American Girl Wellie-Wishers

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.

  1. They look cute so far - I'll be curious to see more as we get closer to release.

    Although based on the prototype outfits that were leaked a few months ago, I suspect that they're probably going to be closer to the Hearts for Hearts/Corelle Les Cheries size than there are to Barbie.

    1. I think the "Barbie-sized" description is way off, too, jSarie. I look forward to seeing the final product.

  2. Those dolls are adorably cute. There seems to be a market for that type of doll right now, so I guess American Girl wants to jump into the market.

    1. Adding a line like this is a smart move for AG. These will make perfect little sisters for the 18-inch dolls.

  3. Cute! I've never warmed to American Girl type dolls but I can see the appeal of these girls.

  4. Thanks for linking to the Wiki! I'm the founder and I try to make sure the information there is up to date. They're going to release next weekend, and I'm hoping to get Kendall (the black one) and do a review of her.
