Blaire Book Cover Leaked! **UPDATED**

Check out this link to see the actual Blaire doll!

Eek! I’m so excited! Blaire’s hair and eye color has finally been released via her book cover, and I’m super happy. It’s now official that Blaire is a redhead with what appears to be dark green eyes. The picture does a lovely job of showing highlights, and I’d love it the doll had them as well. ( I’m really starting to love the name Blaire-so sweet and pretty!) Β 

Her book is 192 pages long, and the synopsis is ; “Blaire is helping to plan a wedding at her family’s farm and inn, but it’s a lot to handle!”

The illustration made me think of TM #61 because of the green eyes and red hair, so I hope they make a new Blaire doll instead of using the Gabriela technique of sticking a TM in new clothes. However, after seeing Luciana, I think AG is over their hump and will make an all new doll.

The last thing I sincerely hope-that the wedding Blaire is planning is NOT a gay ”marriage”. The wedding theme reminds me of The Penderwicks At Last, it seems to be a popular theme recently. Maybe it’s an older sibling or relative?

Thoughts about Blaire and her book?

  1. Oh my goodness, I’ve been chanting like a nine-year-old, Blaire, Blaire, Blaire!
    Honestly, they very well might, but I’m hoping AG will make the right choice. I’m suprised they are even doing this, I mean they lose customers either way.

    1. So have I! It’s so exciting!!
      I hope so, too. In the past, AG has been pretty conservative and erring on the side of Christianity (a lot of their dolls end up going to church in their books, which I loved). I actually think they’d lose MORE customers if they did do a gay ”marriage”, but I couldn’t say for sure.

      1. Our Generation makes OK clothes, but the dolls, in my opinion, are creepy! It’s the eyes and the eyelashes, they don’t mix at all. AG is the oldest and therefore has more experience in making dolls, clothing and racking up prices.

  2. I LOVE THIS DOLL SO MUCH!!!! I love that it’s a more wholesome doll idea, the doll isn’t trying to go to space or anything. I mean, that sends a great message to girls to “dream big,” but this seems way more realistic. I seriously hope it’s not a gay marriage. I will be so ticked at American Girl if it is. 😀😀😀

    1. I know, right?? It sounds like she’s going to be SO pretty! I really like that, too-dreaming big is great, but Luciana’s stories were a little improbable. Me, too! I don’t even know WHAT I’ll do if it is. Send them a horde of angry letters, maybe.

  3. I’m so excited for Blaire! Even though I’m not planning on buying her I can’t wait to read her stories. And have you seen her overalls outfit? I am in love!!! 😍 😍😍 It’s so cute! And I really hope it isn’t either, that would make me really angry.

    1. Me toooo! Poppets and Posies has pictures of her entire collection now, too! I have!! I’ll probably be getting that, lol. Too bad it’s not in my size…agreed! That would be terrible!(wow, so many exclamation points in this comment, haha)

  4. Blaire seems interesting, I looked at the video, but I still don’t know what I think of her, I would need to see her in person or at least see a clear photo of her to tell. Though she sounds a little similar to Saige though with her red hair and the fact that she lives on a farm (though Saige didn’t exactly live on a farm but her grandmother had one.)
    The wedding idea is interesting I have to say, I wonder if her big thing will be the place where the wedding takes place, and maybe she will have pictures of the bride and groom who are getting married and of her extended family who came to the wedding or something like that…
    Though she does remind me of Saige, I am very interested to find out what happens…

    1. P.S. The only thing I miss is the old covers for the girl of the year books, it would be nice to have it be a realistic looking drawing instead of the new ones.

    2. I hadn’t thought of that, but now that you mention it, she does seem similar! I think you’re right, poppetsandposies.blogspot.com has pictures of her entire collection and there’s some kind of awning type thing that looks like it’s probably where the wedding takes place. I wonder if it’s an older sibling who’s getting married, perhaps?
      I love your comments, Quinley, because you always make such great and thoughtful points πŸ™‚

      1. I looked at the photos, for some reason she just doesn’t “click” with me…
        I had that same thing happen with the most recent girl of the years too, like Luciana and Gabriella (But I LOVED Leah.) for some reason to me, her whole collection looks a little like the Willie Wisher’s collection, as in it doesn’t look realistic like Leah’s or Saige’s did. (However, I do love the Willie Wisher’s so that is not mean’t to be insulting them…it was only a small comparison.)

        Thank you. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you enjoy reading my comments.

      2. I agree! She’s cute, but….just ‘meh’ for me.
        Yes! It does look VERY Wellie-esque! That’s probably part of the subconscious reasons I’m not a fan-I never really liked the Wellie Wishers. I don’t hate them, but they just aren’t my favorites.

      3. Maybe budget cuts could explain it…if so, why didn’t they just do what they did with the Beforever covers for the Girl of the Year covers if they couldn’t afford an artist?

  5. That attitude about gay marriage? Really??? Just when I thought our world had progressed and we had a more enlightened generation. As a mother of 3 girls those comments shocked me so much I had to speak up. What a shame, obviously AG DOES need to have a doll with a story background of the lgbt community to teach acceptance and the importance of having an open mind. If your idea of being open-minded is someone who sees life your way instead of his way, you are in for bumpy ride.

