I’ve always been slightly smitten with the American Girl Doll minis, both because the price is less horrifying than the full-size dolls and because anything miniaturized is automatically cuter. (And they come with a 3″ hardcover book, too!) Heh. Still, at $22/pop plus shipping from American Girl, they’re not exactly cheap.
Enter Amazon: They have a slew of miniature AG options for $15 or less, plus they’re eligible for free shipping. Bargain-basement cheap? No. A great deal over buying direct from American Girl? Heck yes.
Check out your options:
Molly is just $12.39.
Ruthie Smithens is just $13.46.
Rebecca, Felicity, and Nellie are just $14.93 each.
And finally, Elizabeth and Julie are also just $14.93 each, but these two are pre-orders and you wouldn’t have them in time for, say, Easter baskets.
Of course, if you had a little girl who’s been begging for a real American Girl doll and you buy her a mini instead, that’s kind of mean, I guess. But it’s also exactly the sort of thing I would do. Heh.
