My daughter loves her Caroline American Girl doll and when she had the chance to add a friend she just about flipped! Caroline's new friend is Saige and she is the 2013 girl of the year and she's absolutely stunning. Saige is a little girl who loves horses and art and that is something my daughter connected to, she loves to be artistic and loves drawing she loves the fact her doll has the same like she does.
Saige is a very pretty doll the sculpt of her face is beautiful and her little freckles are adorable. Her hair is a very pretty shade of auburn and her eyes.....wow!
I wish my eyes were this vibrant! Her eyes are a very stunning shade of turquoise that resemble the color of the ocean in the tropics. Her tiered skirt is a pretty indigo color and it has southwest inspired beading on it that is bright and it pops against the dress giving it a nice contrast. Saige comes with leather like riding boots that are knee high and have an interesting wrap design on them and they really work with her dress.
Her ears are pierced (another thing my daughter loves about Saige) and since she's an arty kinda gal she has a little artsy type of turquoise ring that really compliments her eyes. Unlike any other doll I have ever seen before Saige comes with a beautiful ring as well. A little “turquoise” ring. The ring fits nicely on her first finger, just be careful if the doll is bumped the ring may fall off. If you are traveling with the doll, I would suggest leaving the ring at home just in case you would not want this to get lost.
If you'd like to send Saige on adventures no worries she has got some really neat accessories that you can add including her horse Picasso, a hot air balloon (wish I grew up in her family), a border collie named Rembrandt (noticing her love of the arts yet?) and if that isn't enough you can purchase her art set including an easel, paint brushes and palette, paint tubes and 5 paintings on real canvas. The level of detail in these dolls is simply amazing. I'm blown away and wishing I was 8 years old again.
And one other thing I love about the American Girl dolls is the ease of how the dolls come out of the box. Christmas was a little over a week ago and my daughter received several toys from Santa and almost all of them took several minutes to get out of the package. It's ridiculous how long it took us to get things unboxed. American Girl dolls can be unboxed by anyone, they're so easy to get out of their boxes that all toy manufactures should take a page out of their books. Very well done plain and simple.
