Old Pictures

I’m sitting here trying to think of a blog post, when suddenly it hits me. Why don’t I share some of my old pictures of my dolls that I took when I was younger? My photography has improved a lot since then, so no criticism please!

Apparently, I did not understand proper lighting and flash use in my younger days.

Back in my one-doll days.

B-L-U-R-R-Y . . .

I have very talented dolls. They can play the piano.

Christmas with the dollies.

Why are they not looking at the camera? Why? Why? WHY?????

Again, not looking at the camera.

And yes, I am aware that there is a hole in the wall. That’s how I get to Narnia.

Yes, I flew to Paris with Morgan for a photoshoot.

So, like I said, my photography has improved a lot since these pictures were taken.

The reason I’m posting this is because the camera is malfunctioning and I can’t take any pictures and I really wanted to do a post with pictures, so this is it.

Which picture is your favorite?

Review of Travel Seat For Dolls

Hi, y’all. I know I’m posting twice in one day, but I’ve been meaning to do a review of the Travel Seat for a while now, and AG’s Wondrous World’s review of the Recces Ready Outfit prompted me to do so. Here’s the review!

American Girl Travel Seat for Dolls

I’m going to start out with the good things about this item.

First, the idea of having a travel seat for dolls that attaches to suitcase handles is fantastic! I have seen girls in airports with their beloved dolls strapped into travel seats, and I think it’s super cute.

 

Um . . . that’s the only good thing.

I own this product, and I have to say that’s it’s of terrible quality. I only used the seat once before the flaps that attach it to the suitcase ripped off of the back of the seat, making it completely unusable.

Also, the doll can easily fall out of the seat, which is super embarrassing when you’re boarding an airplane. But that never *Cough, cough* happened to me, of course.

So this is basically a warning to NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! I’m very unimpressed with it, especially because it costs $30. And I used my own money to buy it.

Of course, if you’re looking to attract attention in an airport, having a doll riding on your car seat is a great way to get it. *Wink, wink* 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Sorry for the negative review, but I feel it’s my duty to my fellow AG lovers to warn them about this AG item. Never have I seen such poor quality! I hope my next review will be better.

Create Your Own Released + Name That Doll!

Hi! My last post was about Create Your Own dolls, American Girl’s new type of doll. They’re a lot like TrulyMe dolls, except you can customize the doll exactly the way you want her, from eye color to hair color to skin tone and even face shape!

Create Your Own were released yesterday and I went online to the American Girl doll website and created my own doll. This is what she looks like:

Isn’t she cute? I’m not actually going to be getting her, considering I already have a doll (Crystal) who looks almost exactly like me already, and I cannot justify the $200 price of buying a Create Your Own. But I l-o-v-e the idea!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Are any of you guys going to be getting Create Your Own dolls?

I decided that this doll needs a name – and what better way to do that than a Name That Doll contest?

This time, you guys get to come up with your own names instead of voting. Post your name ideas in the description, and on August 16th I’ll pick the name I like best. Winner gets bragging rights! So what are you still waiting for? I want ideas!!!

Breaking News!!!

Okay, well I don’t really know if this is breaking news, but I just found out the COOLEST THING EVER when I was on the AG website.

Coming soon, YOU can create your own, completely personalized doll! I mean completely customized! Take a look:

They’re called Create Your Own dolls. I love this idea so much!!! In addition to creating your own doll, you can also make your own outfit for the doll, plus you get a Create Your Own tee-shirt, personalized keepsake doll box, and a 6-month subscription to the AG magazine!

Plus, it ships free. Probably not including Alaska and Hawaii.

I have a theory about why American Girl is doing this. I watched a YouTube video where a girl called AG and asked what they thought about customizing AG dolls (not like the Create Your Owns, but buying wigs and changing their eyes and stuff), and they said the dolls aren’t meant to be customized. That’s probably also the reason the dolls come with zip ties, not strings, so you can’t take their heads off to customize. Now they’re offering dolls you can make to look just like you, and charging nearly a hundred dollars more than the regular TrulyMe dolls.

Anyway, I love these dolls so much! Now girls who don’t have a TrulyMe who looks just like them can finally have their own! Way to go, American Girl!!!!

What do YOU guys think of Create Your Own dolls? Are you going to get one? Tell me in the comments below!
