November 20th, 2017 / Rumors, Leaks, and Hearsay - Don't DO It!
It's the time of year where rumors about new products, especially new Girls of the Year, start leaking. And it's that time where people might be tempted to post unconfirmed details on characters that might be coming out. So the Administration is taking this moment to reiterate the policies against rumors, leaks, and hearsay.
American Girl is an active business with constant new items. There are regular releases, re-releases, new items, new characters, new books, and/or new details. This means that leaks happen often, especially when people obtain items early or off online auctions from secondhand sources. However, we here at the A*G Wiki has made it our policy to not allow any information on any topic from any non-legitimate sources. The only information we accept are from sources that can be verified.
Images, names, and descriptions of characters and products found through searches across the internet--even if they are likely legitimate direct stock images--that are posted by anyone other than AG or press releases by AG are not verified. Until AG themselves release the images or names, they are not verified. We here at the A*G Wiki respect the company enough not to show images or start articles about characters that they haven't openly released yet.
Violate this rule even once and you'll have a six-month block the first time. We're not going to play nice. Be patient or we'll make you be patient.
This year, as a reward to Berry Level Members of the AG Rewards programs, American Girl is offering a free outfit. Members must have achieved Berry Level by October 31, 2017. Users must log into their account or call Customer service and, using a unique code, may select from the following outfits:
The order must be placed from November 14 to November 30th. Only one outfit may be purchased for free per household per account. The order includes free shipping in the continental US (as long as not bundled with any other purchase). It is unknown if these outfits will be allowed for open purchase at a later time. The outfits cannot be returned or exchanged later.
(On another note we missed, Canadian users are no longer able to have AG Rewards accounts; Any non-US accounts were closed by Oct 9th.)
Truly Me Desk and School Set: Kitten Sweater, Playful Print Skirt, unique plastic headband, unique blue flats, unique denim backpack, unique version of the Flip-Top Desk (with chair), folder, two pencils, three sheets of lined notebook paper, two sheets of graph paper, protractor, two calendars, and times-tables sheet for $69.99.
Pet Sets: These three sets include a pet (the new Scottie Dog and rereleases of the (Preppy) Sheepdog and Gray Cat/Preppy Kitten). Each comes with the Friends Forever themed pet book, a collar, toy, and stickers and retails for $29.99.
October 3rd, 2017 / WellieWishers and Tenney-Themed Clothes at Kohl's; Costco Bundles
American Girl continues its partnership with Kohl's stores; specifically, selling items in Tenney's Collection (as well as Tenney and Logan dolls), WellieWishers (including dolls), some Truly Me outfits, and some books and MegaConstrux sets. Kohl's-only matching pajama sets for children have been made available in recent weeks: two styles of legging-and-tee sets, two styles of pajamas, three sets of gowns, and two styles of robes. These each come with matching 18" size doll pajamas.
Also available only at Kohl's are some WellieWishers outfits: two sets of pajamas (names to be confirmed) and the Sparkling Snowflakes Outfit.
With the approach of the holiday season, Costco has released some bundles: along with last year's Sleepover Set, they have released a Salon and Spa Set for $39.99. Other bundles have not been confirmed.
The books are due for a release in February 2018. While this, like Felicity, is a portent of a potential rerelease of the Molly doll and her inclusion in BeForever, we don't want to speculate before any official announcements.
As books are released and series are connected and more is revealed, we will give more information.
Administration Note: "Vanity Articles"are now a legitimate reason for a page or file to be removed and/or users to be blocked for a length of time. Remember that this wiki is not about anyone's personal relations to a character, their resemblance to any dolls, or any personal characters created.
Designed can be stored with an active account on the website. Orders can be placed at any time, but custom dolls that use components that are not available will be placed on back order and not shipped until created. Backorders are listed as far as November for delivery.

August 1, 2017 / Nanea Mitchell Pre-Release for Rewards Members
Like Melody Ellison last year, a pre-release for Nanea Mitchell has come out for AG Rewards members, "Nanea's AG Rewards Collection." However, this year the offer is exclusive to members that have reached at least the Gold Rewards Tier.
This collection, costing $216, consists of the following:
This bundle is delivered in a special AG Rewards box (much like Melody's) and can also be obtained at an American Girl Place if a person can prove their reward tier level to a personal assistant. Shipped orders have free shipping and will arrive before August 18th, a week before Nanea's official release on August 24th. The offer is only until August 7th.
Just like Melody before her, this does mean that there will be some people who will have Nanea and some of her items before the official launch. However, quality here doesn't change. Write well-written contributions for new or existing articles, give good detail pictures, and don't try to "first" this.
Nanea Mitchell is the newest BeForever character, representing Hawaii during World War II and the bombing of Pearl Harbor--an aspect never covered before by American Girl. She also has a new facemold never used before--the Nanea Mold!
