No. I choose to shoot myself out of embarrassment

Found this pic of me when I got Emily for my birthday 💗 She was the last doll I received as a kid. I really connected with Emily because I was half English and always felt like I didn’t fit in and connect anywhere. So it was nice to see a character who also felt a bit at odds with American kids.
I’ve said this before but in high school I sold off my collection of AG stuff to pay for a theater camp. But also because I felt a weird pressure and judgement for still having my dolls. Both from my parents and from friends. Like “you’re almost an adult why would you keep this”. So I got rid of them to “grow up”. It was such a huge mistake to get rid of my childhood dolls and I will bitterly regret selling them forever. I may get a new Kit- but it won’t be MY Kit, ya know?
Anywho when I started to get back into AG I got really sad thinking about this concept. One day I was digging in the back of my little brother’s closet for something- and there she was. My sweet Emily. Somehow she didn’t get sold. I still don’t know how. But I’m so happy and grateful I have her. She is so precious to me as the last surviving piece of my childhood collection and the link from my old one to my new girls.

If AG really wants to capitalize on nostalgia the way they seem to want to with the bag collab, they could I don’t know have made more of the 35th anniversary dolls, or even just had the other 3 of the original 6 available at all, or even just had the books of their retired dolls available at all 🙄

I think I know more about American Girl Dolls than you do, genius.
Wanted to do AG for my next set of icon boards, starting with my first doll.

you know how alvia alyn lynd played maryellen in that amazon special? what if, just to piss off ag, we all simultaneously decided their precious 50s girl had the personality of alvia’s character from daybreak

thinking about american girl again and how samantha parkington has the most unhinged 9 year old girl vibes..... she meets nellie for like 3 seconds and she's like 'we are best friends. eat this gingerbread. it is now my job to feed and entertain and teach and clothe you.' nellie doesn't even do or say much, she's just there and not a terrible person. all you have to do is not be a jackass and sam will go so hard for you. and if you are a jackass she WILL stick gum in your hair and you won't even tell on her to your mom cuz you know if the two of you are questioned she will completely eviscerate you. like imagine being miss parkington's classmate at school and she rolls up to The Big Fancy School Speech Competition wearing some pink and white number with like 97 ruffles and bows on it and then she stands up at the podium and goes 'i couldn't write a speech on the provided topic, which was progress in america, because my best friend is a literal child the same age as me and there are no laws preventing her labour from being exploited for capitalist gain, from which i must conclude america has not progressed. thank you and goodnight, parkington out' and she still wins!! unreal

Anuli- One of my favourite face molds is the Addy mold- I think it has the most friendly looking eyes!

Addy is incredible — I think you can see by the amount of notes I added that I truly enjoyed her book series. So much so that I read a couple of her books each night rather than allotting one per night. 😅

American Girl stories were the best tbh

I only watched Matilda for the first time a couple of years ago. And then I quickly read the book and listen to the musical about a dozen times after that. It’s one of my favorite stories, and I’ve always adored this moment of Matilda walking along the road with her wagon in tow! My mom recreated her iconic dress by upcycling a large women’s one she found at a thrift store. To match the floral pattern, she actually hand painted the red and yellow flowers onto the fabric. It’s one of my favorite things!
