Hi, everybody! I am a collector of AG accessories, but not the dolls, How I got into AG was, I have a large stuffed animal collection, and I wanted some kind of setup to pose them with. Maryellen's diner and Samantha's ice cream parlor are great setups! Then I got into the books.
So I'm wondering, why did Caroline have such a short run? A friend IRL said she was too similar to Felicity. Maybe in style of clothing, but look at all the cool stuff Caroline does! She's another wartime character, but she's not on the home front like Felicity, Addie and Molly; she's in the thick of it. She and her family were in serious danger, and she was incredibly brave, and not just in her "hero" book.
And what I especially love about Caroline is how she shows growth in the way BeForever characters are created. The series started out with Samantha grudgingly doing embroidery when she would rather have been outside with her frenemy, being unladylike. Twenty-five years and ten new characters later, Caroline finds a way to use her embroidery to help her father escape prison. Now that's lateral thinking! And it's an indication of truly free choice: a young woman should be as free to choose to do embroidery as she is free to choose not to.
Does anyone here have any inside info, or educated guesses, as to why Caroline disappeared? And for that matter, Cecile and Marie-Grace. I don't have as much admiration for them as Caroline, but I do think it's odd that they've disappeared so thoroughly. Like, my friend's 11 y/o has never heard of them.
