American Girl is coming to the Bay Area! The new store will open on November 16, 2013 at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto. The new two-level 15,000-square-foot retail store features all of the American Girl products. This store is opening just in time for Chloe's birthday. I had promised her I would get her an American doll for her 5th birthday and now she can have a true experience instead of me having to order a doll online.
Not only can you shop. Girls can bring their dolls over to the store to play. They can get their hair done at the Doll Hair Salon (how cool is that?!) or enjoy lunch/dessert at the 27-seat contemporary Bistro where dolls sit in "treat seats" and have special doll-sized menus.
For crafty kids, the store will feature a "Creativi-tees" boutique, where girls can create stylish T-shirts for themselves and their dolls. Girl-friendly events and activities based on the American Girl characters and award-winning books will also be available throughout the year.
The new American Girl store is also set up for celebrations from birthdays to special occasions. Girls can have a Bistro party or opt for a deluxe celebration in a private party room where they can enjoy an organized game and craft, special food and cake, and party favors.
