Girl of the Year 2014 Ideas Part 2

A couple months ago we did a Girl of the Year 2014 Ideas post, and now it is time for a sequel to that post. 
We still have no physical description of GOTY 2014, but that should change in the next couple weeks.  We always have more coming in October.  Her name is not specified yet, but the most likely candidates are Teagan and Isabelle.  She will be a dancer, and now the summaries of her 3 (yes, 3!) books are up on Amazon:
American Girl GOTY 2014 Book 1 by Laurence Yep – GOTY 2014 is excited about starting her first year at the Anna Hart School of the Arts! But she can’t help comparing herself to her older sister, Jade, who attends the same school and is an amazing ballerina. GOTY 2014′s other classmates are equally talented, and she starts wondering whether she really belongs at her new school. She earns a role in the fall festival, but she struggles during rehearsals. Can GOTY 2014 learn how to focus less on those around her and more on her own dancing? With help from her sister and her friends, GOTY 2014 may discover a unique talent that she can truly call her own.
American Girl GOTY 2014 Book 2 by Laurence Yep – As GOTY 2014 rehearses her ballet routine for The Nutcracker, she wonders if she’ll ever master her pirouettes, especially with her classmate Renata pointing out her every mistake. She tries focusing on the other parts of the production she enjoys: exploring the costume and props room and helping out with costumes for some of the younger dancers. But when Jade, her big sister who also attends Anna Hart School of the Arts, becomes moody and withdrawn, GOTY 2014 taps into her design skills to try to find a solution for Jade. In the meantime, can GOTY 2014 find the confidence to tune out Renata and perfect her own performance, too?
American Girl GOTY 2014 Book 3 by Laurence Yep – GOTY 14 is doing great at the Anna Hart School of the Arts–her dancing idol Jackie Sanchez even invites her to go on tour! GOTY 2014 jumps on board, but she quickly finds that the traveling show has its challenges, not the least of which is bossy Renata who was invited to come, too. When the dance show suddenly starts falling apart, GOTY 2014 tries to help Jackie pull it back together–and begins to learn more about a mentor who encouraged Jackie to dance as a young girl. As GOTY taps into her talents to try to save the show, she not only discovers who inspired Jackie, but also how she, herself, can inspire those around her.

So, tada!  What we know so far!  Hopefully a physical description and name soon to come!
As for the vlog, we aren't going to do it, because it wasn't AG related and it was taking too long.  Sorry, we haven't done a real post in forever!

Review on #49 Paige

We posted a picture of Paige on Instagram a couple days ago, and we had a request to do a review on her.  Enjoy!
#49 has medium skin, black-brown wavy hair, and blue eyes.  She also has the Classic Facemold.

 Paige's skin next to a light skinned doll.
 Her eyes are the standard blue that they use for all blue-eyed MyAG's except for #24.
 Paige's black-brown hair next to a lighter brown color.
 Paige's black-brown hair next to Chrissa's dark brown hair.
 Although, from afar, the difference in the color is not as noticeable.  She can wear the dark brown hair pieces from AG without a problem.
 Paige's hand next to Kanani's hand.  In the picture, it looks like Paige's hand is darker, but in reality they are the same color.
Paige's hair is really silky and soft.  We think it might actually be Sonali's hair, so if you have Sonali, compare her hair to Paige's.  Her hair can be brushed or picked, and you can brush it out straight like below,

 Or twist the hair into curls.
Paige looks good in EVERYTHING.  Seriously.  Here are a few versatile outfits where you can decide for yourself.
Saige's Sweater Outfit

 Kanani's Meet Outfit

 Pretty & Plaid Outfit


So, all in all, we have no complaints about buying #49.  She looks good in everything and is very photogenic.  Her hair is very easy to manage, unlike a lot of curly-haired dolls.  Her eyes are a bright shade of blue, and if you are cought between #49 and #60, buy #49, because #49's skin tone really pops with her eyes, while #60's light skin can't really compare.  #49's hair will also hold hairstyles better because of the wavy texture of it.  Although if you really want #60, don't let anything stop you because she really is a gorgeous doll!  In our opinion, #49 is the doll from AG who looks most like Katniss because she has olive skin, dark brown/black hair, and from certain angles, her eyes look grey.  Sorry, we were kind of rambling there for a bit!  Also, a new blog design is coming shortly, watch for it!

