*Review* OG Having a Ball Swimsuit

Linda has a review for us.

There are six pieces: whale print swimsuit, beach towel, beach ball, sunglasses and pair of sandals.

I like this outfit, the swimsuit fits a little snug.

The shoes can be difficult to get over the heel of the foot.

The towel is too small and more like a hand towel than a beach towel.

Here's a cute project to make a bed for your castle!

DIY - Castle for Matilda Marchmont

What a great photo prop for Matilda!

It's large enough for her to live inside too. The entire structure can be painted with acrylic paint. I found this one at Hobby Lobby.

Or make your own out card board boxes!

*In Store Report* AG Expansion into Mexico

As reported back in October 2014, AGP is expanding into Mexico

"We are excited to become American Girl's exclusive partner for the Mexican market, launching for spring 2015. We have an aggressive growth strategy for the next years, launching not only shop-in-shop boutiques but a whole experience for the Mexican girls. I truly believe that the American Girl concept and its exceptional value will resonate with the Mexican consumer," said Ernesto Izquierdo, commercial director from El Palacio de Hierro.  

The first two American Girl shop-in-shop boutiques will open in summer 2015 at El Palacio de Hierro's Perisur.

Followed by Interlomas locations in Mexico City, followed by a third boutique at the Polanco location in fall 2015. 
Still no update on an official opening date for these store locations.

*NEWS* Josefina Journey Book Pre-Order + Possible Cover

Possible New Cover LINK


RUMORED here, a pair of factory rejected Josefina shoes from an ebay listing. This could possibly end up as part of her collection in August in a different color.  

DIY - Doll Log Cabin for Kirsten

Make Kirsten her own log cabin from a cardboard box and a collection of paper towel tubes! This is a child size cabin, keep in mind that a 16" - 20" doll cabin would be 1/3 the size.
