Pictures and Review of My American Girl #61



American Girl Doll #61


Ada has moved into our doll family with ease.  She fits right in here.


My American Girl Doll MYAG 61


Saige is (mostly) happy to have another red-head among the small friends.  Although she drops the fact that she was Girl of the Year 2013 into conversation a little more frequently then one would expect.


Ada & Saige


Did you notice that American Girl quietly raised the price of the My American Girl dolls to $115 , an increase of $5, during the Beforever launch?  I wasn’t surprised that the historical dolls increased to $115, given the overhaul of the line, but the MYAG dolls generally increase in price (if they are going to) at the beginning of the new year, so it was a little surprising to see a mid-year increase.    The last price increase for the dolls occurred on January 1, 2013, when the price went from $105 to $110.


Speaking of AG prices, today is the last day for free shipping at with a minimum $50 purchase. Enter code CELEBRATE at checkout.


The Maplelea free (or reduced by $9 for US customers) shipping code is also still valid through September 24.  Enter code FALL at checkout. AND,  I noticed over the weekend that the beautiful Saila doll has been restocked on Amazon!


I did a video review of My American Girl  #61 and compared her to Saige and doll #55 (Avery).  Avery and Ada have very similar wigs, with the obvious difference being the color.  There are more pictures of Ada and comparisons with Saige at the end of the video.

      Once upon a time I had an early Felicity in my collection that had similarly true red hair, but it wasn’t as.. shiny??? I kind of wish I still had her for comparison sake.

      Wendy, I visited your blog and think you did a fantastic job freckling Julia!! I have Saige, too, and since she’s a freckled red head, I’m okay with Ada being freckle-less. Congrats on your new doll-to-be and thank you for visiting and commenting!
