Every young girl loves dolls and what better way to also educate them but through the dolls they love. American Girl characters have a historic background, stories associated with them, and a beautiful doll that can look just like your little angel. American Girl Place will also help you plan that special event with a celebration or even a late night at American Girl designed just for you. From the Hilton Garden Inn start out going southeast on W 28th St toward 6th Ave/ Avenue of the Americas, take the 1st left onto 6th Ave/Avenue of the Americas, turn right onto W 50th St, turn right onto 5th Ave, American Girl Place is on the left just past E 49th St.
At American Girl, we celebrate girls and all that they can be. That’s why we develop products and experiences that help girls grow up in a wholesome way, while encouraging them to enjoy girlhood through fun and enchanting play. American Girl characters past and present show girls today that they can do great things if they believe in themselves and each other. From a Native American girl living in the Northwest in 1764 to a contemporary girl who uses her strengths to turn challenges into triumphs, the characters in every story illustrate the power of determination, imagination, courage, and hope—the same spirit that inspires modern American girls. Each character’s story is told in a series of compelling books, focusing on such themes as family, school, holiday, birthday, summer, and winter adventures. Gentle life lessons throughout the stories remind girls of such lasting values as the importance of family and friends, compassion, responsibility, and forgiveness. To bring the stories to life, skilled designers have created a beautifully crafted 18-inch doll for each character, along with historically accurate clothing and accessories evoking her world and adventures. By reading the stories and playing with the dolls, girls can learn how growing up has changed—and how it has stayed the same—throughout American history.
