Welcome Saige, American Girl of the year 2013!!
Saige Copeland & ChiIL Mama's Sage--both creative, artistic, 9 year old American Girls!
We had a blast at American Girl Place in Chicago yesterday on 1-1-13, for Saige's debut party. Check out our original shots here then head on down yourself. Free doll sized Saige tee's, posters, and crafts are going on 9am-1pm daily through January 4th!!
It was fun for ChiIL Mama's daughter, Sage, to be there on launch day. We've NEVER heard her name so many times in one place! All over the store we heard a chorus of excited girls saying:
Saige is so beautiful.
I've been waiting my whole life for a doll like Saige.
I can't wait to get Saige.
Saige is so cool.
Saige is my favorite girl.
Saige has awesome hair.
I love Saige.
We had fun following creative clues and acing the Saige Scavenger Hunt to win a poster.
We also picked up our free doll sized Saige tee and made a hot air balloon craft.
We couldn't resist picking up her adorable dog (He's big, shaggy, black and white...and not unlike my Sage's dog!) and we were happy to see he's a soft body (unlike earlier AG pets) and comes with a leash.
We also bought the super cool art set, which my Sage is paying for herself out of her "helpful works" money.
I also couldn't resist the gorgeous sweater dress, accented with a southwestern flair belt. It's a beautiful blue/purple like the color of flowers on Sage plants like May Night Sage and others in the Salvia family. It's soft, 100% cotton and doesn't have scratchy seams--all big bonus points in our book! Saige's accessories and outfits are cool, colorful and artsy.
My Sage is now determined to save up and earn extra money so she can buy Saige's hot air balloon later this year. It's pretty impressive and would look great hanging in her room.
Check back with ChiIL Mama often for more photo features, our author interview and the latest news on Saige related events!
