Ultra Mini American Girl Dolls (Photostory)
While shopping at JoAnn's this weekend, I ran across these ultra mini AG dolls. I had seen them before but never paid much attention to them. After reading the back of the package and realizing these little dolls were articulated and could be redressed and given new hair, I decided to give one a try. I figured it would make a great AG doll for my old Janet/Stacy sized dolls. They would also work for my Only Heart dolls, like Nicole.
There were at least 15 different ones in all different skin tones. The single pack retails for $5.99. I used my 50% off coupon. The white piece shown is a doll stand and it comes with an extra skirt.
"Hello everyone. With this being the first year that an African American doll has been named Doll of the Year, I wanted to get my granddaughter one for her birthday. So this is Gabriella McBride in the ultra mini." (Dasia)
"I can't believe I finally got an American Girl doll! She's so pretty. I thought you said they were too expensive." (Carla)
"They are expensive, but this may be the only African American DOTY we every see, so I wanted to make sure I supported the company and added this potentially rare doll to your collection." (Dasia)
"I like how her body moves." (Carla)
"Now I can join the American Girl doll club." (Carla)
"There's a club?" (Dasia)
"Not really, but all my friends who didn't already have one, asked Santa for one at Christmas." (Carla)
"And everyone got one?" (Dasia)
"I think so." (Carla)
"I love her Grandma. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" (Carla)
"You are welcome, welcome, welcome. Make sure you take very good care of her." (Dasia)
"I will!" (Carla)
"Let me show you how to change her clothes and her hair." (Dasia)
The doll comes completely apart and you can change her hair, her skirt and probably her shoes. As for articulation, she can turn at the waist. bend her knees, spread her legs, move her arms, and turn her head.
"There you go. She now has on her pink skirt and she's standing on her stand." (Dasia)
"Ooooh, can we go shopping to buy her some more clothes?" (Carla)
"Grandma has spent all the money she is going to spend on this doll, at the moment. You may want to ask your granddad for some birthday money. Otherwise, you can earn some extra money by doing some chores." (Dasia)
"I'll go ask Granddad." (Carla)
Grandmas give the best gifts! I will be adding a few more of these to my collection. I can't believe how versatile they are!
