American Girl Coming to Ross Park Mall + Lea doll giveaway!

I don't know about you, but I loved growing up reading American Girl books and seeing the accompanying dolls! I love that this company has continued its course long enough for my own daughters to enjoy the same tradition. My girls have recently discovered American Girl and they are big fans. :) They LOVE getting the catalog in the mail and circling all their favorites (girls can dream, right?!)



I was pretty excited to hear that Pittsburgh is getting a pop-up American Girl at store at Ross Park Mall this fall!  It opens this Saturday, September 17, and will remain open through January 2017. 

The pop-up store will be featuring the newly release Wellie Wishers, as well as Lea, Girl of the Year.  






American Girl, a family favorite retailer of beloved dolls, offers an inspiring world of experiences and entertainment in its retail stores. The pop-up location will feature an assortment of the popular American Girl dolls, books and accessories, along with the signature Doll Hair Salon.




“We are beyond excited to welcome the only American Girl store in Pittsburgh,” said Lisa Earl, Mall Manager of Ross Park Mall. “The unique experiences available inside an American Girl store are something we can’t wait to share with our shoppers and their families.” 

American Girl will be located on the Upper Level, near Sears.

I love  how much history can be learned through each special story. You can also find teacher/parent guides on their website to talk through various situations that happen in each girl's life. 



American Girl’s mission is to fuel belonging and connection among girls, a goal that has already earned the loyalty of millions and the praise and trust of their parents and educators. For more information about American Girl, please visit www.americangirl.com.

American girl is proud to feature one of the most inclusive and diverse selections of dolls today.  From a wide range of skin colors, those facing hair loss because of illness, hearing aids, arm braces, a wheelchair + much more, you can find the perfect doll to fit each girl's life situation. 



VERY EXCITING GIVEAWAY.....we have doll of the year, LEA, to give away to one lucky winner! 


ONE stipulation (sorry out-of-towners!!), but winner must be able to pick it up at the American Girl store at Ross Park Mall. 


Get ready to plan your girls shopping trip! Stop by this Saturday for their Grand Opening which will include giveaways, special events + more!

My girls & I have always enjoyed the kind spirit & good heart of the American girl dolls & would love to win the new Lea giveaway, as 'Santa's" budget has been too limited for us to purchase any American dolls in the past. My own small Lia ( pronounced Lea) would be overjoyed to recieve her own Lea/Leigha/Lia/Leah ,thank you for this opportunity to enter.

My oldest daughter fell in love with American girl dolls years ago and I remember searching for the one she really wanted (felicity was retired). Now my younger daughter loves them too and has been waiting for her own, I think Melody is going to be the new favorite in our house

I have always loved looking at the American Girl magazines with my sister's, but none of us ever had the chance to own one of the dolls. I would love for my daughter to experience playing with one!

My grand-daughter, Kairi, eats, sleeps and breathes American Girl. She has a couple and they are her go to dolls. I don't think she has a favorite because she loves them all and would like to include Lea into her AG doll family.

Steph said...

My daughter doesn't have a favorite yet, but we both love that you can create the Truly Me dolls to look like you!!

My daughter has a Bitty Baby doll that she loves and is asking for one of the bigger American Girl Dolls for Christmas. Unfortunately she may receive a Target knock-off. But she's only 5, so either way I know she'll be happy!
