A Helpful Guide to the American Girl Customized Gift Experience


The American Girl Customized Gift Experience launched today! There are many options, so I played around with the customizer for a little bit- as in, a few hours- and made this post to detail them all.

Warning: there will be nerdiness in this post! I had a lot of opportunities to pick out names, so I used ones from my other fandoms to make the process go faster.

The gifts come in 2 sizes:

The Gift Trunk is the bigger (and more expensive) option. Costing $265, it comes with:

• A choice of any 18 inch doll with outfit and book

• Choice of two 'play packs'

• A free trip to the Doll Hospital within one year

• A letter to the recipient

• A storage trunk

• The option to pierce the doll's ears, get hearing aids in, or both

• AG Rewards members get a $10 reward when purchasing

• Free shipping

The Starter Set comes with less, but is a way to do the experience without breaking the bank. Costing $160, it comes with:

• A choice of any 18 inch doll with outfit and book

• Choice of two 'play packs'

• A letter to the recipient

• The option to pierce the doll's ears, get hearing aids in, or both

• AG Rewards members get a $5 reward when purchasing

• Free shipping

When you start the experience, it asks you these things:

-The recipient's name (I put 'Marinette')

-The purchaser's name (I put 'Adrien')

-Occasion (you can choose from congratulations, get well, happy birthday, happy holidays, so proud of you, or you're the best)

-What the recipient is like (adventurous, caring, confident, creative, loyal, curious and festive, you can pick 3)

-What you wish for the recipient (an adventurous spirit, caring heart, confident attitude, creative nature, curious mind, lifelong friendships and a loving family, you can pick 3)

It then gives you a choice of 2 character dolls and the option to pick a Truly Me, or you can hit 'View All' and pick any character doll. When you pick one (I hit 'Blaire'), it asks you these questions:

-Trunk or starter set (I hit 'Trunk')

-What play pack (or 2) would be good (there were only 2 options, so I clicked the ones that were available)

-If you want ear piercing or hearing aids

-Review your letter. This is a sample letter:

"You're the best, Marinette!

You're amazing. Every day, in so many ways, you show others that you are caring, creative, and loyal. Just by being yourself, you inspire those around you to become better people.

As you look ahead, remember it's up to you to take advantage of every adventure. Because what you learn from life's twists and turns will not only change you, it'll help you change the world.

Love,

Adrien"

I totally approved that! (And the Miraculous fans all screamed.)

Now, we're all done!

But wait! I'm going to show you guys all the different play packs you can choose from so you know what's going on with that- plus, you'll find out about the story starters as well.
