We knew it was coming, but now its official! American Girl just announced on their Facebook page that Ruthie, Marie Grace, Cecile and Ivy are going to the archives.

According to the American Girl Facebook page: “Soon, we’ll say farewell to Marie-Grace, Cécile, Ruthie, and Ivy: http://bit.ly/1nkMb9w Complete your collection while supplies last—quantities are extremely limited. This fall, the rest of the historical characters become BeForever, a fresh approach to these American Girl favorites that we’ll reveal in the coming months!”

Of those four, the only one we do not have is Marie Grace and I just don’t know if we will be adding her to our collection or not. I would rather get Rebecca or Josefina, I think. What about you? What are your thoughts on the reitrements?
