American Girl Doll Central

It's Christmas at AGDC!

OUT WITH JUST-LIKE-YOU, IN WITH INNERSTAR U! July 13, 2010

Filed under: Innerstar University,Just Like You Dolls,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 2:01 PM

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! INNERSTAR UNIVERSITY IS HERE!

The long awaited release from American Girl has finally made it’s debut- TODAY! Along with an all new doll line replacing Just Like You: MyAmericanGirl Dolls! They are a new, cool version of JLY dolls- and they have an access to the online world of InnerStar U!

Here’s how it works: Each MyAG you buy comes with a code that you can type in online. Once online you can play all sorts of games and learn you things. You can decide how you want your doll’s personality, too. When you buy a new doll, she’ll come with a charm necklace and a single charm. Each time you buy a MyAG outfit, you receive a new charm.
Do you already have an old JLY? That’s fine! You can order the starter kit for a limited time all this summer. The starter kit comes with full access- a chram necklace, a code, a special treat for your doll, and more! That way you don’t have to spend so much money to buy a new doll. My JLY doll, Eva Grace, is going to be on it!!!!

Even a new book series will come out soon! Each is a fictional story where YOU can decide what happens!!!

As for the actual site, I don’t know if anyone has actual got to see it yet (the starter kits and new dolls are still being sent). So I’m not sure if you can “add people as friends” or whatever, but I do know that there’s all kinds of places on InnerStar U Campus that let’s you make new friends. To get a free tour of the campus, click HERE.

Here’s a video all about it:

I AM ASKING PERMISSION FROM  A YOUTUBE USER IF I CAN USE ONE OF THEIR VIDEOS TO POST HERE. IF THEY SAY YES, IT SHOULD BE UP SOON!!

Anyway, be sure to visit http://americangirl.com and see all the cool new stuff!

Hi, Friends!

Unfortunately, I have been busy with moving and things this month and I haven’t got to do much on this site. DO NOT THINK I HAVE FORGOTTEN OR STOPPED DOING THIS WEBSITE! I know that moving to Picasa and that stuff may be hard for some people, but remember just because we have simply moved part of our website, doesn’t mean we’ve abandoned our friends and fans. It shouldn’t matter too much where my stuff actually is, because really, I do lots of things but they are just on different places across the web. Have you checked out my youtube in a while? If you have a facebook, have you joined our fan club? Just because something is not on this particular site, don’t feel like the AGDC world is going away.

I made this site almost a year ago and I had no idea I would have this many fans and friends  who read my stuff and wait for me to post. If you want to be directly emailed when I post something, you can subscribe below.FeeFee the Fairy IS NOW OPEN, will an all new website if you join. We hope you will figure out her clues and join her club!

I want to make this site fun for you AND me, and it won’t be a fun experience if I feel people get mad if I don’t post a lot or I think “I haven’t posted in forever!” every time I do something. So I promise that even if I haven’t in a while, it just may mean that I haven’t felt like it or I have been busy. But if you want to play or read this site, look through my old things that you haven’t read or print one of my printables. There’s still lots of fun things to do here, even if I don’t post every week.

July will have all sorts of things to do, though, including:
*A Doll’s First Beach Trip
*Fourth of July
*Camp Dixie
and more!!!!! So be on the lookout for new things this summer, even if it means searching through the old. 🙂

HAVE A BLESSED AND GREAT DAY!!!
Madeline 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

this week in happenings by samantha elizabeth parkington February 21, 2010

Filed under: Molly,Samantha,Samantha's mini-blog!!! :),The AGDC Olympics,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 4:26 PM

