Have you seen the mini AGs? They are adorable. If you think you can get away with a mini (or three) instead of a full-sized doll, this Christmas, you should hightail it over to Overstock: they have the American Girl Minis for a third less than the AG store.
(Psssst… want ’em? The coupon I posted on Friday—which was supposed to end at the end of the month—seems to still be working. Click through the doll link to add whatever you want to your cart, then click here to activate your coupon and check out.)
