I'm from Australia and was visiting NYC in August. We were staying near 5th Avenue and by chance I kept seeing girls walking around with these big red bags with 'American Girl' on them.

You expect it to be expensive it's AG after all but what I was surprised at is the lack of friendliness and unhelpful staff.

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.
