Meet the Dolls

Meet the dolls! I (American Girl Doll Artist) own Kanani, Kaya, Jamie, Sarah, Isabelle, Grace, Lea, Taylor, Rebecca, and Harper Luna.  Catlover02 owns Bethany, Josefina, Jessica, Spring, Grace, Pippa, Amaya, Camille, Renae, Mallorie and Vanessa. Read the profiles or look at the list of dolls at the bottom of the page.



I received Sarah for Christmas 2009. I wanted an American Girl doll for a very long time. Sarah caught my eye in the catalog that year. I loved her to death. Her hair used to be wavy, but now it’s stick straight. Maybe it’s a good sign. Sarah knows she’s been loved, and thinks her straight hair is something positive. Colorful hair add-ons make her hair look more colorful and interesting.

Sarah’s Favorites:

Food: Chicken.

Color: Blue

Movie: Tangled.

Outfit: Isabelle’s coral sweater with jeans.

Allergies: Just seasonal, nothing major.

What she really wants: Nothing. She’s pretty content with her life. 🙂

Fun Fact: Sarah’s eyes are sky blue. They are so blue that when I take a picture of her, her eyes look like their glowing! Sarah’s name means Princess.



I bought Kaya with my own money right after my birthday in 2012. I had liked Kaya for years, and I still do now. I love her unique face. Her cheeks make her look like a toddler. Even though she is the second oldest, she will always be the baby of the family. 🙂

Kaya’s Favorites:

Food: Salmon and berries.

Colors: Blue, orange and red.

Movie: She hasn’t watched any.

Outfit: Her LE Modern Shawl outfit.

Allergies: She thinks she’s allergic to sugar.

What she really wants: A puppy.

Fun Fact: Kaya’s birthday is one week after mine. March 9th. 🙂 Kaya doesn’t know much English, but is learning more all of the time. She doesn’t want to go to school.



I bought her with my own money on my birthday. My family went to the American Girl store and I got her. I opened her the next day though, so her birthday is March 3rd. I love her skin and curly hair. She looks great in anything pink! Jamie tends to act before she thinks, and will create sticky situations with herself stuck in the middle. Jamie loves pink, sparkles and anything fashionable. That’s why she was the first doll to have earrings.

Jamie’s Favorites:

Food: Coffee.

Colors: Pink and Purple (she’s a girly girl).

Movie: Aristocats.

Outfit: Isabelle’s scrunch pants with any shirt, “as long as it’s cute and fashionable”.

Allergies: None.

What she really wants: The latest clothes!

Fun Fact: Jamie’s twin sister is Cecile. They are almost look-alikes, but Cecile has green eyes and Jamie has brown.




I got Kanani used off of Ebay for $215 with free shipping. I had always liked Kanani. My family started allowances in 2012, so I just missed her. I got her in 2013.  She came all the way from Pennsylvania. I paid for most of her, but because it was almost Christmas, my parents paid for some of it too. Her birthday is December 9th. Her personality is gentle and caring. She loves nature and is always up for adventure!

Kanani’s Favorites:

Food: Coconut Shave Ice

Colors: Light green and light blue.

Movie: Frozen.

Outfit: Her light blue floral sundress.

Sports: Swimming and Paddleboarding

Allergies: Wheat.

What she really wants: her own dog, or an American Girl doll.

Fun Fact: Kanani used to have curly hair, but her old owner made it straight.



I bought Isabelle with my own money in June, 2014. We took a trip to the American Girl store in Kansas City. You can read more about it here.  I love Isabelle. She is my only doll with blond hair, and light skin. She has green eyes like Kanani. Isabelle’s personality is cheerful and confident. She loves cats and has her own kitten named Tutu.

Isabelle’s Favorites:

Food: Bagels and Coffee.

Color: Purple and Coral.

Movie: Her Isabelle movie.

Outfit: Her meet outfit.

Allergies: Chocolate.

What she really wants: To be a famous ballerina when she grows up.

