Complaints about the price of these dolls falls on deaf ears. These dolls are pure genius. The company embraces literacy, compassion, and good honest hard work. I'm happy, no delirious, to shop American Girl every Christmas for the past four years. Nope. I don't get the goodies for free, Most of the time, I'm just like you. I get the catalogs, my girls drool over them and then when a special occasion like a birthday or Christmas rolls around, then we make the splurge.
