Can you hear the squeals of little girls all over Central Florida? Oh wait, those are my own squeals! American Girl is coming to Orlando, and I am very very excited.
The American Girl Store will open at the Florida Mall in the fall of 2014.
I visited my first American Girl Store this summer in Chicago, and the entire time all I could think was, “I wish my daughters were here.” It is so much more than just a retail store, it is destination. From a boutique for the dolls to a dinner for the girls to enjoy tea with their dolls — it is like a little girl’s paradise.
And I am not ashamed to admit, I was in heaven too. Although it would heave been even better with my girls.
My girls are each proud owners of Bitty Baby dolls. (Well, the youngest will be receiving hers on Friday for her second birthday, but she is currently under the impression that her big sister’s doll is hers anyway.) They love the Bitty Baby and all of her accessories, but they have no idea how much more they will love American Girl dolls. No idea.
K will be six and a half when the store opens next fall, the perfect time to get her first American Girl doll, don’t ya think? And maybe some new accessories for Sissy’s Bitty Baby.
Oh I just can’t wait.