Fun Fact: Isabelle adores her gold glitter shoes. Though she generously shares them with her sisters.



Grace is the one with big ideas. Alway coming up with new and better ideas, she loves being the boss of her own baking business: La Petite Patisserie. Her trip to Paris changed her life for the better and helped her expand her baking skills. Being a baker comes in handy in the Small Dolls in a Big World household. She doesn’t mind a bit helping them out by putting breakfast (and dessert) on the table each and every day.

How I got Grace: In 2014, I had just bought Isabelle. I told Catlover02 that she could get the next GOTY, unless, she looked like me. And what do you know – she did! Grace Thomas stole my heart in December 2014 when she was leaked. I told myself I couldn’t get her – Catlover02 and I had never had duplicate dolls

Food: Raspberry Tarts

Color: Light Blue

Movie: Grace Stirs Up Success

Outfit: Grace’s Travel Coat

Animal: Puppies!

Allergies: Wheat and Dairy

Best Friend: Isabelle

Hobbies: Baking, baking, and more baking!

What she really wants: Take another trip to Paris someday.

Fun Fact: Grace’s lips are darker than any other doll, including Catlover02’s Grace!



Lea Clark has a long past – she’s a Jedi! Bearing a blue lightsaber, she’s fought a knight of Ren and went on a huge journey to save her sisters. You can read all about her adventure in “The Guiding Compass” series. She is very determined, like Tay, and due to her past, had a hard time accepting her new sisters when she arrived. However, she grew used to then and now treasures her new family. Lea is shy, and is prone to stand back in the conversation, but once she gets warmed up, she’s fine.

How I got Lea: Lea is the 7th doll in the family. I bought her with my own allowance and money I’d earned through Etsy. My family went to the AG store and I got to pick her out along with her exclusive collection and ear piercings. I told myself not to like Lea because I needed to buy some things for Kaya and Kanani’s collections, but when she was leaked, I knew I’d end up buying her.

Birthday: January 24th

Lea’s Favorites:

Food: Frappechinos.

Color: Yellow

Movie: The Force Awakens

Outfit: Her meet outfit

Animals: Parrot

Allergies: None

Best Friend: Tay

Hobbies: Imaginary lightsaber dueling (against herself), and photography.

What she really wants: To be a powerful Jedi

Fun Fact: Tay and Lea are best buddies. In “The Guiding Compass,” Lea actually found Tay and they went off on a grand adventure to fight an evil Sith before coming back home to live with the dolls.



Taylor (also known as Tay because “Taylor sounds too girly)  is the ultimate tomboy. Want her to wear something pink? You’ll have to beg. Tay’s involved in many sports, her favorite of which is soccer. She can’t stand pink dresses, and is the first to get into a quarrel with Jamie. The two are known to knock heads on fashion choices. Tay is very determined, confident, and doesn’t hesitate to tell other people how she feels. Oh, and don’t call her cute — She’ll be out for revenge.

How I got Tay: American Girl held a contest in the winter of 2016 called the World by Girls contest. I entered in a drawing and a paragraph I created about a place in the world that would help girls. You can learn more about my entry here. In February, AG picked the winners, and I won first place in my age category! I won $500 worth of prizes, one of which was Truly Me #64: Tay. I had to wait quite a while for her, but it was worth it. Tay has a very special place in my heart and I will treasure her always. 🙂

Tay’s Favorites:

Food: Literally anything.

Color: Anything but pink. Preferably green.

Movie: Rogue One. (She’s a Star Wars fanatic just like Lea)

Outfit: Her Guiding Compass Outfit and her soccer uniform.

Animal: Owls and Lions.

Allergies: None.

Best Friend: Lea

Hobbies: Soccer, Basketball, Hockey, she’ll try anything.

What she really wants: To have fun, be free, and be herself. And watch Rogue One.

Fun Fact: Tay was the first Asian to be welcomed into the Small Dolls in a Big World family.


