Char on November 3, 2007 at 2:17 am We have not been able to get a picture of Mia yet – trust me, as soon as we get anything – a sketch, photo, book cover – you name it, we will post it. If anyone has any pictures of the new Mia doll, please let us know. Julie on November 8, 2007 at 7:29 pm I looked up the author of the books and all of his characters are Asia. My guess is that she is of Asian discent. Fiona on November 13, 2007 at 1:31 pm Mia’s last name is ST. Clair. If she is asian, she probably was adopted. She has 3 older brothers. jen on December 17, 2007 at 3:39 pm I know the girl personally who Mia is based on. She IS part chinese. She is also 1/2 Irish. She is a beautiful girl, if the doll really looks like her, you won’t be disapointed. Isabel lacal on December 21, 2007 at 9:50 pm She is from New York. She has red layered hair. Green eyes and frekles on her face. She is ten years old. Casey on December 23, 2007 at 12:51 am On the coer of ” Bravo, Mia!” It sort of looks like she’s doing ballet. I could be fooled! 🙂 Webkinz Lover on December 28, 2007 at 4:02 am I have seen a picture of Mia and she is not asian and is not adopted. These are just rumors being spread.I dont even think that she has layered hair.It also doesnt matter what the writer writes about, its about how American Girl makes her!!!!!! Caroline on December 30, 2007 at 10:46 pm I have a couple of thing s to ask.Jen, do you really know the girl she’s based on?Also, although this doesn’t relate to Mia does anyone know were i could buy a Nicki , in good condition,doll cheap. Like less than 100 dollars and it doesn’t even have to have the book with her.Thnx alex on December 31, 2007 at 6:07 pm try Ebay. I got my doll Kirsten there. Maeve on January 1, 2008 at 5:15 am Google Millies doll blog then click the sight and scroll down to see a picture of Mia Maeve on January 1, 2008 at 5:17 am Also for Caroline keep checking ebay eventually the price will go down Maeve on January 1, 2008 at 5:18 am Jen, Mia is not chinese/irish Jess is Webkinz Lover on January 3, 2008 at 5:47 pm Dear Caroline, You should not buy Nicki on ebay. It is a really bad idea. Even if a picture looks good on ebay doesn’t mean you should buy it. Look around on other sites and i’m sure you can find something. Char on January 3, 2008 at 5:59 pm Ebay can be a great place to purchase retired items. Just be sure to check the sellers feedback and read all the fine print. Do your research and be patient and I’m sure you will find a good deal. Maria, Webkinz fan on January 13, 2008 at 12:36 pm About Mia…Why is everybody dissapointed that she’s a redhead? I don’t see anything bad about redhead dolls. Marcia on January 18, 2008 at 9:00 am Yeah I love Mia Ashleigh on February 19, 2008 at 7:10 pm i own mia Marcia on March 10, 2008 at 12:27 pm Me too she’s great.
