Some new items just came out sized for children in the Logo Shop:
The last two might have been out a while and just were not documented.
Furthermore, an IMDB page has released the information on Maryellen's Amazon special: Maryellen 1955: The Gift of Giving. This will be released on November 25th, starring Alyvia Alyn Lind.

Like Maryellen, Melody collections are available through Amazon. The following bundles are available:
Also added are the following new Amazon Collections for Maryellen:
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 purchases.
ETA: Furthermore, the Melody special Melody 1963: Love Has to Win will air on Amazon Prime Streaming starting on October 21st.

September 29, 2016 / American Girl and Kohl's
Somewhat old-ish news that somehow slipped beneath the radar - back on September 8, American Girl and Kohl's announced a partnership similar to what American Girl has done with Toys R Us as Kohl's will stock items from the WellieWishers line as well select items from Lea Clark's collection starting October 3:
Unlike the Toys R Us partnership, it appears there will not have any Kohl's-exclusive AG items nor will Kohl's carry items from any other product lines. (Source)

September 23, 2016 / Confirmation of Felicity Book Re-Release
The descriptions for the books A Stand for Independence, Love and Loyalty, and Gunpowder and Tea Cakes on Amazon's Canadian Site have confirmed by description that these are a re-release of the Central Series for Felicity Merriman and a journey book.
As of right now there is no confirmation by American Girl of any other rereleases for older archived characters, or a rerelease of Felicity's collection for the BeForever Line. No covers are visible yet, so we have no images of the updated look; however, it is likely the covers will be changed.

A sale for Truly Me dolls is available. Unlike prior sales, this one is able to be customized by customers, who may pick from:
  • Any Truly Me Doll
  • Any one "Special Extra" (various accessories in the $6-$16 price range such as shoes, hairbrushes and care kits, glasses, jewelry, hats, and purses)
  • Any two outfits from available Truly Me Outfits
Once all items are chosen, the entire collection is then discounted a flat 20%. This sale is through September 19th; the offer excludes any sale or discounted items.

August 31, 2016 / American Girl To Partner With Toys 'R Us; Shop-in-Shops Opening This Fall
A Mattel press release has announced that American Girl Products will be sold in Toys 'R Us stores across the United States. Toys 'R us will be the only U.S. retailer to have AG Shop-in-Shops in select stores outside of American girls shops and boutiques and the online store. (source)
The first line to be released includes WellieWishers dolls and accessories, beginning this weekend. Full shop-in-shops will open this fall and include exclusive selections of Truly Me items, outfits, and accessories as well as dolls. (It has not yet been stated if any dolls will be TRU Exclusives.) BeForever items and dolls will continue to only be available at the boutiques.
Until we have more details, please don't rumormonger. We don't like it and neither do you.

August 24, 2016 / Upcoming American Girl Books
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.
