The American Girl Store is very nice. They have stores everywhere. There is a salon and a cafe where a girl can go with her special doll. Get ready though, it is super expensive and I think that the staff could've been friendlier and more helpful.

We went with a group of friends and the girls had the most magical time. The ages of the girls in our group were 8-12.. They all had a great day. We started off with... More

Disappointed in sales help on the floor appeared disinterested to have us there. No one smiled or even acknowledged shoppers presence.It was crazy busy on a Saturday. The check out help was super friendly.

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. I thought it must be a clothing shop of some kind. I enquired to a local who pointed me in the right direction. When I walked... More

Took two girls to the AG store today for a day at package plus birthday celebration. 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. The concierge check in was lack luster at best. and then it was hours we had to wait for doll... More

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!
