Create Your Own Custom Dolls Are Officially Here!

Yesterday we received an awesome email saying that American Girl's Create Your Own custom doll line is officially here! We are both very excited and had to check out their website to see all of the options to share with you. We are very interested to see how the actual options compare to what we saw in the teaser video we added to our last post.

From what we can see, there are lots and lots of possibilities to what you can create, and we are very excited.

2017 MCM Benefit Sale Sunday Report

We went to the Madison Children's Museum Benefit Sale again this year. The sale took place on July 22nd and 23rd. We went for the discounted second day of the sale, and are excited to report what was available as well as our experience.

We arrived at the sale at 7:15, and the line was already super long. The sale volunteers started to hand out tickets for 9 o'clock entry at 8 am. We received tickets to be in the third group in, with numbers in the high 200s. The first group of free tickets entered the sale at around 9:30 instead of 9:00 due to overcrowding in the warehouse. This pushed back entry times for all groups, so we ended up entering the warehouse at 10:30, and were very surprised at what was left.

New Release - Gabriela!

It's that time of year again, and we have a new Girl of the Year! GOTY 2017 is Gabriela McBride. Gabriela is an African American doll, which excites us since AG has not had a doll of color be the Girl of the Year since Kanani in 2011. Gabriela is a dancer, which we were not too happy to hear. Don't get me wrong, we love cute dance outfits, but it has only been two years since the last GOTY dancer (Isabelle in 2014). But there is a new twist on Gabriella - she is a poet and has a stutter. I think this is great since there has not been a doll like that before, so at least she is unique in that aspect.
Gabriela Doll and Book
The Gabriela doll retails for $115 and has dark skin, curly brown hair, and brown eyes. Her meet outfit includes a purple cropped top with three-quarter length sleeves and a dream graphic layered over a teal tank top, skinny jeans, purple and blue sneakers, and a pink double headband.