Rebecca Rubin

Rebecca Rubin rivals Jamie for having the most dramatic flair in the Small Dolls in a Big World household! Her love for acting clearly shows in her day to day life as she goes about singing and twirling. Always practicing for her next school play, Rebecca sometimes drives her sisters crazy. Family traditions are very treasured to her, and she is always in the mood to celebrate any holiday. Rebecca is confident, VERY animated, and loves to be the star of the show. When summertime rolls around, you will most likely find her at the carnival – one of her favorite places – at the top of the ferris wheel. She’s always up for an adventure!

How I got Rebecca: Last fall I had just watched The Hobbit movie trilogy, and I was in love, to say the least. I toyed around with making a custom doll, and decided to try to create a custom Tauriel doll. My mom picked up a Rebecca doll for me when she went to the store, and brought her home. I opened her up, and thought she was adorable. I had, anyways, always had a soft spot for her. Over the next few days I couldn’t bear to think of customizing her and pulling off her beautiful brown curls, so I didn’t. Rebecca was then a part of the family.

Rebecca’s favorites:

Food: Bread rolls and puffed rice treats.

Color: Purple and dark blue.

TV Show: doesn’t watch much TV.

Outfit: Her play outfit complete with a straw hat.

Animals: Any baby animals, especially kittens.

Allergies: Occasional spring/summer allergies.

Best friend: Kaya

Hobbies: Acting, singing, entertaining others.

What she really wants: To be surrounded by family.

Fun fact: Once while riding a Ferris Wheel, the ride broke, leaving Rebecca in her basket hanging at the top! She got over her fear of heights quite quickly.


Harper Luna

Harper Luna (sometimes just called Harper) is a sweet girl who is 12 years old. She is obsessed with having everything clean and organized, which is why one of her hobbies is interior designs. It’s how she can get everything “just so.” Harper also loves to play her keyboard, and her habit of being a night owl really shines whenever she’s working on a new song. She’ll stay up late practicing, or trying to find the right notes. Harper gets anxiety when meeting new people, but once she warms up, thinks get a whole lot better. To be honest, Harper doesn’t totally love living with the dolls but she loves them all dearly.

How I got Harper: With the new permapanties on Truly Me dolls, AG was planning on switching all the dolls over to having permanent underwear. I bought Harper because I’ve always thought she was cute, and I had seen several adorable photos of her on Instagram. When AG had free shipping in the spring of 2017, I knew I had to snatch her up. I don’t regret it. 🙂

Harper’s Favorites:

Food: Anything grown in a garden, preferably strawberries and watermelon.

Color: Light green and pink.

TV Show: HG TV

Outfit: Any T-shirt and shorts is fine, as long as it’s paired with her gardening hat.

Animal: Birds in general.

Allergies: None.

Best Friend: Isabelle

Hobbies: Interior design, playing keyboard, gardening.

What she really wants: To live in a perfect, mess free home, but she’s doubtful it’ll ever happen.

Fun Fact: Harper used to wear glasses until she got contacts when she was 11.


Felicity Merriman

Felicity (or Lissie as she demands to be called) is probably the most mischievous doll in the SDBW household. Always climbing on things, riding horses bareback, she is constantly being told to settle down. She will always cheer on a sister or friend in a competition – Felicity loves winning, but she is also a good sport and will congratulate others even after a loss. If you can’t find her, just start baking something. She will show up wherever there’s food, pie to be exact.

Felicity’s Favorites:

Food: PIE

Color: Blue

TV Show: What’s TV?

Outfit: A graphic top and shorts.

Animal: Horses

Allergies: None.

Best Friend: Kaya

Hobbies: Keeping the pantry stocked, horse-riding.