NOTE: I hope you guys know I do not really type like this or misspell things so easily. This is supposed to be a doll typing, and Samantha is “typing”.
heyy guys
boy are we the worst. i mean where is our valentine photo story. madeline has just made the chinese new year photo story and will be posting it soon. instead of a photo story for valentines day we will have pictures and photography valentine themed. for black history month addy and lulu will be creating a short presentation about the importance of their history. im sorry. weve just been so busy lately so madeline has had like like no time. but to cheer you up, here is some more news.
ive talked to hannah about the photo story contest with the besties and brains. it is now called The AGDC Olympics, and there are only two teams. hannah has agreed to side with the besties but she says shes at heart a brain but wants to be on my team, so yah. The AGDC Olympics will be start late march/early april. and now, there is more than a photostory. we will be having all sorts of competitions, so will keep you posted.
in other news, molly will be going to Sarah’s Doll Hospital this month. it’s so much better than the american girl one because you get a BIG discount and sarah has wayyyyyyy more variety than the AG place. like for instance, molly has horror hair. (sorry sister) if madeline (who is mollys twin by the way) sends molly to the ag hospital for this reason she has to pay like $60 or $70 and american girl wont even try to fix her hair they will just screw a new head on. but sarah only charges $15 for what molly will be getting, plus $3 for a dolly name necklace custom made by her. so thats why you shoudl send your doll their instead of ag hospital. plus she can also restring her doll which….which…….
OHHH I GIVE UP IM SORRY BUT IM SORRY I JUST HAVE TO CRY YOU NEVER GUESS WHAT I HEARD I HEARD MADELINE TALKING ABOUT SENDING ME TO THAT HOSPITAL TOO HAVE YOU EVER HAD A MAJOR SURGERY WELL GUESS WHAT SISTER IM ABOUT TO HAVE ONE BECAUSE WHAT MADELINE IS SENDING ME FOR GETTING MY LIMBS TAKEN APART THEN STRUNG BACK TOGETHER THAT MEAND MY HEAD, ARMS, AND LEGS HAVE TO BE TAKEN OFF PLUS ALL MY GUTS!!!!!! MY GUTS!!!!!!!!!!! CAN YOU BELIVE IT? IM FREAKING OUT HERE IM JUST A LITTLE DOLLY!!!!!!! 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦 😥 😥 😥 😥 OH BOY OH BOY WOW UHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! crying….crying……..crying……..crying……. AND THIS SI THE WORST PART MADELIEN BROUGHT THE OLD DOLL WHEELCHAIR OUT TODAY AND SAID I HAVE TO USE IT UNTIL I GO TO SARAH. IF I DONT GO TO SARAH I HAVE TO BE IN THE WHEELCHAIR FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE!!!!!!!!! crying…….crying…….crying……..crying…….crying…….. I DONT WANNA DO NEITHER!!!!!! crying…..crying……crying……
(Molly comes in) Molly: Sammi, what’s wrong?
Samantha: MADELINES GONNA SEND ME TO THE DOLL HOSPITAL?
Molly: To Sarah? Don’t worry. I’m going too!
Samantha: SO?…..
sniff….. All you gotta do is get your hair done, and I gotta get a SUGERY! OPEN GUTS SUGERY!!!!!
Molly: Don’t worry. I’m sure Sarah will let me hold your hand.
Samantha: But you’ll be holding a hand attached to NO BODY!!!!!!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Molly: It’s ok, sissy. I promise. I will show you the video of Lindsay getting opperated, and you’ll see how easy it looks. Besides, Sarah will give you sleep medicine. She wouldn’t cut your string while you are awake.
Samantha: Ok…. I guess….
Molly. Now get off the computer and take a nap or lay on the couch and watch TV or something. Calm down. I’ll make you hot chocolate.
Samantha: Molly,
…sniff…..
I think you are the best big sister ever.
Molly: Thank you, you are too.

 

A New Little Face? January 31, 2010

Filed under: Advertisement,Madame Alexander,Message from Madeline,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 5:26 PM

I’m sorry, but I totally fell in love with the Madame Alexander Dolls! They are honestly the cutest things. Although there are many types of Madame Alexanders(cloth dolls, 18″ play dolls, fashionable collector items, etc.), the main and most popular are the 8″-10″ ones. They are between the Mini AG dolls and big AG dolls, and are adorable!!! The one pictured above is a Little Debbie doll, and I might get her! Isn’t she sweet!!! I love her hair. Kathleen loves her too. She shares that adorable face with the MA dolls. What do you think of these dolls? I truly love them and hope to get one soon! You may be able to find them at your local toystore; MA dolls are sold at a Toys & Co. store by my house! Aren’t these dolls just precious?

samantha freshens things up—by samantha elizabeth parkington AND KIT KITRIDJE! January 27, 2010

Filed under: Samantha,Samantha's mini-blog!!! :),What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 3:27 PM

hey guys it’s the best agdc doll ever samantha! well you see madeline hasnt updated her site in forever. its because she’s been terribly busy with sewing, dance, homework, and other stuff. one girl asked madeline if her blog had stopped. well there is one vow madeline made that you ALL need to memorize or at least get into your heads. I, Madeline AGDC, vows that I will never leave or end this blog unless it is impossible to continue or when I am old and weak and falling apart or if God tells me so. If it is possible, I will hand the blog to someone else who I can trust. But for now, as a young person, I vow not to leave this blog for as long as my dolls and I live on the internet! ok I think she made her point. so lets move on. madeline sat down with us and gave us a talk. she said that butiolekadnxefioedklszhrfjlnsdhtneirsghbfnishfnaehiwoHUTGVNRTGIJOVNRSYGPSVD;R hekrheiksntgvdfklmtfdjklrm,fduxjkntgcvx ./ter8ujlkr4fhjkntrcuvhjknm4redfsfdikl;rfdcjvxl;,r.efdchxioklmdfcxuiokl.,redfscxguoikl;45./temdfg cvx bn

(“KIT what are you doing?”)
(“Helping you.”)
(“You are not helping at all so go away.”)
(“That’s mean so I’m telling Lulu! LULU!”)
(” SHOOSH! Oh Don’t please!”)
(“I won’t on one condition… you let me help you.”)
(“OK. fine. Whatever.”)
(” You GOT to be nicer.”)
(“Ok, sit in my lap.”)