    Is this an attitide you were taught? One of the most important things parents should be teaching is for you to view the world through your own lens and make decisions based on reality instead of bias and prejudice.
    Although its fine to express that you don’t agree with their beliefs or choices, you still should show respect for varying viewpoints.

    1. First, I see that clearly you don’t have quite enough courage to express your view, because you are commenting anonymously. Just throwing that out there.
      As a person who strongly believes in freedom of speech and respecting different views, I’m not deleting your comment, and I’m responding to it seriously.
      Your basic ideas of ‘see the world through your own lens’ and ‘be open and accepting’ have some very fundamental problems. Are you saying that we should all come up with our own moral code? That we should just ‘accept’ other people, the way they are, including their wrong and evil choices? Why not ‘accept’ who Hitler was, and his hate for Jews and others, then?
      I am open-minded, despite what you say. What I am NOT is ready to go along with things that I know are deeply wrong. There are thousands of other ways to teach girls to be open-minded and accepting (of things that are not morally wrong). Why not a doll with Autism or Down Syndrome?
      I’m not quite sure what you mean by being ‘taught this attitude’. As a Roman Catholic, I believe and hold to what is right. I suppose you could say I was taught this belief, but I was not forced to believe it-I decided to believe it, because I know it’s right. Are your girls being force-fed the belief that they must accept the LGBT agenda? That they must accept whatever the world announces is right, even when it is not?
      While some things are viewpoints that I can consider and respect, something that I know is morally and horribly wrong is not something I can ever respect, period. Can you respect that fact? I’m getting the impression you cannot.

  6. Lol, my oldest daughter just reminded me that American Girl DID a magazine feature on a family with a 2 Dad same sex couple family 4 years ago! You girls were obviously too young to remember. Oh and guess what? Their WAS controversy but American Girl also stood firm and proud on it. Their business nor shares dipped and everyone including you has continued to buy their products. One of the Dad’s put it beautifully

    “My belief is children don’t understand discrimination. It’s taught to them. They see who loves each other, but they don’t see what love should be. Love is love. It doesn’t matter what form it comes in. You believe moms live with unconditional love, so it was saddening to us to hear something so heated from moms. I believe that Mattel and American Girl are showing this is the new family that’s out there. This is the modern family.”

    1. This may surprise you, but I was around 8 years old then, and DO remember that story quite clearly. Even then, as a 3rd grader, I knew there was something wrong with two men ”marrying”. Since the beginning of time, marriage has been between a man and a woman. Marriage has two main purposes; to make both spouses better and more fit for God, and to have children. Two men or two women cannot have children, so therefore, what is the point? If marriage is only about ‘love’, then why can’t a father and son get married if they ‘love’ each other? Why not two sisters who ‘love’ each other?
      This is not discrimination. Gay people are still people who are unique human beings with an irrevocable dignity who deserve to be loved and valued in society. But this does not mean we should condone and accept their wrong choices.

  7. There is no anonymous, my wordpress name doesn’t seem to be appearing. My name is Lisa, I have no intention of hiding. My mother worked for Pleasant Company when Pleasant launched it back in 1986 and was a faithful employee for 18 years. As a child we attended some of the company receptions and I can tell you Ms. Rowland was a very proud feminest and open minded individual. I havent had a chance to read your response so I will go do that now.

  8. Natalie who are you to say what is wrong or moral? I’m honestly not sure there is any point of even having a conversation with someone who compares Hitler an equal to the conversation at hand. I would think that if you were educated enough to know the name Hitler that you would also know thr history on his condemnation of gays? Arresting and castrating them because of their “evil views”? I am seeing more of a comparison between your points and his right now vs the equality of murder and love.

    1. I do not decide what is right and wrong, God does. I’m going to ignore your Ad Hominem remark about not being educated and simply answer your argument. I used Hitler as an example of horrible evil that everyone can agree was wrong to show that ‘seeing the world through your own lense’ is a form of moral relativism that is logically unsound.

  9. You sound like I did a few years ago. I thought I had to denounce people who I thought were sinning because God hated sin, and I should hate it too. But then I remembered that Jesus ate with the sinners and communed with them. I also remembered not everyone believed like I did, and my beliefs shouldn’t affect someone who doesn’t believe that way. I wouldn’t like it if I was forced to follow Islamic or Buddhist rules, so I imagined other people felt the same way about Christianity. They deserve to be represented as an American family. Little kids will finally see their own families being represented, and that is so important.

    1. Jesus ate with sinners in order to help them repent. As Americans, we have freedom of religion. As Christians, we also have the Great Commission, meaning we should share our faith joyfully with other people. We aren’t forcing others to follow our religion, that would be wrong. One must choose to be Christian, one cannot be forced. But God certainly doesn’t want us to just go along with whatever the secular world announces. A gay couple is not a family, and as for those poor kiddos stuck in that situation…they need our prayers.
