New American Girl Movie and Magazine

  Disclosure -  I received a product to review from the company. Opinions expressed in this post are strictly my own

My daughter went and got the mail for me yesterday, and she came in with the newest American Girl Catalog and the most exciting news.  American Girl is releasing a new movie this summer, and it's going to be on NBC July 13th!

About - Saige Copeland™, American Girl’s popular 2013 Girl of the Year, comes to life in a new feature-length movie from Universal Studios Home Entertainment, An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky. The movie, releasing on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 2 and airing Saturday, July 13, at 8/7C on NBC.

Nine-year old Saige is excited about the new school year until she discovers that art—her favorite class—has been cut. On top of that, her best friend, Tessa, is spending more and more time with another girl. For support, Saige turns to her grandma Mimi (Seymour), a well-known artist and horsewoman, who encourages her to take action and inspire her community in a fund-raising effort to start an after-school art program. Heartwarming, empowering, and fun, it’s a movie for every girl who has ever dreamed big.

My daughter was so excited about this.  She loves art and horses, and thinks Saige is just beautiful.  The only thing that would make it better, is if Saige also loved dolphins and reading, and looked like her.  (Sadly, none of their dolls do.)

She told me all about how it was on NBC, and was really concerned on if we have NBC or not. I assured her we did, and then we rushed down to record it on the DVR. 

Also new from American Girl is the July/August Edition of the Magazine.

This issue features fun summer projects, crafts, and stories.  It also has posters that can be torn out and used to decorate a room (including a dolphin picture Kik is in love with).

I'm always hesitant about magazine subscriptions because I don't know how long it will hold my daughters interest.  If you've thought about getting the American Girl Magazine, but don't want to buy a subscription, you can now order a single edition on the American Girl Webpage.

Opinions expressed in this post are strictly my own - I was not influenced in any way. I received no compensation for this post.  We just like American Girl.
