Photos from the American Girl New York Store – Exclusives and New Items

Madelon spent the day at American Girl Place in New York yesterday and was nice enough to take photos of the new store exclusives and some of the other new items for the winter release. Enjoy.

The main outdoor window of the American Girl Place in NYC still decorated for the holidays.

This window display area is obviously waiting for Saige, the American Girl of the Year for 2013.


The new store exclusive swim suit for dolls is adorable. I love the print.

The polka dot bag and shoes are new store exclusives, too.

New store exclusives shirts that have a side tie.

The store exclusive PJs are $18, but more importantly, Coconut’s Statue of Liberty set is still available. I consider that a must have souvenir item – we got ours in 2006.

The new checkers and nachos set on the new game table with the fold flat sofa.

Another look at the new chair.

American Girl Softball Set

Softball is definitely a growing sport and I am sure this new softball outfit for the dolls will be a big hit.

The new roller skating outfit.

New I Love Pets PJs.

Kaya and the new storage trunk. This is something I am definitely interested in seeing up close!

Another look at the storage trunk. I am really interested in seeing how much each of them are as they look like a great way to keep your doll’s collection together. I think it will also make it easier to pack dolls away for a later date safely this way.

All the American Girl dolls of the Year (GOTY)

The retired Girls of the Year display – McKenna is not there yet! From left to right we have Lindsey, Kailey, Marisol, Jess, Nicki, Mia, Chrissa, Lanie and Kanani.

Cute how they turned the Head to Toe area into a Gingerbread House.

NYC inspired cookies at the Bakery.

Display with store exclusives and souvenirs from the cafe area.

The historical displays are some of my favorite! What a beautiful snapshot of a time gone by.

Another display – this one shows what the inside of Julie’s Mom’s Gladrags shop might have been like.  The detail historical vignettes are like visiting a museum in a way.

The winter display in the store. That snow looks like fun!

Thanks so much to Madelon for sharing these photos! I am so excited about some of the new exclusives – can’t wait to go to the American Girl store close to us soon.

  2. bailey says:

    do they really in even store have all the gotys lined up like that???

  3. bailey says:

    every not even

  4. Venus says:

    @bailey Yes, there is an entire row of all the past GOTY’s in one part of the store. However, they recently set up this rule where you cannot touch them. At least, that’s what they said to me when I got close to Marisol last time I went there. There were even two employees guarding the display, standing on each side that day, too… :/

  5. sabrina says:

    Love Winter Break!!

  7. Kaylee says:

    I can’t wait to see them in person! Char, I sent you two emails just so you know! They aren’t urgent or anything though.

  8. aglover says:

    NOT every store

  9. sabrina says:

    Char, Are you going to post throwback Thursday and the doll play activity?

  10. AGInParadise says:

    I went to AGP LA the other day, and McKenna and all of her things were gone. The strange thing was…They were not in the archives yet either….Just makes me go “Wait…What?” xD.

  11. AGInParadise says:

    Wow….I didn’t know they were that protective. xD

  12. Venus says:

    @AGInParadise That’s what I said that day! Lol. XD
    My dad said that someone probably tried to steal one of the dolls, which was why they had those two employees standing there.. Alas, the world may never know. :/
    *eats a Tootsie Pop*

  13. Delaney says:

    They used to have them at tge ag store in dallas, but took them out.

  14. Diana says:

    Char I went to the AG store and the storage case is $50, it is made out of sturdy cardboard and it even has a place to lable the storeage cse when you lay it down on a shelf. So when it is stanidn up the lable is on the bottom side that touched the shelf, when you lay the case on the shelf you see the label, preety neat detail. Not sure I like the price, for someone that has several dolls. I ended up geting the swimsuit, the new pink t-shirt and the bag/shoes which are sold separate from the swimsuit. The pink t-shirt looks great over the swimsuit top.

