaked a few months ago.) Whether the schedule would rotate on a yearly basis or something slower is anyone’s guess.

Hi there! My name is Sarah. I run a small organization that helps children with cancer. Our current project is AG related, and I was wondering if you might help share it with your followers! If you can’t, I totally understand. But I figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask! 

"Would any American Girl fans like to help out some other little American Girl fans that are fighting cancer? We are trying to raise money to send two little girls, Kaitlyn and Emily, who are both battling cancer, on a trip to the American Girl store in Columbus, Ohio.  Kaitlyn and Emily are best friends and they love to play with their American Girl dolls together when their illnesses allow them to spend time with one another. We are trying to raise enough money so that they can have a mini shopping spree in the store, and stay in a nearby hotel that offers an American Girl suite. Please consider helping these kiddos out, anything makes a difference. These girls really deserve a day to just be little girls."

Here is our fundraising link: https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/2mIs0/ab/33SJpb

I’d be glad to help! Hey followers, check this out!

We talked with Taylor & Ayden and they agreed that we should do something more to get American Girl’s attention. Together, we came up with this clever plan: send e-cards using American Girl’s e-card service.
Send an e-card to American Girl VP Jean McKenzie telling her we’ll miss the Asian American Girl doll. It’s easy.
Click here to get to the e-card: http://bit.ly/1wB5W1R
Enter Ivy Ling into the blank space under “Your First Name.”
Enter Jean into the blank space under “Friend’s First Name.”
Enter jean.mckenzie@mattel.com in the blank space under “Friend’s E-mail Address.”
Select “Miss You” from the dropdown menu.
Then select one of the “Miss You” messages and hit “NEXT.”
 After you hit “NEXT,” you’ll be taken to a preview page where all you have to do is click “Send.”


this is actually genius

Anonymous asked: will there be new everything for the new BeForever collection, like will there be new furniture and outfites and accessories or only some new things?

I don’t know for sure, but I expect that the vast majority of outfits will be redone, and there will be several new furniture and accessory sets BUT the existing ones may or may not be retired.
