Goodbye, Innerstar U!
May 21, 2015

If you love Innerstar University like I do, you won't want to miss this important news. On November 5, 2015, Innerstar University will officially close and you will no longer have access to it.

The Innerstar U campus guides would like you to know that, after Innerstar U closes, we'll miss you and all the good times we've had here. But we'll be looking forward to trying new things, too, such as the Fun-spiration activities on the American Girl Truly Me webpage. Every day, you'll find a new collection of things to do including crafts, mini quizzes, games, advice, recipes, and doll play activities. You'll also find special online pages for Quizzes, Pets, do-it-yourself Videos, and a Fan Gallery where you can submit photos. You can find them by clicking on this link:

And remember, you can still enjoy everything Innerstar U has to offer until November 5th. I know I plan to make the most of our last months at Innerstar U. I hope you do, too!

Sticky Situations
May 11, 2015

I like to read books that tell me how to handle sticky situations—just in case. Life's little problems are a lot easier to manage when you know what to do about them. You can find lots of books full of great advice at Starlight Library. Look for A Smart Girl's Guide: Drama, Rumors, & Secrets; A Smart Girl's Guide: Staying Home Alone; and Is This Normal?. If you're like me, reading them will help you feel more confident—whether you use the advice to help yourself or someone else.

If you have questions about anything in the advice books, be sure to talk to your mom or dad about it. A parent might have the perfect answer for you. Remember, sharing your thoughts and feelings with a person you can trust is the first step to feeling better.

Water, Water, Everywhere
April 20, 2015

It's raining; it's pouring. But that's no reason to be boring! When it's raining outside, I don't worry about staying dry. Instead, I get completely wet by diving into my favorite water activity. Try it—you'll like it. Play DIVE IN, or join a rowing crew at Starfire Lake in STARFIRE REGATTA.

What's your idea of watery fun on a rainy day? Would you put on your galoshes for an afternoon of puddle jumping? Or would you prefer to go on a worm hunt? Maybe you'd like to stay inside for a warm, relaxing bath. Whatever you choose, you're sure to make a splash!

Rainy-Day Happening
April 6, 2015

April is famous for its showers, and I'd like to celebrate with a rainy-day happening. Wouldn't it be fun to see lots of girls in raincoats all over Innerstar University? Help make my dream come true! Get a raincoat from Casual Closet and wear it around campus. Then, if you see another girl wearing a raincoat, send her a friend request!

Do you have a special rainy-day outfit? Maybe you have a ravishing raincoat, some gorgeous galoshes, or a beautiful umbrella. Take a look what you've got and put together an amazing rainy-day outfit. You'll be stepping into spring showers in style.

Hobby Shop
March 16, 2015

I'm so excited! I was just at CAMPUS CLUB FAIR at the Market. Visiting the fair is like shopping for hobbies. It makes me think about all sorts of fun sports and activities. Now I feel as if the world is full of interesting new things for me to do. If you play Campus Club Fair, you might feel that way, too.

You could also take it a step further and try something new at home or at school. Look into joining a new club or team. Invite a new friend to sit with you at lunch. Help your parents cook a recipe they've never made before. Or play a board game with your family instead of watching TV. With so many things to do, you could try something new every day!

Dance Fever
March 2, 2015

When I feel spring coming on, it puts a spring in my step, which turns into dance fever! In fact, I'm going to boogie on over to Brava Boutique right now. I can't wait to try on the new Pretty Plié Outfit and the new Sparkly Jazz Outfit. After that, I'll probably shuffle over to U-Shine Hall to play DANCE SPECTACULAR. Maybe you'd like to join me. Would you care to dance?

Then again, nothing beats a spontaneous dance jam right where you are. Just turn on some music and kick out your best moves! Ask your friends and family to dance, too. Next, do some freestyle or practice the latest dance steps you've been trying to learn. Don't sweat it if you make a mistake. A misstep is just another step toward getting better.
