Now if you have never been to one of these stores or even heard of American Girl Dolls before let me tell you a little bit about them.
The dolls represent different times in American History. Each one has a name, a story, clothes and accessories that go with the doll and the time she is from.
The store is huge! It's two stories. Upstairs you will find most of the dolls. They each have a room with their name and the year they came from.
Then they have all the outfits and accessories to go with her. As well as, books, CDs and DVDs.
If your doll should "get hurt" and say break a leg, arm or even have her head fall off, then you can get her all fixed up at the Doll Hospital. When she is returned to you she is as good as new.
They even have little crutches, casts and wheel chairs.
You and your doll can go to the photo studio and have your picture taken and turned into a magazine cover.
Or you can go to the theater and see a live show with all the dolls coming to life and telling their stories.
The colors are all black, white and pink. Very cute.
The napkin rings are pink pony tail holders with a bow on them. You get to keep these. Very cute idea.
They give you a little seat for your doll and her own plate and cup. This is one of Trinity's American Girl Dolls. She has a total of 5. They even have little American Girl dolls for your doll. Can you believe it.
To start off the meal you get little mini cinnamon rolls. The photo didn't come out so I could not show it to you but they were very tasty.
The next thing they bring out is a tray with veggies, fruit and chips along with dipping sauces.
Trinity got this darling little mini hot dog and hamburger with curly fries and fruit. My other sister, Patty, got a Tuna sandwich and salad. Their photos didn't turn out.Even though you are stuffed by the time dessert comes, you can't help but enjoy your little heart shaped cake, star cookie and flower pot of mouse.
After we ate we went back to shopping. Look at all the cute things this little one has.
You could even get a chance to win this great tree house.
They have any kind of sport you would want your little doll to play. The above is golfing.
There is a whole room that only has baby dolls. The American Girl Dolls are all "older" girls. But of course some younger little girls really want a baby doll.
There are many many to pick from. As well as all sorts of toys, clothes, carriers, baths and so on.
This is a fun store, a great way to learn about the history of our country and spend some quality time with your little girl.
However, I must warn you, it is very very costly. The dolls are almost $100 each and the outfits run around $25- $35 each. Some of the bigger accessories can run into the hundreds!
But, if you ever get a chance to go you should. Even if you just go to look around. You have never seen another doll store like American Girl Dolls.
