January 2, 2020 / Disability and Language - New (Clarification) of Policy
Here at the A*G Wiki, we use the appropriate words for disabilities. Which is, in fact, disability or disabled. One of your admins is disabled. People with disabilities want to be called the terms they choose. Joss - as a character - is disabled. This is an appropriate term to use to discuss Joss; she is partially deaf or hard of hearing, and visibly disabled (as in, her disability is visible, not that she has a lack of visibility).
The term "disabled" is appropriate to use to refer to her as a character and a doll. "Cutesy" or covert language that tries to hide disability does not help people or show the actuality of their needs. Do not use cutesy or fluff language, nor condescending or rude language. This falls under our global rule of bigotry.

"It is okay to use words or phrases such as "disabled," "disability," or "people with disabilities" when talking about disability issues." Respectful Disability Language

This has now been clarified on the wiki under Disability and Language.

December 31, 2019 / Joss Kendrick, GotY 2020

Let's all cheer for Joss!

Source: Good Morning America, American Girl's 2020 Girl of the Year is First Doll with Hearing Loss
American Girl through Good Morning America has released information about the 2020 girl of the year, Joss Kendrick, who's a surfer and competitive cheerleader from southern California. Joss has hearing loss--fully deaf in one ear and partially in the other--and comes with a new, unique hearing aid. She also has a new face mold, the Joss Mold. AG worked with experts in hearing loss as well as portraying deaf characters; furthermore, they've also announced a $25,000 donation to support the work of the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA).
Items will be released on the website and in previews at stores starting today, December 31st.
It's a whole new new release in a new decade - but the rules remain the same. We want good information, proper descriptions, and good pictures of items in the collection. The admin block finger stays itchy, especially in those first days of a new release when people suddenly act like they can't read the rules.

December 29, 2019 / Banning for Leaks and Updates To The Rules
Please check updates to the Rumors, Leaks, and Hearsay rules. Specifically, that we do not accept YouTube reviewers or product hint videos as sources for upcoming product. Especially not for pictures. A screen cap is not a good picture source for products. In fact, it's a terrible one.
We still block for six months on the first offense. Even if we'll all know what's out in three days, that's not today, is it?

October 1, 2019 / The New Fall and Winter Release
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
  • Optional free Ear Piercing
  • Added on Hearing Aids
  • $5.00 AG Rewards certificate for future order for Rewards members

The Gift Trunk includes the following:

  • Choice of doll
  • One book related to doll
  • Choice of two play packs
  • Personalized letter to gift recipient with envelope
  • Optional free Ear Piercing
  • Added on Hearing Aids
  • Premium storage container
  • First-year wellness visit through American Girl Hospital
  • $10.00 AG Rewards certificate for future order for Rewards members
Both options come with free shipping and handling. Non-members must sign up within three days of purchase to be eligible for the Rewards Certificate.

On to the new things.
For Historical Characters:
For Truly Me:
Smart Girl's Guide Kits (these come with the book, items and a choice of one of six modern-dressed mini dolls):
For WellieWishers:
For Bitty Baby:

July 9th, 2019 / Changes to the AG Rewards program

Berry Level!

A new overhaul of the AG Rewards program launches today. The most prominent change is that each tier is reached by dollar amounts spent annually, not points accumulated per year.
Furthermore, each reward level will have its own unique annual reward certificate gift. Berry level members also will not have points expire as long as the level is maintained.
Until July 31st, the first purchase under the new rewards system will earn two times points on current levels.
More information is available on the article page, with full legal information available via reading the terms and conditions on the AG Rewards website.
