Countdown to Lea – 1 more day!

Come on people! You can make it 24 more hours, can’t you? That’s the spirit! Only 1 more day until Lea’s released!


Let’s take this time to spend time with our Grace dolls. Prepare her for her retirement, and for Lea’s debut. Remind your Grace doll that she’s not being forgotten (hopefully) and that you will still love her when Lea is released.

How did your Grace doll react? Tell us in the comments!

Oh, and for those of you who are going to Lea’s debut, would you be so kind as to send us a few store display photos from your trip? I am not going myself, and would love to have some photos to share. I understand if you’d prefer to post them on your own blog, but I just thought I’d ask.

My email is “agdollartist@”. Thanks!

P.S. Good luck getting to sleep tonight!

AG Doll Artist About AG Doll Artist

Hey, I'm Dara! I'm the main blogger here at Small Dolls in a Big World. I love sewing, drawing, and photographing my dolls. I started this blog in 2014 and have been blogging ever since. :) A lot of the time you can find me on Instagram where I share my latest work. (@americangirldollartist)


  1. My Grace is actually ok with Lea. She did a little post about it on my blog. 🙂 I am SO SO EXCITED!!! Lea is going to be here in 1 DAY! Oh, I’m so excited… 😀 All of my money this summer will be spent on her… he he! 😛 I really wish I could go to the store for her debut! Her Rainforest Hut is amazing!

  2. I don’t have grace, but I do have Saige. She’s always upset when a new GOTY comes along 😛

    So I guess I’ll spend time with her. Happy new year !!

  3. I don’t have Grace but I told my two AG dolls Maggie (Truly Me) And Kit Kittredge> They where very sad but then I told them that Lea is coming so they where happy after words! Thanks 🙂 🙂

  4. I will send you photos, but I will also post them on my blog!

  5. I am so excited but I’m not sure if I’m buying Lea yet. I REALLY WANTED KANANI so Lea might just be the answer, but I don’t know. I’m trying to save up and repaint my room too. What do u think?

    • Hm… How long do you think you will play with your doll? Longer then you’ll like your paint color? Kanani is pretty expensive on Ebay but you can get a pretty decent Kanani for $150+.

      • I don’t know because I’m slowly starting to grow out of American girl but, she is my dream doll. Maybe I should just say she is my last doll and buy most of her collection.☺️

  6. My mini Grace is super excited to meet Lea!!! She’s a little disappointed that she won’t be girl of the year anymore, but she certainly won’t be forgotten!
    I will be going to Lea’s debut, and I will send you some photos. 😉
    I watched the Good Morning America thing! It was awesome, and at the end all the girls who helped out got Lea for free!

    • Thank you kittymeow!
      Yes, I did watch it on youtube. I wish I got a free doll! 🙂 But, doesn’t everyone? 🙂

      • I watched it! Those girls were sooo lucky. Are you thinking of buying Lea? I’m not buying the doll, but I will definitely buy her camera and special occasion outfit! I am going to the AG store tomorrow and will most likely buy TM #59 with my own money!!! I am sooooo excited!!! Her name will be Brooke Rosalie Adams, and she’s named after 3 of the characters in my book that I wrote for Nanowrimo. Sorry this was so long!! I will try to email you pictures. 😀

  7. My Grace is VERY upset that she isn’t GOTY anymore, but my other dolls told her that she is just going to have to deal with having another doll in her place. Lea will be joining my doll family!
