American Guy Dolls


After hosting Traveling JD for a while, our girls here thought that they'd like to have some brothers too. So I found these two AG dolls (formerly #21 and Samantha) and customized them to look like my real sons around age 11.

Meet Rosco and Charlie

We gave these to the boys at Christmas and they were very pleased to meet themselves in doll form. We also bought a few of the older GoT outfits that looked more boyish (they both are wearing genuine AG outfits in the picture above.)

So now we have too many AG dolls to take a group photo. There are 32 (18") American Girl (and Guy) dolls, 3 Bitty Twins, 2 Hopscotch Hill School girls, 1 Girl of Many Lands (Isabel) and 21 mini (6 1/2") American Girl Dolls here at AGRescue.

Traveling Dolls


I've had a couple of questions from readers about Traveling Dolls so I've made this entry to help explain things.


First, I'd like to take a minute to help explain what the Traveling Dolls are and why I don't post about them anymore. You see, the Travelers COME to my house. They aren't my dolls. They belong to other members of the doll forum. Their owners have decided that their dolls want to see the country (or the world) and send them out to different hosts for two or so weeks at a time. While the doll is staying with me I will post pictures of their activities while at my house. When they leave, I can't post any more about them because that's up to the next and subsequent hosts to post.

I miss JD, Kealoha, Meadow, Alex, Cordelia, Nora, Sadie and Toast, but they are either still traveling around visiting other states, or have gone home for a visit or permanently. You can read about some of those travelers on their own blogs which are linked on my side bar. Some of the travelers don't have their own blogs, so we can't keep up with them anymore. Ah, fun times with all of them.

Second, If you are an adult and a member of an AG Doll Collectors Club (such as AGPlaythings) you might be selected by a Traveling Doll owner to host his or her doll for a couple weeks. Most forums won't allow collectors under the age of 13 to join for legal reasons.

One word of caution also, owners don't normally send out their dolls to new members and never to those under 18. There are just too many problems that could arise in either case.

I hope this answers some of your questions and concerns about the Travelers.

Bitty Twins!


YAY! We finally have some boys in our American Girl collection! Yesterday my dh found a for-sale post on our local Craigslist for these precious Bitty Twin boys that were almost brand new and still in their box.


They even still have the new doll smell. Poor little guys needed a new home, so now they are welcome home by their 29 (18") sisters and one Bitty Twin, Dusty.

Meet Wayne and Garth, our newest members of AGRescue.

Gifts!


We had a gift swap on the doll forum that I belong to and I received my surprise package in the mail today.  Here are Maggie and Kaya with their new AG back-pack and a tray of fimo Christmas cookies!



Thanks, MrsMac and the WeeMacs!

Ready for Christmas!


Okay, so I guess I haven't updated in a while and someone (I won't mention any names) has repeatedly asked me to. So here's a couple of pictures of my girls getting ready for Christmas.

Some of the mini-girls decorating their tree.


The girls who actually have a Christmas outfit standing on the mantel being all festive.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