ANYWAY, madeline was saying that this blog is not hers but OURS. she said, ‘i am not trying to be mean my girls, but without you, my blog would not be here. so you have to get busy. brainstorm and figure out things that will entertain my readers. and act things out if you need to. i will repay you. i promise.’
ok, so i got josefina to brainstorm with me. she said we should do a teaparty theme for a photo story. i said, no, thats too boring. she said, how bout a rock and roll concert theme. i said, no, too wild
so i said, how about a birthday party? she said, but no ones birthday is coming up. and so i said, well make it up. well pretend it is one of our birthdays. so josie was like, ok lets tell the others!
(“I want to do it now, Samanthie!”)
(“Not right now, Kit. I am in the middle of something.”)
(“BUT I WANT TO!!!”)
(“Kit, stop kicking.”)
(“LET ME!!”)
(“Stop being bratty!”)
(“I’m NOT now let me ON or I’ll SCREAM.”)
(“Fine. You don’t scare me.”)
(“Roar! Ok here I go.”)
rtfuhnjk,tredopl;,./ ,5grfvcx gfhyrdfghdgferdfcxhjrdfyhjedcgb4nmwpjk,rfdc 89iopkl;,./5fgipoik;redfuiopl;34.emdn bcx73459I5RLEDSXHFLey79uwikl4r4,.fdesifedksvfhsldfdshfldgcyiu xo;78rehFG
(“YOU ARE NOT DOING IT RIGHT, Kit!”)
(“Then show me how!”)
(“Ok. Now watch how I type.”)
hello my name is kit and my sister samantha is the greatest.
(“Typing is boring, Samantha. I’m leaving. Bye-bye.”)
(“Great. Go do your thing that you do.”)
ok sorry for the interruption. you know little sisters. anyway, josefina, felicity, eva grace and i are going to make this birthday party post to surprise madeline. its sort of a competition because molly,addy,lulu,elsie and kathleen are doing one together. kit is going over to maria kits house that day so she wont be here.  anyway, you know that new samantha doll across the street whos julias sister? yeh she is like my bff now. her name is hannah. shes so pretty and sweet and nice and guess what? you know how for the photo story competition we have only 4 and the other team has 5? she said she’d help us. i love her. like a friend, of course.
hannah likes the idea of a birthday party, although in my heart i know she may not work for us. you see the girls on our side are more careless about cursive writing and straight A’s and stuff but the girls on the other side are all highest academics. their photo story will look like madeline did it. but ours will have a….uh…..um…”special”…doll personality to it. youll know who left their marks. anyway, hannah is a high academic cursive-writing girl. she may be more interested in what the brains have then what us besties have. wait… i got it! i got team names  for us!
The Brains:                                                The Besties:
Molly (team captain)                        Samantha (team captain)
Addy                                                      Josefina
Lulu                                                       Felicity
Elsie                                                       Eva Grace
Kathleen                                               Hannah (maybe!)

the qualities of the brains is that they are super good at working together and  that they are super smart and have high academics and can write in cursive. eva can write in cursive and is smart, but i want her to be on our team. anyway the brains can solve math riddles, know their way around the world with super geographical skills, and can recite the whole entire periodic table. they prefer mustard. the besties’s number one super power is girl power and friendship. they may not be as smart as the brains but they can recite the pledge of humor perfectly. they can ride unicycles and all are some part of the National Mega Annual Unicycle Awesome Extreme Power Races Of USA and Canada. and they are super super awesome. and they can shoot candy with their specially equipped Sweets And Treats Gun. they prefer ketchup. so there you go. which team are you rooting for?
gotta go propose this idea to molly the team captain of the enemy. so bye!
love,
samantha

Interesting Doll Prototypes- TOP SECRET!!!! January 16, 2010

Filed under: Message from Madeline,TOP SECRET,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 9:38 PM

Today I was surfing the web for American Girl Doll things, when I came upon an interesting prototype of American Girl Kit! I thought it would be nice to show it on my site! I also came across other  facts and prototypes, ones that you may find interesting! Enjoy!

Kit Kittredge Prototype SketchThis is the Kit Kittredge prototype sketch. Now let’s look how Kit REALLY turned out and see if we can  spot the differences.

