If you were a parent or a child in the last thirty years, you're likely familiar with American Girl dolls. The company is most famous for its line of historical characters, each with her own personality, plot and line of tiny, meticulously researched and recreated accessories (see, for example,
The historical and modern dolls are intended for ages 8 and up, with the baby dolls meant for those under 5 years old. What about those tender little kiddos between 5 and 8? American Girl will now be entertaining them with a brand new line, the WellieWishers.
Aside from their age focus, the line has a few other distinguishing details that separates it from the American Girl dolls of the past. The characters are all wearing rubber wellie boots (hence the name) and love playing outside; their books have prominent outdoors settings and one of the accessories is their little playhouse. The plots impart the importance of "stand[ing] in another person's wellies," as Dickson puts it.
There is lots of accessories to go with the 18" doll, my favorite is the spa station foot bath one. Although the price doesnt fit all income levels.
the dolls are great! they have many from historical times as well as ones you can customize to look just like whoever you want! the clothes are a bit pricey and so are the dolls, but i love them and so do the kids!
American girls are high quality and provide hours of play. There are so many cute outfits and accessories you can purchase for your doll as well. The only con is the price. I think they should cost $50-$75 not $115.
Beautiful Dolls that can be customized and selected to resemble your daughter's colouring. The can purchase extra clothing and accessories. A real collector's item that can be treasured for years to come.
