So much for my powers as a prophet.
Back on August 8, 2011 I foretold that Addy Walker was the next to go, followed by Molly McIntire.
However, it appears that Molly is heading into retirement first.
Rumors have been swirling for months, and at least one customer service representative has confirmed it, but there has been no official announcement.
But now, photos have appeared of a new American Girl catalog with Molly on its cover and the words, "Good-bye Molly! Soon we'll say farewell to Molly. Bring home Molly's 1940s world - before it moves into the American Girl Archives."
While I am sorry to see Molly go, I am relieved that Addy is not on the retirement wagon.
