Let me start off by saying that Brooke has no idea what American Girl is. She has seen the catalogs but that is it. I must say that going there was definitely worth it, even if she didn't buy a doll or own one before we went.
**Let me give a photo fail warning. Brooke once again is showing her inability to actually LOOK at the camera in any picture from this day. Sigh.
Here is Brooke on her first taxi ride. It only lasted 5 minutes as it was rush hour and we decided to just get out and walk!
Now the lunch was $24.95 a person and was totally worth it! Brooke did not have a doll so the restaurant had plenty to choose from. Here she is with her borrowed doll.
It was not crowded so she insisted my sister also have a doll next to her. They give the dolls little cups and saucers. It was adorable! The food was excellent too!
Overall it was a great time! My mom has more pics that I am waiting on (ones with me actually in them LOL). Brooke even screamed "This is the best diner ever!".
After lunch we went walking around in Times Square. This Mickey was standing in front of the Hershey Store so I thought he was part of their store. Oh of course not. After this pic he asked me for money! Jerk!
I would definitely recommend going to American Girl. It's quite impressive and I would have totally been into that when I was younger. I can't wait until she is older and wants to go and buy a doll! They even have a doll hair salon and there were little girls in there getting their dolls hair in an updo. Brooke loved watching that! It was a great day!
