For those of you who are novices, American Girl Dolls are the most classy beautiful toys that a girl can play with, and they encourage conservative clothing (aka ANTI BARBIE), active lifestyles and reading. What more could a mother want? Exactly. So the dolls are featured as historical girls. They have a girl from 1774, another from 1904, another from 1944, etc. About maybe 12 dolls in all... I didn't count. The Tag Line on the first page of the catalog reads, "What was it like to grow up in her day?" So, I read that line, turn the page, and LOW and behold- the doll I'm looking at is from the year 1974.
What? What was it like to grow up in her day? Like it's a big mystery or something. I'm sorry, but a girl can just call her aunt or ask her mother if she wants to know what it was like to grow up in the 70's. I mean, I get the tag line on the girl from 1864. You can't really just ask, and most history books aren't going to be geared toward the 8-10 year old girl. But come on, 1974?
Holy snap. I'm showing my age again, aren't I?
