American Girl Saige Copeland Doll of the Year 2013

 

We are thrilled to share up close photos and video of American Girl’s latest Doll of the Year 2013, Saige Copeland from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Saige likes to hang out at her grandma Mimi’s ranch where she loves to both paint in her studio or ride Picasso her horse.

American Girl Doll of the Year 2013 Saige will be available on sale starting January 1st, 2013 in stores and online. I can’t wait to see more details on accessories and pricing, but for now here is the scoop with lots of photos and video of this new doll and the background on her story.

My daughter Kenzie and I have been adoring Saige for the past few days and we think you will love her as much as we do. Her freckles are charming and her dress is modern and hip while at the same time you see it is  inspired by the American Southwest.  Saige arrives with her long curly hair in a side braid and she is wearing tall boots and a cute dress. We instantly fell in love with the doll – but as always part of our infatuation is with the story behind the doll as Kenzie and I read the books together. Kenzie loves learning about each American Girl and we really enjoy discussing her story together. Every American Girl is so special with their own unique talents along with the special nuances that come with whatever time period or geographic location each girl is from.

The Saige doll arrives complete with her ears pierced with silver earrings. Aren’t they sweet? Talk about a WOW factor for my daughter!

Here’s a close up photo of the beautiful turquoise ring that fits Saige and comes included with the brand new doll. The ring was a real hit and is going to excite a ton of little girls. Isn’t it lovely?

Note: My mom advice is that I caution everyone to remember that like any piece of jewelry it can easily fall off so be sure to be careful if Saige is wearing her ring when you are taking your doll out and about on adventures beyond your own home. We noticed it slipping off at times when Kenzie was playing with Saige at home so we plan to have Saige only wear the ring in the house so we don’t lose this fun piece.

Here’s the inside scoop on Saige’s story and background below along with a video review of American Girl Saige to share with everyone all the features of this new doll.

Quick scoop on the features of American Girl Saige Copeland – Doll of the Year 2013.

  • - Freckles, bright blue eyes, and strawberry brown hair
  • - Her hair is in a side braid. (Instructions for caring for the dolls hair note that it is long curly hair. )
  • -She is wearing tall boots and a cute cotton blue dress with a Southwest inspired weave print around the waistline.
  • -Her ears are pierced and she comes complete with silver earrings
  • - She also comes with a turquoise blue ring

Her dad is also a big fan of hot air ballooning so we can look forward to some sweet accessories in the form of both this hot air balloon and Saige’s horse.

I also saw press materials about an easel accessory along with an assortment of super cute outfits – various boots, sandals, dresses, and cowgirl inspired fashions. Aren’t these new dolls of the year from American Girl so exciting?

With Saige as the American Girl Doll of the Year 2013 we can also expect to see lots of exciting initiatives from American Girl to support Saige’s message of preserving Arts programs in U.S.  schools.

Also, a new movie based on Saige will be released later in 2013 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Hooray!

Another view of Saige’s earrings – again these arrive already pierced with her wearing earrings. I presume more cool earrings will be for sale which will be a fun accessory to buy for Saige.
