On Saturday, February 18, 2017 I visited the American Girl doll boutique on Granville St in Vancouver BC. I had just had my back adjusted a few blocks away, so after a cup of coffee to revive me, Robert brought me to the store. I had received an email letting me know about a special function happening with the chance of winning a raffle draw for one of three Tenney Grant dolls! Who could pass that up. I didn't actually know about the raffle until I got to the store. The draw was done at noon. No, I didn't win!
I did purchase Tenney, the new doll released a few days ago. I'm not sure why AG did this so soon after the DOTY, Gabriella, who was stuck way off in a corner and you could hardly see her. I used Robert's Christmas gift card for Tenney. I'm glad I saved it. Tenney really struck me. I just love her hair and her brown eyes and her cute freckles. Plus she has a different hand mold in order to hold her banjo, which I also bought, and her guitar.
The first boy doll was also released; Logan Everett.
Both Tenney and Logan are part of a musical band.
Logan has a drum set. Well, he sure didn't speak to me, so he was left on the shelf. The dolls are $149 Cdn plus tax, so I need pretty shoes and a pretty dress for that amount of money! He also looks very solemn.
There were quite a few young girls milling around later.
When I got there at 10:30 the store was empty. I had to wait until noon to see if I had won. Robert went off to do other things for a while. I browsed to my heart's content!
I need to add a photo of my Tenney in her concert outfit which I also bought. Plus each person was given a Tenney
T-shirt for their doll as a give-a-way gift. It was a lot of fun!
