While we were at the Galleria for the Shine On Saturdays at GapKids, (Today is the last day by the way!) my daughter Joy noticed the American Girl store and begged us to go see it. My girls have never had any American Girl dolls, but Joy has a magazine that we recieved and she loves to dream through it.
I had no idea what we were going to see when we walked into this store. It is amazing. The first floor had dolls, furniture, clothes and accessories galore. But the upstairs is what took their breath away. First there is the American Girl Cafe where girls can have lunch with their doll. They have highchairs that hook to the table to accommodate the doll, and who is also served play food along with the meal! How fun is that! If you don’t have a doll or didn’t bring it, they have plenty that you can dine with anyway. We didn’t eat, but I agree with the girls, it would be fun!
Then there is the doll hair salon! Actual doll stylists comb and fix the dolls’ hair. If that doesn’t beat all! Joy wants so badly to go back. She says she is saving her money for a doll and wants to spend her Mommy and Me day here. I can’t imagine that she would be able to save that much money, but I would love to take her again some time to enjoy the fun without the boys!
If you’re ever near a store, you’ve got to go in and look around. I’ve never seen anything like it!
