Introducing Amelia from A Girl For All Time

Ever since I saw Amelia from our friends at A Girl for All Time at Toy Fair, I have been waiting so patiently to be able to share more of her with you. Amelia is one of Matilda’s descendents who is born in the Victorian Age in England and she inherits Matilda’s trunk.

A Girl For All Time Amelia Victorian Girl

According to the A Girl for All Time website, the summary of Amelia’s story goes like this:

‘My name is Amelia Elliot.  Just an ordinary school-girl in Victorian London. I’m looking forward to my thirteenth birthday when I’m going to inherit the family traveling trunk bequeathed to every first born girl, by my great great great…..well so many greats I lose count…grandmother Matilda.

A gypsy at the fair yesterday, read my palm and said I’m going to have a life of struggle, heartbreak, riches and adventure and that she could see me on stage at a music hall!  What a load of nonsense!’

Again from looking at the web site, the Amelia extras are in the works, like her Secret Recipes are being added soon and Things to Do with Amelia is taking shape. They are doing another photo shoot with Amelia later in April so hopefully we will be able to share more photos of her – like maybe a full length shot or see some of her outfits (which I saw and love).

If you visit the Amelia page on A Girl for All Time, you can see a few more photos now and her book cover. Amelia is scheduled to be released September of 2012 and I look forward to “meeting” her then.

  1. Firstie!

  2. Pretty Irish AG says:

    They’re both so pretty!

  3. she is (no offence Matlda) more prettier than Matilda.

  4. OH MY GOSH!!!!! I THINK I AM GOING TO DIE RIGHT NOW. SHE IS THE MOST PRETTEIST DOLL I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY WOLE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Erin- i todtaly aggre!!! acshuly i

  5. I might have to crack and buy Matilda now, with the 15% off code. Why must I like European dolls so much?!

  6. I think I may like Amelia more then the other Girl For All Times. She’s so pretty and sounds epic!

  7. I want her RIGHT now! She is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo stunningly pretty!

  8. Anastasia says:

    Erin – I would have to agree. Maybe it’s because we both share the blonde hair and blue eyes. I also like her era better than Matilda’s, and her face mold seems less serious and more bright and happy.

  9. I like both of them they are so so so pretty. I would get one of them maybe. It’s just that their characters are older than American girl. But they are 2 inches smaller.  I was looking for a little sister for my two American girl dolls. Anyone have any suggestions?

  10. ashly- i think u could probs get a bfcink doll for a little sister for them or something like that!!
    amelia is sososososo pretty!!

  11. Thanks Claire. Does BFC iink come with books? Because I like dolls with books. Anyone else have any suggestions?

  12. Ashly – BFC Ink does not come with a book.

  13. She is VERY pretty! She has a gentle smile and doesn’t look as sad as Matilda.
    For some reason she reminds me of Jane Austen’s sister in Becoming Jane or of Elizabeth Bennett’s sister Jane in Pride and Prejudice.

  14. Ashly, hearts 4 hearts are 14 in, and look cute next to AGs. They don’t really come with books, but they have diaries you can read online.

  15. Aunty Paula says:

    Char, did the folks from A Girl For All Time make any mention of production of the “family traveling trunk?” I would love getting the dolls…but the trunk would be essential to a collection.

  16. OOH PALM READING GYPSIES! I still cant wait for Clementine!

  17. Aunty Paula – I will ask her, because that is something I would really want too.

  18. Thanks so so so much guys. Your suggestions were really helpful. I checked out the BFC ink site and the dolls are beautiful! So are the hearts for hearts girls. I will tell you guys if I ever get one. Thanks!

  19. Char, do you know how many dolls are going to made in all?

  20. I belive the plan is for 6.

    Tudor, Elizabethan, Georgian, Restoration, Victorian, WWII,

  21. Caitlin says:

    I dont really like how the dolls look, but I like how the story sounds.

  22. Madelon says:

    Amelia is beautiful. What size clothes does Matilda fit in? Slim bodied Carpitina style or American girl size?

  23. Madelon-A Girl for all time are 16 inches. I don’t think either of them would fit. Maybe Ellownye Wilde clothes would fit them. I don’t really know. But if they are the same size as Ellownye Wilde I found this great post about how American Girl clothes can fit Ellownye Wilde. Here is the link

  24. Madelon – she could wear slim body Carpatina clothes or maybe some BFC Ink items. I’ll have to have Matilda try a few things on and see what fits her best.

  25. What a cuty!

  26. Oh lovely, as if American Girl making a book about fourtune telling for Rebecca wasn’t enough, this company has to do it too? How dissapionting.

  27. Wow. Just wow. She is soooo gorgeous! She’s, well, basically perfect! I didn’t think I’d like her after I didn’t really care for Matilda, but WOW! I can’t stop saying that! Maybe that’s why my brother is staring at me…

  28. so….is Girl of all TIme going to release a new doll like every year, or what??

  29. Their stories sound interesting and they are both very pretty!

  30. Anna – I am not sure what the roll out schedule for A Girl for All Time has set.

  31. Amelia looks better with that face mold

  32. I like her, but in my mind her lips are a little too red for my taste. ONLY ME HERE!