Interview up!

Our first place interview from Nina is up on her blog!  You can find it here.

Sunday, September 1, 2013


Sorry, we were kind of offline for the past day or two, we had a little Labor Day vacation thing, but we are back home now!  Sometime this week we will be posting an Elegant Blogger Award thing, and, per request, a review on Paige.  We are preparing for our trip to Disney World (we go in about a week and a half), and will upload a packing video for what we are bringing doll-wise.  When we get back, we will start a video for Buterflycandy's contest and then after that, work on adding two new members to our doll collection!  So that kind of sums up the next month or so AG wise, and although we may not be posting as much due to school, we still love to hear your opinion and read your posts!

New AG Releases: From Love it to Leave it

Yay, the new AG Releases are out!!  You have probably read so many of these, but we are going to make one also, with Sam and Liz telling you what they think as well!  So, we present our very first...Mini Doll Musing!  With all four of us telling us what we think.  We're not really going to review the Bitty Baby stuff, though, because that would take too long.

Tarynn:  Shorts and leggings?  Seriously?  I would honestly buy this though, and use the leggings for a different outfit.
Valorie: I like it, but I don't think the leggings should go with the outfit.  The leggings are cute though.
Sam: Oh my! This is hideous! If anyone buys this I will sue! I do like the shoes though:)
Liz:  Yikes.  None of the big dolls should ever wear that.

Tarynn:  Kind of McKenna knock-offy, but a good marketing move for people who missed it last year.
Valorie: I like this idea because I was sad I didn't get the bar and beam last year.
Sam:  We could have a party on this thing!
Liz:  This looks fun to climb on!

Tarynn:  Same as above.
Valorie:  I liked McKenna's better, but oh well I might buy this.
Sam:  It has pink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Liz:  I like the colours better than McKenna's.

Tarynn:  This is really cute!  I want this!
Valorie:  It's okay, wouldn't be first on my list.
Sam:  That doll is pretty.
Liz:  The shoes look awesome!

Tarynn:  Cool, but overpriced.
Valorie:  That is way better than the other spa chair! Making a new wishlist!
Sam:  Pink!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Liz:  This would make a good jungle gym.

Tarynn:  I guess this is more to make the doll the stylist instead of the girl...  It should come with a brush though.
Valorie:  I like the idea the dolls could do the mini doll's hair.
Sam:  Julie could do my hair!! I love having my hair done.
Liz:  Whatever

Tarynn:  It's ok, but it's overpriced.
Valorie:  This is cool.
Sam:   I hate it. Blah
Liz:  Good jungle gym!

Tarynn:  This is cute, but not really on the wish list.
Valorie:  I love the boots, but don't like the jacket.
Sam:  It's a no no.
Liz:  The coat looks fun to play in.

Tarynn:  The inner tube is just like Chrissa's, but the snowman is cute.
Valorie:  I like the snowman:)
Sam:  I like snow. This thing is awesome.
Liz:  I want it!  The snowman looks very friendly!

Tarynn:  Really pretty!
Valorie:  This dress is pretty.
Sam:  It would be prettier if it were pink.
Liz:  Meh.

Tarynn:  I love this outfit!  I have to get it!
Valorie:  This is sooo pretty! I love it!
Sam:  I like the shoes.
Liz:  It's pretty.  They should make it mini-doll sized.

Tarynn:  This is really cute, and I hope I have time to get it.
Valorie:  This is cute, and I like purple.  This is definitely a yes.
Sam:  The skirt is pretty.
Liz:  Same as last one.

Two ways to bring home Bitty Baby
Tarynn:  The facemold is creepy, and the price has skyrocketed.  Not liking this at all.
Valorie:  Wow.  The price really went up.  Eek.
Sam:  This is pink! It's soo pretty.  Well at least the outfit is.  The doll looks somewhat disturbing.
Liz:  They look like aliens.

So, that's our thoughts on the New AG Releases, and when this poll is over, we'll put up a new one asking what you think about them!
