Some of you might not have heard that Barnes and Noble is currently having a giveaway. 100 winners nationwide will receive a brand new Caroline Abbott doll in a random drawing taking place on October 15th. You can either enter online or in stores, but there is only one entry allowed per person and per email address. Also, all entrants must be at least 18 years old, so if you're younger than that, you'll have to get a parent to enter for you. If you'd like to enter online, you can click HERE to go directly to Barnes and Noble's Caroline Drawing page.
The other great thing about this giveaway is that it gives those of us without an AG Place nearby an opportunity to see this gorgeous new doll in person! :) I hightailed it for my local Barnes and Noble this morning after dropping off my two older daughters at school, and sure enough, there was Caroline, looking adorable but slightly claustrophobic in her protective plexiglass. ;)
I had my cell phone with me, so I took a couple of pictures. (Sorry about the crummy quality!! I don't have a smart phone.) ;) Trust me, these pictures do NOT do her any sort of justice.
As you can probably tell, I also had a major problem with the store lights reflecting off of the plastic surface of her container.
Still, it was wonderful to be able to see her in person. Her eyes are just stunning, and I am well on my way to being completely "in love" with this doll. :D It probably won't be anytime soon, but someday I would like to add Caroline to my doll family.
I decided to purchase a "Meet Caroline" book while I was there, so I'll be sure to share my thoughts after I've had a chance to read it. :)
Now off you go to enter the drawing! ;)
