Maryellen Larkin

I know I just shared a post about Maryellen but folks I am excited! She's such a pretty doll and one of my favorite eras! She comes out tomorrow but apparently the new American Girl Scottsdale Arizona store got her a day early and SOLD OUT! I know someone else who got a hold on one... Doll Diaries  and yes they are sponsoring a give away of the doll!

I don't have personal permission to share her pictures here so you will have to follow the link to Doll Diaries to see her beauty or go to the American Girl page tomorrow. Maryellen is a 1950's girl from sunny Florida. She's got strawberry blonde hair and a beautiful hazel eye color... Have I mentioned I love red heads in any form? I have already seen pictures of a sock hop dress, her dog, a DINER! a cute little capri set and an ice skating outfit. Her meet is so sweet and cute though.. Its got a beautiful striped sundress in pastel colors with a little shrug with an M on it in the true Laverne and Shirley style. (ohmy!)  I don't want to date myself or anything but I would hope most people know of that show from way back when! Her hair is swept up with strawberry blonde streaks of varied color and bright hazel eyes... I can't wait to have her of my very own!

Are you excited? Or are you Yay another Historical... boo bring on the 2016 Girl of the Year!
Whelp I am excited... Head over to Doll Diaries and enter.. What would you like from Maryellen's collection? Are you planning on adding the doll to your home? I am not keen on the name Maryellen and I don't know what to nickname her! eeek!

Maryellen Sneak Peaks

Maryellen sneak peeks before her August 27th release
I am very excited for the release of Maryellen. I don't think she will be part of our family right away but she will be sooner rather than later. I usually can only afford the dolls that are retiring as I want to make sure I have them before they retire. I invested recently in a McKenna hoping to flip her or fix her up but she's not budging and its dragging me down so I was hoping I could get a Grace or Maryellen with the money instead I feel its wasted at least for now :/

It was originally rumored the story line of Maryellen revolves around the Amelia Earhart era so if this is true she will be a soon added doll to her collection. Plus her honey/strawberry blonde hair and pretty eyes oh and yes the 50's had a great decade for style am I right?

The book 1 synopsis says (on Amazon):
Maryellen Larkin is nine years old and longs to stand out, but in a family with five brothers and sisters it's easy to get lost in the shuffle! A painting mishap gains her some attention, but not the kind she's been longing for. Being invited to stay in at recess and practice her handwriting earns Maryellen a new friend, but what does that mean for her old friendships? Then, Maryellen is wishing for a white Christmas like the ones in the movies (not very likely in Florida!) Will she find a way to make her dream come true?

Here is a link to Lissie and Lily's sneak peek:

What do you think? Will Maryellen be part of your home?
