Hello, peeps! I’ve been meaning to do this post for a while, but with Michelle arriving, and juggling two blogs, it got significantly pushed back. But, now, as I find myself with a rare bit of space in my blogging itinerary, I’m doing it right now. Let’s jump right in with Luciana!
Luciana Vega Doll and Book, $115
I must say, Luciana is a lovely doll! Her dress is very into the theme, but I personally think it was just a tad overdone-I think a shirt and galaxy printed skirt would be more practical. That’s just me though. The side bangs and purple streak were a nice touch!
Luciana’s Stellar Outfit, $34
I like this! A+ for the patches, hehe. This is a minor detail, but I really like that the jacket is a bit big for her, as if she was expected to grow into it.
Luciana’s Mars HabitatL
Luciana’s Mars Habitat, $350
My first thought was that this was grossly overpriced. I mean, playing that your dolls going to Mars will get old after a while, and then what can you do with it? I try not to buy ‘unitasker’ doll items and this, unfortunately, is definitely a unitasker.
Luciana’s Telescope Projector Set, $40
So this is cute, and definitely on topic, but…forty dollars? Er, no. I do like that it projects stars onto ceiling or wall, but that does not constitute a $40 price tag. I will most emphatically be DIYing this.
Luciana’s Maker Station, $100
Again, not worth the price. It does have some useful pieces, though. I may or may not craft some of the items. (such as the plants!)
Luciana’s Pajamas, $34
THE SLIPPERS!! I really want this, as it could be used as everyday clothes, great for mixing and matching.
Moving on to Truly Me releases!
Truly Me’s #74, #75, #76, and #77
I have mixed feelings about this bunch of gentlemen. I like that AG released boy dolls, but I’m not a big fan of the dolls themselves. I think an open mouth with teeth showing would be more natural looking. I have been considering getting a boy doll, but if I do, I’ll be making one.
Sun and Fun Outfit, $28
I’m sorry, American Girl, but this looks like something an old man would wear. Thumbs down.
Apologies for the small picture
Dino-Mite Outfit, $28
Well…it’s OK, I suppose, but this hits a little below the target age range, I think.
New Mix ‘n’ Match Pieces, $10 ea.
AUGH! SO CUTE AND MIXABLE! My only critique is that those sequined shorts look rather itchy-wouldn’t they be better as a skirt?
New Truly Me Shoes, $10 ea.
Love, love, love! Those boots are d-a-r-l-i-n-g! The only quirk is that I can’t tell if those blue sneakers are for the boy dolls or the girls….
New Truly Me Accessories, $10 ea.
Oooooooh, I am loving the glasses! Such a pretty color. And the bag is to die for, as well as the beanie.
American Girl Snack Stand, $85
Again, not worth the price, but I will definitely be making this myself!
Explore the Outdoors Outfit, $28
This is totally something I would wear! A+ for the jacket and sandals.
Sunny Day Dress, $28
Very cute and flattering, but somehow I’m not digging it.
