American Girl Truly Me Doll 54 Has A New Look & Meet Her Best Friend

In this video, Truly Me doll #54 is finally getting a name, some new clothes, and a best friend.
How exciting is that! 

Once I knew I wanted the doll to be, Ivy Ling, I went about my search on eBay to find the perfect outfits for the doll makeover. 
I discovered some great retired American Girl Beforever sets for her new style. The sets I purchased were the retired Ivy Ling's Meet Outfit without boots and the retired Ivy Ling's Accessories. Since the meet outfit which I bought didn't come with the boots, I needed to improvise. So I added the MYAG True Spirit boots from meet outfit available back in 2012. I think they match perfectly! 
I also had the dolls ears pierced so she could wear the beautiful Chandelier earring from Ivy's Accessories set.
Once I dressed the doll and added the accessories, I knew she looked so much like the original Ivy Ling, and she got her name.
The last thing to do was to introduce her to her best friend, Julie Albright! These two best friends now can share in lots of adventures which will be super fun.
Doll #54 is a fantastic substitute for the Ivy Ling doll since they retired Ivy in 2014. I'm so happy to add Ivy Ling to my Julie Albright Beforever Collection!

New American Girl Spirit Cheer Videos Coming in 2018

American Girl Spirit is working on some awesomely fun new cheer videos for 2018. We will bring back our popular American Girl Spirit Cheerleaders in a new video, with a few changes in the lineup. Rebecca and Samantha have changed over to a new sport, which is very exciting for them and two new girls will take their places. I wonder who will replace them?

Another video will feature our new cheerleading rival squad, with Eva (TM doll #42) as the head cheer girl and Inda Spirit as the Mascot! The dog is so incredibly cute!

New Cheer uniforms have arrived!

American Girl Spirit's Mascot INDA SPIRIT!

This next video has been so spectacularly fun to plan, the American Girl Spirit Roller Girls. I just love their uniforms especially the jackets! Our head Roller Girl Maryellen Larkin is wearing the very cool Roller Girl uniform we have put together in the picture below. The Roller Girls will consist of our Beforever Dolls! Could this be what Rebecca and Samantha were talking about when they left the American Girl Spirit Cheerleading Squad?

WHAT! American Girl Buyers Beware Of The Pricing! Is This A Mistake?


Today I was interested in purchasing American Girl's Z Yang's Media Kit. WooHoo! As usual, I went to work on seeing if there was any kinda deal on the product online. I checked the usual sites American Girl and Indigo Chapters websites.

Oh boy, was I shocked! 

Indigo Chapters was selling Z Yangs Media Kit online and in store for $110.17 US or $129 Canadian. American Girl's website is selling Z's Media Kit for $60 US or $70.80 Canadian!

Indigo Chapters store Canada Z's Media Kit


A difference of $50.17 US or $58.20 Canadian more!
If you want to save money make sure to buy Z's Media Kit on the American Girl websites.

I sincerely hope this is just a mistake on Indigo Chapters pricing!

Holiday Season 2017

As I begin to think about the Holiday season coming up, I took the opportunity to look at some of the fun pictures from past seasons. These three pictures remind me of all the fun hours we put into making the New Years Eve Party video 2015. It was our second stop motion video, and we still hadn't got the hang of it yet, but we sure did try hard. It was a lot of fun creating the Christmas Fashion Show and the New Years Eve Party, and we hope to be able to create more videos like these. We are anxiously awaiting the new American Girl Holiday Dress, and then the planning will begin! Have you started thinking about the Holiday season? Christmas is only 109 days away!!

American Girl WellieWishers Playhouse

Over the last few weeks, I was able to open and review the WellieWishers Playhouse. I was completely thrilled with this American Girl product. The Playhouse is an extremely well made, detailed, beautifully designed, and high quality product with equally impressive accessories. As a parent with four children of my own, I know how hard children can sometimes be on toys, and this product is built to last for tons of imaginative play. I do know that a common worry is that the felt piece accessories which go with the Playhouse won't last very long. I think a good solution to that problem is to buy some felt for your child to cut out new shapes when these wear out. It is an easy solution and a fun simple craft for your child to do. Overall the Playhouse is a fantastic American Girl product to purchase. It retails for $250 and is age appropriate for 5 and up. If you want to see my WellieWishers Playhouse Opening and Review head over to American Girl Spirit's YouTube channel by clicking the link below.
