Just spent two hours (But really closer to an hour. But really closer to 45 minutes) on the American Girl doll site. Daniel’s little sister Alydia is one of my FAVORITE PEOPLE EVER. Her birthday is next week and I want to get her something she’ll really like. She has a Molly doll that she is obsessed with, so I figured I’d get her some sort of American Girl accessory-deal. Alright, now that I’ve explained why I was on that website for so long (or, you know, at all), I want to explain the thoughts I had while on it:
- Apparently Molly has a British friend named Emily now? I don’t know why I linked to that as if anyone would ever take the time to click that or care. Regardless, this is unfortunate because: 1. I always assumed Molly was friendless, which, duh, is why I loved her so much. 2. You know Emily from England thinks she’s the hottest thing in the world with her accent and 20/20 vision and treats Molly like complete trash. Friendship? More like power struggleship.
- You can get mini-American Girl dolls for $24 in case you’re interested in being the unpopular girl at school whose parents don’t love her enough to pay $124 for a goddman doll.
- All of Molly’s outfits involve glasses, except for “Molly’s Tap Outfit.” She also takes her braids out for this outfit and looks great, but it makes zero sense. Wouldn’t she need her glasses more if she’s going to be on a stage? Or does it not matter as long as she knows her dance moves?
- Molly gets these disgusting red striped pajamas, while Emily gets a pink robe with white lace detailing and pink fluffy slippers (They are $22! Steal!). Molly goes barefoot like some kind barbarian.
- Literally everything is so expensive. I cannot believe my parents bought me American Girl dolls and paid for all their ridiculous accessories. I ultimately got two books for Alydia, so I guess I’m now that person who gives books to kids and tries to play it off like it’s a great gift.
