Have you heard of American Girl Dolls?
Did you know that they have American Girl Doll Stores? Stores that are multilevel behemoths that include doll hair salons, doll hospitals, cafes for you and your doll, photography sessions for you and your doll and even doll ear piercing.
This place is real. It is located in New York City.
The miniature salon chairs slay me.
There are American Girl stores in other locations as well. My Mom had been to one in Chicago and thought that, "you just have to see this for yourself!" So when we stepped off of the Howard County Park and Recreation Department 55+ bus (yep) in NYC and she spotted the American Girl store across the street, she said we had to go. After waiting IN A LINE (I'm serious) to get into the American Girl store I got to witness firsthand what must be millions of little girls' fantasy land. I about died. The whole thing had me in stitches for a solid half hour. The place was mobbed. Someone in that marketing/creative department knows what she is doing.
