July 24th, 2017 / More on the Create Your Own Line, including Launch Day
A video about the Create Your Own line has been released by American Girl on their YouTube channel. It shows some aspects of the online designer, as well as some of the possible combinations of tones and hairstyles. This has been updated in the article.
The line is scheduled to launch August 8th in flagship stores and online.

July 11, 2017 / Toys R Us Exclusive Wellie Wishers and the Create Your Own Line
Customline

Create Your Own

  • More information has come out about the Create Your Own line both online and through releasing catalogs. The line--unlike Truly Me--will allow purchasers to design and purchase custom dolls themselves. Very little has been released; the line will release fully at the end of July.
I will take this moment to reconfirm that we are a wiki about information on American Girl, not about personal product consumption, purchase, or creativity. We will not allow any unneeded images, articles, or wasteful data on a person's specific created dolls, and this does not change with the launch of the Create Your Own Line. Any articles or images that appear to be about about documenting anyone's collection (beyond information on personal information pages) are not done or allowed here. Blocks will be utilized if it becomes necessary.
Nethilia, The Admin, (who doesn't care how cute your pixie-cut doll with blue eyes is, she's not going on the page just to say you made her).
June 23, 2017 / AG Rewards Only Outfits for Truly Me and Bitty Baby, Upcoming TRU only WellieWishers Outfit, 18" Custom Line information, and a Reminder on Policy
AGRewardsOutfits2017

AG Rewards only outfits!

  • An upcoming WellieWishers outfit will be available as a Toys R Us Exclusive. Images have been seen but no name has been confirmed.

For $200 (with free shipping) a person may purchase a customized doll, customized outfit and accessory set, keepsake doll box, designed t-shirt, and a six month (three issue) subscription to American Girl Magazine.
  • The Administration here would also like to take this time to remind all users that we here at the A*G Wiki do not care if you are new to editing or excited about getting an article/image up first if it is poorly written or improperly done. You can and will be blocked for both violations for a minimum of a week. Read our Policies, because you will be subjected to them from moment one.

June 13, 2017 / New Historical Series
AGirlNamedHillary

A Girl Named Hillary: The True Story of Hillary Clinton

Two new series of books have popped up that will be under the American Girl Header.
The first is "Real Stories From My Time." These books are focused on actual events and occurrences that happen during a BeForever character's timeline. The first four books are:
Secondly is the "A Girl Named Series". These will be full-illustrated biographical books on the childhood and history of real historical women, mainly focused during their childhood. The first two known are:
  • A Girl Named Hillary: The childhood and life of Hillary Clinton, the first woman to be nominated for a major political party for president.
  • A Girl Named Rosa: The childhood and life of Rosa Parks, who became famous for protesting the segregation of the Montgomery Bus system in Alabama and made a name for herself during the start of the Black Civil Rights movements of the 1950s.
As usual, we strive for neutrality and respect here, as well as no rumor-monging about new characters, retirements, or designs.

May 22, 2017 / No More "Permapanties"
Noperms

No More Permapanties!

In what can be seen as a move similar to the history of New Coke and the Windows 8 start screen, American Girl has decided to discontinue the permanent underwear that had started to be released on Truly Me dolls (and would have been released on three of the BeForever Characters), following several weeks of fan backlash and complaint. This was officially announced on the American Girl Facebook page, along with information that the most recent "boutique-style" box design would be reinstated (though it will remain for Contemporary Characters and through some of the Truly Me dolls until stock is depleted).
Existing doll inventory with permanent sewn-in underwear will still be available in stores until stock runs out. Any customers who have previously purchased dolls with permanent underwear can opt to have their dolls reverted to the old body design with a one-time no-cost exchange through American Girl (instructions here).
