How to Find American Girl Doll Deals

Are you looking for ways to find discounts on American Girl Dolls? If so here are some tips and tricks.

First know that American Girl dolls are expensive. But, their knock offs (found at Target, Walmart and Toys R US) are not comparable when it comes to how their faces look and their ability to stand on their own. For a child under age 6 there is likely reason to go with the less expensive option, but for longevity consider buying a real American Girl doll for your child (or for yourself, yes adults also collect American Girl dolls). This post contains some affiliate links, which help to keep this site going!

Where to find deals on American Girl Dolls

  1. Navy Exchange (you need a DOD ID) 
  2. Costco, especially when they have their $100 in gift cards for $80. These are hard to come by and not all Costco stores carry them. The gift cards are good online or at the stores. If you couple the 20% off when you spend all $100 with online or instore deals, then you definitely score big!
  3. Jills Steals and Deals - These come only a few times a year and if you have other things to do, it isn't necessarily a deal - why? Because you may spend 4 hours trying to check out!
  4. Ebay - many used CURRENT dolls go for less than retail and either in excellent condition or easily fixable condition. For retired dolls these often are more expensive.
  5. Amazon - but usually only on accessories and the mini dolls. For example, the MaryEllen mini doll is for under $20 on Amazon right now and the Caroline one is currently $17.60, and these normally goes for $25 and shipping is expensive through AG site.
  6. BST sites via facebook. I trust Facebook a bit more than Craigslist, where, of course you can also find them. Meet in a public place, ask to see photos and only buy from people with profiles that "seem" legit.

5 Funky Awesome Things You Didn't Know You Wanted!

Amazon is great. Plenty of things to find in the world's biggest store, right? Well,  I was checking out various cloth diaper detergent options (not for me!) when I came across lovely "related" products and realized there are so many things I had no idea people wanted or NEEDed! (If you're looking for cloth diapers I do recommend checking out Mom's Milk Boutique.)

Yes, there are things that we buy as gag gifts, but sometimes I wonder, who actually wants these things? Anyone?

5 Funky Things that make Great Gag Gifts!

First up, we all have been told to wash our hands before we eat. But, what if the food is dirty? Um, or food like product for those whole food eaters.

Now keeping on the funky agenda, I had no idea there could be that many adult, make-up wearing Hello Kitty fanatics. but there are, So apparently they need make up that shows exactly how much they love the non-cat Kitty character.

There's something for everyone. There's someone for everyone. If that's the case, please find me the match for the person interested in actually wearing this. EVEN to an ugly sweater party!

So from the lovely Christmas ugly sweaters, there's costumes. And well, this guy's endowment. Um. Yeah.

(giving you a chance to close this window in case you're at work or around your kids...

Yeah, scroll down after viewing that Amazon affiliate link and see the other related options. OH MY.
Finally, there's kid's stuff. Most things we don't need for baby. A food source, some clothing and hugs is what they really NEED. But then there's everything else.
Disposable diapers for a doll. Yes, they had these for decades, but at some point, can't we all wake up and realize DOLLs do not need disposable diapers that are more expensive than HUMAN disposable diapers? REALLY people!

There are plenty of reusable doll diapers out there. Peace. Happy shopping!
