I love seeing photos of our readers dolls and love getting email and trip reports from you, too! During the month of July I got lots of reader input but was so busy with my own crazy life I haven’t had a chance to share many of them – until now. Some of you sent me lots of photos and I can’t post all of them, but I did pick out my favorites.

My American Girl 42

Gretchen shared a photo of her My American Girl doll #42 named AJ. According to Gretchen, she looks WAY prettier than online, like most dolls do. Her hair is very long and very fun to style in many different hairstyles – it is not textured like the website says. Gretchen likes to style AJ’s hair into French braids and high ponytails.  Her tan skin is a very pretty olive-ish color. AJ looks great in  light blue and red.

American Girl Kaya in Seattle store

Sarah and her family visited the new American Girl store in Alderwood – also known as the Seattle store on July 23.  They took a bunch of great photos but my favorite one is this one of Kaya’s display. Kaya is often overlooked but her story is such an important part of American history.

American Girl doll Lanie

Mara got creative with the play space she had to work with and divided her space into two rooms. Lanie looks pretty comfortable on her bed on her half of the “room.”

Thanks for sending these! If you have sent me photos and I have not posted them yet let me know and I will go back through my email and find them. I am working on a post from Jolie still that features her Playmobil dollhouse. That may be another day or so – but you will love it.

Anyway, feel free to email me photos of your doll’s adventures, product reviews and things you make for your dolls! Make sure you have your parent’s permission and send them to share@dolldiaries.com.
