KANANI IS HERE!!!!!!!! January 1, 2011

Filed under: GOTY 2011,Kanani!!!!,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 2:15 AM

Haha my friend and I are so psyched right now!!!!! We are on the updated (or should I say Kanani-ied) AG site and it is AWESOME! We are actually acting pretty crazy singing “Oooka ooka ooka ooka booka ooka Kanani!” LOL. We’ve already sent 3 Kanani and Me ecards each! They are pretty awesome and did you know everytime you send one, you get an automatic chance to win a Kanani Doll and book? Abby and I were saying it would have been a good idea to have a Kanani sweepstakes and send a family to Hawaii. Oh well, winning a free doll is pretty awesome too. 😉 Here are some slides and pics from the site (NONE OF THE PICS BELONG TO US! ALL PICTURES BELONG TO AG! NO COPYRIGHT INTENDED)!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!! Yep, it’s officially 2011!!!!!!!!!!! YAYAYAYAYAYA! My BFF Abby (you may know her as pepperlot, Abby@CCGA) spent the night tonight and we aren’t planning on going to bed anytime soon! Haha! We gathered in my mom and dad’s room and watched the ball drop. Then, when 2011 hit, we opened a bottle of sparkling grape juice and gave New Years cheers! Then, of course, we went outside and banged pots and pans. LOL. Then I had the crazy idea to get out the iHome (the thing you plug music into to make it loud) , plug it in outside, and play loud music! Hahaha we are so dorky but it was fun anyway. Now we are waiting for AG, who is as slow as an old man, to update their site! Yay! My dolls are excited, too. They had fun eating cake and watching the ball drop! 😉
Well, Lanie now feels like old news. Melanie and Rebecca (Abby’s dolls) are trying to cheer her up, but inside they are praying that Abby will decide to get Kanani. XD

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!

 

KANANI BOOK COVERS!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!!! GOTY 2011 REVEALED! December 13, 2010

Filed under: GOTY 2011,Kanani!!!!,TOP SECRET,Videos,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 8:36 PM

TITLE SAYS IT ALL! KANANI IS “HERE”- AND THAT’S FOR A FACT!
*******************BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS BREAKING NEWS*********************************

Right now I am pretty ECSTATIC and have not done much research, but apparently AG has “released” Kanani! I’m still trying to search where these slides have been found, and it looks like they are neither on the official site or the publishing site, but I’m still looking!!!!! Here’s a video of some more pics and slides!!!!

Based on this video, it looks like AG is also planning to release a new Julie Mystery, 2 new Rebecca mysteries, two new Innerstar U books (one looks like soccer-themed one called “The Winning Goal”, and the other looks like a ballet one…. “Into the Spotlight”? “Paper Shaper”, “Oodles of Sweet Things”, Felicity and Josefina paper doll sets, a book called “Lend a Hand (looks like the “Friends: Making Them and Keeping Them” book released with Chrissa), and “Oodles of Ocean Creatures”(I found this on another video). I’m so excited! She is beautiful with long, wavy brown hair with highlights, almond-shaped eyes, and medium skin. I gotta see what she looks like as a doll before I consider getting her, But I am DEFINITELY reading the books and can’t wait for her debut and collection!

Her meet outfit looks like a blue dress, a flower beret, and a bead necklace!!!!! Yay!!!!!! Yay for Kanani!!!! Here is some info on her books:

On 11-1-10, AG made its first public mention (although not by name) of the coming GOTY in the online store events section. Events scheduled at all stores on January 1 2011 celebrate the debut of this character: “Don’t miss the debut of our newest Girl of the Year—she loves to share the spirit of her tropical island home. Your girl can be among the first to learn about this new character’s world. Join us all weekend long for dancing, crafts, free giveaways, and more.”

Girl of the Year 2011 NAME, BOOKS, AND DESCRIPTION!!!! October 26, 2010

Filed under: GOTY 2011,TOP SECRET,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 2:01 PM

OH MY GOODNESS! Thanks to a reader on doll diaries, the GOTY 2011’s name was discovered!!!!!!!!!!

Her name will be Kanani, and the titles of her first book is said to be “Aloha Kanani!”! ISN’T THIS AWESOME!?!? SHE WILL BE HAWAIIAN! Itching to know what the book description is?!?!?!? Well, it is here too!

Found on Whitcoulls.com:

Girl of the Year 2011 Book 1:
“Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) loves living in a beautiful tropical island setting and she especially loves sharing the wonders of her island home with visitors. So when her cousin from New York comes to stay for a month, she is excited to get to know her. But no matter what she does to help her cousin feel at home, it seems to only her unhappy instead. Can Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) find a way to connect with her cousin?”

My opinion: Hmmm…..  I love a Hawaiian girl, but her first story seems a tad bit stale, to me. But I’m sure that our new girl will make herself home at American Girl and her story will be a great one! 🙂

Already excited for the next book? Well guess what, we have it too! It’s said to called “Good Job Kanani!”, but some book websites don’t have this information yet. Here’s the description which can be found at “Langton Info Services, England.com”:

“Girl of the Year 2011 Book 2:
Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) is excited about selling shaved ice to raise money for a cause she cares about. But she also cares about her best friend-and promised they would take surfing lessons together. When Our Girl of the Year can’t make time for her best friend, their friendship begins to unravel, and she finds herself spending summer days alone. Will Our Girl of the Year (Kanani) make things right?”

My Opinion: “This one sounds sounds interesting to me! I think I will like Kanani!”

You may not believe it, but when I was younger, before I got into AG, I was a Lilo & Stitch FANATIC. I had a Stitch stuffed animal who I loved,  wanted a Lilo-and-Stitch room, and even got mad at Disney when they didn’t promote them enough! LOL! If they had came out with this doll when I was at the age, I would have begged for her! Heehee. This doll definitely reminds me of Lilo, and I bet she’ll look like her too. Maybe I’ll have to make that her middle name if I get her, bringing back some young memories. 😉
