At what age do girls start liking American Girl Dolls?

Ok, mine is still a baby but I can't wait until she is old enough so we can go to the American GIrl Bistro for Tea! LOL

  • Depends on the girl... I keep waiting for my girls to get interested in dolls but at 5.5 and 3 neither of them could care less about dolls! I loved my dolls growing up, I don't know why those girls won't get with the program! LOL!

  • I'm pretty sure my oldest started reading the books when she was 3rd to 4th grade. I tried to have my 8 year old read a Josephina book but she wasn't interested. All little girls love dolls and you could read her the stories so I wouldn't say that they had to be a certain age. Have fun!

  • They are designed for 8 years and up. They have a lot of little pieces and they aren't inexpensive dolls. That being said, I got my daughter one when she was 6. My MIL sews and has made lot of matching outfits for daughter and doll that she loves!

  • I liked them at age 5. My girls are 8, 6.5, 4.5, and are showing no interest.

  • I'm 23 and I want an American Girl Doll! LOL I never got one when I was younger, even though I had all the books and stuff. They're pretty expensive. I'd say maybe 5-10 is when they would like them.

  • My daughter never liked dolls of any kind. I'm guessing 4 or 5 is about the time a girl would start liking them if she was going to like them....maybe earlier for the babydoll type.
