American Girl Store: Where Dolls Come Alive In The Hearts of Little Girls
The American Girl store is a wonderful “showroom” of what is essentially the Rolls-Royce of dolls. I’m sure that it is like no other place you have ever seen! Some say it is a bit over the top and expensive, but this two level mega store is every little girl’s dream come true and you can’t put a price on that! This unique store has everything from a full-service hair salon for your lucky doll, a photo studio for portraits of your kid with her doll and an American Girl Bistro where you can enjoy lunch with your doll, friends and family.
At the American Girl store, you can purchase a doll that looks just like your little girl or you can purchase the Doll of the Year. My daughter loves her “Like Me” doll and and owns four Doll of the Years and plays with them all! No matter what doll you select, I’m sure your daughter will fall in love with her new special friend.
Our Experience At The American Girl Store On New Years Day
We spent our New Years day at the American Girl store in Los Angeles, for the debut of the new doll of the year. Every year, American Girl debuts a new “Doll of the Year” and retires the doll from the previous year. This year, tons of little girls along with friends and their parents, lined the streets of a popular outdoor mall called The Grove. Kids of all ages lined the streets wide-eyed for the debut of the new doll of 2014 and a chance to purchase the doll for $120 before they sold out for the day!
The special event was complete with a red carpet premiere feeling, giveaways and an American Girl arts and crafts section for kids. It was our first time there for New Years day and it was well worth it! We also ate at the American Girl Bistro where they provide a three course meal for you AND your doll! Yes, the bistro provides seating for your doll as well. A day at the American Girl store is something to experience whether you live in Los Angeles or are just visiting this swanky city!
