ETA: American Girl has released a informational page about Molly McIntire. This originally included an image of what is plausibly the Beforever version of the Molly doll, which has been posted to the side; this was later removed and replaced with an image of the doll in the Classic outfit.
February 16, 2018 / AG Seattle and Scottsdale to Close Bistros to Casual Dining
A recent layoff of staff announced in January through American Girl has affected the American Girl Places at AG Seattle and AG Scottsdale. Basically, both bistros will close to regular dining reservations starting February 23rd. However, party hosting will remain available.
Two books listed as American Girl: Contemporary MG Series 3 by Erin Falligant have been listed on Amazon with a release date of June 2018. No information on the character or any potential product releases have been announced.
A new series by Crystal Velasquez, Forever Friends has appeared; it appears to be focusing on a group of girls who work with various animals, dominantly at an animal shelter. The first two are scheduled for April release, with the third in September.
Other new books include the activity books Doll STEM, an updated Doll Travel, Smart Girl's Guide: Sports and Fitness, and Smart Girl's Guide: Knowing What to Say.
A recent new user was banned indefinitely for massively spamming a link to an offsite page that had nothing to do with the Wiki project or information about the brand; it was clear the account was created for the sole purpose of spamming a link repeatedly to an offside petition.
The Administration--that's me, AkaiKaze, and Blakegripling ph--would like to remind all users that personal offsite links (including but not limited to personal blogs, petitions, Youtube channels, personal social media, forums, etc.) are limited to a user's personal pages in limited capacity. Article links should only link offsite for factual, informational purposes (such as the link showing a brand of eyes in the Eye Swapping article, the patterns information, an author's personal website on their article, or real-world examples of accessories) and will be vetted for relevance and removed if irrelevant.
Offsite links do not include sites such as Wikipedia--which is integrated into Wikia code and used as an additional cross-informational resource--Amazon or other retailers in news and informational links, news articles, or the American Girl direct social media sites for informational/confirmation purposes. However, do not link to the main site for most things such as games, product data, or informational data unless it is reliably liable to remain (such as the Archives). The AG website updates regularly and old data is removed frequently. (After all, the site has been up since 2000. It's gone through thousands of changes and removals, from games to characters to items.) It's the admin's call on what constitutes an unvetted off site spam link, and our word is final.
Any personal, unvetted, offsite links spammed or linked in articles that show blatant disregard for the purposes of the Wiki--as the spammer did--will result in blocks, up to and including a full ban. I normally wouldn't say anything about it because it's just drawing attention to bad behavior, but after reverting well over a hundred different articles that were spammed/damaged with this petition, I believe said spammer should be ashamed of themselves for their actions and wasting time and resources. They should have known better. Don't Do What Danny Banned Does.
January 5th, 2018 / AG St. Louis Location to Close
The American Girl Place location in Chesterfield Mall will be closing in February 2018. (source). American Girl is citing closing the store "based on the current challenges facing the mall property, which have adversely impacted our store's business." It is unknown if another Missouri location will open.
Notably, Luciana's Space Suit can only be purchased right now by AG Rewards members, until August. So if you can sign up, do it!
For Truly Me, new including the first boys for the line: #74, #75, #76, and #77. They have modified face molds from the original, so are not being classified as separate, and come in what we're calling the Truly Me Boy's Outfit. Other new things include:
