I have some exciting pictures and news to share with you all! This morning, Peyton and I, attended a private event for Berry Members only. At this event, we had the opportunity to see Blaire Wilson and her complete line!
Blaire Wilson is my favorite girl of the year so far since we started collecting in 2015. Blaire has agriculture roots and I think that is what I love most about her. Being from the Midwest, where farming is everywhere (we literally live across the street from a farm and drive past a dairy farm on the way to school every morning) I love being able to bring home a girl that celebrates this life.
Blaire is being sold as the everyday girl that tries to make meaningful connections with others. While I like this message, I think all the girls in the American Girl brand strive for that goal. But what is unique about Blaire is her farm lifestyle. The animals available in her collection are farm animals! And she has a pet chinchilla, which I didn’t see out today so I’m sure there may be more pieces to come.
Today we were able to see her family farm restaurant. The details that went into creating the restaurant are amazing. From hanging party lights to the intricate details in the food to the complete kitchen that comes attached. This is on Peyton’s wish list. I will warn you, this is the most expensive piece in the line, coming in at $300. But I have a feeling, despite the price tag, this will not be around long. I expect it will sell out fairly quickly. I saw a few mothers picking these up this morning.
There are a few different outfits available for Blaire. Her bridesmaid dress was Peyton’s favorite and took this home with us today. The lace detail on this dress is adorable.
There is also a gardening outfit complete with overalls available too! ($32) To go along with the gardening outfit are some gardening accessories ($20) which include a hat and apron to keep her clean while she digs in the dirt. There is even a garden ($50) available that comes with a swan and her own little garden. Today we brought home one of Blaire’s animals, the piglet!! ($20) He’s super cute! There is also a lamb ($25) available too. Since I see talk about picking up eggs in the garden ads I’m wondering if there may not be a chicken in the near future for our new friend, Blaire.
It was a blast having a first look at Blaire this morning. We just love spending time at our local American Girl store at the Mall of America.
