A new American Girl catalog landed in our mailbox today and just in case you haven’t got one yet, I took a few photos for you. There really aren’t any new outfits or items for dolls but there are some new activities and events you may be interested in – especially as summer planning begins.

The cover of the May 2013 catalog highlighting American Girl as an experience and summer destination.

Starting June 3 American Girl and Crayola have teamed up for a new sweepstakes that celebrates art and creativity. The grand prize is a day at American Girl Place New York and a day at the new Crayola Experience in Easton, PA which features 3-stories of interactive attractions inspired by the iconic Crayola crayon. Watch the AG Facebook page for details.

New in stores this summer, a Summer Fun smoothie in the cafe, summer hairdos in the salon, a new purchase with purchase and there will be a summer release with new items for the dolls.

Saige Paints the Sky will be out on Blu-Ray/DVD on July 2, 2013 (it is already available for pre-order at Amazon) and there will be Saige movie watching party events in the stores this summer, too.

I am looking forward to the next catalog and the new summer releases… any guesses as to what we may see?
