WELCOME 2016 AND THE AMERICAN GIRL OF THE YEAR, LEA CLARK!
I went downtown to the Vancouver location of American girl today to see the reveal of the new Girl of the Year, Lea Clark! It was a lot of fun seeing Lea and all her new things! She is a beautiful girl, with lots of long curly hair in a dark blonde or light brownish color with sun kissed highlights. She has hazel eyes and the Josefina mold. All in all she is a very pretty doll! What was disappointing was that they were NOT giving out any promos like the US stores....sigh....at the price point we pay in Canada, one would think a promo would be a given! I took lots of photos and there were a lot of people buying her when I was there! American Girl is supporting wildlife and $1.00 of each of Lea's pets sold up to $100,000.00 will be donated to the World Wildlife fund as well as a sizable donation of $50,000.00 that American Girl is donating to the fund in addition to the money collected from the sale of the stuffed toys. Lea's story consists of a trip to the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil where she practices her photographer skills! Her wardrobe to date is very tropical like.
On an interesting note...Grace items are still being sold in the store...evidently they were told to move them out of the Girl of the Year area but that they could continue to sell to avoid sending them back! I was told this was the first time they have been advised to continue reselling a retired girl of the years things. Currently what is left is selling at approximately 20% off and they have more things in the back they will bring out if you ask....I saw a lady ask and they went to get what she was asking for!
I somehow forgot to take pictures but they also have available the new Valentines dress, I think but am not positive that it was $38.00 C. It is very cute and they also have the new Valentine's t-shirt which comes in an envelope and I believe was $16.00 and is a really pretty pink color!
