I was pleasantly surprised by the great attention to detail that this store makes to ensure that girls have a wonderful experience. From the hospital to the hair salon my daughter enjoyed every part of it. Of course, this will only be a once a year visit but one that will create great Mommy-n-Me memories!

I am a male business owner and the First rule of business is consistency, I drove in from Canada for my daughter's birthday, it was her only wish. The store is really cool, but the positive experience stopped there. For every helpful person there was a rude one. If you go to the third floor stay away from the male... More

A dream come true for American Girl owners! I think it would be impossible to walk out of the store without spending a cent! I went with my grand daughter who had been there several times before. Three floors of amazement!

We were holidaying in New York in January this year and had the opportunity of having lunch with my daughter, and her new doll Belle. Having come all the way from Australia it was a very special outing for my 9 year old daughter and myself. The food was of excellent quality and the quantity very generous. My daughter still... More

The place was mobbed. You could barely walk through without a child or parent bumping into you. Lines were through the store. We sent the dad's to stand in line whilst shopping for the required Christmas gifts -- many things were no longer available and salespeople were frantic. Not the time to be looking! We grabbed what we could and... More

My daughter was nagging me for ages before I flew to New York to go to American Girl and get her her own doll. Busy shop and got the doll she wanted but cannot see why they are so popuilar when Barbie is so much cheaper and esier to get hold of. Maybe its just clever marketing who knows.

On a recent day trip to NYC from NJ, we made it a point to stop at AGP. My daughter received several AG gift cards which helped lessen the sting at the register. As always, the corner of AGP is packed w/ ppl. After getting past that corner, there was a short line to get in. Once in the store,... More
