I’m here! AND I got a new dress! AND a new friend!


It's me, Maryellen!

It’s me, Maryellen!

Hello, world! It’s me, Maryellen Larkin of the AGGiK! I got here on Giftmas and I was a surprise for the rest of the gang, but now I’ve been here awhile and Elyse says I can blog now! And what a thing to blog about!

I GOT A NEW DRESS FROM MISS BETH!  And it’s just the prettiest dress ever! I’m so excited!

Giftmas, Giftmas Time is Here…

Hey you guys! It’s Caro! I get to do this one!

It’s my most favoritest time of the year – GIFTMAS! (We call it Giftmas around here because our Big Person is an Atheist, so we celebrate Giftmas as the Day of the Giving and Receiving of Stuff and Time Spent with Family rather than the supposed day of some savior’s birth. But if someone says “Merry Christmas” to us, we’ll respond in kind!)

Our Big Person will probably have to work on Giftmas Eve, if not Giftmas Day, so we’re getting into our pajamas early. Usually we do a big photostory on Giftmas Eve/Giftmas Day but depending on her job, we might not be able to. We want to! We’ll just have to see.



Here we are in our super cute pajamas! Anyway, after we got changed, our Big Person put us back in our rooms and decided to interview us about what we thought about the year, and who we think is coming! Cause see… I heard her mumbling.

I don’t think there’s just one new girl coming along anymore. No, hear me out! See, I was listening and chatting with Elyse on our laptops (it’s our chief mode of communication when we’re in our rooms! Ah, technology! I love being a historical-turned-moddie! Ahem.) who could hear better than I could…

It’s true, I have hearing like a bat! Also I was a foot above her head.

…and the door was open. It’s not like this was hard, Caro…

ANYWAY. She was going through some of the extra underwear sets she has laying around and I know and Elyse sent it to me too:

“These’ll be good for her and these ones here will work for…”

See? I think there’s someone else coming! So we’re gonna bring this up, I think. We’re all united in this, but it’ll be fun to see who it is!

We do know who it isn’t. If Mari’s barely-contained rage at seeing the pictures of her is any indication, it’s not Lea Clark, Girl of the Year for 2016. But that’s okay. We have two Girls of the Year! The superior ones too! HA.

Read on!

We forgot we had this blog

Sometimes our Big Person gets busy with things and then forgets that we have a blog, and then we forget we have a blog and so then when we remember it turns into a whole dramatic thing. Seriously, Zoë got all kinds of bent out of shape about it, which is silly because she has a laptop and an iPad and she could make her own damn blog if she wanted to and she never has, so clearly it’s not that important.

Excuse me, Elyse, but it is important.

Clearly, Zoë. Clearly.

Anyway, there’s been a lot of happenings around here lately! There’s news that’s fit to print and things to look forward to and lots of pictures. So come see with me!

Look Out, Internet – The AGGiK Got a Blog!

Hello world!


My name is Mari Campbell, and I want to welcome you to The Dolls in the Dorms, the internet home of that most fabulous of American Girl doll gangs, the AGGiK! What does AGGiK stand for? Well, if you know us, you know what it stands for. If you don’t… well, our Big Person doesn’t like for us to put our identifying information out there for the whole world to see, so you’ll just have to use your imaginations!

Anyway, I’m the leader of the gang here an–

*snrrrk* Maybe in your own head you are.

Elyse! Shush! You know I’m the First Arrival!

Yeah, but who’s the one who everyone sees and automatically knows who I belong to? It sure ain’t you.

And I suppose you think it’s you?

Actually, I know it’s me, sassypants. 

Pfff. Whatever. Anyway, as I was saying… wait, where was I?

*facepalm* Anyway, y’all. Hope you’ll stick around and learn more about us! We hope to have all kinds of fun adventures and things to share with you as time goes on! There’s seven of us here, eight when our friend who’s off at boarding school comes home. Our Big Person doesn’t have our bios up yet, but you can get a basic idea of who’s here by clicking that little link up top that says “The Girls of the Blog.” I’ll yell at our Big Person to get that done sometime soon.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! We’ll post again real soon!
