*In Store Report* Samantha Doll + Book + Two Outfit Set - Costco


 I asked Diana to RUN to her local Costco and she was gracious to do it. She brings this report.

BeForever Samantha doll holiday set (like Caroline) includes book, and two outfits.





This is GORGEOUS! 



Here's Bitty Baby 12 piece set ... 



Thank you Diana!!!

  4. I'm thinking AG will archive Samantha next and very soon with the explanation it's so they can bring Felicity back.

    Then, having archived a white character, immediately archive Addy since they will then be "allowed" to.

    I'm expecting both archivals next year.

    I can't imagine AG wants Addy around for longer than that and they might need the time to actually get rid of the doll and outfits.

    1. Agreed. Apparently Addy products are supposed to be discontinued while supplies last. That discontinuing list has been around since April...

  10. Last time I was at Costco we had craft kits (including on for Lea), mini dolls with books, horse, sleepover set, and pets. Not catalog pets (including a grey cat), but I bet they will be soon. The Pomeranian started out as a Costco pet and is now in the catalog.

  11. At the Costco in Frederick, MD I saw Samantha, Bitty baby set, the horse set, a big craft kit, the mini dolls 6 book and book mark and stand set, the sticker book, and ultimate guide book. I was hoping to buy the gift card ( I want to get a couple of gift card packs), but i didn't see the gift cards.

  12. I hope this doesn't mean they're going to be retiring Samantha! She was just re-released not that long ago. Why not retire another doll like Kaya that has been out for a long time yet has a very limited collection and receives almost no recognition in the magazine?

    1. Shes Native American so her collection will be small due to historical accuracy. Samantha will probably be retired because Felcity is coming back out. Also look at it this way
      Marie Grace and Cecile 2011-2014
      Caroline 2012-2015
      Samantha 2014-2017

      newer dolls dont seem to last plus Addy may retire alongside Samantha..

  13. I forgot to add I also saw the pet sets (I didn't really look at them so I don't know which ones they have), and the sleepover set. I have a feeling that with Samantha at that price, she won't last long in store. I think if I wasn't planing on already getting Maryellen, I would get the Costco Samantha set.

  14. Costco has a new pet....the German Shepard!

  15. Federal Way, WA has Samantha. The Samantha I looked at I noticed her eyelashes seemed really short, so this morning I compared my current Sam, which I thought had softer lashes but they are at least longer and have good curl. Can barely see Sam's lashes in the picture I took at Costco to let friends know about the deal--would much rather see people who want her to get these sets than eBay resellers. My older Sam has lighter hair and better curls, too, so, I mostly want the outfits. I didn't like the new meet dress at first but the lace has grown on me. I have her classic Christmas dress, which this dress is similar too, but again--the lace.

    German shepherd pet seems to be pretty popular, as well as the kitten--which they didn't have last year. They have all the AG items at my Costco but no gift cards. Been watching like a hawk for them, but my location didn't get them last yeay--only back in my old town. -- Jen

  16. Anyone in New Jersey find it yet?? My brothers costco store has not get them yet :(

  17. The 7-digit number on the top of the price tag over the display is the item number. If you call or go to Costco's membership desk, give them the number 1053341 for the Samantha doll set. They can check to see if it's in stock at their store and if not a list of stores in the area to see if they have it. I live in Phoenix Arizona and that's how I tracked mine down. Ironically, the Costco in Scottsdale and the Costcos near Scottsdale didn't have this set, but there are three stores within the Phoenix area that do.

    One thing to note about this set is the 50% off coupon is only for Samantha's Meet accessories. Also, the Samantha doll in this set comes with the zip tie neck and no neck strings. As other people have posted, she isn't quite the same as the other Be Forever Samantha dolls. One thing I noticed is the Costco Samantha has darker eyes.

  18. Costco in Lodi, California has Samantha, the horse, Bitty Baby, pets and some craft kits. I was only interested in Samantha and the horse so I didn't pay much attention to the rest. I'm anxious to see if there is a coupon in the box....

  19. These are great! There is so much playability with a doll that comes with a few extra accessories or clothes. It makes for the perfect type of gift.

    I haven't seen any of these in the Canadian Costcos, but I will keep my eyes open just in case!
