American girl dolls


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!

I found a few websites for you to check out, with all products made in the US.

They have all kinds of things here--http://www.buyamericanmart.com/index.html

This site has a list of more links-- http://www.usstuff.com/

This is more of an advocate site, but you can do a search for products that will come up with a list--http://www.madeinusa.com/index.shtml

Made by a mom, this lists more companies that sell US-made. I like this one. http://www.stillmadeinusa.com/

I like this one, too. It lists tons of crafters in all kinds of categories, including toys. I bet you could find some cool things. http://www.homemadeinamerica.com/directory/

Hope that helps you a little! PS. Got the buttons today--I hadn't picked them up from the P.O. yet, since we were out of town. I love them and can't wait to use them!!!

$90 for a doll! I can't believe how expensive toys are. When the company said they do it to 'keep prices low and stay competitive read - to keep profits increasing and give nothing back to the community!
