Como estas, friends?
Happy New Year!
Happy New GOTY Day!
Last night, or rather, this morning at 4:38 am we placed
an Isabelle item order through American Girl.
We wanted to order the Studio, but it was 'Sold Out' --
i.e. not stocked into the system yet.
So then we added all her clothing and accessories into the cart instead.
And her Funky Leggings said 'Unavailable.'
So they lost out on $275 and $12 from us.
And it is all available for ordering online now.
We'll order that stuff later, or buy it from the store.
But it was very disappointing not to be able to buy
what we wanted right on New Year's.
Obviously at 4:38 am, they still weren't ready for us to order stuff.
We are waiting to buy "Dramatic Arm Movement-Isabelle"
in an AG store.
Not sure when that will happen,
but we prefer to buy her in person.
With AG's tendency to make dolls with wonky eyes and flawed wigs,
we might as well buy the dolls in person, if possible.
And we want to make sure our Isabelle has those
dramatic arm movements down pat.
Though we aren't sure in what universe an AG doll can stand
like that successfully without falling over.
So we purchased all of Isabelle's clothing,
except the leggings and the meet outfit and accessories.
And we ordered her dance case and kitten.
Case may be useful for storage,
and we are intrigued by the headbands and slippers.
The kitten looks a bit too much like a stuffed toy, but oh well.
Maybe he'll just be a stuffed toy in our play universe.
We want to get the new tennis outfit,
but will probably buy it in person.
Despite the pink qualities it possesses, we love it because it reminds us of Oh Ha Ni's tennis outfits from one of our favorite Korean dramas, "Playful Kiss. ;-)
All of the pink=yuck Valentine's stuff will not being coming home with us.
Never. Never. Never.
Have to avert our eyes...
the new pink shoes will also not being coming here.
Maybe these heels will come home with us someday.
But for right now, we aren't sure what they would actually go with.
As far as Isabelle's Dance Barrrrrrrrre...
we aren't sure we need it.
Might be good props to have?
So maybe we'll buy it when we buy the Studio.
Overall, we like Isabelle's collection and
give it two thumbs up.
More on that later today. :-)
Did you order/purchase any of the
new American Girl items yet?
What is on your Wish List?
