Autumn 2012

Caroline is Here!

On September 4, American Girl released their newest historical character--beautiful, brave Caroline Abbott from 1812! I have read Caroline's books, which take place in Sackett's Harbor, NY, as the War of 1812 is just beginning, and I believe they are among AG's best! Her collection, too, is beautiful. She comes in a pretty pink Empire-waist gown (as was the style in 1812), and her collection includes an accessories set with a straw bonnet, top, and little drawstring purse; a skiff; a traveling gown with boots; a spencer jacket and hat; a traveling basket with accessories; a purple Christmas gown; an elegant table and chairs; a party treats & tableware set; a light blue birthday dress; a royal blue winter coat and hat; a set of skating accessories that includes boots, skates, and mittens; a cat named Inkpot; a canopy bed; a nightgown; and a three-piece parlor set with decorative accessories.

Girl of the Year 2013 Information

Doll Diaries has a page on what information we know about the GOTY 2013 so far here. The girl's name is Saige and she is from New Mexico. She likes horses and is trying to save her school's fine arts programs from cutbacks. According to information shared on the American Girl Fans Message Board, actress Jane Seymour has posted on her Facebook page that she is cast in an American Girl movie whose plot elements match the book summaries on Doll Diaries's page.
