From age 3-7 I played a lot with these
Then from the ages 8-10 I really was into the American Girl Doll series. Now when these first were released, there were only 3 dolls! Kirsten, Samantha, & Molly. They had the dolls tied with stories about their lives during specific time periods in the United States. Molly's time was during World War II. Now there are so many dolls I don't even know them all. I think the company lost their value when they came up with the concept of kids being able to create their own doll.
Thankfully my Grandma is storing Molly for me in her basement, till one day when I have a HOUSE of my own, I can store her safely and maybe one day give her to a child of mine.
Any favorites of yours?