Catlover02’s Dolls:



I received Bethany from my parents on Christmas of 2009. I remember seeing the two rectangular boxes (One for me, and the other for my sister) and somehow recognizing them as American Girl Doll boxes, though I don’t remember how I’d known what size they were, because I didn’t even play with dolls that much back then. I didn’t know how to care for Bethany properly until about 2012 and by then I had already used plastic brushes to brush her hair. But Bethany doesn’t really care how her hair looks, as long as it’s out of the way. 🙂

What she likes: You could say Bethany is the troublemaker of the fam. She loves spying on her sisters, playing pranks and fooling around. She loves food — a lot — and will eat almost anything, especially if it’s something Grace bakes. She likes to play the most dirty, outdoor games, usually that involve mud. While she has a small attention span, she loves playing video games with Vanessa and writing the most ridiculous short stories.

Age: 15

Food(s): Um.. Pretty much all foods

Color(s): White, Gray and Blue.

TV Show: America’s Funniest Home Videos

Hobby: Annoying her sisters

Pet(s): Praline

Favorite Blog:

Fun Fact: She’s my only doll with line eyebrows.



I bought Josefina on a vacation down to Texas in 2012. I hadn’t saved up enough money for her, but my Mom allowed me to purchase her at the AG store, and then open her when I had the money. It was a long, LONG wait, but I finally opened her up and and happily introduced her to Bethany. She was very easy to care for, as her hair was in a braid most of the time, and I had just learned that plastic brushes ruined doll hair.

What she likes: Josefina is very quiet and rarely speaks loudly. But her pretty voice is heard once in a while when she hums or sings, usually when working. Though she doesn’t chatter much, she is very responsible and does quite well at her job of ordering her sisters around with chores and jobs. She loves the outdoors in any type of weather, and spends most of her free time in the sun or around her plants. Her clothing style is a little more old-fashioned than Jessica would like, but she still wears modern clothes once in a while.

Age: 14

Food(s): Tamales

Color(s): Yellow, White and Green

Animal(s): Baby Goats and Chickens <3

Possession(s): Her Nina doll (Mini Josefina)

Pet(s): Sombrita

Hobby(s): Gardening, Cooking, and Pet-Sitting

Best Friend: Kaya

Favorite Blog:

Fun Fact: Josefina has removable earrings, and can wear all the earrings made for the Truly Me dolls.



Jessica was my third doll that I bought in 2013, on my sister’s birthday trip to the AG store. We both bought MYAG dolls, and Jessica was the closet look-alike I could get, at the time. She also gave me InnerstarU access, which I used a LOT. Jessica was bought on the same day as Jamie, so the two are best buds, though it’s usually Jamie who’s leading them into trouble, and Jessica who follows right along with her.

What she likes: Jessica can be a drama queen when it comes to working, but she is queen of shopping, and usually drags one or two of her sisters along with her. She spends half her time shopping, digging for the best deals. One of her favorite things to do with her sister, Mallorie, is online shop, though Jessica prefers being able to feel the quality of fabric. Some of her favorite words include “coupon”, “sale” and “fashionable”. 😂 😂 😂

Age: 15

Food(s): Low-calorie, sugar-free waffles (Of course, only Jessica….)

Color(s): Gray and Pink

Animal(s): Seahorses

TV Show: Freddy Flints Fashion Tips

Hobby(s): Browsing at the mall, or shopping online

Best Friend(s): Jamie and Mallorie

Favorite Blog:

Fun Fact: Jessica considers her skin so pure that she doesn’t eat too much sugar, in case she ruins her perfect complexion. 😂



Spring was my fourth doll that I bought in June of 2014. She was my second MYAG doll, giving me yet another access code the InnerstarU, though I rarely used it because of the progress I already had on Jessica’s account. I was drawn to Spring because of her beautiful hair, though I had no idea how to care for it. It was a hassle at first, but a few tutorials taught me how to correctly curl it and now her hair looks as beautiful as ever. D

What she likes: Spring loves all animals, but has to settle with living with only a few. If I didn’t give her a limit, the house would become a barn. She’s very helpful and perky most of the time, and helps Josefina around the house. She has yet to come across someone as obsessed with pets as she is, but she’s fine with it, as long as she gets to keep a few indoors. Spring is also an amazing crafter. Give her paper and scissors and she’ll come up with a masterpiece a few minutes later. 😂 😂 

