GOTY 2013, Saige!

Have you guys heard much about the GOTY 2013 yet? Apparently, she is Hispanic, like Josefina! I must say, I am very excited to see her. American girl has only had 2 girl of the year dolls with darker complexions so far (Marisol and Kanani) and I think they were both beautiful. I can't wait to see what AG has in store for this one!
A summary of her stories (using information we have collected so far):
Saige is a fourth-grader growing up in New Mexico. She loves painting and riding horses. When she finds out that her school lacks funding for an art program, she is devestated. Saige decides to make a change and raise money for her school.
Many other websites have posted about Saige too! My favorite website for doll detectives is dolldiaries.com. Check it often for the latest updates on Saige, cool doll photos, crafts, blogs and more!

I think Saige sounds really cool, so I decided to edit my own photo of what I think she will look like. I gave her medium skin, dark eyes, dark hair with bangs (very few GOTY's have had bangs, aside from lindsey and lanie. I think with Saige they should give her bangs, it makes her look so sweet!)


What does your prediction look like? Be sure to comment below and share your thoughts! :)

  2. Where did the name basilmentos come from? Oh and I love your stopmotions. Me and my dad tried to make one and it turned out horrible. I'm amazed by the amount of effort you put into your stop motions!

  3. This is SO cool! I am so glad she is hispanic, because me and mom are half hispanic, and we wanted her to look EXACTLY of what you think of her! She is so pretty!

  6. I hope this is what she looks like. I read your doll wish list (most recent one) and I realised I wanted the same doll as you, But she had retired :( Anyway This looks a bit like her. The name saige is gorgeous and I love her fringe!!! I was kinda' hoping for next years GOTY to be a girl who moves to a new school and finds out that the soccer team was only for boys, so she has to stand up o the boys and their couch!

  9. I personally wish that she wasn't Hispanic. I was kind of hoping for 2013 goty to look like me (Longish brown hair, brown eyes, no bangs, and light skin) because there isn't a doll like that and I've been waiting forever with one that actually looks like me. Oh well. That is my opinion :)

  10. I hope she has a different color eyes :) Maybe green :) this on is the exact same as JLY #2. I just hope they never make a doll with blond hair and blue eyes ever again! I'm so sick of that. Caroline, Elizabeth, McKenna, Marie-Grace, about 5 JLY dolls. . .ugghh!!!

  11. Hmm...This is pretty similar to how we envision her! I would LOVE to see a doll with different bangs, maybe a totally new hairstyle!

    We are trying to reach 100 followers on our blog and we need YOUR help! We only need 10 more and we'd LOVE it if you would be one of them! Please come check it out, can't wait to see you there!

  15. i was hoping the goty would be asian. there has already been a hispanic goty (marisol) and jess wasn't full asian, so i was hoping... well. idk. i don't rly like the ags with bangs, so i guess i hope she doesn't look like this. also, ag hasn't had an african american goty yet. i think that maybe they should do that. I hope she is asian or a redhead (though redhead's unlikely, nicki, mia) with hair like lanie's without the side bangs, with grey or green eyes. and maybe freckles, because i just love the ags with freckles ^^

  16. I can't wait so see what she will look like.
    I probably won't be getting her though because I already have Marisol but I'm glad AG is doing something different from the normal brown/blonde hair, blue/brown eyes with lighter skin. Next year I hope AG has an African-American doll for the goty.

  21. There still hasn't been ANY type of doll from the Arab/Afghani/Pakistani/etc race doll in the history of AmericanGirl Dolls. I am a proud American-Pakistani and I really hope they make a doll from my area!!! :D

  23. WOW! Anna that is really good. I now think you r right! I won't take credit or anything just saying you might be right. I hope she turns out that way!

  24. Pretty original idea AG! But I really want AG to make an Irish-American immigrant doll from the 1840 potato famine! Comment if u agree that she'd make an awesome 2014 doll! They could call her Maeve (may-eev) O' Reily (spelled right?!) Sorry for my random idea! Totally cool that you edited her face in the pic!! :D

  25. wow... she looks a lot like Dora The Explorer...

  26. Doll Diaries posted a picture of her, or at least, her book cover. It doesn't look like she'll look like that. It seems that she'll have light skin and red/brown hair. The image is blurry, so I really can't tell.

  30. I love the real Saige, but I'm even MORE in love with this version! I only have two dolls with bangs, Bailey(JLY #19) and Lanie(GOTY 2010).

  31. Honestly, they think people want a Mexican doll so they make one with red hair blue eyes and freckles!But never the less, Saige is a beautiful doll(I actually have her)

The story behind it all....

In September of 2009, a pre-teen girl named Anna was searching youtube. She no longer used her american girl dolls. they were behind the closet doors, gathering dust. She reluctantly glanced over, then began to type in the search bar: American Girl Dolls. A video came up. She clicked on it. 14 coustumed dolls slid onto the screen and began to dance together, waving their arms and doing cartwheels. Anna was shocked. How could this be possible? This was.... Amazing. She quickly searched a few more. There were hudreds of videos, by usernames like stephenswodadancer, AGlovejess and girloftheyearstudios. Anna couldn't believe it. This new discovery was incredible! She ran to her room and pulled out her two dolls, felicity and samantha. She grabbed her camera. And, she began to film.


It is now four years later. I work on videos almost everyday, usually stopmotions. I have gathered quite a few veiws and subscribers on youtube, and I really appriciate when people comment on my videos. I have come unbelievibly far, but I still leave up those first videos from two years ago, because for me, those are the memories that I will always treasure. I am so happy that I can share them with you.
