Mark your calendars, AGDN readers all over the world! Melody's Amazon Prime special has a trailer- and a release date! The special will come out on October 21, 2016- in 21 days! THE TRAILER IS AWESOME! I'd talk more about one scene in the trailer that touched me, but I can't because it would be a spoiler. The trailer link is https://www.accesshollywood.com/videos/melody-1963-love-has-to-win-an-american-girl-story-first-look/, so click on that to watch it and come back over here to find out what scene touched me.
The scene that touched me is when Melody was looking at all of the white dolls and feeling ashamed that there was no dolls that looked like her. I'm proud of AG for including this scene because with the release of Melody, they really made a difference. Black and white girls (including me!) love our Melody dolls! Now Sydney's Special Dolls will just have to make the disabled dolls!
Speaking of that, me and my dad are making a prototype doll of Elliana (I changed Emma's name to Elliana and I also changed her story just a bit) today! I'm so HAPPY to see what Elliana will look like with all of my dollies!
AMERICAN GIRL TRIVIA: The reason why Addy wasn't a part of the Original 3 was because Pleasant Rowland wanted to wait until AG was known about with black families to make a black doll.
COMMENT DISCUSSION QUESTION: Should I post a picture of Elliana once the prototype's done?
