I should have been in American Girl Place a couple of years earlier, but it was sort of fun at this age as well, though it was a very posh experience... :)

There are all kinds of dolls there,a huge collection of them. There are dolls with diferent names with story-books. Different dolls also come from different historical eras og the US.

Kit for instance is from the time of the Great Depression. She represents the value of hard work and the idea of being cheerful even in bad periods of our lives. And there are very many others.

The only problem with the moral teaching is that the dolls cost about $120, so their wisdom cannot get to everyone...
