Thoughts on Luciana

Why, hello there! Happy 2018! I hope you guys are all recovering from staying up until midnight, or one in the morning, in my case.

I am SO excited to be doing this opinions post on Luciana Vega, GOTY 2018. Let me just tell you that I am WAAAAAAY happier with this year’s GOTY than I was with Gabriela. AG did a MUCH better job this time around, and I am very, very pleased.

All pictures are from American Girl.


First of all, let’s talk about the doll itself. I like her face mold. It seems a bit different from the standard AG face mold. Her eyes are beautiful, as well as her hair. It’s so glossy and I love the side bangs! And the purple . . . LOVE THE PURPLE. In case you don’t know already, purple is my favorite color. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I don’t totally love her necklace, and her shoes are okay. But her dress is ADORABLE. I AM IN LOVE WITH IT!!!! I like the length as some AG dresses are a bit short. But when I saw Luciana’s meet dress, I was like, “Ahhh! It’s so cute!!!”

Note quite sure about the red bag. I don’t really care for it. I like her book cover, though.


Luciana’s visitor center accessories are pretty cool-looking. I like the doll-sized Nasa shirt. The bag is very detailed. The bookmark and pamphlet are adorable, as well as the passport. And I really like the book! The astronaut kind of freaks me out, though . . .


The robot dog. Hmm. I don’t love the pink (there seems to be a bit too much pink in this collection), but the dog is fitting for a space/technology-oriented doll. It doesn’t look like it’s very high quality, but it is pretty cool that it moves (plus the tail wags, which is awesome).


Luciana’s telescope and blanket are adorable. I don’t like how the telescope is pink. I feel like blue would have been a better choice. But the blanket is SO CUTE!!!! I’m not quite sure why they’re charging FORTY DOLLARS for this set. That seems outrageously overpriced, but then again, AG prices have been going up.


Luciana’s accessories are pretty neat. The backpack design is pretty cool. The smart watch looks cheap, even from the picture. The ice cream is awesome. Not much to say about the other accessories.


Her pajamas are ADORABLE!!! The shirt says “To the moon and back,” which is awesome. Β I like how it comes down further than most AG pajama tops. The pants are amazing. I don’t like the slippers very much, but overall I like it a lot!


I think this is totally adorable. Luciana looks so sweet in it!!! At first I was confused as to why a doll would have a space training suit, but then I realized that she goes to space camp so it makes sense. I think this is a really great outfit.


I don’t really care for the jacket in this outfit. Green is not a favorite color of mine, but I think the shoes and top are amazing. The shorts do not look like they are very high quality.


Her Mars habitat looks very, very detailed. But THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am outraged at this price. It is HUGE, for something this size. No way. It even looks plasticky from the picture. The stairs look like they would break instantly. The headset is cute, but no way am I getting this.

Overall, I think AG did a spectacular job with Luciana’s collection, except for the ridiuclous pricing and too much pink stuff. I would like to get Luciana, but . . . I don’t know.

What do you think of Luciana? I would love to chat in the comments!

  1. I LOVE YOUR NEW SIGN OFF!!!!! I LOVE LUCIANA!!!! I just did a post on my blog just like this one! I agree about the dog. I think that the dog looks really cheaply made, in my opinion. I LOVE Luciana’s meet outfit! The dress is my favorite!


  2. Cute sign-off! I think Luciana is cute, but, I will most likely not be getting her, due to the fact that she looks a lot like one of my current dolls, Meagan. She also, looks a lot like #66, but I don’t really have a problem with that since #66 is not a part of my collection right now. I would have totally wanted her if I didn’t have Meagan though. :/ I guess Meagan could have a twin… πŸ˜‰ I really like Luciana’s collection too. I think that her pj’s look more like a normal outfit though, but that might actually be a good thing, since it’s kind of like a two in one outfit! Overall, I think Luciana Vega is a great GOTY!

      1. XD She does! That’s really a coincidence! Well…let me know if you get her.. because that will mean that Meagan has a long lost twin from outerspace…Maygan! XD

  3. Why is having pink in her collection an issue?
    We live in a world where there is only one “correct” way to think of girls. That way is to think of girls as being the same as boys. But you and I both know that boys and girls are different. Whether society wants to accept it or not, there are plenty of girls who like pink, princesses, puppies and pies. I’m not one myself, but I know several. Just because Luciana’s collection has a theme that’s usually a male dominated field doesn’t mean that everything has to look like it comes out of a museum. I personally think the pink telescope and the other things like it are fun and appealing. If it’s an exact replica of a telescope you’re looking for, then eBay or Etsy would be a good place to look. I think Luciana is a great character and that her collection, though pricey, is well rounded.

    1. I agree that pink isn’t an issue. I do like pink and I am mostly a girly-girl. I just feel like the collection would be more “realistic” if there was less pink stuff. The pink stuff is cute, though! Thanks for sharing your opinion. πŸ˜‰


      1. Well, sometimes realistic is great, and sometimes it appeals better to the target audience (8 – 12 year old girls) when things are…pink πŸ˜‰ Thanks for being open to opinion!

  4. I love Luciana! Much better than Gabriella. *fights the urge to rant* I especially love that she’s interested in science. That’s something new! And that AG didn’t end to GOTY line! Woo hoo!
    Luciana is adorable, I love her hair! My favorite item, (excluding Luciana herself), may be either her PJ’s or her space outfit from space camp. (I don’t remember what it’s called. πŸ˜‚)
    I really like your new sign off!

  5. I like your new blog design and sign off! I like Luciana, but I have #66, so I was a bit disappointed that AG recycled another truly me doll a year after Gabriela. Anyway, I think her collection and personality are very creative and unique. I know there’s never been a GOTY that wants to go to space. I really like her meet dress, so I’m hoping they sell it separately.
