Tips for Families

TIP - Let me point out that the famous name building brick store is located within a short walk of the AG store - we sent the boys in that general direction so that we could take our time. TIP - If you are planning a trip to the salon - get there early - by 10:30 when we came back for our appointment, there was a line about 20 dolls deep just to book an appointment. We were told by our stylist that it is much less busy in the hair salon during the week. The appointment takes about 30 minutes - depending on services/style.

My daughter loves this place ...

Submitted by: Andrew G.

It was fun taking my daughter to the AGP in NYC but it was also a little horrifying at the same time for all the reasons that everyone cites (lots of wickedly entitled kids running amok, doll clothes that cost more than people clothes, rampant consumerism). At the same time, it is undeniably a place that makes the kids happy and it was amusing to see a few of the other beleaguered dads being dragged along in the same bizarre rite of father-daughter passage.  I didn't participate in the lunch and tea ceremony with my daughter and her  newly-acquired doll (it was Kenani, the 2011 doll of the year!), but my wife did and she reported that the experience--if not the food--was high quality. Anyway, the folks there...

I am absolutely ambivalent to the American Girl Place itself, considering that I am a 25 year old male who's never played with dolls and that I have no daughters (or children, for that matter). So why was I here?  I met my girlfriend and her sister, brother in law, and nieces here.  My girlfriend's nieces are 3 and 6 years old and seemed to love this place. And yes, they do have an actual functioning hair salon for dolls.  So bizarre and creepy!  Being in this store made me mildly embarrassed to be an American (I'm only half joking). So really, I'd probably have given this place 5 stars, seeing as how much my girlfriend's nieces enjoyed this place.  However, I am knocking it down two stars, considering how t...
