A Few Saige Reviews and More Official Pictures

American Girl Saige GOTY 2013

Saige has officially been announced as the American Girl of the Year for 2013 as this photo was posted on the American Girl Facebook page and her books are for sale in stores now, too. The media embargo (the date media and invited bloggers can release the info that American Girl provided them with) date must have been today because all of sudden YouTube video reviews, posts on some the Mommy Blogger sites and news articles have appeared. Here are a few of them – some have video, some have stock photos and some have photos they took themselves.

American Girl Saige Art Set

Saige and her art set. I do like this outfit and the set is very cute too.

American Girl Saige Hot Air Balloon

Saige and her hot air balloon – I am really interested in seeing how big this set is in real life. Like I have said before, I am not a fan of this outfit, but Natalie loves it so we will most likely get it.

American Girl Saige and Picasso

Saige and her horse Picasso. I am not crazy about her horse, but I do like the outfit she is wearing – specifically her boots.

We will be visiting the American Girl store on New Year’s Day to see Saige and her collection for ourselves. Something tells me she is going to be following us home…

  1. please

  2. Oh no Venus, I shouldn’t have told you that was ok! *walks into Venus’s house, sees Venus on the floor, and dumps a bucket of ice-cold water on her face*

  3. @Paige
    My AG dolls’ Dad: Thank you, fellow Doll Diarian. You see, my future wife tends to be a bit… loony nutty. 😛

  4. Uh, Jerry the computer mouse is eating my comments again… Fine, Jerry, how about a cheesecake to make you like me a little? >_>
    Made with real cheddar cheese! ;D

  5. Rembrandtn Really????? I’m glad Saige’s dog is named Sam.
    @ Naomi, he is a border collie. I pride myself in knowing anything and everything dog related (having two dogs of my own helps
    I am also an AG historian, Having collected them since 2000. Ask me any question either AG or dog related. and I will answer it ($99 a question LOL) Hey gotta get money somehow. But I already have enough 4 her WHOLE collection, but only thing I will NOT buy ;0

  6. Saige is very pretty I love her outfits . Im going to get her books soon at target they sell the books WAY early

  7. Random question: Why are people upset about their comments going into moderation?

  8. I don’t know why my name has a link to a book on eBay.Does anyone know why.

  9. @Jenny I shall answer for the silent moderator knights of the Doll Diaries Castle! 😀
    It’s because when you post a comment and it goes into moderation, no one else can see it until the Char Seal of Approval is placed by Jerry the computer mouse. Sometimes, the moderators take too long in determining whether or not the comment is deemed appropriate for Doll Diaries. Therefore, if you reply to someone else’s comment, for example, that person will not be able to see your reply until it’s approved. And sometimes, you would rather have that person read and reply back as quickly as possible. 😉

  10. And then, if Jerry the computer mouse does not approve of your comment, he eats it, therefore not letting it appear on the Doll Diaries entries at the Doll House. 😉

  11. Rembrandt is a famous artist. Fits with Mimi’s theme of artist names – Pablo Picaso & Goergia O’Keefe.

  12. @Dakota, I also have 2 dogs and like learning about AG. I would love to be friends with you and Venus. :)
    So here are my questions, though sadly I am broke: In the catalog, does it list the dog as Rembrandt or Sam? It may be that I am having a stupid moment, but I am confused. Also, what are Saige’s outfits/sets named? I am writing up my January shopping list and I need something a little more descriptive than “pink dress.”

  13. @lena I knew that, but still think the name is wierd. I’m not mad about moderating comments, I did so on my own blog( till it was hacked) I believe comments SHOULD be moderated.

  14. He is named sam

  15. The saddle on the horse is not correct the girth or in her case the cinch to far back it is on the flank and will create a bucking strap causing the horse to buck uncontrollably

  16. Saige, Saige, Saige……Over the summer I’m going to agplaces Dallas, and am planning to get MAG 33. Who knows, maybe this beauty will come home with me instead?
    I love love love the picture of Saige’s hair down on Baby Gizzmo’s review pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am definnately getting her sweater set thingy and her pink dress and maybe her art set. To be honest though, I don’t think the balloon is much use. Is she supposed to fly, in it? What?

  17. @ Natalia get Saige first a get Mag 33 4 x-mas saige will sell out and then perish into eternal doll doom

  18. @ Naomi I will be your friend *gives everyone else a look of accomplishment*

  19. @Dakota, Saige’s dog is not named Sam. If you look in the catalog, it will tell you that his name is Rembrandt.

  20. @Naomi, in the catalog, the dog is listed as Rembrandt. I don’t know where the name Sam came from, because that is not his name. 😉

  21. I’m going to the AGP too on New Year’s Day!!!! Maybe I can see Char……..

  22. @Dakota I agree in that the moderators should stay to keep the Doll House safe. However, I do wish they could work at least a teensy bit faster……? 😉

  23. Fir sure Venus just a tad faster oh moderator

  24. Oops I got the info backwards I knew it was Rembrandt but wished it was sam

  25. @Paige, It may say in the catalog that her dog’s name is Rembrandt, but in the books, Sam is the name of Saige’s dog and Rembrandt is the name of Mimi’s dog. Are you sure that it says Rembrandt in the catalog? I haven’t recieved it yet.

  26. I can not wait until tonight! I’m going to order her as soon as she comes out online! Oh my gosh, I can’t wait! She’s so beautiful!

  27. Well, in her books its Sam and in the catalogue it says Sam. At least in mine.

  28. You might have gotten a faulty catolouge

  29. She’s sooooooooooo cute

  30. Nevermind, I just got the catalog.

  31. @ Caroline what does the catolougue say????

  32. Stinking iPod i meant catalog

  33. omg! she is so pretty! no lie she looks like me!

  34. In the catalogue, his name is listed as Rembrandt.

    You’re right. That saddle is WAY off.

  35. To set things straight…..In the catalog he is listed as Rembrandt but in the books as Sam.

  36. Why is it different in the books and the catalog? That’s wierd.

  37. I haven’t read the books, so I’m not sure….. ????????

  38. I need to make a decision about the items I want. I was planning when I would get everything I wanted from this collection, but I wasn’t sure if I should get the hot balloon set or not. It looks really cool but it’s expensive. $$$ Also, if I don’t get it, I’ll have more room for other items like the horse. Anybody can tell me what they think. :) Should I or should I not???

  39. YEAH!!! I’m going to the AG store in LA on Saturday, and I can’t wait! :)


  41. I love Saige she’s so cute

  42. I really want #37and#39. I also want Kaya and Rebecca
