Elizabeth Confirmed!

Yes, it's true--there definitely WILL be an Elizabeth Cole doll this fall, along with a new book entitled Very Funny, Elizabeth, written by Valerie Tripp! Some of our members have gotten early details on the Elizabeth collection (info subject to change without warning), and it seems the collection will include furniture as well as outifts, and Felicity will get some new clothes too. There is even a possibility that more retired Felicity items will be re-released. Elizabeth is scheduled for an August/September launch, but her book is already available for pre-order on
