A Visit to American Girl Place New York City

Back in November, we took my niece on a trip to New York City to celebrate her 13th birthday.  While we were there, I had a chance to pop into AG Place NYC (which is in a new location while the original is under construction).  I thought I'd share some of my photos from that visit.
The historical line, including archived dolls.



Outfits and books for currently available historical dolls.


Nanea's hula set.

Kit's furniture.

Rebecca's Hanukkah display.

Josefina was behind glass, so there's some glare here.

Mary-Ellen's diner set.

Melody and Julie

Post-shopping. ;)
All of these photos were taken on the lower floor with the historical dolls. I would have liked to have taken some photos of the modern dolls on the ground floor, but it was much too crowded for any of those to have turned out (the Black Friday Sale was happening that weekend, so it was packed).

I hope you enjoyed joining me on my trip! :)

  1. Thank you for the virtual tour :-). The dolls are very pretty, but the accessories are so impressive. The desk with the typewriter is something I would love to have! The fifties diner is also very cute :-). And what is in the bag I wonder... ;-)

  2. Hello jSarie,
    Great pictures. The dolls are great, but the accessories and furniture are what really impress me.
    Big hug

    1. Thanks, Giac.

      The furniture are my favourites to look at as well. I almost wished I'd had more room to take things home!

  3. It looks like it was a fun trip! Are we going to see what you bought from the trip, or have you already shared it? It's too bad they had to change Josefina's Christmas dress. It's not nearly as period accurate anymore, although that could be said about a lot of the changes they've made.

    When my daughters were younger, Mr. BTEG spent about seven months working as a consultant in Chicago. The girls and I went out several times to stay with him for a week or so, and so we got to visit the American Girl Place there several times. My youngest was still into Bitty Baby then; she could spend hours in the part of the store where the Bitty Baby stuff was for sale.

    1. They have quite the line up now. It's a little 20th century heavy for my tastes, but it's still great to see. :)

  5. It's always nice to visit an American Girl Doll store. They look so inviting for kids and adults. You just want to go in and touch everything. It's been a while since I've been to one. I didn't realize how big the historical section has grown. Thanks for sharing:)

  6. American Girls are those big dolls aren't they? MSD-ish size? I've never seen one in person. Just those Journey Girls that are sold locally in our toy stores. They have some interesting fashion.And I love the furniture made for them. I wonder if they would work for MSD ...

    1. They're about MSD height, but much thicker. Some of the smaller accessories work with MSDs, but a lot of the furniture is actually big enough for EIDs!

      Actually maybe I'll do a comparison post one of these days. Thanks for the idea! :)
