American Girl Camp Day 1: How To Write An Awesome AG Doll Commercial!


Today was the first day of the American Girl camp I help out at every year! I had so much fun like usual, and even though there was only 2 girls, I had a great time and they were so nice! I can't wait for tomorrow!

I decided that I'd post what we do each day on here this year so you guys can have fun like me at home! I will be at camp all week this week, as well as Monday through Thursday next week at another location and another week in July if I can get a ride, so you'll get a lot of cool tips!

Today, the girls wrote commercials for the American Girl store. A commercial is always something we do every year, and it's either for their specific dolls or AG in general. If you wanted to write your own commercial, here's how!

First, to get inspiration, you can watch some real AG commercials. I showed the girls one before they wrote their own, but I'll link a couple here!

(You can also listen to AG music while writing- I played songs from the Girl of the Year movies, the AG Revue and Tenney all day today!)

2. Make a list about your favorite things about the doll you're writing about. For example, if I was writing a commercial about Blaire, this would be my list:

-Blaire has a lot of cute animals in her collection

-Her story deals with a lactose intolerance, something that is usually ignored in dolls

-She has pretty red hair which is fun to play with

-You can dress her up in a lot of different ways

3. Write all those things down in complete sentences. For example: Blaire has a lot of cute animals in her collection. In her story, she has to face a lactose intolerance, which is something that isn't usually represented in dolls. The doll has pretty red hair which is fun to style, and she can be dressed up in many different ways.

4. Add some facts about the doll that will complement your opinions and what you like about her, as well as adding some personal stuff to add a unique touch. You can make a list of those:

-Blaire is the 2019 Girl of the Year

-She has a chicken, a pig and a lamb

-I have a dairy allergy like Blaire

-Red hair is very unique in American Girl dolls- the last true redhead was #61

-I like to make Blaire cosplay a lot

Then, incorporate them into your commercial!

Blaire Wilson is the 2019 Girl of the Year. She has a lot of cute animals in her collection, including a chicken, a pig and a lamb. In her story, she has to face a lactose intolerance, which is something that isn't usually represented in dolls, and lots of kids have to face it, including myself. The doll has pretty red hair which is fun to style. Red haired American Girl dolls aren't common- the last one was Truly Me 61. Blaire can also be dressed up in many different ways- from her signature farm looks to a runway model to even a Japanese magical girl!

5. Finishing touches! Why would you have a commercial if you didn't know where the doll was going to be sold? Add that.

And now, here's the final product!
