    • Lilly replied:

      Oh she is soooo cute! I might get her!

  17. Jane replied:

    Yes S.C. you’re right I never got on here to tell everyone that.

  18. Jane replied:

    And also there will not be a stirling doll the person who said that stuff about Ruthie made it up.

  19. Julia replied:

    Yeah, when I asked American Girl why they decided to make a Stirling doll a couple months ago, they said that they weren’t planning to, but thanked me for the suggestion.

    I just found this web site and it has the coolest doll beds. I haven’t seen anything like this anywhere and they are inexpensive.

  59. rickblackmon replied:

    I am a grandpa and I had never heard of American Girl Dolls until my grand daughter, Savanah told me about them. I build websites and offer reviews, guides to products. Savanah told me “Papaw, you need to make a website about American Girl dolls. I did some research and some looking around and decided she was right. I did and wow! the competition is steep for these but I do have a website called Buy American Girl Dolls. I added a blog to the website and quite a bit of history about the American Girl dolls. I found it very interesting that each doll comes with her very own history. I guess you are never too old to learn. I am 75 now and if I don’t learn something new every day, I consider it a day wasted.
    Be Well
