New books have been listed on, due in 2017
For the BeForever Historical Character Mysteries:
Three new WellieWishers books:
Finally, three books that, at present, sound like a potential rerelease of Felicity Merriman's Central Series:
As of right now there is very little detail on the last three books, other than two are by Valerie Tripp; however, the titles seem to lean towards a focus on Felicity. ETA, 8/27/16: Additional information on the descriptions shows a release date of February 2017 as well as the category of "Colonial", helping this lean towards a rerelease of Felicity's Central Series stories.
Remember, we don't do Rumors, so don't cause trouble.

August 3, 2016 / AG Rewards Offer for Melody's AG Rewards Collection

Melody Preorder for AG Rewards members!

Customers that opted into AG Rewards before July 27th were, on August 1, offered a preorder to purchase Melody's AG Rewards Collection,, a unique starter collector for Melody Ellison costing $212. This includes the Melody Ellison doll along with the following items:
Items cannot be removed or adjusted online. The order has free shipping; furthermore, American Girl intends to ship orders in order to have the order arrive to purchasers on or before August 18th, a week before Melody's official debut on August 25th. (Purchases are only shipped and cannot be picked up in stores.) This is an offer only available to AG Rewards members that signed up before July 27th, and is only available through August 8th.
This does mean that there will be some people who will have Melody and some of her items before the official launch. However, quality doesn't change. Write well-written contributions for new or existing articles, give good detail pictures, and don't try to "first" this.

July 28, 2016 / AG Rewards

Welcome to A*G Rewards!

Several weeks late with the news, but: American Girl has started a rewards program, aptly named AG Rewards, that rewards customers for their purchases with rewards. The program is free to sign up for. At its most basic, every dollar spent (minus taxes and/or shipping) is a point added to the account with a $10 reward coupon issued after 200 points (so $200 of puchases). Other exclusive offers are given as higher levels of points are reached in a year: Silver (0-349); Gold (350-699), and Berry (700+).

More information can be found on the website at A*G Rewards; details will be placed on the Wiki later on.

July 12, 2016 / GOTY 2017, other book news
Amazon listings for Girl of the Year 2017 have appeared:
The author, Teresa E. Harris, is a woman of color and the books she has written have featured protagonists of color, so there is a possibility GOTY 2017 may be a girl of color.
There is a trio of books written by Kellen Hertz, who co-authored Lea and Camila with Lisa Yee:
The only information of note is that these three books appear to be targeting middle grade (ages 8-12) readers and seems to be an original series of contemporary fiction outside the GOTY line.
It bears repeating: this wiki has a zero-tolerance policy on rumors and speculation, and any form of rumormongering will get you banned.

June 23, 2016 / WellieWishers, Truly Me, and Melody
The WellieWishers make their debut with their collection. Here is a rundown of what's available:
To promote the line's debut, all WellieWisher items are eligible for free shipping from now until July 31st. Furthermore, purchasing a doll and any small accessory set has a $5 discount, like 18" dolls.
The WellieWishers' three books will be released in September, though you can read previews on the WellieWishers portal on
The Truly Me line got a lot of new stuff:
American Girl has also made it a little easier to purchase a bald doll on their online store, though you will still need to call their customer service department to start the process.
Bitty Baby got only two outfits:
The BeForever line got nothing, though Melody's second volume and My Journey Book is now available, which means you can now get Melody's 3-book set if you held out on the first volume (or trade in the first book against the cost, if you just couldn't wait). The doll and her collection will be released in August this year.
It also appears that the Bitty Twins are on their way to retirement as related outfits and accessories are gone and only the dolls remain purchasable at the time of this writing. ETA: It has been confirmed that the Bitty Twins are now retired. Fare thee well, Bitty Twins.
No matter how exciting it is to see new items from American Girl, the rules of the wiki are the same: write well-written contributions for new or existing articles, and if someone comes in and removes or edits your work, don't be a drama queen. We don't tolerate poor writing or behavior, and if something needs to be debated, use that article's talk page.
