I never knew they excited when I was little. The first time I heard about them was when my second was born. I personally could not spend that much money on a Doll. I would never let my kids touch or play with it and why have a Doll that just sits there.

I did not vote. Since there was nothing for never heard of them.

I never knew about them when I was little.  I only found out about them when I had my dd.  She has five of them, but she's now at an age where she doesn't really play with them and she definitely doesn't want any more.

My Becca just got her first for her 3rd birthday instead of a party. That is some great prices however, I want a Rebecca for my Becca and don't have the money right now and of course she wouldn't be one of the ones on sale.

I was in love with dolls as a kid. I think I finally stopped playing with them when I was about 13 (don't judge me!) My oldest sister had a bunch of the books but I never knew they had actual dolls. My favorites growing up were Gerber Babies with the shifty eyes. 

As an adult I love buying my neices american girl doll stuff. My mother is so excited to finally have granddaughters. One of the first things out of her mouth was "Oh goodie!! Now we can go to the American Girl store!!"

Yes I loved these when I was a Kid,I would get these magazines with the dolls and all those cool accesories way to much money in my opinion,I would not buy one for my DD seeing as she does not know how to take care of her toys properly and I know that if I did purchase one then the doll would not be played with the doll would just sit there,however it's nice to see they are affordable I know there are a lot of little girls out there who love these dolls.

When I was growing up American Girls were Felicity and I forgot the others. They were only in books back then.

If they existed when I was a child, I didn't know. My older girls have one each from the last time they were on sale. And my oldest earned an American Girl shopping spree through her school so she actually has two. They are superior quality dolls. My twins will get one each when they are a bit older and hopefully we'll be able to take advantage of one of these sales for them. I refuse to pay full price for them.
