My Thoughts on the New Release

Hi everyone! Katherine here. Today I have My Thoughts on the New Release. Enjoy!

Luciana Doll, Book & Accessories
Luciana Doll, Book, & Accessories

 I LOVE Luciana's story and theme. She's into STEM and space which is so cool!!! I love the doll but she looks an awful lot like #66. I love her purple streak in her hair. I also LOVE her boots. Her dress is okay, but I don't like the red belt. Her accessories are all right. I do love the backpack though.

Luciana's Mars Habitat
Luciana's Mars Habitat

I LOVE this set sooo much!! It's cool and it has so many pieces that go with it. It only costs $350........

Luciana's Maker Station
Luciana's Maker Station

This set is pretty cool! I love the little Mega Construx that it comes with, the little apron, and the little terrarium. I would buy the set just for the terrarium. Not really, but I LOVE it!
Luciana's Robotic Dog
Luciana's Robotic Dog

I really like the idea of a robotic dog, but I don't like the price. ($35)

Luciana's PJs for 18-inch Dolls
Luciana's PJs for 18- inch Dolls

I like these, but in my opinion, they don't quite look like pajamas. They are cute though!

Luciana's Telescope Projector Set
Luciana's Telescope Projector Set

I like this set and the idea of having a telescope, but I think that $40 is a bit too much for a telescope and a blanket.

Luciana's Flight Suit for 18-inch Dolls
Luciana's Flight Suit

I really like this! It's so cute and realistic. Plus, it's not pink!

Luciana's Stellar Outfit for 18-inch Dolls
Luciana's Stellar Outfit

I love, love this outfit! I love the shirt, jacket, and shoes. This would be an outfit I would consider purchasing.

Luciana's Visitor Center Accessories
Luciana's Visitor Center Accessories

I LOVE the shirt so much. This set ($20) would be worth it just for the shirt.

 Luciana Vega's Backpack for Girls
This is the backpack for girls which I LOVE but the problem is that it's so small. :(
American Girl Luciana's Space Suit for 18-inch Dolls
Luciana's Space Suit (AG Rewards Exclusive)

I LOVE the idea of a spacesuit! But it's $75 and only available for AG rewards members. But, the idea is still really cool!
Tenney's Pre-Show Bundle for 18-inch Dolls
Tenney's Pre-Show Bundle

This is set is ok. I like the shoes, but the shorts look like exercise shorts and the fringe top (in my opinion) is ugly. The jacket is okay. I would like it better if there was no blue stripe.

Tenney's Split-Front Dress for 18-inch Dolls
Tenney's  Split-Front Dress

I would like this dress better if it didn't have the split in the middle. And then you're supposed to wear the black shorts underneath it??? I don't get it.....

Tenney's Show Shoes
Tenney's Show Shoes

I do actually like these shoes. I can see them being used a lot for mix-n-match outfits.

Tenney's Microphone Set
Tenney's Microphone Set

This set is cute. It's not terribly expensive. ($15) but it seems like it's super plastic-y.

Tenney's Rosy Sunglasses for Dolls
Tenney's Rosy Sunglasses

I really like these! I can see the dolls wanting them. The glasses are cute.

Truly Me™ Doll #74 + Everyday Accessories
Truly Me Doll #74

Okay, here are my thoughts on the boy dolls. The brand is American GIRL not American BOY. I'm not against boy dolls, but I don't like American Girl making them.
Truly Me™ Doll #76 + Everyday AccessoriesTruly Me™ Doll #75 + Everyday AccessoriesTruly Me™ Doll #77 + Everyday Accessories
These are the other three boys. I feel like if AG was going to make boy dolls they should have made more choices.
Everyday Accessories

I like these accessories they are so cute! I especially love the hoodie.
 Star Spangled Fan Gear for 18-inch Dolls
Star Spangles Fan Gear

This outfit is cute! I like it. :)

These are cute! I could see the top being used as a regular shirt, but still it's cute!

And that wraps up this post! There are still some things I didn't state my thoughts on so you can go to the AG website and look at them yourself. :) (Like the new mix-n-match items, and some shoes and accessories, along with new Wellie Wisher things)
