Kids tell us why they love American Girl Place (slide show)

We spent the afternoon at American Girl Place on Fifth Avenue and asked little visitors about their favorite part of the store!


For many little girls, taking a trip to American Girl Place on Fifth Avenue is like a dream come true—there's dolls to look at (and hopefully buy!), tea to be had and photos to be taken. We spent the afternoon at the popular shop and chatted with little visitors about their favorite part of American Girl Place. Scroll through our slide show, below, to hear with they had to say.
