The new American Girl store opens up it's first Bay Area location this weekend at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto. (They call it their San Francisco location.) Find out all the opening weekend events in this post and on the the store page. Chloe and I had a wonderful experience in this grand store that is two levels and features a doll hair salon and Bistro where you can dine with your doll. The highlight of our experience was being one of the first customers for the Bistro. Chloe got a loner doll to use since we didn't have one and it was so fun to see her eat and give her doll some tea to drink too. We couldn't leave empty handed of course and Chloe got her own American Doll for her upcoming 5th birthday.
The attention to detail for all the dolls and tiny accessories are simply a sight to see. Oh and can we talk hair? I love how high quality the hair is. Now I know why these dolls are so pricy. One important tip: If you are buying a new doll, make sure you buy one of their hair brushes to maintain it's good quality.
If you are making a visit to the store, you can book dining reservations for the new Bistro online.
