@couawilou: Cabbage Patch Kids!

@Aure: I swear I owned that jacket on the left

My favorite pic ever (with my uncle)

With Samantha (I must be 7)

Chilling on the swingset, I think that was my favorite outfit at the time. My mom was ironing my leggins a few weeks later (WHY?) and burnt the lace. I was so mad at her

@hilsy85: I had Samantha, Kirsten, Felicity, Josephina and one that looked like me. Yeah… my parents spent a LOT of money on American Girl stuff. But Samantha will always hold a special place in my heart.

@LGenz: I loved that jacket. As I said, fabulous 90’s fashions. My sister looks straight out of 1940s London, which I think is almost as awesome as my jacket.

@LGenz: I loved Samantha too!!

We had the all the dolls that came out when we were kids (I think there are more now?) but hardly any of the official clothes. They would have had to wear generic baby doll clothes so we never changed them out of the pretty outfits they came in – you know, to preserve their integrity.

My sister and I had to read a girl’s entire series before getting each doll. I think my sister technically “earned” Molly and I “earned” the rest. I now blame my parents for turning me into an English major by instilling in me the false hope that I could read in exchange for the things I really wanted in life. Ha.

@MrsRuby: WHAT? I guess they were more expensive in the 80s… they’ve been $90 forever.

I work near the American Girl store and there are always little girls crying around there. I don’t understand why you would take a 7 yr old in there and not buy them something

@twodoghouse: We actually found out about the dolls because I borrowed the first Samantha book from the library and there was a tag in the back of the book that was like “order the catalog”. The books were one of my favorite parts.

No one ever wanted Molly lol.

@hilsy85: hahaha thanks! It was my form of a perm, since a real perm burned my hair off…. my mom tried… mutliple times… I suppose she never wanted a daughter with straight hair! LOL
