If you have a little girl who loves American Girl dolls or just loves dolls in general, you might want to check out the FREE American Girl events that are taking place this month at their stores. These events are taking place at American Girl stores around the country – so make sure to check out the website to see the full schedule. I’m just going to list the events that will be taking place at the Seattle store for those who are local here in the Northwest (these are only the dates for the Seattle location – so make sure to check out the dates for your local store).
It does say that these events are open to girls ages 8 & up (except the Bitty Babies events), but I’m not sure how strict they are about those ages. Let us know if you’ve been to one of these events before & what your experience was like.
