Limited Edition Nutcracker Collection! ~my thoughts~

Merry Christmas everybody!

Ha ha ha, just kidding! I know, it’s only September at the moment, but Christmas is just right around the corner, and American Girl has already started releasing some of their Christmas items!

Last year, when American Girl started their Nutcracker Collection, they released three different outfits:

Nutcracker Prince And Clara Outfit Set: $75

Nutcracker Snow Queen Outfit: $50

All of these outfits were limited edition items last Christmas and are no longer available.

Here are the three new outfits that AG just came out with for this collection:

Nutcracker Mouse King and Land of Sweets Outfit Set: $100

Ok, will somebody PLEASE tell me why American Girl decided to use a girl doll to model the Mouse King outfit instead of using one of their boy dolls like they did with the Prince?! I really like both of these outfits, and that Land of Sweets one is Sooooooo cute! I absolutely love the fluffy neck line! And that lollipop is so cute! The doll that they chose to model the outfit kinda looks a little like Tenny! The mouse ear headband for the mouse king is super cute! But this set cost $100! That’s like, $25 more than the Prince and Clara’s outfit set costed last year! But it is a limited addition set, so I guess that’s why it cost so much.

Nutcracker Sugar Plum Fairy Outfit: $65

I love all the purple in this outfit! And the little tiara is so cute! Those slippers look hard to put on though. I personally don’t really feel like this item is worth $60. Maybe more like $40? I still like this outfit a lot though!

All of these items are limited edition and will very likely sell out of all, or at least most of them before Christmas! So if you are interested in any of these items, better buy them before they sell out!
