Writing To AG; AG's Reply to My Letter

Hello! Today I was sorting through the mail when a burgundy star caught my eye; a letter from American Girl! As you know, a few months ago, I said I was going to write AG and request a homeschooled doll. I finally got around to it, and today AG's reply came! While I do not have a copy of my original letter, here is what they sent me;

Dear Natalie,

Thank you for writing to American Girl. We love hearing from our fans, especially when their letters are as eloquent, polite, and well-written as yours.

We think your idea for an American Girl character who is homeschooled is a great idea. We agree-homeschooled kids definitely deserve to be represented, and we appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention. Unfortunately, we are unable to take specific product requests for legal reasons, but we want you to know how much we value your feedback. Hearing from the very girls we serve helps us know what your likes and interests are, and how we might improve our products and services.

Though we can't promise if, or when, we might introduce a character who is homeschooled, we will be sure to share your idea with our Product Development Team. Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts with us!

Best Wishes,

Alicia Granger
Customer Service Correspondent

P.S. We hope you keep on blogging-you are a very gifted writer. Homeschooling definitely seems to be working for you! 

Thank you, American Girl! I really appreciate you writing back such a nice letter.

So....My thoughts! I love that AG personally wrote back an encouraging letter. That is super awesome of them! I like that they say that they like the idea, and I understand that legal reasons could be a problem. However, we may be on the track for a homeschooled character!! You know, for all people grumbled and groaned back in February and March, AG has fabulous customer service. Also-they visited TheAGSpot?? Apparently, they did; I went through the entry sites on my stats page! That is really amazing, that they would visit some unheard-of 11 year old's blog. And I'm a gifted writer?? Well!! Thank you, AG!

If you wrote a letter to AG, I'd love to hear about it in the comments!!


  1. Wow! The response was so sweet! It would be really cool if they made a home-schooled doll! I've never written an actual letter to AG, but I've sent two emails, just asking about shipping overseas. You're eleven? That's so cool! So am I!

    1. I know, right?? I really hope that they do make a homeschooled character soon. Really? Cool-what did you find out? Hey, awesome! I love it when I find people who are my age!

      Thanks so much for commenting, Sophia!

  2. All that AG said is true, Natalie! You ARE a gifted writer! And, YAY! We just might be getting a homeschooled doll!
    P.S. I don't care is Spellcheck says that I spelled homeschooled wrong.

    1. Aww....thank you, Joy! I hope so! And spellcheck is messed up, so just ignore it :)

  3. Wow, AG is super nice!
    Yay, there may be a homeschooled doll soon!!! I'd love that, since I'm homeschooled. (You probably know that. ��)
    Woah, they visited your blog?!?! Awesome!!! And they're totally right! You are a gifted writer!

    1. They really are!
      I think so! Probably not till 2018 at the earliest, though.
      They did!! Thank you, AG Homeschooler-that means a lot.
