Jen says… “Dakota” came from the Madison Children’s Museum benefit sale this summer. She was around $ 55.00.  This was an unplanned purchase but at the last minute I caved and she became a Christmas present in the making.  Dakota is the famous “doll in the closet” that so troubled Isabelle!  This is the first JLY/MYAG/Truly Me type doll to join the herd here, and I think she is pretty cool!

      Thank you! We are enjoying having a doll with a blank slate in terms of character. I think it’s great Brianna has her interested in software and coding. Girls can rock some math and engineering too. Haven’t seen this much from AG!

      Thank you! No regrets… Glad we grabbed her this summer even though it seemed crazy at the time.
      How wonderful that you got Grace AND Bonbon! I rarely see them together and he is so cute.

    It must be wonderful to have a “just like me” AG doll who really does look like you and whom you can characterize with your interests and values. And what fun to buy clothes for her! Enjoy every minute!

    Huh! I must have missed this post! I’m glad I read about it in the comment section of the letter from Brazil. Dakota is awesome! I’ll bet Isabelle is happy there aren’t any mystery guests sleeping in the closet anymore!
