Happy Birthday to Meeee! My Visit to the American Girl Store

Beach Cabanna Lights up,and is only available in stores!
This year I decided to celebrate my birthday for the entire year. This has got to be the coolest idea I have come up with yet. So for the fourth week of May, I decided to vist the American Girl store in Houston, Tx. We visited the bistro, which I must tell you is beautifully decorated in pinks, black and white( my favorite colors). FYI please remember to RSVP or you will NOT get to eat that day! I also decided to get a personal shopper for this visit because I had a few guest with me that I wanted to introduce the hobby to. Thank you, Ms La Wren and Kennedy! The personal shopper did an excellent job of introducing the girls to the main historical characters and answering any questions. We had time to take pictures and she welcomed the girls to touch any of the dolls. Since I already knew what I was there for.... Cecile!!! I thought this trip would be simple and easy but, I found myself being drawn in by the many accessories and beautiful outfis for the dolls. Myself and Kennedy decided to stay and do arts and crafts, which I think was very fun, because it was a needlepoint activity which many young people know nothing about today. The arts and crafts table was very crowded and full of energy! My advice would be to arrive early! I am in awe of the beach cabanna and how the beautiful bright colors are on brown skin! My next purchase is my first Inner Star doll and the beach cabanna.. I also want a cello and a bike and a trundle bed lol. Yes I felt just like a kid in a candy store. Over all I would rate this visit about a 7 out of 10. Special thanks to Nancy Vigil my personal shopper!


  1. Thanks for sharing your experience and congrats on Cecilé Ray. I purchased one for my niece a couple of years ago. I have two of the mini dolls.

    Why was your visit rated a 7 out of 10? What would you have liked to be different about your visit?


    1. Sis, I had a great time but there where a few things that could have been better.The craft table was surround by 17 girls and we all had to stand and do the crafts....I felt it was rushed and chaotic ..there should have been a room with several tables and chairs.Also the young lady in the bistro was unable to give me a time frame for my wait(you need to rsvp a few days ahead).I did enjoy my personal shopper and was able to connect with her so If I need anything she will hold items for me and honor internet prices.
