New Nanea News

I’m feelin’ the alliteration today.

American Girl announced that today (4/11) is Nanea’s birthday, which is a bit odd considering she isn’t here yet.  They have not revealed the Year of her birth.

In this same Facebook post, the company said:

  • Nanea will not have perma panties
  • She does have ‘sleep eyes’
  • She will be released in “early fall”
  • She has a cloth body and will fit in all AG clothes
  • They will provide the phonetic pronunciation of her name soon
  • The company said they don’t know anything about her vinyl being soft but her heart ❤️ is
  • There will be a GOTY in 2018 (here’s to hoping it’s not another TrulyMe doll with a mole or freckles painted on)

I am really looking forward to seeing her collection.  I hope her clothes fit older dolls!  

AG New Book (Doll?) Series

I stumbled upon this on Amazon — a new book series called “American Girl Like Sisters” to be released at the end of August. Will cousins Emma, Sofia and Zoe also be dolls?  I am assuming so. Perhaps this is the evolution towards giving existing TM dolls a story.

When I read the book description it sure reminded me a lot of Cynthia Rylant’s childrens’ book series “Cobble Street Cousins” in which three cousins live in their Aunt’s grand old house in a cozy attic.  They have adventures like starting a cookie baking business.

I also happened upon the first images of Z. Yang’s books, of which two are listed.

Tenney is getting a 4th book in late September, plus “Tenney’s Journal” which is already out.  The 4th book looks like a continuation of her story with a Christmas theme and does not appear to be a journey book.  Watch for our ‘Girl of the Year, but Not’ to be getting some Christmas outfits, Nashville style.

I didn’t find any books about Nanea, which does make you wonder how they will squeeze her in in 2017 with all of these other book releases.
