Well, it is already September (almost October, actually) and we have seen almost nothing on the next Girl of the Year. Last year, by this time, we had the leaked Lea mini doll, about 3 outfits from her collection, and more continuing to pop up. And now? I have found a few clues to share with you all – clues about the next GOTY, or Tenney Grant, the rumored “modern” doll coming out next year.
Before we start, I just want to state that I am assuming that GOTY 2017 is not Tenney Grant. I am assuming that these are two different dolls with different collections. This has been neither confirmed nor denied by American Girl, so please don’t accept this as a true fact. I could be completely wrong. 😉
Let’s start with the leaks. This set was leaked on Ebay a week or two ago.
This is a plaid shirt and a leather skirt with embossed designs. This outfit is VERY southwestern. It may look like a normal AG outfit (despite the fact that there’s no pink XD) but look a little closer at the buttons. The buttons are on the opposite side of girls clothing. That can only mean one thing.
The shirt is for a boy doll.
It does look very boy-ish, after all. I mean, the blue and green is not as vibrant as the girl doll clothing.
So I’m guessing the shirt is for Tenny Grant’s brother, and the skirt is a piece from one of Tenney’s outfits, since Tenney and her brother are rumored to be into music and live in Tennessee.
The next leak we have is an adorable kitten.
This is just a leak, I don’t know for sure if this is for GOTY 2017 or Tenney Grant. But I think it’s super cute so I wanted to share it. 🙂 It’s so chubby!
Some of the clues I’ve found are from American Girl themselves! American Girl has been very active on their Instagram lately – including their “stories” section. If you don’t have an account, Instagram “stories” is a quick and easy way to post a photo of what you’re up to without making an actual post on your account. They stay up for 24 hours before disappearing.
Here are some of the photos they’ve shared recently.
A cute lab.. 😍
So from this picture we can observe that they are making a movie or short film of some type.
A guitar fits perfectly in with Tenney’s story.
This looks like they are shooting in a barn. I immediately thought of Felicity, but she doesn’t really fit here. XD In Tennessee I think there are a lot of ranches and horses, so this could fit in Tenney’s story.
And if this movie or short film is for Tenney, I’m guessing this is the actor that plays her. She is very pretty. 😀 Notice her shirt. It’s very similar to the one above in the leak.
And here’s a picture of the actor with a tambourine. This also fits in her story of her loving music.
And this last one is another shot of a guitar.
It’s always hard to know what fits and what doesn’t when you don’t have any proof and you’re trying to find out clues for the GOTY. But I really enjoy it and love finding out the news!
What are your thoughts on all of this?

P.S. Sorry for my 2 week break. I have an upcoming Etsy shop release this Sunday and I have so much to do. And school.. 😐 But I’m going pretty good. And all you Guiding Compass lovers.. The finale is in the works!!
