January 6, 2017 / Express Yourself with Gabriela / Gabriela's Meet Outfit Separate
Information on Gabby's craft book, Express Yourself With Gabriela, have released on American Girl's publishing site. Like previous craft books, this one contains various activities focused on Gabriela's theme; her extra accessory include a prop microphone and poetry journal. There is no release date yet.
In addition, Gabriela's Meet Outfit is being sold separately through American Girl for $28. Customers who show record of a purchase of Just Like You 46 within recent years are being mailed codes to receive the outfit for free. The code is redeemable until March 31st.
On Good Morning America, a reveal was made of the 2017 Girl of the Year, Gabriela McBride; it includes some items in her collection, her overall look and meet outfit, and some details on her personality and collection.
This can be considered an official outlet, and so some pages for Gabriela McBride have been created, including her book Gabriela and collection, but these pages will remain protected to prevent poor edits during a high-traffic time.
The covers and previews of Felicity's BeForever books are now available on the AG Publishing site. They show a new meet outfit--a blue dress with a yellow underskirt--and Felicity's Riding Habit and Hat. We've now included her in the BeForever tabs as a character, including her marking color (which appears to be retaining the dark green she had before). The books show a publishing date of March 2017.
We don't know a lot officially, but we still don't do leaks, and that includes eBay auctions for aftermarket things. We're watching y'all.
December 13, 2016 / Gabriela leaks, American Girl in the Middle East
Stock images from Gabriela's collection have leaked online that confirm she is, indeed, a GOTY of color. While we're all excited, we do not tolerate having leaked images on the wiki.
American Girl is opening its first store in the United Arab Emirates by partnering with Majid Al Futtaim, a shopping mall, retail, and leisure developer. Unlike the Specialty Boutiques in Canada and Mexico, the UAE store will feature an onsite restaurant, though whether this will be a café or a bistro is not stated. The store is scheduled to be opened in 2017. Source.
November 29th, 2016 / Information on Tenny Grant, Two Upcoming Compilation Books
Information from Chapters (The Canadian partner of American Girl) has released data on a Modern Contemporary character, as well as Catalist, which has offered an image of the character and her best friend, Jaya. Tenney Grant appears to be older than average characters (states she is in middle school) and from Nashville, Tennessee. This appears to be a wholly separate line from the Girls of the Year; however, until more information is confirmed, no data will be placed on the wiki.
Multiple holiday bundles have been released and are available until December 24th or until supplies last. These include bundles for BeForever characters and pajama bundles (these include a doll's outfit and child's matching pajamas) and are discounted from standard costs. Bundles for Truly Me and Bitty Baby are available until November 22.
As before there appear to be no discounts, but because of Amazon's free shipping offered after $50 of items, there are no shipping charges. Note that AG Rewards points cannot be earned on Amazon.com purchases.
