We’re a mother and daughter – both of us have other blogs – but we need a forum to share all the ways American Girl has woven itself into our lives. Crafts, creative writing, book reviews and occasional fawning over doll clothes may occur!
A little about my history with AG. When my daughter was little, I always quickly recycled the catalogs when they came in the mail. I thought the prices were outrageous and I didn’t get the allure at all. By the time my daughter was in 1st grade we were spending a lot of time on the couch reading the historical dolls’ fiction, and Addy and Josefina were working their way into our hearts.
About a year later a family member offered to sell us a pre-Mattel Josefina, new in box. Once I saw her up close, I understood what American Girl was all about. Josie was so beautiful, and the face details really set her apart from the average doll at Target. I would have never guessed that after the first doll there would be more!
We look forward to introducing you to all of our dolls in the weeks to come.