Age: 13 1/2

Food(s): Raspberry Cheesecake

Color(s): Coral and Aqua

Animal(s): Puppies and Dolphins

Hobby(s): Crafting and sewing

Pet(s): She has three. Coconut, Jade and Tutu

Best Friend(s): Isabelle and Sophie

Favorite Blog:

Fun Fact: Spring was actually bought on the first day of summer. 🙂



Grace is very special to me because I worked the hardest to save up for her. Around late 2014, leaks of Grace and her collection were appearing and I thought she was just so gorgeous and unique. So I did tons of chores around the house, hoping to buy her as soon as I could. Soon I had enough for her and I bought her online. She arrived on January 12th, 2015. I was so excited to open her and play with her. She has probably gotten the most play of any of my dolls. She inspired my sister and I to bake a whole variety of different sweets, including a few French desserts! 🙂

Fun Fact: She was my first Girl of the Year doll, and the wardrobe is full of her clothing collection. Her *cough* *cough* very large clothing collection.



Pippa was my fifth doll that I bought on February 20th, 2016. I wasn’t originally going to buy her, mostly because I had just bought the last GOTY, but Lea was so unique and pretty that she I finally bought her. Though, I decided to change her name. I purchased her around the time I was – and still am – obsessed with Star Wars, so she is my Star Wars fangirl. She had a special affection for droids, especially BB-8, and loves writing fanfictions about the characters.

Age: 14 3/4

Nickname(s): Pip, Pip-Pip, Button

Favorite Blog:

Fun Fact: Her compass necklace is actually from her sister, Amaya.



Amaya was a surprise addition. In June, all of the Truly Me doll were on sale for only $98. I had been eyeing #58, hoping to add a darker toned doll to my collection and this was the perfect chance. The problem was, I had no name for her and I didn’t want to hurry into buying a doll right after I had just bough Pippa in February. But I saw that #58 was backordered and I ended up purchasing her, knowing that I’d have at least a month to work out her name and personality. But that wait was very, very long. In that time, I switched from one name to another, until I finally decided on the name, Amaya, the day before she arrived on June 27th, 2015. Amaya takes ballet and tap, but she also enjoys being outside with her sisters.

Age: 15

Favorite Animal: Persian cats

Nickname: Birdie

Allergies: Poison Ivy

Favorite Doll Blog:

Best Friend: Pippa and Jamie

Fun Fact: Amaya was my first African-American doll and her hair is actually the easiest the take care of.



I bought Camille as a birthday present for myself on September 30th during a trip to the AG store. I had really been against the idea of the Wellie Wishers from the start, but they were growing on me. A lot. I almost considered buying Kendall, as a little sister of Amaya, but I just really loved Camille’s bright expression and adorable outfit.

What she likes: Camille may be the smallest of the family, but she really can be a big annoyance. She especially enjoys bugging the “big girls” and following Pippa (Or Mallorie) everywhere. She has a giant imagination, and will spend large amounts of time outside helping fairies cross the street or planting undersea gardens with mermaids.

Age: 5

Movie(s): Finding Dory and Finding Nemo

Animal(s): Mermaids…? And Seahorses

Renae is my eighth addition to my doll family. I bought her on January 6th, 2017 and fell in love with her beautiful Sonali face mold and amber eyes at the store. Her website photo wasn’t too impressive, but in person she is so adorable and very photogenic. Renae is the quietest girl in my doll family. She is very shy and especially non-talkative around strangers, unless the subject is books. She loves reading and spends most of her free time writing short stories, which almost always involve herself as the main character. She’s also a big daydreamer, and enjoys sitting somewhere quiet imagining she’s in a galaxy far, far away.

Mallorie is the princess of the doll house. She’s a total beauty queen and is an expert in all things dress-up. She loves pretending to be her favorite princesses and twirling throughout the house and while she isn’t very talkative around others her own age, she loves being around little chubs, and babysits once or twice a week for her neighbors. She also doodles a ton, usually carrying a notebook and pencil in case she happens to be suddenly inspired.

