My Grandpa bought me one of the original ones, Samantha. She was based in 1904 & there was ALOT of history facts in her books about back then. I LOVED that about those books for ALL of the girls, they all had history lessons in the back, even though, they made them FUN to read. I still have my doll & all the clothes that people bought to go with her. I also have her cookbook, theater stuff & her paper doll set

I got one in the late 90s and I screamed and cried, cuz I didn't like them kinda dolls! I was really mad cuz I wanted a fun doll like a barbie that I could PLAY with, as my mom considered my American Girl a collectors doll, that and I liked Addie the best, I got Samantha or something, the one who wore a Saint Lucia crown of candles, and a white nightgown and she had pioneer clothes. My mom always made me dress like her for Christmas cards, especially during the Wisconsin 150 year aniversary she made me dress up as a pioneer in a matching outfit with my doll. Now they got a Hippie doll as of 2007.

I had an American girl doll too. IT was Samantha. She is still in my closet somewhere with her books. I was more into porcelain dolls, so I didn't handle her too much. She is still in her box actually.

I used to have a subscription to the American Girl Magazine, which later evolved into "Girl's Life" and the subscription came with free copies of the American Girl dolls/accessories catalogs whenever they came out. Having also read some of the stories, I remember always wanting one of the dolls, but I never got one. They were always pricey and mail order only because there wasn't a physical store anywhere remotely close to us. Today, there's an actual store in my local mall but now that they're so close, I've outgrown them. Good to see they're still going strong. Does that magazine still exist?

I wanted the American Girl dolls and books sooooooooooo badly, but they were way, way, way too expensive for my family to buy. I couldn't even get the magazine. :( The only people I knew who got one of these were from really well-off families.

I never got an AG doll, too expensive. I almost talked my mom into it, (back when they were somewhere between 60 and 80-something dollars. Can't remember the exact number), and then I think I decided it was too much or something happened to make me decided against getting it. I didn't have grandparents who doted on me all the time, (They cared about me, but I wasn't spoiled.), so like so many other girls, I didn't recieve an AG doll through them. Yes, they are cute, but a doll is a doll. No doll should cost 100 dollars! I have come to realize (now that I'm older) that getting an AG doll is just getting a name and a label. Do I still want one? A little, but now I know better. Plus I have the internet to look up knock-off stuff that's just as nice, but cheaper. (Emily Rose doll clothes, eBay, ect.) I might be giving a forlorn Our Generation doll a new home soon to satisfy my rekindled want for an 18" doll. (Thanks eBay!) She is not AG, and that suits me just fine.

My sister and I both had these dolls. She had Kirsten and a Bitty baby. I had Samantha, Josephina and an American Girl of today. Needless to say, I liked them alot and still have mine. I read those books so much some of them are falling apart and I loved their clothes. Though getting one was special. The kind of present special where its the only thing you get. Period. Still worth it.

I thought these dolls were a mid 1990's thing but after researching it I see that they were available via mail order beginning in 1986. Interesting! I didn't know about them until I was 20-something and in college so of course I didn't buy one, but I've always thought they were so cool! If I knew about them in 1986 I would have been all over that, especially the accompanying book series!

This was the first toy I was seriously obsessed with. The AG dolls were out of our budget, so my parents made a deal with me that if I saved up half of the cost with my allowance, they would pay the other half. I got Felicity, the colonial era doll and my sister got Samantha, the Victorian one. We played with those dolls for years and mine is in the attic waiting for my little girl someday.

I always liked to look at the American girl doll catalog. I never bought the dolls, I figured the dolls and all the accessories would take up a lot of space. But it was fun imagining all the different adventures the dolls would have.
