So I spent most of last night looking up stuff on American Girl dolls. YOU KNOW THE DOLLS. They kicked so much ass, except that now they're lame because Mattel bought them and fucked everything up?

Yep.

I made the mistake of going onto the official site, just to see how much a Felicity doll runs, because I've been thinking about how much I miss my old Felicity doll and would like to have one just to cuddle and pat and go, "Aww, you're awesome".

I spent the rest of the evening in a bizarre funk over the fact that the historical dolls have taken a back seat to the Girl of Today dolls, which are now the main focus. And how practically ALL of Felicity's awesome accessories and original dress have been retired.

THIS SADDENS ME. I knew it was the case, I never should have gotten on the main site, it depresses me so much. But I did find this awesome site that shows all of the retired items.

I kind of want an old catalog to flip through, like the old days, so I could pore over all the cool accessories and wish I had billions of dollars to buy them all. I think one time I actually went through the whole catalog and figured up how much it would cost to get all of the dolls and all of their accessories. That was back when there were only four, and I didn't count the Bitty Baby collection, I always thought that was weird and pointless.

Anyway, the point is, I'm still thinking of saving up and getting a Felicity doll, only purchasing an old, pre-Mattel one off of Ebay with the original dress and stuff. I think it would make my heart happy.