Age: 13

Favorite Food: Most sweets, but she loves cake pops

Best Friend: Camille and Grace

Hobbies: Babysitting, shopping online and helping Grace bake

Favorite Doll Blog:

Fun Fact: Though Mallorie likes to appear as a perfect little princess, she loves pigging out with Vanessa to watch Youtube videos every now and then.


Vanessa Eve, or just Nessa, arrived at our house on March 25th, 2017 full of attitude. She loves vlogging about everyday life, photography and making her own stop-motion videos with her sister’s AG dolls. Vanessa’s not really a drama queen, but she loves acting and is very talented in that department. While she can be outgoing and likes socializing with other, sometimes she just likes to be alone, editing photos or a new video with a cup of coffee.

Winnie Claire

Winnie Claire’s spirited personality and stunning looks make her one bossy beauty queen. She’s all about grace, poise and fashion! As one of the oldest of the girls, Winnie is often controlling and moody, and is certain to make things go just the right way. (Which is usually her way…) 😬😂 Though she appears to be all tough and confident, she really has a soft spot for Jessica, and enjoys spending time with her favorite sister. Her days are filled with online college classes, meetings with friends at Starbucks and on quests to find the hottest new trends.

Favorite Doll Blog:

Fun Fact: Although Nanea’s gorgeous curls look flawless, it’s usually the help of her sisters that keep them that way. She despises brushing her hair and prefers it down instead of styling.


Wisteria Talla

I began planning a custom doll in winter of 2017. I knew I wanted her wig to be dramatic, and I found the perfect fit on during their Black Friday sale. It wasn’t until that spring that I actually purchased her. I’d noticed how cute all of the Josefina face mold customs looked on IG, and decided to use that for the base. When she arrived, I quickly set to work removing her original wig and replacing it with her lavender locks. I added a few freckles here and there and voila! My very first custom!

What she likes: Wisteria obviously loves pastel colors, and it shows with her dramatically dyed hair. During the summer, she works her own business: Homemade ice cream! She has so much fun coming up with new flavors and treats for her customers, and she always greets everyone with a smile. Some other hobbies include singing, reading and blogging.

Age: 15

Coral is a renamed used Isabelle doll I received from a friend who didn’t play with dolls anymore. She was in pretty good condition, so I thought, ‘Why not?’ I’d always thought this particular GOTY was a bit too plain for my liking, but when I took her out to photograph her, I found I was horribly mistaken. Her eyes are just too gorgeous and I can’t get enough of her beautiful blonde hair! It’s so easy to braid and style! 😍

What she likes: Coral loves just about anything outdoors, be it fishing, hiking, swimming or gardening, she’ll enjoy every second of it. She definitely has a major green thumb, and seems to be the only girl who can keep anything alive for a long period of time.

Age: 14

Kordelia “Kordi” Alana

I bought Kordi while I was helping my Mom with her treatment in Arizona. We got to go to the AG store shortly after a release and I was so excited to see all the new items! While I was there I had to decide between #80 and #79. Obviously, I decided on the latter. I just couldn’t help but fall in love with her hazel eyes; plus I didn’t have a Jess mold in my collection. I was a little stressed picking her out… so many #79s had wonky eyes, but I finally settled on this gorgeous girl.

What she likes: You will never find Kordi far from her little sweetheart puppy, Teddy!  When she moved from Hawaii to California with her parents, she met and rescued Teddy from the local shelter. Now she loves helping out there on the weekends, and can’t help but to fall in love with every orphaned puppy she meets. ❤️ She also loves watching movies, especially superhero movies

Darica (pronounced Dare-i-ka) has the reddest hair in the house. She is TM 61. My mom bought Darica for herself as a birthday present at the American Girl store in June of 2015. Darica’s first appearance was made in a fashion show. Darica loves fashion and anything glittery. Her personality is similar to Jamie’s.

