My dad is lucky. Well, in my eyes, possibly not in his. That was his second time at the American Girl Place. He wouldn't have gone if I didn't ask him but still. Lucky, lucky.
He bought some stuff for Molly and Emily because I asked him to. I gave him a piece of paper with all the things I'd like. I don't have Molly but I have Emily. One of the cutest best friend sets, one of the only. Infact, they aren't best friends. They're just friends. But American Girl made Emily over Susan and Linda so there wasn't 'favouritism' shown.
I, as well as many others, fear the archival of Molly and Emily. It was just pure luck for me they didn't decide to archive Molly and Emily over Felicity and Elizabeth. Because, although Molly has been there all along, ever since 1986, before I was born, I've picked the newer ones (Emily 2006, Ruthie 2008, Rebecca 2009). Molly was around for 20 years before Emily came along. Kit, for eight. And I got Rebecca the year she came out. I got them all in 2009 actually. I got Ruthie before Rebecca came out, Emily after Rebecca came out and then I finally took notice of the sweet face on the American Girl website and got her for Christmas.
Anyway, so if you can't guess or if you don't already know,
I'm getting Molly McIntire for Christmas! Why? Why do I suddenly decide to get her now? Why, when I've picked other dolls over her? Because, my dear friends, she's adorable. She's nice with the glasses, and absolutely amazing without them. I've always liked her and although she's not like... I don't know, as eye-catching and unique as my other dolls, I greatly fear her archival. I'd sometimes say, 'I can live without another doll' but then when acting out the Molly archival scene in my head. I know how much I would regret not getting her.
Some of my newer followers will be thinking "So? Can't you just order her when they announce the archival?" but no. I can't. I live in a different country, a country where American Girl has agrivatingly decided not to ship. Ireland. I've never visited America but I really, really want to. That's what makes my dad so lucky - in my eyes. I think he'd rather be home though.
Okay, this is just turning the corner down ramble road so without further ado, I will tell you what I'm getting.
- Molly McIntire doll + Book

- Molly's PJs

- Emily's Accessories.

P.S I've also pretty much decided to only get Historical items because they are the only dolls I have and modern stuff doesn't fit in with them!
