Re: Moms of girls with AG dolls....

  • Well, I have not actually bought any myself, but Maya has a few and an itty baby from when I was little. Those things are 'spensive though, yo! I totally have a new found respect for my parents for buying me all that sh?t. 

    So, an outfit is like $35, give or take, I'd probably give an outfit or 2 for Xmas and birthdays. Although if she wanted a whole new doll for a holiday, I'd get her one with a couple outfits to go with it.

  • Our dd is still a newborn, but we have a doll for her that a family member purchased. (Samantha- before she was discontinued). We are tight on gifting, but I wouldn't see us doing any more than 2-3/year.

  • That's what I think.....2, maybe 3 year (birthdays/Christmas), but when they get money from family members for birthdays or Christmas, maybe an extra one there with that money.

  • My niece buys knock-off clothes...she gets special actual AG outfits for her birthday/Christmas but any other time they just buy clothes that fit them or my mom sews some for her.

  • We gave DD her first AG doll Itty bitty baby for christmas, she loves, so we have not given her any new outfits, her birthday is at the end of the month, we will be giving her a new AG doll Mary Grace ( got her during the American Morning show special), we are also taking to eat at one of the store, maybe we'll get her some outfits while we are there.

  • Judith doesn't have any (yet), but once we do start getting them for her I'm only planning to buy a couple outfits for her birthday or Christmas, maybe for Easter.

    I can't wait to buy DD an AG doll. I'm giddy over it.

     

    I can't wait until DD is old enough for AG. I have a Samantha doll that I got for my 8th birthday. I still have all her outfits, bed, etc. I really want to take DD to the AG store when she gets older and do the tea party.

  • Confession: I never heard of AG dolls before the Bump.

    ETA: I'd blame it on being Canadian, but every time I try to pull that card, Gimmietimmies or Hester or someone else proves me wrong, so...

  • None here yet.  I'm kinda terrified of her finding out about these dolls since they are crazy expensive, and we have a store in our city, so girls are ape shiz over them.  I just missed this craze when I was little.  I think the first books started getting popular when I was 2nd or 3rd grade, and I didn't have any dolls.  Barbie is still where it's at for me.  I can't wait to buy the first Barbie.

    There are also books that go along with the dolls. I think that between my sister and me, we had all of them until the company started retiring dolls and adding new ones. They are great for learning a little bit about all the different time periods.

    I didn't know they existed until the bump.I saw a segment on a talk show once too but I can't remember which came first. I'm sure glad they aren't around here because outfits would probably go for 50 Canadian dollars.

  • I plan on taking DD to AG next year when she turns 4. She's still a little young now but I live only 20 minutes from an AG store. I cannot wait to take her to the tea party!

    dude, I know what these are! My cousins have collected them since the 80s. But I'll give you a pass, my cousins live near Windsor, so spitting distance to Detroit. 

    We have Maplelea dolls, which are Canadian. Almost as pricey. We get about two to three outfits a year, and usually one is from Grandma. We have three right now.

    I just googled Maplelea dolls. Yeah, never heard of them, either. Apparently I was just sheltered. All are adorable, though. I may need to get Nora one of each- AG and ML since she's both American and Canadian. :)

  • They opened a store near me a few years ago, so that's convenient. But I'm kind of dreading the expense. I'm sure it's coming, but right now DD isn't into dolls, so that's good for now. 

    I'm too old to have had any when I was young. LOL!

    I really like them, and I'm not a doll person. T has Taryn, E has Lexi, and K has Saila. My nieces all have the others. Since that happened, we were trying to figure out which one to get S, since it would be a duplicate, but they've introduced customizable ones, so she'll get something different when the time comes.

  • OP I love your siggy pics. Have you considered going to pic monkey and making a collage? Um, it might help make your siggy more normal sized. And not taking up half the page. Or just make them smaller and side by side. Stick out tongue

  • She gets about 4 outfits a year, but they are a combination of AG stuff and stuff from Joann's Fabrics. For Christmas she got AG ice skates and a knock off $5 jacket. She is into making her own clothes for her doll right now. My middle kid doesn't like AG, so nothing for her and we are giving the youngest a doll for her next birthday.

  • I don't buy them. DD buys them with her own money or gets them as gifts. I hate that damn doll.

    I like the books, I will buy those, but not the clothes and accessories. She just went to the store in New York the day after Christmas and spent $275 of gift cards she got from family and Santa {ok, I bought that!} so hopefully she doesn't need anything for awhile.

  • DD gets maybe one outfit a year.  Those dolls are so overpriced they disgust me and honestly, I've been treated so rudely by mothers in that store, I'm glad to rarely take DD there. 

     

    Also, I haven't forgiven them for the bull-puckey written into the Kaya series. It's. . . well, it definitely perpetuates myths, that's for sure.

     

    Still, my 10 year old still plays with dolls, and I guess I can begrudgingly thank AG for that.  But dang they're pricey.  

  • I will wait to see if either of my girls takes an interest in these dolls.  I do think they are really cool, and I love that they tie in with the books.  However, they are insanely expensive.  $35 for an outfit and you buy two at once?  She better really love that doll.  Honestly, if I did buy the dolls, I would probably only do one outfit at a time for birthday and Christmas.  I just can't imagine spending that much on doll clothes.
