The Olympics Is Postponed. Now What For AG?

Today, I was eating breakfast when my sister told me that the Olympics have been postponed. After I celebrated for a bit because that meant no anime delays*, something hit me.


American Girl was supposed to release their Olympic line this summer.

But they can't do that until next year now.


What will the summer release be now? Obviously, they'll have other things, but it will probably be smaller than usual since the Olympic collection is delayed. They'll probably release it in summer 2021, when the Olympics will most likely be held.


But will AG release other items to make up for it? The answer is probably no- the factories were closed for months because of the virus and they'd have to rush production of fall items. And besides, Courtney will be releasing in October and they'd want to release BeForever things at the same time.


What do you guys think AG's summer release will be now?


*-When Japan hosts sporting events, they always delay anime to show the sporting events. I can't even count how many times some rugby tournament delayed three different shows last year...

I think things are being taken too far. Yes, quarantine is necessary, but we shouldn't be calling of things as far away as July. I believe this virus will virtually disappear in April. AG should go ahead & release whatever they have to release whenever they're able to release it. Regardless of what those items are, however they will likely lose much business due to people missing work & even losing jobs. Hopefully though, the economy will bounce back & families will be resilient, & by fall we can all be ready to enjoy the new historical girl.

I think the dolls with prosthetics were probably designed before the new Truly me dolls, hence the missing numbers. And they couldn’t be released before the olympics stuff debut, so they had to release out of order

I really hope the summer release will still be awesome. At least I'll have the Olympics AG summer release to look forward to in summer 2021. Do you know what will release this summer? Maybe Courtney will even release earlier (that would be amazing)!

I thought that this year would be the year AG makes up all the money it has lost over the years with its Olympic stuff since most of the new stuff this year is Olympic themed. I'm so sad since, in AG's Instagram post where they gave a sneak peek of the summer stuff, they included a TM with a prosthetic leg! I really want to get her, but if the factories are empty, she'll probably be added to the Fall reveal, if the Fall reveal isn't ruined by the virus. Even if the Fall reveal isn't postponed, AG will probably want to focus on Courtney.
