Spring is in the air which brings us the “Spring Sale” from various of our doll companies as well as some new releases. Lets put it all together and see what fun activities our girls are having.
Journey Girls Collection has released a new item called the Outside Table Set for $29.99. This is a cute set and it comes with table, two bench chairs, cushions for the benches, 2 glasses, 2 table place mats, and picnic basket. It is made out of wood and very easy to put together. Putting all the items together, you can see how spring is in the air and what fun our girls are having. Lets take a closer look.
American Girl had a fantastic spring sale where items were available both online and in the stores, including free shipping with the purchase of $100 or more. This is becoming more common and a good way to move recent release products. The Himalayan kitty came home, she is adorable and is wearing the Blossom collar as she walks the gazebo banister with her favorite fish toy.
Anne is enjoying her new AG Garden Set, as well as wearing the garden shorts set. The gardening bench has lots of fun items including the honey bee set that she is showing Emily. I love the very colorful bird house, but the little bird can not come out of the bird house, contrary to what the AG online descriptions says. The garden bench is made out of wood and was also on sale as well as the garden outfit.
The JG outside table set fits in perfectly next to the AG Samantha’s gazebo. Journey Girls Collection was also on sale 20% off all items and if you purchase the items on Thursday with the TRU card, you get an extra 10% off. The table is the perfect size for the 18 inch dolls and they can sit nicely on the bench chair. Grace and Lena are having some girl talk, and I think Lena is trying to convince Grace to join her for a shopping trip at the beach shops.
Perky was thrilled with her Diva AG ballerina outfit and slipper toy. She loves wearing her Diva crown, do you think she is spoiled? But wait who is that new girl playing with Pecky? Goldie is the golden retriever from the JG collection.
This little cutie is a Gotz “Just Like Me” 11 inch doll. I found her at Goodwill, brand new still in her Harrods box (Harrods is a UK store). She makes a perfect little sister for any 18 inch doll. Her name is Giuseppina (means Josephine in English, I call her Josie) and is mainly found in Europe. She has shoulder length hair and dark brown eyes. The two flower pots at the entrance of the gazebo are from the AG Garden set, notice the little butterfly. These flower pots come in three parts, pot, dirt and flowers, great for playing gardening.
Brittany is a My Salon Doll, she can wear some of the AG outfits as long as they are not fitted around the waist. The Brittany’s waist is smaller than the AG dolls, but her chest and shoulders are the same size as AG dolls. Here Brittany is ready to go visit her family overseas, and she wears a historical outfit from AG Samantha’s collection. The coat and hat are part of a set and the bag and gloves are a separate set. The dress and boots is a set sold separately as well. Brittany wears this outfit very well and I love her dark hair with blue eyes.
Brittney came to the gazebo to pick up Josie, who is traveling with her overseas.
Putting all these wonderful products together is what doll play is all about and letting your imagination develop creativity is so much fun.
