Saw this today — great to see the strides being made and to get away from "model" looks to real world dolls.

Which has always been true of American Girl dolls. Yeah, they're pricey, even more so once you include the accessories, but they've always been about "real" girls from different time periods, and pretty much historically accurate.

Now I'm waiting to see if AG will have any kind of event regarding this in New York City, particularly since they opened a new store there.

As mentioned in the article, all of the American Girl stores are hosting a debut event on Monday (Jan. 1)...
...where there will be science demonstrations, a Moon Phase craft, galaxy-inspired treats and a free Luciana doll t-shirt to take home.
