Thank you American Girl for providing us with a Complimentary visit to the Spa and Bistro. All opinions are 100% our own.
My girls are at the age where they think I am great so I try to take advantage of this whenever I can! Since it is so important nowadays to grow and nurture that mother-daughter bond I am always looking for great things to do with my girls! My daughters are into everything American Girl right now and love making a trip to visit the American Girl Retail store. We are lucky to live in Dallas and be near the store so we can visit whenever we want. I try to reserve our visits for special days or celebrations like birthdays or other milestones but today we decided to visit for a good ole-fashioned Mommy- Daughter day!
The American Girl Store Dallas
With almost 20 retail locations, you are sure to find one near you! Going to an American Girl Store is truly like entering a world like no other and we are so lucky to have one close to us in Dallas! I love that we get the opportunity to spend time together creating those lifelong memories that they will never forget!
Walking around the store is so fun because all the dolls are on display so you can actually touch them and play with the accessories that go with them. You will see super cool furniture sets, clothing, books and even the Bitty Babies and Wellie Wishers have their own sections as well.
Dine at American Girl
Memories of my childhood involving going out to eat with my own mother! The American Girl Store is not just a retail store but also features dining at its very own Bistro! Think pink and think girl-friendly cuisine and seats designed for dolls to also join in the fun.
The food is actually really really good and reasonably priced! You will not leave hungry and you will also leave with several take home goodies like doll-sized plates and hair accessories for your own little girl. Make sure to get the cotton candy milkshake and have fun playing the Q & A games they provide while waiting for your food!!
American Girl Doll Salon
Every girl needs their hair and nails done right! My daughters love to get pampered and get makeovers so it is only fair that their American Girl dolls get one too! Each American Girl store has a salon where not only your daughter, but their girls too, can choose from several hair, nails, and pampering options.
We always get to pick out our dolls new look and add lots of sparkle too at the Doll Hair Salon! I love hearing them talk weeks later about their trip to the salon and how much fun we all had together! It also helps that our Dallas location has the best store employees ever who always have a smile and are ready to help!
Play with Purpose
Talking to my girls about life and life lessons can sometimes easily be done through “play” because they are relaxed and open up differently to me than if they feel pressured to talk. I always use our Mommy-Daughter days to teach and instill strong character and values in my daughters. Going to the American Girl store is a great way to do this because each doll has a story to tell and is a good role model to a young girl!
We talk about each girl(doll) and her past, present and decisions she has made. They think they are “playing” but I know that I am teaching and showing them what it means to be a girl of strong character—confident and loyal, courageous and kind.
Thanks American Girl Dallas for a great Mommy-Daughter Day as always!
