A lot of new items have released for American Girl across almost every line, and several changes have been implemented for purchasing.
One of the biggest changes is that the prices of dolls have dropped across the board. All 18" dolls are now $98. Truly Me dolls now come with the book Friends: Making Them and Keeping Them.
Furthermore, the Historical Characters have shed the BeForever branding. The new books for the first six characters to be revamped--Kaya, Rebecca, Nanea, Maryellen, Melody, and Julie--have illustrations (returned for Rebecca and Kaya, updated for Julie, and new for Melody, Maryellen, and Nanea) but are now abridged. Please see each book's article for details on what had been added or removed. Also, all pets have been revamped and now have button eyes.
A new gift option is available: the customized gift experience. With this a doll is selected--using a quiz about the recipient that narrows down options, but any doll may be ultimately selected--and then a Starter set or Gift Trunk may be purchased of varying cost.
The Starter Set includes the following:
Choice of doll
One book related to doll
Choice of one play pack
Personalized letter to gift recipient with envelope
Gold and Berry members of the AG Rewards program may pre-order the Nutcracker-themed Nutcracker Snow Queen Outfit and Nutcracker Prince and Clara Outfit Set, which are limited numbered sets of 10,000 and 5,000 respectively for 18" dolls. Preorders are open until July 31st. The sets will be shipped by August 16th and not be available outside of the pre-order before October 1st. There is a limit of three per customer.
