American Girl Truly Me #59
Hi gang, sometime last year, I was able to purchase my 6th American Girl doll and I don't think I've ever really posted photos of her yet. Back when they used to do those wonderful (yet totally annoying in terms of AG website crashes) Jill's Steals and Deals sales, I was able to get this lovely gal for a really nice discounted price.
She is a #59 Truly Me doll with brown layered hair, brown eyes, light skin and a Classic face mold.
She was on my AG wishlist for a while, but not one that I necessarily had been eager to immediately get as I figured she'd probably be around for a while.
Once she arrived, I feel in love with her adorable face! I always thought I preferred the Josefina face mold, but there is something about the Classic mold and brown eyes that is really cute to me.
Her hair is beautiful with many different strands of brown giving it a very pleasing appearance. It's also completely straight so my daughters are able to enjoy her and I'm not really worried about her getting too messed up. :P
The new meet outfits are fairly plain, but cute, none-the-less. Just seeing these daisies in the photo makes me think you could really make it adorable by adding a few accessories or a nice flower crown. I love the boots.
The nice thing about her is that she's a low-maintenance AG doll in terms of giving her to a child. I can't see how her hair can get too ratty as it's so silky straight and easily detangles with a brush. I guess, perhaps, the strands may break with really rough play, but so far, out of all the AGs that I own, her hair is the most forgiving.
I knew a "Greta" in college that had brown hair, brown eyes and was sweet as pie so that is who I named her after. :)
So far, Greta is our "botanist" and loves the outdoors. She loves to take walks outside and learn about different plants and their healing properties. I think she may grow up to become an acupuncturist and provide education regarding herbal remedies. :}
Overall, I did not expect to love this doll as much as I do. I was fooled into thinking she was a bit plain, but now that she's here and we've been playing with her and creating a personality for her, she's a total delight.
Do you guys have any dolls you've ever gotten that you unexpectedly ended up falling in love with?
I hope you all are enjoying the start to the holiday season that's quickly approaching!
I have a few giveaways coming up, so stay tuned! :)
