July 6, 2018 / The Ten Year Anniversary of the AG Wiki!
Today marks the tenth year of the American Girl Wiki. So much has happened since the wiki was founded with one person coding character pages and a hope that information about American Girl could be more than what was found on solo sites focused primarily on only the items to buy.
We've seen the release of multiple Historical characters--Rebecca, Cecile and Marie Grace, Caroline, Maryellen, Melody, and Nanea. There's been retirements and later returns of some of the Historical Characters, and the termination of the Best Friends Line. There were major changes to Bitty Baby, and the eventual fading of the Bitty Twins. There's been multiple Girls of the Year, including our first ever Black and Hawaiian moderns, and second Latina character--as well as the Contemporary Line. There's been the revamp of the Historical line into BeForever. There's the release of the WelliWishers, one of the second lines to focus on the elementary kids. Create Your Own allows for customized dolls for the first time in the line's history--as well as the first ever official boy dolls. Multiple stores have opened across the nation, as well as stores outside of the US. A*G Rewards launched.
And Truly Me's gone through about three names--and yes, since category changes are hard, we still call the category by a name several years out of date. Edits' whatcha gonna do.
Good job, everyone who's ever contributed positively to the Wiki. I'm thankful for my admins, the people who add data on products and characters and books plots (and help during full product launches!) and to everyone who's ever even just fixed a problematic typo. And even if you just come across the Wiki in a search and are just glad to have more information (or how to identify your old childhood outfits), then please keep coming back! Let's keep it going as the years go on.
American Girl will be opening a new outlet store at the Tanger Outlets in Derry Township (Near Hershey, PA) this summer. The 2,200 square-foot store will open sometime in August. Source The store will focus on selling discontinued and retired items. The last outlet store (located in Oshkosh, WI) closed July 27, 2016.
Kit's Gardening outfit is the third outfit in her collection that has centered around overalls. In the 1930s, overalls were not considered proper public wear for girls; they still had to wear dresses or skirts to places like school.
