When you go an an American Girl blog or Website, you are likely to see some leaks and rumors of upcoming American girl products, right? Right. But is that really a good thing? How do these people get the images? And wouldn’t you think American Girl, a HUGE company, would keep their prototypes under their hats?
The truth is, American Girl does have good security, but the people I like to think of as AG Sleuths, spend many hours of their time doing their homework and tracking down the information, trademarks, and images. To explain, it’s like a cycle, the AG sleuth finds a leak, posts it on Facebook or Instagram, Bloggers follow the sleuth on their social media account, hence they post it on their blog, and create their own rumors.
The dictionary definition of leaks:
An intentional disclosure of SECRET information.
That’s right, secret. American girl does not give away their leaks. But the real mystery is eBay sellers. How on Earth do they get those products to auction off? More often than not, they’re hoaxes, that either have nothing to do with AG or a very old item from AG, hence the reason why buyers are eager to buy, because they are unrecognizable products, tricking us to think they are new. But how do they get these prototypes, if they’re real? My guess is that there might be a slip in the company, a worker or something that takes a copy of the prototype home. That might be completely wrong though, because nobody knows the answer!
It all sounds a bit suspicious to me. American Girl sets these release dates for a reason. So that American Girl fans can get the full experience. Why do I say this? Because more often than not, the outfits are incomplete. When Lea’s celebration Dress was leaked, no shoes. When we first caught a look at Maryellen, we saw a girl with blue eyes and full bangs. She has green eyes and sideswept bangs.
And why can’t we just wait? The for The Girl of the Year line is so girls can enjoy it for one year, not the year before! we need to have patience.
And I hate it when we guess who is retiring next, because why would you look forward to hearing bad news! At least you would think that would be something you would want to wait for!
In conclusion, I don’t understand the joy that leaks bring. They are downright suspicious. The AG Sleuths literally track down this material! They might be a complete hoax, which means you will never be able to buy it, they are incomplete, you have no idea what the pricing will be, and the trademarks leaked all over the internet are vague and mysterious, because AG chooses to use code names in their trademarks. All I’m saying, is that It would be so much better without these vague ans suspicious leaks.
