Someone said on their blog (I can’t remember which one) but they said they went to the American Girl store. The girl was having a hard time deciding between 2 dolls: Addy, and another one. I think they asked an employee for advice, and the employee recommended Addy, because she said Addy was going to be retired within a year or so.
If that’s true, I think some AA people will be really upset. Why can’t American Girl have 2 African American Beforever dolls at a time? Why just one? Also, if Addy is going to retire, it would be because of the new African American doll coming out on January 1st.
That’s also kind of confusing. Has American Girl ever released 2 important dolls on the same day? Maryellen just came out. It doesn’t make sense.
What do you think? Are you sad that Addy might be retired?
