How many American Girl dolls?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

How many American Girl dolls is too many? 

 

If you watch AG videos on youtube you will see that some children have a dozen or so.  dh would flip out.

 

My girls have 3 each.  Felicity and Kirsten were no cost after some wheeling and dealing I did with a Craigslist purchase.  They saved their money up for Kanani.  We've only bought one for them for Christmas (Chrissa and Elizabeth).

 

They both want AG dolls for Christmas.  dh will probably say NO.  I can't blame him but at the same time, isn't Christmas about getting what you want?

A dozen?  That's excessive to me, but I guess if you can afford it (or Grandparents want to give them as gifts)-- why not?   My daughter had two of the Bitty Babies and two of the full size American Girl dolls.

My girls had one each and dh flipped out over those!!  I always wanted to get them another one each, but now they have outgrown them and its time to move on.  So now those really expensive dolls just sit, but they don't want to part with them.

My girls ended up with 2 each before they lost interest.  I thought that was plenty.  Of course, they now have them to pass down to their own kids (should they have any).

None at my household but Dino Girl was never interested in dolls.

....hanging my head in shame.....lol I plead the 5th. I do have three AG obsessed girls after all. They want the entire collection of the Historical dolls. 

 

My oldest got one every bday and christmas since she was 6 (she is 10 now). My 2nd daughter has 2 big dolls (bday and christmas), and a bitty twin. My youngest has the other bitty twin and 1 big doll coming for Christmas. I have three more still in my closet saved for next year. I'm not going to add that up, b/c I don't want to know. In my defense, I have only bought a couple of them new. EXdh bought some and I scored a huge lot from a nice woman on CL that was selling her collection. Her 3 daughters were ready to let them go and she gave me a great deal on all of it b/c she thought my girls were so cute ($200 for 8 dolls, tons of clothes, shoes, and all books).

Trust me, Stacia, if my kid was into them, she'd probably have them all too. smile.gif DH has that all or none attitude.

DD1 has 1 big doll and DD2 has the bitty twins.  I will be getting DD1 McKenna for Christmas.  DH will freak out, but money comes from my parents.

 

Just now got her Julie's bed too.  :)  I love love dolls and I love brushing their hair - mommy only gets to use the hairbrush. ;)

My DD had bitty baby, and 3 of the regular sized American Girls dolls (the Indian, Samantha, and I forget the third at the moment) and she had several of the smaller girls of other lands dolls that they've since discontinued. The thing was she never enjoyed them enough for the money they cost. My DD cared NOTHING about dolls, but my mother loved buying her dolls so she'd get some version of them, outfits, etc for birthdays and holidays. She just put them in a display case she has in her bedroom and there they sit to this day.....behind glass doors. She almost NEVER played with them or even changed their clothes. Now she did LOVE all the books and we read all of the series they had out at that time.
