KANANI DOLL PICTURES!!!!!!!!! REAL! December 21, 2010

Filed under: GOTY 2011,Kanani!!!!,TOP SECRET,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 12:55 PM

You saw it here first! Video credits go to Juliesol73, thanks so much to her for finding these pics! VIDEO DOES NOT BELONG TO ME!

Yay for Kanani! I’m sure a lot of you are excited!!!! Here’s my opinion:

“She’s very pretty! It looks, though, as if they took Jess and Marisol and put them together. To be truthful, I’m not in love with her and not sure yet if I’m adding her to my collection. However, she’s super pretty and her hair is just gorgeous! Her collection is cute, especially the chair! I’m going to have to see close-up and good quality pics of the doll before I decide. I love the meet outfit!”

My opinion on the book summary (I obviously haven’t read the books yet!):

“I love the tropical, island-y theme, but her actual story……seems a little stale. I mean, seriously, AG can do better than that! The only reason I am interested to read the books is because, well, she’s the new GOTY! And, like, I said, I like her theme. And…it seems like AG is trying a little too hard.  I mean seriously, “shaved ice” and “a cousin from New York”? Sorry, but I think AG could do better if they tried harder and cared a little less about money and more about a good, adventurous story, like the one Jess had. Lanie’s book was on the bridge for me, it was just above “boring” but I enjoyed it. Let’s hope Kanani is the same!”

What do you think? Leave a comment down below! Also, I’m sure Juliesol73 would appreciate it if you commented on her video. She’s one of the first on Youtube to have pics of Kanani!

    A lot of people dislike Kanani for some reason,but I love her!(actually I love all the GOTY’s..but of well 😉 )I’m not trying to be mean or anyhting,but Kanani looks pretty unique to me. 🙂 I am probably getting her..although I agree with the “shave ice” and “cousin” from NY..a little corny AG!
    Over all,I think Kanani is okay,but I can’t wait to see her up close as well Madeline! 🙂

    • Erin Says:

      Sorry, I was confused. If you agree with shaved ice and the cousin in New York, how come you said “a little corny”?

    • Leigha Says:

      OMG! It is a little corny but still…she is a very pretty doll,my opinion.I’m about to get her soon but still come on do they really sell shaved ice in Hawaii?and a cousin from new york.Come on she could have been from across the world.AG just needs to think harder. But overall its a good doll.Nice video Madeline!

      • Madeline@AGDC Says:

        TOTALLY agree Leigha! Kanani’s a good doll, but her story is too laid-back and easy. Where are those adventure, be-true-to-yourself books AG used to publish?

  2. hannie96 Says:

    I think she’s SO adorable! I wonder where that girl got all the pics, that’s so cool!

  3. Sammie Says:

    Sheesh, Kanani has LONG hair! I like it, though. Thank you SO much, Madeline, for posting this!

  4. Amanda S. Says:

    Thanks SOOO much, Madeline, for posting this! You keep us all updated, and I’m SOOO happy to see the GOTY 2011! I want her a lot! Well, of course I also want Marisol, Nellie, Rebecca, and Emily. Oh, well. I’ll choose sooner or later! XD Thanks again!

    Kanani is ssssssssssssssooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!!! The Hawaiian theme is new and fresh. I read the book summaries and I am planning to buy them. American Girl makes every girl confident and always includes a good moral/lesson to their stories. I think the story that includes shaved ice will kind of bring the story together (Well, after all, shaved ice is famous in Hawaii). But, the NY cousin is kind of unecessary for her stories. My bday better come faster…hahaha

  7. – Omgg 😀 ; Its Kananii !!! (: , I ❤ Her So Muchh , Lollxd

    The first kanani book is actually very cool i got it from barnes and nobel. It’s very adventoues (sorry for bad grammer and spelling!) and fun.

  9. kanani Says:

  10. sophia Says:

    I have no idea what you’re saying!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kanani is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo gorgeous and cute and her books are wonderful. i think you should read the book first before you judge it.

    • Madeline@AGDC Says:

      Sophia, everyone has different opinions. I have read the book, and she is cute, I’m just saying, even though Kanani’s story was good, I think AG could have done a better story. That’s just my opinion, and I respect yours. 🙂

  11. Felicity Says:

    Madeline,I agree with you.(You too Sophia!)I love Kanani,and am getting her soon,she is cute,and i like the story.But as Madeline said,Rachel coming from New York is alittle off track.Why couldn’t she come from California or something close to Hawaii?

  12. sarah Says:

    That is not real her

  13. sarah Says:

    Is that real her or not

    • Madeline@AGDC Says:

      Yep! That is really her. But it came out like, a year ago. 😀 Kanani was available for an entire year, but she recently got sold out. Now we are waiting on McKenna.
