We were some of the earliest girls for our reservation time slot. Once things got going it was packed!
Me and Kirsten
Something happened to her eye. We call it the Mad Eye Moody thing goin' on. I'll send her to the doctor when she comes out to play more later in life. Seriously, I mean the AG doctor. Your doll comes back with a hospital gown, bracelet and balloon.
Val and Samantha
We had been hoping to do tea but didn't realize they have special days for full on tea.
Our server was so awesome, he brought us our sparkling strawberry watermelon lemonade (yes, it was as amazing as it sounds) in our big soda glasses AND a tea pot!
Our girl got tea cups with their own lemonade!
On the table they had these neat conversation cards.
We laughed at this one because Valerie's love of mittens extends to her own hand sign for mittens. See below.
The girls liked it too!
Yep! Your AG doll can even watch you pee.
When we got home we needed a rest so the girls tried on their souvenir outfits. AG Dallas shirts, skirts by me and the flower from dessert!
It was seriously a great adventure! I had so much fun! I remember reading about others adventures to the store in the catalog and magazines and thought it sounded like so much fun! The dolls have changed, some have been retired, and there are many new dolls! I still to this day enjoy the magazine (ad free...well except for everyone who writes in and talks about their American Girl stuff...but no body bashing or negative image pushing) and all the great ideas and activities they come up with! I love that this company pairs reading with play, and promotes positive, healthy traits and attitudes. (Unsolicited plug over.)
Know Before You Go:
-Different stores offer different things. The Dallas store didn't have some of the things I've seen in the LA or Chicago store when I peeked in.
-It's pricey. Plan how much you want to spend or what you intend to buy before you go! It's really easy to get caught up in the moment!
