Dr. Toy Play Hints
Dr Toy’s Tips for Smart Play Learning and Fun
Take time out each day for games, puzzles, art, music, construction toys, books, puppets, and various other play products. Children learn best through play. Smart toys encourage children to maximize their potential.
Take inventory of current toys; take stock of what your child is playing with, what is not used and what is needed next.
Vary play experiences, such as construction products, puzzles, creative and skill-building products, to help your child gain self-confidence, increase learning and expand imagination.
Choose play experiences for your child that require concentration, thinking, involve skills and cognitive learning.

American Girl News for 2009
It seems like our readers had the scoop long before anyone else did!!
First, the next AG movie will be about the 2009 Girl of the Year. . . Actress Sammi Hanratty said in a red carpet interview at the Kit movie premiere that she was going to be in an AG movie about the 2009 Girl of the Year which had already filmed and was to come out in January 2009. Click HERE for the link to her interview. (Picture above is of Mia, the 2008 Doll of the Year, modeling our Patriotic Dress)
I also searched for Sammi and didn't learn too much although it seems she has been in lots of TV roles . . . so, I conclude that this is a TV Movie - just like the Samantha, Felicity and Molly ones - and not a full-length movie like Kit is. I also concluded that the 2009 Doll will not be an ethnic doll!
The next AG movie about a historical character will be the musical about 1970's girl Julie Albright (as shown above in her new Perfect Peasant Dress!) according to Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, producer of the Kit movie. The movie, which is just in outline form right now, will have music from the 70's as well as original songs written for the movie. Waiting to see who will play Julie, Ivy and Julie's sister too!
Other information we just learned is that American Girl has filed several names for possible use on future dolls ie Rebecca, Chrissa, Lanie, and Sonali. Stay tuned as we learn more!
