We LOVE American Girl® Dolls in this house. There are more of them than I care to admit. When I was a kid, $60-$120 on a single doll was not an option. To be perfectly honest, spending that much on a doll for the recommended age ranges of 3-8+ makes my eyes very wide. I have cringed when my 7 year old brings her Bitty Baby outside and wants to send her down the slide. A $60 baby doll on the SLIDE?? Oh no no no no.
Here are some cute alternatives to the several varieties of American Girl® Dolls available for price tags that are much more palatable.
Bitty Babies are the infant AG dolls. They are super sweet, but are $60.
Amazon has these JC Toys Berenguer Boutique 15″ Soft Body Baby Doll with Open and Close Eyes for a very reasonable $24.99. There are several options with these that include accessories (pink/blue).
These Corrole dolls are just as sweet and are in the $35-40 price range.
Wellie Wishers® are adorable 14″ dolls from the AG doll brand. They are a smaller version of the traditional AG dolls with adorable faces and several cute options. They retail for $60.
These “Glitter Girls” are a cute 14″ alternative. For $20, you won’t break the budget.
Another 14″ option is these “Heart4Heart” dolls. Each has a back-story of their life’s passion. These are just under $40. A bit pricey still, but $20 less than the AG option.
There are so many choices available, from the classic BeForever, to TrulyMe, to the new Create your Own, American Girl dolls are beautiful and timeless. At $115+, they are not always in the budget!
Target has a Brand of 18″ dolls called “Our Generation.” There are tons of options + accessories available that rival American Girl’s sweetness at a fraction of the price. Dolls are $25. Click the photo below to go to Target’s site to purchase OG dolls and accessories.
Walmart carries “My Life” dolls and accessories for a very reasonable $28 per doll.
Of course, if your little is dead-set on American Girl® Brand, check them out here. They are beautiful, high-quality doll and fun to customize to look just like your beautiful American girl:
