Re: are American Girl dolls worth the price?
I'd get a knock off one personally. The real ones are $105 + shipping + whatever clothing and accessories since a doll w/o multiple outfits just isn't the same to most kids. You can even get a lot of clothes for the knock off ones. I think craft stores sell them but you could look around for a better one. American Girl dolls are well made, but I think you're mostly paying for the brand name. This post came at a good time b/c we got a catalogue in the mail just today and I ripped off the back cover so I could call and have our name removed from the mailing list. Then again, if you've got the money and it makes you both happy, there's no harm in that.
