There are a lot of new doll releases out there now! Thank you, Toyfair 2017!
There are three dolls from different lines that I am really excited about. Although I have posted about them separately, I thought it would be fun to look at them in one post.
First of all, obviously, Nanea. She's gorgeous, it sounds like she has a really interesting backstory, she is culturally diverse, and she has a new face mold! AG did a stellar job on her!
Then AG is releasing a new Korean doll, Z Yang. Z is short for Suzie. She makes stop motion videos.
Z is the first Asian AG doll who is a main character in her own right. I am so happy that they are making her. I don't know if I'll be getting her yet. Nanea is my first priority.
Next is Bex from A Girl from All Time. She is SO pretty. I love her and Nisha.
I am trying not to start collecting for another doll line, because honestly my first and last love is always American Girl. If you aren't AG, you're gonna get neglected by spells at my house.
But I love Bex, and I already have patterns for this line of dolls. It's so hard to resist!
Also, there is Aya from Hearts for Hearts. I love her. I love her story of being a Syrian refugee. It is one that many people need to hear. She is lovely, and she is unique in the Hearts for Hearts line.
She is definitely coming home with me! I am so proud of Hearts for Hearts for making this doll.
You can see pictures of Aya here. I don't want to steal someone else's photos by posting them without permission.
Then there are the AG Contemporary Characters, Tenney and Logan. I do not like them and will not be getting them.
I do not like their unrealistic story line, and I do not like that they stole thunder from Gabriela as Girl of the Year.
I especially do not like that AG used Kaya's face mold for Logan. It implies that there is something masculine about her. That can be very hurtful to Native girls. Kaya is so sweet and pretty.
