    Default Fluff - American Girl Dolls

    Are American Girl Dolls worth the price? Do your kids play with them any more than a normal doll? Would you buy one for your child?

    I'm hoping to never have to spend $100 on a doll. Sadly my daughter is now aware of them, but I'll hold out as long as I can. The price seems absolutely outrageous to me.

    We have a big American Girl store at the mall near where I live. I've heard that you can take your kids in for a tea party with their dolls and it's actually pretty fun. But over all, $100 American Girl dolls make me happy that I have boys. LOL

    My niece 8 and best friends daughter 12 each have one. Their mom's both made them earn the money for them. They play with them alot. The 12 year old has multiple ones that she has bought with holiday money. She still loves them.

    My daughter has an old knock-off, it's actually probably vintage something from before American Girl even existed but it's not worth anything after she "did" the hair, LOL. Someone gave it to her when she was three and she loves that doll and plays with her all the time. Then last year a bunch of her friends got American Girl dolls and she just *had* to have one, and we resisted for the better part of a year. Then Grandpa gave us birthday money to spend for her, so we broke down and got the damned thing. And now she plays with both of them equally because they are her twins. The American Girl does have much better hair, I'll give them that. We did NOT buy any of the accessories; for those, we go to Target and get their "Our Generation" stuff. The Our Generation dolls seem to have decent hair, too.

    Alyssa has not asked for one, but mentioned that all her friends have one. If we got her one for Christmas it would be all we got her. I might see what I can find on craigslist or eBay for cheaper.

    My niece, who is definitely not a girly-girl, has one she got from my parents a few Christmas' ago. Each year for her birthday and Christmas she asks for money/gift cards to spend there, and we go down there when they're here for the holidays and have lunch there.

    I asked MIL to get DD a Designa Friend Doll, see below..



    I thought she would LOVE it as it comes with 3 outfits and a bracelet for DD. I figured she'd love doing their hair with her little hair dresser set she has..... Not a chance!

    She ALWAYS goes back to her very first doll....



    I say it's not worth the money!
