Tenney Grant, American Girl doll for February 2017!

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!

Tenney is very pretty! I love her hair and face. However, I have put a temporary hold on buying any new AG dolls since I already have 14 in my collection. And that's not counting all the OTHER 18" dolls from other manufacturers residing in my doll room! So, yeah. I must resist. But I'm happy to see you got one! Logan doesn't do anything for me, either--he just looks like a Bitty Twin head on an AG body. Now, if they had made a new face sculpt for him, I might have been more tempted. The new hand molds are interesting, though...does this mean they can hold things more easily? I wonder if AG will be making all their future dolls with this feature?

Thanks, Angela, for dropping by! I have Tenney right beside me at the computer. She is such a pretty doll. I also love musical instruments although I can't play any stringed ones. Hubby can, and I love his guitar playing. I'll have to get Tenney's blue guitar soon. I haven't tried her hands holding other things, as she is still clutching her banjo!
