Fall Festival: New American Girl Dolls {review}



I shared with you about the release of American Girl's newest historic dolls, Marie-Grace and Ce'cile not too long ago.


Since that post, I've been sent the dolls for review and wanted to share pictures of their lovely selves to make you "Oooh" and "Aahhh" along with me. The detail on these dolls is exquisite and now I'm hoping to get their accessory kits for myself so I can add a hat and gloves to their look.


 I always appreciate the great care that goes into packing these dolls. Even the hair is pulled back in a wig cap to keep it in its original style. I also love the different faces the girls have. They look similar but definitely have their own, defined look about them too.


 After I played with their hair a bit {Ce'cile's hair is SO neat}, I set them up for a photo shoot.


Ce'cile's eyes are just divine.


 She arrives in her lovely, teal, satin dress. I just love the pin tucked panel and the little rosettes. 


Look at the ribbon trim on the bottom of her dress! Again, the gorgeous detail grabs my attention right away. My mom is a seamstress so I have a trained eye for these sort of things. Also, the bloomers, socks, and boots are stunning.

Here's another look at Ce'cile's hair. I just loved playing with it. 

To make her outfit complete, I'll need to get her accessories and crinoline and chemise set. 


 Here is Marie-Grace! I love the pretty pink color of her dress and hair bows. The little ringlets at the side of her face are a darling touch as well.


Marie-Grace's dress is taffeta and has a very summery feel to it. 


Her boots are white to go with her outfit. I also noticed the hues of tangerine in her dress when I took this picture.

Marie-Grace also has accessories and the crinoline and chemise linked above go with her outfits as well.


Here's a better look at her hair. Isn't that braided style just adorable? 


Overall, I'm totally smitten with these dolls and have found a perfect shelf for them to be displayed on. These dolls are the first of their kind as they're best friends being released for sale together.

If you'd like to get these for yourself or a little one in your life, there are a couple different purchase options.

  1. Buy each doll separately with just the book {the way mine arrived} for $100 a piece.
  2. Buy each doll separately with their book and accessories included for $119. {this saves you $5 a doll over purchasing accessories independent of the dolls.}
  3. Buy the dolls together in the Best Friends Collection with their books and accessories for $234. {this option saves you $14 if you plan on purchasing both dolls.}
See more details on the American Girl page made for Ce'cile and Marie-Grace.

*From the website:
Cécile and Marie-Grace's 18-inch doll bodies are soft cloth; their heads and limbs are smooth vinyl. They're posable for hundreds of playtimes and can be treasured for years to come. Their books, Meet Cécile and Meet Marie-Grace, enhance playtime with stories of these girls growing up in 1853 New Orleans. They offer lessons about choices and friendship that still touch girls today. Their continuing stories are woven together in one six-book set and are written by two different authors.
It's not to early to begin your holiday shopping!!
