American Girl Doll Wellie Wishers
You may already know that American Girl is releasing an entire new doll line called the Wellie Wishers. A lot of people are asking why this new doll line is here and why is American Girl phasing out the twins? Well, over the years American Girl has gotten a lot of requests and feedback for a doll line for the younger girls. The Bittys are perfect for the girls under five who are learning how to take care of their dolls, but after that it’s time to jump right into the 18″ American Girl doll line if you want a doll you can stand and pose. However, the 18″ dolls are suggested for girls 8 and older. So, the Wellie Wishers are perfect for the younger girls who might not be ready to take care of a full 18″ doll priced at over $100. With their full vinyl bodies, they are easy to wipe clean and their eyes do not close like a regular 18″ AG doll. Don’t worry though, their hair is not rooted. They will wear the same type hair as the 18″ dolls, which will make it easy to brush and keep styled.
The American Girl Doll Wellie Wishers line is geared towards outside play and imagination. Each doll comes in a pair of rubber wellie boots which they are named after. Their books are focused in outdoor settings and will focus on the friendship of the five characters instead of just one. The new accessories coming are listed below and follow the same outdoor fun theme. Even though they share stories, their personalities are all their own! Each doll is listed below.
There will be a clothing line for girls. The outfits match the dolls and go up to a size 7. Wellie boots will also be available for girls and come clear so you can mix and match the socks to look like the dolls boots. I love this concept because it’s much more cost friendly to buy a few pairs of socks than it is several boots. Plus, you can get your own knee high socks and have even more of a variety!
As of now the only extra doll outfits are a pair of pajamas and a ballet outfit that you will see pictured below.
The new Wellie Wishers doll line comes out June 23rd and we can’t wait to incorporate them in our crafts and welcome them to our American Girl collection. The youngest in our crew is the most excited! I’m close behind.
Bunny & Hutch $42
The bunny and bunny hutch come as a set. It looks as if the ramp closes up. The bunny’s name is carrot and it’s unsure if the food bowl and carrots come with the set. Shall we replicate the hutch? It’s kinda disappointing that the bunny isn’t sold separately.
I can see imaginations running wild with this set! Replicate? I wonder if there will be different backdrops to change out? This could be a really fun piece for the kids!
Not the best pictures, but you get the idea. I personally love the concept of the playhouse! It’s wooden and comes with over 30 fun pieces. I was told the pink bench did come with the playhouse but I’m not sure about the green stand. Is it a garden bench or a snack stand?! I’m thinking(hoping) more of a food stand because I have seen new food items in some of the Wellie Wisher pictures and video. Replicate?!
**Update. I was able to enhance the photo slightly. The green stand IS a food stand! The writing on the top says “Mud Pies”. How cute is that?!
Because it’s a pixelated picture it’s hard to see, but is that Camille in the new pajamas?
Garden Party Furniture $58
Again, not the best picture. I’m not sure how many chairs are included, but if it’s anything like recent sets, it will only be two. So, table and chairs but not sure of anything else. Hoping for a few food items to be included. One can always hope.
Building Set $24
This set looks like it comes with a hammer, tape measure, safety glasses, an apron and scissors. Maybe a few more items we can’t see?
Nature Set $24
This set might come with binoculars, a compass, and a canteen. Maybe a few more items? What is she wearing around her waist? Looks like a nut fanny pack.
There could possible be more $24 accessory sets like a mermaid set, a tea set, and a clown act set.
