Apparently American girl dolls are not made in America. How much sense does that make? I have to say that I'm not surprised. I found this out after calling the customer service # today. They do this to keep prices low and competitive. I'm sorry, but to me 90$ for a doll is not "low" and "competitive". I love the doll we got our daughter last year, but it looks like we'll be making the outfits for her this year!
