I have always had a love affair with dolls. They have just always given me joy throughout the years, even till this day. Growing up, I did not see a lot of dolls that looked like me and especially not in my skin tone. That’s one of the reasons why I LOVE and ADORE American Girl today because they have a variety of dolls for all little girls in lots of shades and hair textures. From light to dark skin, curly hair to straight, they have something for your little girl or a loved one. My daughter Dootie still has her huge collection of these dolls too.
My friend/photographer Paras Griffin has a goddaughter by the name of Elise Martez and he gave her, her first American Girl doll and she was too elated. He shared a few photos with me to post. I hinted early on that this would be a great gift idea for her. In her neighborhood, she was the talk of the town over the weekend because all her neighbors who has one, said she is now an official member of the “doll club” lol. I feel sorry for you Paras because you have NO idea what you have started lol. There is an American Girl store in Alpharetta, Ga(North Point Mall) and they stay very busy! Oh my Paras, you’re in deep trouble now! Check out a few snaps of Elise with her new Truly Me doll…
Love how they are matching, uber cute right?
