I want to take a brief break from the backpack drama between Isabelle and Saige to tell you about our trip to Chicago and American Girl Place.
We had no wishlist in mind when we stopped at AGP, other than Brianna wanted to “see” the doodle backpack. Could not find it anywhere, so we asked at Customer Service. The gals there were very nice, but they didn’t seem to have the capability to look in their inventory and tell us whether the backpack was there or not. The store is so huge it would be easy to miss! Chalk this up to AGs continuing tech woes.
Rather than go find the item, the clerks just rang up Middleton so we could order it with no shipping charge. While they were trying to wrangle the phone over to my side of the counter, there were wanna-be Isabelles lining up behind me to tour the Chicago ballet. Meanwhile, a steady stream of other people started coming up to the desk. It was like a MASH unit! First an “Addy” with no arms and her hair… well, it was painful to see. While I am reciting my credit card for all to hear (twice no less) the clerks have to open another service window to take more incoming wounded dolls. Brianna later said, “Did you see Molly???” And I said, “THAT WAS MOLLY????”
Luckily for you, reader, the Doodle Backpack is currently a PWP (purchase with purchase) for $14. and it is probably sitting right at the register waiting for you. We paid $28.00.
Here is what comes inside:
So, Brianna played a good hand at AG and scored the backpack. I enjoyed saying farewell to this special girl and her collection.
