American Girl--There's a New Kid on the Block


Well, move over American Girl, there's a new gal in town. In London, that is. A new shop featuring dolls and clothing, very much along the line of the successful American Girl company, has opened shop in Westfield Mall.


Yes, you too can make a match made in heaven with your little sweetheart and her own new doll which might even look a bit like her!


Situated in a posh shop in the busy Westfield Mall, the store is so much fun to browse, even if it makes you want to borrow a little girl to accompany you.


Currently, there are 7 dolls to choose from, in a range of different skin tones, eye color, hair color and styles.  Meet Amy, Bella, Grace, Lulu, Olivia, Pippa (of course) and Zoe.


May I introduce Amy?




I think this is Olivia--she didn't have her name tag. I think she looks a lot like another little girl at our church. Any of you church gals see a resemblance?


Here's Olivia again in her My London Girl shirt and hoodie.


Another little brunette--maybe Amy again, with her curly hair?


Definitely sweet Grace.


My guess is Lulu


and curly hair Bella.


Plenty of matching party dresses for little girls, size 3-12, and their dolls.


How would one choose?


Handbags, shoes and accessories too.


And to pretend, a Marie Antoinette dress!!
It's calling my pocketbook!


Along with plenty other fairy and ballet ensembles.


Of course, every little girl and her doll needs party goods and frivolities.


And here's my favorite of all--the coat that is. Isn't this adorable? The website here says a sale is going on. Time to do a little shopping--maybe there's one left with a cheaper more special price tag just for one special American Girl I happen to adore!

  1. Hmmm...I think the American Girl dolls are prettier. However, I do like the mouth on the doll in the red coat. I wonder if the AG doll clothes fit these dolls as well? Have fun shopping!!

  3. I LOVED EVERYONE OF THEM and then????? I see this RED COAT. I SAID, "THIS IS IT!!!" and I see that you too dearest, can see the CHARM in this coat and hat! I am a little coat lover. My momma made me the most DARLING blue coat when I was a child. In my valentine card set that I sold out, the little girl on the cover is wearing a red beret and a little blue coat. That is me. Oh how I wish I still had that coat- lined and all!

    SWEET POST and thank you for peeking into my Etsy shop! Anita

  5. Hi Debi,
    This post tugged at my heart. My own daughter had a few American Girl dolls, and I am keeping them for the grand daughter I hope to have someday! As for that red coat!!!...I am with you and Anita! I would wear it myself!!!!!
    Someday, when you have a minute, could you email me, please? I have a question to ask you and I can't email from blogs. It's weird. Thanks :)
    xx dawne

  6. Hopefully one day I'll have a little girl to buy dolls for. For now, Super Heros, cars, blocks, and balls are the order of the day.

  9. I enjoyed looking at the many wall paintings that you have done. Not being very handy with a paintbrush, even though I know what I like in the way of art, I took the easier option to order this canvas print from the site wahooart.com .
    It’s an unusual work called Forest music 1, by Remedios Varo Uranga, a Spanish-Mexican woman artist.
