The GOTY 2017 has been leaked, and I am not impressed.
This is Gabriela Mcbride.
Gabriela is #46. Are you kidding me?! This is ridiculous. There is absolutely no difference between #46 and Gabriela, and it seems AG was well aware of this, for they retired #46 earlier this year. She has dark skin, the classic face mold, curly brown hair, and brown eyes. No difference whatsoever! I'm really aggravated by this. They can't discontinue a doll, put her in a new outfit, and call it a new item. Not cool, AG. Not cool.
Gabriela comes in some jeggings, purple and teal sneakers, and a purple crop tee layered with a teal tank-top; her hair is thrown up in a pink headband. I do not like this get-up. The sneakers have already been out before, simply pink instead of purple. Those jeggings have come with loads of outfits. The shirt appears to be poorly-made, something AG would once hand out for free at a GOTY's release. Evidently, those days are over.
Gabriela is a dancer. Another. Dancer. Why can't we have a doll who's a basketball star, a doll who writes, or maybe a doll who doesn't know what her talent is? Or, shocker, a GOTY whose life doesn't revolve around a common hobby. Maybe a doll dealing with loss, divorce, or poverty! The real girls of America deal with more than twirls and pirouettes. Honestly, this whole doll is just a repeat of different dolls and items. She stutters, which is nice, (finally some disability representation) but they seem to be focusing more on her dance-life. AG is missing out on a great story!
Overall, if you can't tell, I do not like Gabriela. However, this is my opinion, and it's ok if you love her! I simply do not. Let me know in a comment: Do you agree or disagree with my points? What do YOU think of the Girl Of The Year 2017?
