** Addy being DemotedToExtra. She and her items rarely appear in the catalogs, usually with just a picture of her and a note to "find her things at American Girl. com!" Then there are the fans who complain about her hair, [[ButNotTooBlack her skin tone]], her accessories, etc.
** Consciously averted with many of the minority characters, who fly in the face of ethnic stereotypes. Addy is very intelligent, Cecile is rich and popular, Rebecca is generous, Josefina is shy, Ivy is athletic, and none of them could be considered lazy. Unfortunately played straight with Lindsey, though...

** Most people either hate [[TheOneGuy Logan Everett]] for introducing a male character into a line aimed at girls and taking focus, or adore him for a sign of American Girl branching out past the all-girl ensembles and targeting other audiences. There are few in-betweens.

** Most people either hate [[TheOneGuy Logan Everett]] for introducing a male character into a line aimed at girls and taking focus, not to mention using a face mould that was only intended for Kaya rather than a generic mould, or adore him for a sign of American Girl branching out past the all-girl ensembles and targeting other audiences. There are few in-betweens.



** What is the name of Kirsten's baby sister whose birth nearly eclipsed Kirsten's 10th birthday and stunted her social life? [[Series/{{Community}} Britta]].
** In ''Molly Saves the Day,'' the last game played at Camp Gowonagin before the campers leave is Color War. Who's one of the characters on the enemy team? [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 A Red scout.]]



** Ironically, one of the supporting actors in the ''Molly'' TV movie, particularly the one playing the title character's mother Helen [=McIntire=], is named Creator/MollyRingwald.



** American Girls Premiere bears a lot of similarities to [[Website/GoAnimate Go Animate]], even down to the text-to-speech voices and the fact that most people [[NotTheIntendedUse use it for way different purposes than intended]].

** One for doll owners: In some older dolls, the internal parts of one or both eyes may come unglued, resulting in a rather scary-looking effect called [[http://americangirl.wikia.com/wiki/Silver_Eye silver eye]]. Thankfully, the Doll Hospital will fix it at no cost.

** In ''Samantha: An American Girl Holiday'', Aunt Cornelia gives Samantha a copy of ''The Wizard of Oz'' the first time they meet. A decade later, the same actress would appear on ''OnceUponATime'' as...The Wicked Witch of the West.

** Logan, the first boy doll, was released with the Kaya face mold--which had been specially designed to not show teeth as it is a cultural taboo among the Nimipuu people and had not been used for any other characters or in any other line. The implications of the first boy doll having a Native American face are....they're not good.

** In "Happy Birthday, Samantha!", after [[ItMakesSenseInContext Samantha and her friends have ice cream and lemonade full of salt]], and Cornelia asks Agatha and the girls "Why do all look so sour?", Samantha replies "Not sour, ''salty''." This was long before it became popular on the internet to use said word to describe someone in a foul mood.

** LGR did a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqGwUffHyCo review]] on it, where he mentioned it was one of the most amusing dick joke simulators. The comments on the video mention all sorts of unusual productions people made, like people falling down the stairs, murder "mysteries", and swear words. You could also record your own dialogue with your voice... which resulted in all sorts of unusual screams.

* PortingDisaster: The [[https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.americangirl.welliewishersapp Android port]] of ''[=WellieWishers=]: Garden Fun'', was particularly egregious as it flat-out crashes on certain devices due to an error with the Unity engine powering it. And it got even worse when [x]cube Games released version 1.1, to which no device was able to run it for some reason. It didn't help that ''Garden Fun'' is an AllegedlyFreeGame requiring in-app purchases to unlock minigames and is nothing more than a social "clicker" game at its core, both of which have been controversial business models especially with games aimed at children.
