My Thoughts:

As you can already tell, my girls are huge fans of their adorable Paige Doll. They love the pink pajama, but they were way more excited about the adorable, trendy outfit that they got in addition to this great doll. They love playing with their 18 inch dolls when they aren’t interested in babies. They can do more grown up things with these dolls :)….That’s what they tell me at least. I am very impressed with this great doll. I also was so pleased to see that there were adorable and affordable outfits that are available for purchase from JoAnn’s.

She comes with 1 of the three books in the series that have her navigating the post-war world of the 50’s.


My Thoughts:

My girls were absolutely thrilled when they received the amazing Maryellen Larkin. She was absolutely adorable. My girls loved her outfit- even down to the shoes :). Her hair is adorable in the ponytail and is very soft so it is easy for the girls to style her hair in different styles. The outfit that she is wearing is adorable on her as well as my daughter ;). The additional outfits that are available for Maryellen are also absolutely perfect for the era.

My girls love playing with Maryellen and have a hard time being willing to take turns with her, even though they know that they have to.

American Girl dolls are our favorite. They are great dolls that are made to last many years into the future, and they are made extremely well. Your child can play with the doll daily, it doesn’t need to just sit on the shelf and look pretty.



If you would like to purchase the Maryellen doll, you only have a few more days to purchase her before the year is over. However, there are many other great products that American Girl has to offer. I am sure that any little girl in your life would be excited to open an American Girl doll on Christmas morning. Head on over to the American Girl website to find the right item for you!

First, their hair can be washed, styled (even with a curling iron or blow dryer on low setting!) and brushed just like their owner’s hair!
