** 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.

** Most people either hate [[TheOneGuy Logan Everett]] for introducing a male character into a line aimed at women, 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.

** Other known Base Breakers: Pleasant Company items vs. Mattel's (to the point PC items are often called "Pre-Mattel"); The [=BeForever=] relaunch, which some collectors find a a unnecessary change in character designs and book changes while others feel that the relaunch gave new breath into the line and refocused the line on the age-range of eight-to-twelve year old girls as the primary audience; any character from a later time period than the 1940s, particularly among people who actually lived through their decade (some feel like [[{{Maam}} they're being called old]] by their childhood being marketed as historical, others find Maryellen, Melody, and Julie nostalgic and note that even the ''modern'' line was initially marketed saying that all time was history, including the present).

** 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.

** The same liberal end of the fandom applies the same logic to the girl of the year Chrissa, and her two "girlfriends" Gwen and Sonali, making them a modern triad.


Added DiffLines:

** Occasionally, elements of the ships' opposing supporters sometimes bury their differences by proposing a triad of Felicity/Ben/Elizabeth.

** 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 use it for way different purposes than intended.

*** And in the same vein as Coca-Cola and Microsoft, AG has since [[https://www.facebook.com/americangirl/posts/1432849116758244 announced]] that they will discontinue the permapanties, mere months after it was first announced.

** Even more so with the so-called "permapanties" i.e. permanently-stitched underwear, done by AG as a cost-cutting measure among other things. Needless to say, fans were livid over the change, occasionally comparing it to New Coke or Windows 8's start screen in terms of unnecessary change to a well-received product. Aftermarket doll accessory makers responded with [[http://www.alldolledup-dollclothes.com/store/p427/The_Solution.html conversion kits]] for worn out or permapantied dolls though.

* AwesomeArt: The Historical Characters' book illustrations (from when they had illustrations) are not only very pretty to look at, but they reflect the time period and setting. For example, the family portraits in Molly's books are in black and white. The portraits in Kirsten's series are the only ones to have full-body images of the families, and have full background images as well.

* RetroactiveRecognition: The first two films introduced two young actresses who would go on to achieve, if not superstardom, then certainly a ''lot'' of success in their acting careers, nearly a decade before they became famous; Samantha Parkington was played by a nine-year-old Creator/AnnaSophiaRobb, and Felicity Merriman was played by a fourteen-year-old Creator/ShaileneWoodley.