  15. Char says:

    Diana – thanks for the insight. $50 is definitely a lot when you have as many dolls as most of us do, however it might be good if you want to put a doll or two away for safekeeping.

  16. Hadden says:

    Char, are you going to post the day of doll play today + through back Thursday?

  17. Char says:

    Hadden – I already posted the doll play today – it is the snowboard craft. No throwback Thursday though.

  18. Hadden says:

    Oh, thanks for telling me I haven’t looked yet.

  19. Nina says:

    Venus, that happened to me, too! I got the app thinking that it would give me the Saige one it showed in the description, but the only one was the Holiday Edition! :(

  20. Gail says:

    read your review of the carry her thanks! probably gonna get it.

  21. Paige says:

    I might need the storage case! I wonder if it holds a doll or two…..? I could use it! Two of my dolls don’t have beds and I want a place to store them and I don’t want to see them go into the closet or the attic…..XD

  22. Saoirse says:

    The new outfits arent on the website yet. And since I live in Ireland I have to order and I can’t get any store exclusives ! :O :(|

  23. MorganAGV says:

    i love store exulisves.

  24. Aunty Paula says:

    Madelon, thank you for the photos. I especially enjoyed seeing those of the historical displays. I was disappointed that the AG store in Seattle was so small that it didn’t have many features the AGP has in NYC, like the historical displays or the past GOTY’s.

    I have mixed feelings about the trunks. I kind-a like the design for sport outfits for the MyAG line but they don’t work for me for the historical dolls. The design also says “mass production” to me. I have Samantha’s, Addy’s, and Kit’s trunks and I spent the money for them because they were unique to each of the historical periods…and had a place to hang, or lay flat, their dresses. When I look at my 1997 Pleasant Company catalog, I’m struck every time with the uniqueness, quality, and simplicity of each of the collections. Even the Just Like You collection had those qualities. It will be interesting to hear how other collectors put them to use.

  25. kananirulz says:

    store exclusives r awesome. thou i havent been to the store in a year

  26. kananirulz says:

    any more posts, Char?
    Oh and Char do you mind if I send pics of my new Little Miss Matched Doll?

  27. Alicen says:

    I wish the store that is close to me was as big as the NY American Girl Place…. but I really should be happy that I can visit the store whenever (most of the time) I wish.
    Madelon, do you know if they still sell Coconut’s Statue of Liberty outfit in other American Girl stores? Because I would love to get it for either a gift or I was thinking of getting Coconut before he retires… Sugar is long gone in AG places… But you can find her in Costco. :)
    Thanks so much Char and Madelon for sharing and posting today!

  28. Char says:

    Definitely send in your LMM doll photos!

  29. Alicia says:

    i have those in store exclusive pjs. I got them nearly a year ago.

  30. Alicia says:

    i remember going to the one in seattle, it was beautiful and amazing because it was my first time. Since it was in a mall when we were walking in the mall we saw lots of girls carrying american girl store bags.

  31. Venus says:

    @kananirulz Lol, I haven’t been to the AG Place since… September 9.
    And I’m already having AG Place withdrawl! XD

  32. April says:

    Pretty, I like the nachos set!

  33. Gail says:

    hope i get to go there in the spring!

  34. Saoirse says:

    I wish they would make a store in Ireland(impossible sigh). :(

  35. Venus says:

    @Saorise They should open an American Girl-style store in all parts of the world! In Ireland, they would be called Irish Girls. 😉
    That way, if I ever achieve my dream of visiting Japan, I won’t have to worry about not receiving my daily dosage of doll fun! And, my girls might possibly have new sisters coming from different parts of the world. 😉

  36. Venus says:

    Oops, I did it again. A wild typo appeared!
    I spelled your name wrong, Saoirse. ;P

  37. Gail says:

    cant stop looking at the pic of #58! she is so close yet so far! lol!

  38. Allie says:

    I’ve never been to an AG place. I may go to the grand opening in Columbus considering it’s only 2 1/2 hours away. If I do can I send in a trip report???
