As I suspected, there were no more Isabelle dolls on the shelves anywhere. But surprisingly, there was a reasonable number of outfits available, and for the savvy shopper--all on sale.
On the left side of the back wall display was plenty of the Metallic Dress, so the exchange went smoothly.
And on the right side of the back wall was plenty of the Sparkle Dress.
But no Isabelle dolls! Normally, the bottom shelf was full.
And no Isabelle dolls under the dvd display.
And around the corner where Isabelle's Studio used to be displayed, there are no Isabelle dolls on the top shelf anymore.
However, quite a few of Isabelle's items were still on the shelves, including
The girl sized clothing and accessories were down to just a few handfuls in random sizes--and I saw quite a few moms with the girl sized clothing in their hands waiting to check out.
There were also only a handful of the girl sized Jewelry Box left, perhaps less than ten. The dwindling supply of all the Isabelle goods is just a reminder of the excitement just around the corner.
I plan to be in line at 10am on January 1st! Will you be going to your local American Girl Store on the 1st?
