I really need to perfect my photo taking process when I go to AG – I always think I’m taking a ton of photos, then I get home and realize I forgot to take certain photos. This definitely happened at the BeForever debut. I didn’t get all the Addy photos I needed to get, but I did get a few unique photos and I guess that makes up for it.

Three American Girl Addy Dolls

We met quite a few Doll Diaries friends while we were there and one of them brought both of her Addy dolls to get some side by side comparisons. From left to right – a Mattel Addy, the “new” Addy, and a Pre-Mattel Addy.

A few people have noted that the “new” Addy will have a different skin tone and a few other minor differences. I also heard that the dolls in the boxes in the store are the old dolls with the new dresses on. I can not confirm this… just passing on the rumor.

I just adore Addy’s new accessories ($24) ย which include a bonnet, patchwork bag and shell necklace.

I just love the bag!

I think the reason I did not get more photos of Addy is that she was under glass so much and I don’t like the glare and reflections that appear in the photos.ย 

This is Addy in her Nightgown ($24) with her hair styling kit snood ($22 for the set) and her bed/bedding set – an American Girl bargain at $70.

Addy actually “inherited” Marie-Grace and Cecile’s Crinoline and Chemise ($24) which gives her dresses more volume. I do love her new school outfit ($34) and lunch pail set ($28). She looks so smart!

What do you think of Addy’s new items? I like her new dresses and think it was smart for AG to keep the Crinoline and Chemise.
