American Girl News: Retiring 2014 + Beforever Release ~SPOILER ALERT~

Hey girls!
As some of you may know, the other day American Girl posted this on their FaceBook:

Sadly, AG will be retiring 4 dolls at once: Ruthie, Ivy, C├ęcile and Marie-Grace.  Thankfully, none of these dolls/clothing were really on my wish list.  However, I'm very sad Ruthie is retiring, she is such a beautiful doll.  I assume the mini dolls and books will stay.  AG has not confirmed the date, some rumors say in a few months/weeks.
What do you girls think?  Is this fair of AG?  Were any dolls on your wish list?
Secondly, as mentioned in AG's FaceBook post, this fall they will be launching their new line of historical dolls-BeForever.  Here are a few pictures of BeForever:

What do you girls think of BeForever?  The books?  The outfits?  Like it or not?  Leave a comment below!


  1. I can't believe AG did this. I was kind of hoping it was just a rumor, but I guess not. Frankly, I am furious at them about the whole change. :(


  2. Yes, I was also disappointed about AG's Beforever line and retiring :-/

  3. I can't believe they're changing the books, too!

  4. I wish they weren't discontinuing Marie-Grace and Cecile. I mean, they're so beautiful, their dolls and outfits and everything...


Please say kind and respectful things. No cussing, swearing or anything in any way. If you do, your comment will not be published. Thanks! :)
