New AGT & Bitty Baby Items

The latest AG catalog features some new items! The American Girl Today line received a heart print PJ's and backpack set, a warm-up outfit and mat, Coconut's Cupid accessories, and some matching clothes items for girls. Enhancing the Bitty Baby line is a new Heart-to-Heart Valentine set including a candy box tic-tac-toe game and Cupid accessories for Bitty Bear. There's also a new Bitty Froggy. In addition to the catalog, you can also check out the American Girl online store for pictures.

Rumors on the 2004 dolls

In addition to the rumor of a new doll named Tasha coming in 2004, now we have rumors that there are open trademarks on the name Rebecca. In addition, we've been told we might want to look out for a Nellie doll as well. An unnamed source says the focus of 2004 will be the historical line. I think it's going to be an exciting year!
