Working at Miami’s outside mall in Pinecrest, The Falls, I actually got to experience the whole whirlwind of teens and young girls running around with excitement when this grand opening, which lasted two days (Saturday and Sunday), occurred. American Girl launched back in 1986 and with popular demand, they opened its 14th store this month. Located in the east end near Bloomingdales, the 16,000 sq. foot venue sends the young girls into a journey of history and contemporary dolls. The dolls range from the ages of 9-11 and are from a variety of ethnicities focused on various periods throughout American history. Along with books on the dolls, doll outfits, accessories,and Dress Like Your Doll clothing, the store has a Doll Hair Salon(with over 100 different hairstyles), a Doll Hospital/Dentist, a private party room and even a little Bistro for their hungry American Girl shoppers.
