*FEATURE* 1994 Pleasant Company Catalog - Addy's Collection
























*****
A few from more recent catalogs.










Sometimes I wonder what Addy would have looked like as a young woman. I came across this gorgeous photo on Pinterest not too long ago and thought, "what if this was Addy at age 18?"

  1. Oh I adore Addy thanks for posting pictures of her collection ! It's so sad how badly it got cut over the years :( I wish they wouldn't try to come out with all those new items and instead focus on bringing the original collections back ! Do You think she will be retired soon ? It seems we have to fear for all the original except maybe Kit for now it's very sad !

  2. Addy was the first AG books I ever read. I had 1, 3, and 6, but I didn't know what American Girl was. It didn't register that there were more books and more dolls. It wasn't until I got Kirsten's boxed set with her mini doll did I realize.
    I've read 1, 3, and 6 a million and two times!

  3. Because I'm a teenager, I was never alive to see Pleasant Company. PC is so amazing, and I wish AG still had these items. I think it's so sad that AG is entirely pushing away from their older items. Time to go EBay shopping! Lol

  4. Oh my goodness these items are amazing. I love the hairstyles Addy has, much more variety than newer catalog photos. I also like the texture on the gourd, was that just a pleasant company thing? I haven't actually read Addy's books, but those are on my list after I finish Kirsten's.

  6. I love Addy's stories and her collection. PC did have a huge selection of accessories for their dolls. I love Addy's winter accessories and her pudding set. Miss the doll accessories from older collections. I need to wait and see what new items AG might have for the new Beforever Addy. Love her new school outfit and pail. Hope they continue to add on as time goes on.

  7. I can remember completely drooling over Addy and her collection as a young girl. Her bed is still my favorite...so cozy!
