My thoughts – Truly Me

“Woah, Hayley’s still alive?”

Actually, yes, I am!

Today I’m going to be telling you my opinion on the new Truly Me releases. (I really hope I can keep my rambling to a minimum.)

Recess Ready Outfit  ( $30 )

So cute! But what’s up with the boots? I would love to buy this, except for the price and the boots; I just don’t think it would be worth it.


Mod Monster Costume  ( $34 )

No, No, No, No, No.  Why would your doll need a halloween costume? (But there’s no pink! That’s the only good thing about this, in my opinion.)


Basketball Outfit ( $34 )

It looks really well-made, and I’m very happy to see it’s not pink… But I won’t be purchasing this set, since I don’t play basketball.

Sparkle Sweater Outfit ( $30 )

All the items I think would be cute apart, well except for the shoes, but definently NOT together. Again, something I will not be purchasing.


Sparkle Socks and Leggings ( $12 )

I have a million pairs of socks that I NEVER put on my dolls so why would I want this? Definitely not for $12!


Tweed Driver’s Cap ( $10 )

Just a little cute… But I think it’s a little too crazy.


Fun Fedora  ( $10 )

No pink! That’s the only thing that really makes me like it :D.


Silver Sparkle Beanie  ( $10 )

This is pretty cute. And I think it would be even cuter on a doll. But I don’t need a doll hat, so it won’t be going on my list.


Rhinestone Baseball Cap  ( $10 )

Let’s think about this—would it actually stay on the doll’s head?

Striped Hoodie  ( $14 )

Pretty cute, but–again–not going on my list.


Shearling Boots  ( $16 )

Ok, these would be cute if they didn’t have a big bow and weren’t purple—just not my style :).


Sparkle Sneakers  ( $14 )

These are really cute–if you like these kind of sneakers.


Hairstyle Tools  ( $20 )

Wowwww. That’s all I can say, wow–$20? Do any of you remember when $90 would buy a whole doll?


Stylin’ Bangs  ( $20 )

It’s a pretty good idea, but no. It would be super hard to put in your doll’s hair, and it wouldn’t be cute. (Plus, that picture is just creepy. And who needs one of every color of hair?)


Double Braid Headband  ( $20 )

I feel like it would be really hard to use… Well, I know I won’t be buying this. :p (Sorry I keep saying that.)


Terrier Puppy  ( $28 )

Ok…. in the Truly Me release did they just add a toy to the pets and up the price by $8?

Why couldn’t they keep Coconut? I will never really understand why people would buy AG pets; I mean why not just use a stuffed animal?


Flip-Top Desk  ( $58 )

If Loren hadn’t said anything, I wouldn’t have noticed, but the chair’s attached to the desk… And I feel like it’s a lot more cheesier than the old one. But it is cute :).


Hot Lunch Set ( $25 )

The straw comes OUT of the milk container!

Did AG get new designers that can actually make a realistic toy? I mean it’s so much more detailed than usual AG—it could come from OG! XD

But I don’t really like the brownie—they should have made that a cookie. But that’s okay; I like making my own doll cookies. Maybe I’ll post a blog about that soon.


Sport Storage Bench  ( $48 )

This is pretty cute, but they could have put just a couple more things in there, like a soccer ball, basketball, and a baseball.

But $48 is really high; I will not be buying this, even if it is a little cute.


Science Fair Set  ( $32 )

The telescope is so cute! But that’s really all I would use. Since it costs $32, I won’t even consider this one.


Slow Cooker Dinner Set  ( $58 )

Love, Love, Love!

The crock pot, the fried chicken, the butter dish, the BBQ sauce, the muffins, the forks, the prongs, and the fruit in the grapefruit rind are all so cute! (Did I mention I like this?)

But the only way I will be getting this is my birthday or Christmas. It’s so expensive. I definitely will be trying to re-create this one!


That’s all I’ve got for you guys today! I’m so excited to see these things in person at the AG store NEXT weekend (and I will be posting pictures of that)!

I would like to say thanks to American Girl for giving me more DIY ideas that I’ll be working on as soon as I get my doll house all set out. (Yup–the doll house is done and in my room! So I need to post this blog and get back to designing my set-up!)

Thanks for reading, and make sure to tell me what you think of the new Truly Me items. Better yet, please share your DIYs that are inspired by these new items! And look for part two (Beforever).
