American Girl...love it or hate it you simply have to admire the empire. We're fans of this brand--it promotes reading and a knowledge of history. Plus, we find the fashions irresistible. For die-hard fans, a visit to NYC's American Girl store is a must-see. Even if your daughter is too young to "get" this doll and her big concept, we bet your tot will still love all the eye candy at the store.
The enormous store is situated on 5th Avenue--where all the chic ladies shop. Plan to dine in the restaurant. Yes the prices are high, but the point is that you can dine with your doll (or get a loaner if you didn't tote along your Rebecca, Kanani, etc.). We didn't splurge for a hairdo, but we did admire the handiwork of the salon stylists.
Be sure to take a peek at the hospital and the shoe selection too. This store is non-stop shopertainment. Oh, and it is extremely stroller friendly.
