Can someone please tell me what the appeal of these American Girl Dolls are? I happened to go to a particular restaurant two times this month. And both times, there were girls with dolls everywhere - in the restroom, in the bar area, at the tables.
This picture is of the table that was next to mine. I think there were about five dolls sitting in the middle of the table while these folks ate. Kind of creepy I thought until I went on the website today and saw they cost about a hundred dollars a head . Then I wished I had kidnapped several of the little freaky things and held them for ransom.
(Makes me feel a wee bit more justified on how much I spent out on that shirt now.. I mean, if snotty nosed kids can command that much cash..)
My youngest had the right idea - she loves her sisters Barbies.. tied up and decappitated.
Yes, you could kidnap and hold for ransom. It's fine if you injure them - there is actually an American Girl Doll Hospital :)
I now it was not in good taste, but couldn't resist....
Not warped at all Sassy. I'm just afraid it would come alive at night and run around my house.
And that shirt is the bomb Shrinky. Plus, you can't wear a doll (unless of course you duct tape it to your waist or head). LOL about the Barbies.
I wish I had thought of this Lyn. It's the only thing that seems to be thriving in this economy.
LOL Ms. Creek - Yes there were some kids there. But I did see one of the adults fussing with one of the dolls - and I did a double take.
Hey A! I could never injure one of these - too life like. But holding one for ransom doesn't seem like a bad idea.
That is too funny McMeaty! That will teach you not to bite.
Hey S - They are a little creepy to me. A female version of Chuckie.
One day when they all come to life we'll all be begging for mercy.
I kept it all for about 6 months then gave it away to a friend's daughter... ;)
Hi Two Ladies! Alright, but if you get one, you have to post about it. Promise.
Hi Kimber! Thank you for the visit. I agree, I would rather go for the American Girl than the Bratz. Although I am intrigued the Bratz accessories come wired for sound...
Hey Rubye Jean! Yes, these seem to be the fad of the moment for now. Remember when everyone wanted a cabbage patch kid? Yes - Go Cards!
Hey Chewy - I'm a fan of Big Jim and his karate action arm myself. GI Joe and Big Jim would probably poo poo American Girl.
You too Ms. Creek! Hope the weather is good in MT!
