[quote=Arlene]We found a doll company that my daughter loved as an alternative to getting an American Girl doll. True, it doesn’t have any of the period costuming, and it is not any type of faith based or values based product, but the dolls are pretty and my daughters love them.
the website is www.corolledolls.com
We got the Camille doll and 3 outfits for way less than the American doll would have been.
I am so glad to see another company pick up the slack for the expensive American Girl Dolls. When my youngest was younger she liked to play with her friend who had American Girl Dolls and then we discovered the Magic Attic Dolls - much less expensive, had stories to go with them.
I bought my daughter a couple of these dolls so she would then bring them with her to play dolls with her friend who had American Girl ones (given to her by a Grandma). The girls had a blast, they didn’t care that the dolls were two different brands!
Then when my daughter grew out of doll playing other companies started making them from the dolls you can get at Target to I guess the ones you can get at Wal-Mart
