I am No Longer an “American Girl Fan”

Lainey at Dolls in the Heart of Dixie posted about a very serious, upsetting matter concerning American Girl.

  1. Oh wow… This is ridiculous! What is America coming to- and them targeting this toward tween and teen girls where they [AG] were supposed to be a safe environment… Is seriously uncalled for and bad.
    It’s really great of y’all taking a stand for this! I know its hard, when you love the dolls and books, but y’all are doing the right thing.
    God bless.

      Thanks so much for leaving a comment-this really made my day. 🙂
