AG Fakes: What's Real And What's Not

Some people post fake pics of AG Girl Of The Year dolls online. Some people even make fake dolls! Here's how you can tell the difference.


#1: Fake Girl Of The Year Pics

As you can see, Delta Simpson fooled many people. But if you look closely, you'll see Delta's meet outfit is just one of AG's MAG outfits. She is just a MAG.  NOW, IT'S GAME SHOW TIME! Let's see if you can guess the fake Girl Of The Year!

If you guessed C, you are right!


#2: Counterfeit Dolls on EBay and Amazon

Stephenwodadancer's You Tube video clearly explains how to tell the difference between counterfeit and real AG dolls. You can view it in the link above.

The key points she mentions are:


#1: Eyes

Stephenwodadancer says that "her eyes bug out"

The one on the left is the fake.


#2: Eyelashes

Stephenwodadancer mentions that her eyelashes don't cover her entire eye.

See?

#3: Skin Material

She says that the doll's skin doesn't feel like vinyl. It is way too hard.

Here Stephenwodadancer is tapping the doll.

#4: Placement of Company Name

She mentions that the placement of "Pleasant Company" is way too high up.

It's a little hard to see, but it is really high up.

#5: Watermark

I'm not exactly sure what that means, so watch the video for an explanation.

Look where she is pointing, that is the watermark.

There are other points too that Stephenwodadancer talks about in the video, but these are the outer features.

Now you know how tell a counterfeit doll from a real American Girl doll!

  1. I've seen those fake dolls on eBay, I hope no one buys them thinking that she was a real AG doll. That would really be disappointing :( Thanks for the tips on identifying real AGs :)

  3. When I bought Nicki, I did see several dolls that looked counterfeit, but I couldn't tell. Thanks for the advice!