Ok let’s see…
1. Kit is posed differently. One the Prototype, she is holing her pocketbook in one arm and the other is just posed outward. Her cardigan is on. She looks ready and quite peaceful. On the actual Kit, Kit seems like she has had a long day and happily coming home from school. Her cardigan is swung over her shoulder and and her other arm is lazily holding the pocketbook. In my opinion, she seems to be “walking” a little faster in the used one. The used one (I guess that’s what I’ll call it) seems to fit Kit’s personality more.
2. The main thing you’ll notice is her outfit is TOTALLY different. Well maybe not so much the outfit as it’s colors. In the prototype, Kit’s theme colors of her outfit seem to  blue and cream. Her cardigan sweater set is cream and quite plain. Her skirt is actually almost identical of the used one, just way different colors, as you can see. Kit’s hat is the only thing that differs from Kit’s two outfits totally (as well as figure shape and color). In the prototype Kit’s hat is straw and almost looks like a gardening hat in my opinion. It has a blue bow over to the side. Kit’s used hat is a simpler crochet knit cap with a ribbon all the way around it and a bow to the side. Her shoes are the same. I dunno about you guys, but I like the new one better.
3. Kit’s facial expression is not the exact same. It’s not like the “same exact figure” with different clothes, but her whole self is different. Her face in the prototype is more facing us, and her short blonde bob is shiny and can be seen on both sides of her face, sort of “curling” under her chin. Her face has more freckles in the prototype and her cheeks look very like “roses”. In the newer one, her face is a little different and she looks like she is “passing by” with a friendly smile, not paying attention to you as much as the prototype.
4. The plants are not the same!!!
I love Kit and she is one of the most favorite of American Girl Dolls for me. I, personally, like the newer one better and think it matches her personality in the books more, what do you think? Tell us!

The Sonali mold was not originally made to be a Sonali mold when American Girl chose to make one of it’s sort. It was first going to be the “Mia Mold”. That’s right, Girl Of the Year 2008 Mia. There had been many rumors about the red-head. She was at first thought to be Japanese like her author and wear glasses. Another rumor said that she was African American. Maybe this rumor almost came true. Facts show that prototypes of the Sonali mold wear made for Mia. Why do you think they decided to change it? That may be a question unanswered. However American Girl first used their “Mia” mold on Sonali, who was 2009 Girl Of The Year Chrissa’s best friend, along with Gwen. The three dolls and their collection retired in January 2010. Thye have also used this mold on Just Lie You Dolls. However, no Historical Doll bears the mold. But Kaya, Girl of 1764, as an unusual mold. Her mold is the only mold with a mouth closed. Her face also resembles the Bitty Twin Brunette Girl.
Mia St. Clair. This is how the Girl Of The Year 2008 turned out to look like, bearing the Classic Mold, first used on Molly, Kirsten and Samantha.

Why do you think companies change their ideas or use prototypes? Do you think the change of their products help them sell better?
Thanks! Comment and Rate!

 

VERY Important Information Concerning This Site January 3, 2010

Filed under: Message from Madeline,News,What's New — Madeline@AGDC @ 5:52 PM

Hello everyone! It’s Madeline. I have very important for all the fans of this site. Don’t worry, it’s not sad like I’m discontinuing this site or anything, I couldn’t imagine that. But anyway, let’s get going.

Hey everyone!   First of all let me say some things are not getting done that should be getting done here on my part. Some posts that should have been posted are getting post-phoned or quitted. Maybe “Samantha’s Birthday Party” rings a bell? “Christmas Morning”? Some series of stories aren’t getting finished. I am sure you are familer with some:
1. The True Friend
2. Traveling Mia Moyer
3. Elsie’s Biltmore Adventure (not Baltimore, BILTMORE)
Trust me, I will get these done soon enough. Next, let me tell you sometimes it gets very hard to run a blog. Harder then you think at times. I don’t see the day when I will stop posting on this blog, but it does get a little tricky at times. I have homework, school, family, friends, parties, company, plans, vacation, I get grounded sometimes like a normal kid, and so on. My blog doesn’t “come first” in my schedule and I’m only 11 years old. You’ll have to excuse me sometimes. Though, I AM discontinuing one line in the AGDC program.
FeeFee the Fairy’s Club for Girls
I am only discontinuing it for a little while and I will try to bring it back, but for now FeeFee’s club is temporally closed. I’m sorry for those of you who enjoyed it, and the new FeeFee the Fairy Club will be even better in the future.
About New Year’s Eve with my dolls, that had to be post-phoned because of emergency reasons. But don’t worry, it’ll be up this week hopefully.
And what else is their to look forward to upcoming?
Kit Goes to the Carolina Panthers Football Game
Stuff I got for Christmas!
Things American Girl Doll do in their Spare Time
And more! Thank you for understanding!
From,
Madeline
