What I Think Of Isabelle Palmer!!!

Hey! So today I thought I'd do a post on Isabelle's collection! I have a fun surprise for you if you read to the end, too! All photos belong to American Girl. All thoughts belong to me. The post series WITO (What I Think Of) idea belongs to me. Please do not take it. Any form of copying this post series will make me sad :(

Here is the lovely Isabelle! I really like her! However, I don't like her shoes (they're OK, but they just don't scream to me), or the fact that her hair piece is apparently hard to put in. I do like her hair piece, but I don't think it should make the price an extra $10! I mean, seriously AG, you're basically just making a normal doll, only you're ripping part of her hair out and dying it a different color. And attach mini hook things. How much extra does that really cost you? $1? I am happy that she has hazel eyes though, as I LOVE hazel eyes!

These are nice, but definitely not worth $30! It's just a couple piece of cardboard, a dollar store hair clip, a plain black jacket with her name on it, a small, sparkly gold purse, and some fingerless gloves that you could make on your own! Cute, and fun to play with, but not worth $30!

This ballet case just makes me mad every time I see it! AG is charging a whopping $44 for a dance case, a few hair accessories, stickers, and ballet slippers? CRAZY! I think it was also extremely unfair for AG to only put ballet shoes in this, her dance barre set, and her performance outfit! You have to spend roughly either $38, $44, or $65 to get a pair of ballet slippers! It's absolutely horrible! And this case would be so simple to make! All you need to do is take a small, round purse, glue a few dance pictures on it, make a few headbands, buy some dollar store hair accessories, make a doll-sized sock bun donut from a toddler sock (it would make just as nice a bun as that bun maker tool), and get some cheap doll ballet slippers from a place like Springfield!

This studio is amazing! I love the mini sewing machine and all the accessories! I think it is overpriced, but it would be worth it if you were obsessed with sewing! However, I'm sure you could make your own!

This barre is cute, but you could make your own so easily! I do like the water bottle and ballet shoes though!

This is nice, but I think it has too many pieces!!! That strange cuff could go, and the flower on her unitard could go as well, and I think her skirt should look more like a tutu. Also her ballet slippers should be black instead of gray.

This is really pretty, but I think that the leggings should be coral, and the shoes white/cream. I still really like it like this, though!

This does not look like pajamas! The shirt would be uncomfortable with all of those sequins, and the pants are a little strange looking, but I am so happy that they didn't use sandals for slippers! It's such a nice change! I was kind of hoping for something like bunny slippers though! :)

Tutu is cute, but I want something like a owl, pig, or a mouse! I wish they would stop it with constant dogs and cats! Tutu also looks slightly like a Barbie cat too!

Here is one of her mix and match combinations. I think that this has a few too many pieces, but it's OK.

NOOOOOO! Not coral legwarmers with pink tights! LOL, I can't stand the legwarmers in this outfit, but I like the rest of it!

This is absolutely adorable!!! This is my favorite combination!! I have no complaints about it!

Um...no! Too many different kinds of pink! Make it stop!!!

NO. Just NO. That practice top is so ugly!

This is really cute! It's my second favorite! I think Izzy looks really adorable in this!

Something about this makes her look kind of fat...or is it just me? I don't really like this one.

These colors clash too much! It's like the leggings are eating the leotard with their bright color!

That bow is slightly strange, but I am interested in finding out if it's removable! It is a cute color though.

LOVE THIS! Who doesn't? It's just SOOOOOOOOO cute!!!!

I think it was smart of AG to give Isabelle a set like this. I would buy this! It's really cute! I'm really glad that Isabelle's collection has a mix of colors like coral, purple, and different shades of pink!

This is cute, but I'm not a big fan of the pattern that the gold ribbon is in.

Love this! I'm thinking of buying it!!!

Meh, this is OK, but I think it's a little plain.

So purple and sparkly...so ME! I adore this! I generally love purple sparkly things, but this is extra cute!

This is nice! I'm glad they gave Izzy one of these! I love these. :)

YES!!! I love these!!! So awesome!!! I would buy these!

So cute! I'm glad AG made an extra tutu, so you don't have to buy the performance set to get one. Now if they could only do the same thing with ballet slippers...

Ugh, this is horrendous...just NO!

I had a lot of fun doing this WITO, and I am happy to give Isabelle an...A-! She gets a minus because some of her clothes were a little strange (like the practice top, above), and also the whole ballet shoe thing, but Izzy is just so pretty that she makes up for it! So now for the surprise.................................................................I'm getting Isabelle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to the AG Canada store when it opens in the spring and getting her!!!!!!! I'm also going to get her ears pierced at the salon there! And get a couple of items from her collection, and her other books. Any suggestions of what to get? Just so you know, I am definitely not going over $200! I currently have $72 saved up, and the people across the street went on vacation and hired me to shovel snow for them and collect their mail, so that will be paying for most of it, and I've got some Christmas money left. I'm so excited! :D

  1. Lol, You really don't like that crop top thing huh? Cute review BTW :)

  2. Okay, so I am going CRAZY with excitement for you!!!!!!!!! It was a great review. You're so lucky that a store is opening in Canada. I wish they would open one in Australia, but that is highly unlikely to happen, unfortunately :(
    I'm saving up for a doll as well. I was going to get MYAG 56, then Izzy, and a heap of others, but now I think I'll be getting Rebecca. I don't know for sure yet though. I'm going to try and get a cheap doll of eBay that I like, and who isn't too damaged. Hopefully I can find a Rebecca doll. I found one once who went for around 80 dollars. She came with her box, and I think she was only missing a couple of things like her underwear and stockings! I would've bought her, but didn't have enough money at the time, so hopefully I'll see another one soon. Good luck with your saving up! I only have $22.60 at the moment, unfortunately. I did have just over 50, but I spent most of it on Christmas presents as I didn't have enough time to make them, and the rest went to other things that I need/wanted. I wish I'd saved it, but unfortunately that wasn't really an option at the time...

    1. I know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been waiting for a store since I was 5!!!!!!!!!!! It's pretty much my dream come true to go to an AG store, get a doll, get her ears pierced, and buy some clothes and accessories!!!!!!! I'm sure that someday they'll expand into Australia! Rebecca is beautiful! I hope you can get a super cheap yet still super pretty and in good condition doll!!!!

    2. Awwww thanks!! I hope you can get Izzy really, really soon!

  3. I love Isabelle! By the way, the bow isn't removable. Hope that helps;)

    1. Aw! I wish it was. Thanks, it did help!!!

  4. Great! I pretty much agree with everything you wrote here. :) I am saving up for her, too (as you probably know). ;)

  5. I give Isabelle an B+. Not my fav... Great review! So happy for you on Isabelle!
