I have an 11 year old daughter and fortunately she just missed the obsession called “American Girl”. Se is just a little bit too old to catch the American Girl craze. I’ve breiefly heard about American Girl….yet was still shocked when I drove up to the Northpoint Mall today and saw an entire store dedicated to American Girl.!? Thank you God for saving me from this expensive passion that my daughter just missed. I’m not sure I would have survived it (financially).
