To have so many choices under one roof and have the staff be so knowledgeable about their product is a breath of fresh air. Little ladies will be in awe and can make their special doll that much more their own. Great location on fifth!

Our family enjoyed visiting this shop, although it does seem a tad expensive. Can't imagine our 9-yr old daughter buying completely into the philosophy, though it was great fun finding out which doll most resembles her.

took my daughter here to get her birtthday present as she has always wanted one of these dolls. They are ridiculously expensive but worth it when i saw the pure joy and excitement on her face. Large store with good selection of dolls and accessories.

Fabulous, well presented store featuring the entire American Girl lineup. Worth the detour to visit. Prices, as expected, on the high side, but a full selection of toys, accessories and even some kids clothing. Excellemt, friendly service.

Recommend the Saturday morning event combined with brunch (both require reservations) based on overall price (goody bags) and ability to wander around the store relatively peacefully. Cafe was sensitive to kids with allergies.

It has been quiet a while for my daughter begging me to take her to the store in NYC. We do have one in Miami and you can not even compare it with the 3 floors that they have in Manhattan. You can find whatever you want from dolls, to baby dolls, furniture and clothes...go prepare to spend a lot... More

They had been waiting for it, and walking up fifth avenue and seeing the look on their face when they saw the red awnings was priceless, we bought the dolls for them when we passed through there in 2010, since the the dolls had not been away from them, so much so we had to take them from Australia on...

Had my daughters 9th birthday here last year and we are planning a trip again this year too. The shopping is fun but the party room was the best experience. The food was outstanding!! I was not expecting this type of quality or taste or service. Just out of this world and for a year have been craving it again.... More

We try to go to AG place at least once a year and each time I'm in awww of this massive doll store! if you get a chance go for lunch the prices are comparable to the TGIfridays across the street only the food is a lot better. everything is very clean and with 3 floors you never feel cramped.

First trip here for our 9 year old and she was in heaven! It isn't cheap but the dolls are lovely and the outfits are not unreasonable. The choice is a little overwhelming though - took us 4 trips to get everything!! Beware the hair salon - we paid $20 for the style of the month and it was lovely... More
