Yesterday a friend linked to a wonderful article that was full of wonderful memories and nostalgia. The comments below it in particular were eyeopening into just how widespread the love of American Girl was (and still is).

American Girl Nostalgia
I'll never forget the birthday I pulled away the wrapping paper from a long white box and first met my Kirsten doll. It was the beginning of a long and wonderful friendship with the American Girl Company. Over the years I received four dolls, subscribed to the magazine, joined the girls club, bought most of the paperdolls, craft books and dramas, participated in one Kirsten play, and read all (and owned most) of the novels.