  14. All your dolls are lovely….I think that Jamie and Nevaeh would make great friends!

  15. I might be considering buying My AG 33, or Spring. How do you manage her curls and are they hard to manage?

  38. Daisymermaid says

    Why is there a strip of hair in catlover2’s Grace that is a much lighter blond then the rest?

  39. Daisymermaid says

    I meant why is there a strip of hair on Catlover02’s Grace that is much lighter brown than the rest?

  40. Emily Anderson says

    I was just reading this again to see if you had added Goty 2016, and I realized that Spring is really similar to me!!! Personality wise. She is so cute!

  41. Daisymermaid says

    When I was looking on Peppermint Pursuits, in one of the pictures it looked like Kanani had a scar! Is that really there?

  42. Daisymermaid says

    The Grace dolls are so pretty! I highly regret not buying her. 🙁

  43. Is Jessica Truly Me #29?

  44. Annabelle says

  45. I <3 all your dolls!!!

  46. Will samanthalover be doing posts now, too?

  47. I love your dolls, and your Etsy shop! you make such cute things! and your drawings, well there just.. Totally Amazing!!!

  48. Katherine says

    I have Isabelle, and Katie, but I named her Cassady. These are beautiful pictures, too! How are you so good?!p.s. When are you going to put Taylor on there?

    • I haven’t taken her profile picture yet, so I will put it up as soon as I do that. Thank you so much! Lots of practice. 😉

      • Katherine says

        Ok, well I’m sure that Tay’s picture is going to be magnificent, just like the rest! Yup, as they say practice makes perfect!( though I’m not sure who ‘they’ are.😉)

  49. Hey, is #46(Jamie) retiring? Because #46 is “no longer available” on the AG website.

  50. I think it is funny that Grace is allergic to dairy, because you use dairy in baking all the time. 🙂

  51. Actually, I forgot to say, I don’t just have Isabelle, and Cassady. (Katie) I have McKenna Brooks, Caroline Abbott, JLY 25, JLY 14, and Marisol Luna. ~ Katherine

  52. American Girl Doll Artist can you make Tay’s profile soon and can you make her Birthday June 13? I know this is a strange request and I hope I didn’t sound rude but please consider it….Thanks!

    • Oh, I will soon. 🙂 She just needs to have a photoshoot done first, so she can get a profile picture. I think I’ll make her birthday the day I opened her and she came in the mail. 😉 Thanks for your request, it’s not rude at all. I really appreciate your interest in my dolls! 🙂

  53. Quick Question: Who is Sophie?(The sophie on Samantha lovers page)

  54. Hi! Your dolls are so pretty! I am thinking of getting truly me #49 a.k.a Sarah, what do you think? I am thinking of naming her Sky or Ocean.

  55. Oh my gosh, Tay’s profile picture is GORGEOUS!!! That shirt looks amazing on her! 😀
    Rogue One…. I can’t WAIT for that movie to come out!!! *dies*

  56. Tay’s profile is really funny! She looks so cute I MEAN, great in that picture.

  57. Hi! My mom told me few days ago that she likes Truly Me Doll #33(Spring). She just loves the aura of the doll!

  58. That’s so funny, I have a doll I named Tailor as well! She’s # 59, and nothing like your Tailor. Mine is all about love and blah blah BLAH! lol! I also have Saige, Rebecca, Grace, Lea, Kaya, and I’m getting either Melody or GOTY the day she comes out. Or I’ll get Melody for holidays and GOTY day she comes out. Only time will tell!

  59. When will Julie’s page be up? She is my favorite doll.

  60. Camille is so cute! I think mermaid colors are orange and blue (H20- the TV show)

  89. Amaya is gorgeous!!!! I’m thinking about getting TM #58, are there any special tips or things I should know? 😀

    • Well, on most of the TM #58’s I’ve seen, the hair is just out-of-control first thing out of the box. So the first thing I did was spray her hair down with the water, and part it the way I liked. It’s best if you rarely comb her hair, because I’ve found it can straighten the curls. Hope this helps, and I’m hope you find an amazing TM #58! 😉
