American Girl has released a huge collection of new doll items today. Here are some pictures:

New Dolls!:

This is American Girl's 59th MAG Doll. She is $110 dollars without earrings. This doll is a lot like Just Like You / My American Girl 29 and Just Like You / My American Girl 57 combined. She has layered hair like MAG #29 and light skin like MAG #57. They both have brown hair and brown eyes, like this new doll. I think this was a good choice on AG's part, because there is a big demand for dolls with brown hair and eyes.

This is American Girl's 60th American Girl doll. She is $110 dollars without earrings. I really like this doll because she is practically like Just Like You / My American Girl 49. I've always wanted MAG #49 but according to reviews I was a bit scared of her hair and I didn't want to buy her and just mess it up. This version of MAG #49 is with light skin and layered hair. I must say bravo to American Girl on this! I love this doll, and who knows, she might make it into my collection someday.

Now moving on to New Clothing!:

This is the Flower Sweater & Skirt for Dolls. It's $30. I think it's cute but not worth $30. I like the skirt a lot. :D

This is the Striped Hoodie Outfit. It's also $30. I think AG's really catering to the modern fashionistas here with the "slim fit" jeans and converse-like shoes. That combination seems to be very popular now a days.

This is the School Days outfit. It's sold for $30. In my opinion this is the most hideous outfit in the new release I hate the green-blue-yellow combination and it's just so- plain. I would not buy this.

Finally, you can buy all the above outfits for $90 in the Mix and Match Outfit collection. If you buy them together, you get free accessories, an embroidered purse and a pair of sunglasses.

This is the Tropical Bloom outfit. It is $28. Personally, I love this outfit. I love the design on the tunic. The blue-greens add a fabulous touch.

About AG's new earrings and their prices.

A while back, I was surfing the American Girl website and searched for earrings! I had a mini heart attack when no MAG/JLY earrings showed up. I have been saving for the "I Love Sports" earrings set. But recently, American Girl released a new set of earrings, the "Fancy Earrings" set, as pictured below.

Like every other MAG/JLY earring set, this one comes with three doll earring studs and three doll earring dangles. The studs can be worn alone, or worn with a dangle attached. The dangles cannot be worn alone. It features white, blue, and gold studs, pearly white heart-shaped dangles, pale blue teardrop dangles w/ beads, and gold dangles that almost look like small hairbrush bristles! The price is $10. 

These are the "Fresh & Fun Earrings" set. It is meant to pair up with the "Fresh & Fun Outfit" for dolls. The butterfly dangles were offered in the previously sold "Everyday Play Earrings" set, but that set got retired. It comes with crystal-like silver, crystal-like red, and blue and yellow flower studs. The dangles are purple butterflies, red hearts, and gold rings adorned with a gold flower beads. The price is $10. 

It seems that AG has raised their prices once more! The majority of the previously offered earring sets were sold for $9 dollars. 

This "Pretty Party Earrings" set was sold in 2011 for $7. Though this earring set and the new "Fancy Earrings" set are very similar, I personally like these earrings better. Even for something so minor, the price has increase 3 full dollars. That might not seem like a lot, but imagine, those would be three good dollars that could be used for something else. 

I do not plan on buying any of these new sets, I don't think they're worth it. Even though I have not actually seen them in person, I am not too big of a fan. What do you think?
