Everyone always suspected that American girl dolls are made in the U.S.A, but no, they are actually made in China! If you look on the back of a box, or your doll it says made in China. Here is a little video that talks about it, and interviews a couple people. They asked if it bothers the parents that they are made in China, the parents said no, but they also said that they will continue to buy them.
I think that American girl dolls should be made in America, because they are American girl dolls. Although usually I forget that they are made in China. It does bother me a lot.
Here is a picture of Mia, when she was on the Oprah show, on her book cover, and a poster.
If you missed the Oprah show on Mia, here is the part where they show her. It stops a lot but, I liked it.
Has anybody ever wondered why American girl dolls are so expensive, well if you have read this to find out!
First of all, although American girl doll clothes are not made very well, the actual doll is.
Which means that a lot of work goes into making them, and that takes people; and people want to get paid. Therefore, since American girl needs to pay all these people they need the money, and so they get their money from the sale of the dolls, and they also need to make some money themselves.
Some jobs American girl needs to make the dolls are the face sculptor, the designer ofthe body, the attachment of the arms and legs, and the placement of the eyes and ears.
In conclusion American girl dolls are very expensive because they are well made and the company needs to pay the people to work.
