My niece loves American Girl dolls. Meghan JaMonkey December 16, Act now and save on Doll And Girl Outfits.
In Pleasant Rowland, an American writer, reporter, educator and philanthropist founded Pleasant Company and launched a line of dolls that would change the way girls relate to them. The new line was called American Girl and it was a new proposition in the world of dolls. Rowland wanted to offer girls 8 to 12 years old a doll that was not a baby to care for or a fashion icon, like Barbie.
Rowland wanted to offer girls in that age group a doll that would capture their imagination and enabled them to think and learn about life and history. The American Girl doll was conceived to have a unique identity within a specific historical period.
To this end, each doll had a name and came with a book that covered her story and the period in history when she lived. The purpose of this historical placement of the dolls was to give girls a more personal perspective of American history and the different issues that have affected society at different points. Although the target audience is very young and the books are definitely written and developed with that in mind, the subject matters covered ranged from child labor to poverty, slavery or war.
Today there are more than 30 American Girl dolls, each one with a unique story to tell. Rowland sold the Pleasant Company to Mattel in but continued working for American Girl until she retired in Today, the American Girl line has movies, flagship stores, clothing and accessories for girls and a variety of books about the dolls and also issues concerning the target demographic, 8 to 12 year old girls.

Thank you for writing in. Do you think the offer AG just emailed is as good as it will get for Black Friday or will they have a special BF only deal?
We we have to see, but AG always loves to shake things up and do things differently. The retail trends this year across all stores, have been to start Black Friday sales early, have in-store doorbusters and exclusives, but I will be very interested in seeing how they participate in Cyber Monday and the daily deals over the next few weeks in December.
