Now that things are settling down, we can get back to some of our favorite regular features – like Throwback Thursday. I am going to work on a calendar of sorts for this feature so we can get a good mix of my photos and your photos for a specific theme, time period or character. For now, just a few random retired items.

Retired American Girl school supplies

Railey found some retired American Girl accessories at a doll sale last year. She found the original 1995 School Gear set – nice find! Inside is a a math text book, Trapper Keeper folder, spiral notebook, pencil, calculator (that actually works!!!), and progress reports. The lady also threw in these adorable mini grin pins!

Retired AG computer

Railey also bought the adorable mini Macintosh computer from 1996! It actually turns on and displays a word processing program. To give it a finishing touch she made a mousepad out of craft foam.

Retired AG exclusives

When Madelon saw the photos of the new store exclusive swimsuit for dolls she was reminded of this set they sold at the American Girl Place years ago. I love the combination of the navy blue and pink.

A closer look at the folding beach chair and accessories from this set.

Retired AG exclusives

The cover up top and matching towel are so cute! I might have to start looking on eBay for this set – too, too, cute!

Retired AG pajamas

Sharry sent in thins photo of  Stephanie (AGOT #19) wearing the Bell Sleeve Flower PJs from 2004. When Sharry got Sunny (formerly Julie) from Craigslist, this is what she was wearing. The slippers are from Necessary

2005 Paisley Print PJs

Our Alex is modeling the 2005 Paisley Print PJs.

These last two photos reminded me of how much I love all the doll pajamas! So, for next Thursday’s Throwback post the theme is PAJAMAS! Send in photos of your dolls wearing retired American Girl pajamas – historical, GOTY or MyAG. Please save me time by resizing your photos to 540 pixels wide first and if you want a watermark credit, you need to put it on the photo before you send it in. Email photos to and put Throwback Pajamas in the subject line.
