|Wellie-Wishers, a new doll line coming soon from American Girl|
On March 13, 2015, a trademark was filed for American Girl for the name Wellie-Wishers. The trademark was published for opposition on January 5, 2016. As of yet, the trademark has not been registered. However, images of a new line of dolls (one image of which is seen above) planned to use this name have been circulating on the Internet via blogs, a wiki, logos, and other sources.
The dolls are described in a blog post by Welcome to Mommy N Me AG as smaller-than 18 inches, larger-than-Barbie (see link to blog post below). One source describes them as Barbie-sized, 15 inches. Their thinner bodies must have warranted the "Barbie-sized" description. Although there is no official description of the dolls, according to their wiki page, "The line is named after 'wellies,' a term for Wellington boots/rubber rain boots popularized in the UK." Note that all dolls wear cute rubber footwear in the above image.
I wanted to share the information here for those who, like me, were unaware of the company's plans to release these refreshing-looking dolls.
