UPDATED-Pictures of New American Girl Rebecca

So a bunch of people got an email today from American Girl with a teaser picture of the new historical character, Rebecca.

american girl rebecca sneak peek

Basically it is their sneak peek photo that gives us just enough of a look at her face to know she is going to have light brown hair, hazel eyes and a very cool velvet hat. She will be released May 31 and all the American Girl stores will have special events in her honor.

UPDATED – Here is another photo someone got (thanks for the link Lena):

When I was at the Chicago store the employees were hush hush on the details of Rebecca, but I am sure the stores are getting ready for some rearranging to make way for her collection.

Another Update!

  2. Emma says:

    Hmm…I don’t really like Rebecca, only her school outfit. She doesn’t seem like I thought she would be, but she’s ok.

  3. chrysanthamum says:

    i like her meet dress outfit.

  4. kylie says:

    OMG!!! She’s on the website already!!!!!! I ordered her already I can’t wait for her to come!

  5. chrysanthamum says:

    your so lucky how exciting. when will she arrive?
    it usually tkes over a week form when i plcae the order.

  6. kylie says:

    I’m not sure, but I hope she comes soon! My mom ordered her for me, we just got the confirmation email.

  7. kylie says:

    Will Becca have a best friend doll, did AG confirm it?

  8. Anaka says:

    i don’t know kylie good question but i think she will because of her books. There is another girl on one of her book’s. So it is a mystery, but if i remember julie was, showed on Oprah so maybe rebecca will be on Oprah???

  9. chrysanthamum says:

    did julie have more stuff than rebecca when she was released?
    will they make the character’s dolls from the books; for julie and ivy who had chinese dolls? and rebecca, ruthie,?

  10. Holly says:

    i belive julie did.

  11. Anaka says:

    i have bad news, rebbecca will not be on the oprah winfree show. i emailed ag and they said no so no oprah but that isn’t dissapointing i asked if she will have a bf so i will info soon

  12. Taylor says:

    Do you guys think I should get Rebecca or Kirstin? I like Rebecca more than Kirsten and Rebecca’s clothes and stuff more cuz I have Samantha and Nellie, and I just love their clothes and Rebecca’s clothes is very similar. And I like the Victorian Era time and around that time. But I also like Kirstin too, and I’m afraid they might retire her, and if they come out with a friend for Rebecca I would want her too. And I don’t know how many more dolls my mom will buy for me cuz she says like 3 or 4 is enough. And I just have Samantha and Nellie right now. So which one should I get?

  13. Holly says:

    well, in my opinion, rebecca. she would go w/ the ones u already have. u could change their outfits and still be historically accurate.

    but, thats just my opinion.

  14. Taylor says:

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing, but I’m still thinking which one to get, but I think I’m leaning more towards Rebecca.
