Another AG Mini..

Portrait of AG Mini doll Julie

Yes, yes, I know, another one of these delightful little dolls added to my collection. They’re just the perfect wee treat after a long week so I ordered Julie from amazon and she’s been watching over me from my bedside table since.

Full review of the boxing, book etc of these dolls is to be found in the original post about American Girl mini dolls, with Marie Grace and photos of her friend Cecily are in this post.

So, Julie.

Julie is a 20th century doll, she hails from the 1970s and is dressed appropriately for 1974, in a crinkle-gauze peasant blouse over a multicolored turtleneck, worn over “groovy” two tone bell bottem jeans with a braided belt, and platform sandals. Yes, the AG site says “groovy”, though I was never a fan of bell bottoms then and now, but she does look pretty cool. Her hair is gorgeously shiny, long flowing blonde hair with a long braid. As with the other dolls in the series she’s a perfect mini replica of her larger counterpart.

Her story sets her in 1970s San Francisco, and must have proved a good source of inspiration because as well as the mini story book that accompanies all mini AG dolls, the company has a series of six books featuring Julie and her friend Ivy. Its a bit disturbing to think of a doll from the 1970s as “historical” (I was born in 1972) but great to see how varied the American Girl range can be, and I’m very pleased with my mini version.

Helene rather likes her also:
