McKenna Starter Set

Does anyone else think American Girl REALLY MESSED UP with McKenna’s collection? I can not recall another Girl of the Year where so  much of her collection was BACKORDERED this early in the year as McKenna’s is. One of the reasons we have not got her yet, is that you can not purchase her starter set. According to the American Girl website:

  • MCKENNA’S ACCESSORIES Backordered until Apr 27, 2012
  • MCKENNA’S PRACTICE WARDROBE Backordered until May 04, 2012
  • MCKENNA’S WARM-UP OUTFIT Backordered until May 25, 2012
  • MCKENNA’S LOFT BED Backordered until Apr 27, 2012
  • MCKENNA’S BEAM & BAR Backordered until Sep 14, 2012

That is all the key components of her collection! Really AG? I am very glad we bought her Beam and Bars right away and now I do regret not buying her starter set that very first weekend.

McKenna items out of stock

This is a photo that one of our readers sent in that shows the signage at the Tyson’s Corner store that says McKenna items are limited to 3 per person.

Add to that, we really have not seen many details about her upcoming movie – other than a tiny image on the McKenna page at the AG site – and I am wondering if AG just really dropped the ball on this collection.

Now it’s your turn. I’d lover to hear what you think. Do you have any of McKenna’s collection? Do you find it odd that so much is backordered and its only March? Did AG really underestimate her popularity?
