American Girl of Today #3

Reitred in 2008, American Girl of Today (now called My AG) #3 – the one with light skin, blonde hair with bangs, blue eyes and no freckles – is the American Girl that started our little journey that has become Doll Diaries! Megan got her for Christmas in 2004 and named her Nicole. Over the years, Nicole has been on many adventures, had her hair done countless times, been on loan for about a year and will always have a special place in our hearts! Yes, her limbs are loose, and she has a few scuffs, but she is a doll who has been loved and continues to be loved.

Nicole is showing her “exclusive” fashion style today! She is wearing the American Girl Seattle t-shirt sent to me by Karen when it opened, the store exclusive white jean capris and red and white tennis shoes. The American Girl Place director’s chair was a store exclusive from the New York store around 2005 and the beach bag is also a store exclusive.

You can get a better look at the beach bag and the tennis shoes – which I just LOVE! The bows in Nicole’s hair are from Build-aBear. In case you didn’t already know, if you buy anything from BABW, just ask for some extra bows – they will give them to you and they work great in your dolls’ hair.

American Girl Kirsten compared to AGOT #3

I have had a lot of people confuse Nicole with the retired American Girl historical character Kirsten. They are pretty close to twins if you ask me! Our Kirsten has not really been played with and her hair has never been taken down so I do not know how much longer her hair is than Nicole’s. It is also shinier – but I think that is because Nicole has been played with a lot!! They have the same classic mold face, their eye color is just about identical and of course, their bodies are the same. What do you think – twins?
