Here are a few things you might not have known about the dolls.
While some items are discontinued, many other products are added to keep American Girl interesting and engaging, and to celebrate who girls are today.
To maintain consistency with the characters through time, almost nothing was retired by Pleasant Company. While several things were remodeled or retooled, they were not completely removed from being purchased.
The major exceptions during these years were the original white body dollswhich were removed to give all the characters flesh-toned bodies, and the Limited Edition Historical Outfitswhich, by their nature, were only intended to be offered in small quantities for a limited time. Keeping each historical character's items consistent—thus to show how things changed through time—was a policy kept until Mattel purchased American Girl.
While they maintained this pattern for the initial years, items later began to retire more often and with less of a pattern among the Historicals. For a number of years, retirements were heavily skewed towards Addy, Kirsten, Josefina, and Felicity.
Addy, for example, has had every single item in her original school collection retired. When Kaya was released inFelicity was removed from paper catalogs. She was only sold online through the website, and items in her collection were massively retired. She was not included in story expansions or collections as well.
Several items but not all of them were rereleased when the movie and Elizabeth Cole were released and Felicity's collection was revamped. These were given end dates at release; it is stated that items are only available generally in their limited design until December of that year or while supplies last.
Historical Character Archiving On October 6,it was leaked by American Girl Customer Service that Samantha Parkington and her entire collectionincluding Nellie O'Malley and her own collectionwould be archived -- they would be put away for an unknown number of years, and American Girl's press releases were vague as to whether they would even be rereleased.
The official announcement was made on Oct 13, and soon after, a website was launched to share memories of Samantha.
Nellie dolls sold out completely on December 5, ; Samantha dolls remained on constant backorder until selling out on Feb 3, All item purchases were limited to three maximum of each item to prevent hoarding for reselling.
Books about Samantha and Nellie, as well as their mini dolls and the movieremained available. Samantha and her collection was officially archived on May 31,with the release of Rebecca Rubin. A letter was sent out by American Girl on September 25,that Kirsten Larson and her entire collection would be archived with the exception of her books and mini doll.
A press release from American Girl regarding Kirsten's archival was announced on October 1, Her collection was officially archived January 1, Felicity's entire collection was archived on March 28, Molly's entire collection was archived on January 1, On May 4th,American Girl announced they would archive Caroline's entire collection only her books and mini doll will remain available.
With the release of BeForeverolder books for all characters that transitioned into the line were rereleased in the newer two-volume format.
Already archived characters had their books gradually removed from stores, though some are still available on the website. All Mini Dolls that had cloth bodies were also retired and only characters carrying forward to BeForever were given the new all-vinyl versions untilwhen limited rereleases of Molly, Kirsten, and Felicity in her second meet outfit were released.An American Girl book series.
