What exactly is American Girl? you ask. Well, you clearly are not a 12-year-old female. An American Girl doll is 18” tall, costs $100 (!!!!), gets $30 hairdos and $12 facials. A doll that gets a facial. Terrific.
There are American Girl stores where you can buy not only the dolls but the accessories, the facials, and also sit down for a bite to eat (presumably real). A throng of thousands is expected to greet the opening of the new, 23,000-square foot, two-story store in Tysons, according to this story in Capital Business.
But that throng may be diminished considerably if they head to Tysons Corner in Washington, D.C.
