Our Generation Dolls and Accessories - Should I Buy?
My quick answer is YES! Why are Our Generation dolls better than American Girl dolls? My girls, 4 and almost 3, have older girl cousins, 9- and 7-years old, who have a few American Girl Dolls. If you don't know what these are, they are a line of dolls and accessories based on pre-teen girl characters from various periods of American history. My daughters, needless to say, have been begging me for their own American Girl dolls, but they cost around $100 and up, and that's just for the doll! That's the first reason why to buy Our Generation Dolls instead.
I recently discovered the Our Generation Dolls and and accessories (by Battat). It's a great line of dolls that look just like the more expensive version and are the same size. They're 18 inches tall and you can get outfits and accessories galore. Some of the accessories include doll beds, horses that the dolls fit on to "ride", salon chairs, sleep over party sets and much more. Our Generation dolls don't differ much from American Girl dolls except that they cost a fraction of the price, allowing many to also afford some of the great doll accessories - and that's why they are better!
This line of dolls is perfect for those girls wanting dolls that look more like little girls rather than babies. Our Generation dolls and accessories can be found at Target and at Amazon. What you see here is just a sampling of what's available. Thanks for stopping by - I hope your kids enjoy these dolls as much as mine have!
Our Generation Regular and Deluxe Dolls
The selection of dolls is quite large. All Our Generation Dolls dolls are 18" high and poseable. The regular dolls come with one complete outfit. The Deluxe with Storybook dolls come complete with a couple of great outfits, several accessories, plus each doll is featured in her very own story book! As you read along in the included storybook, you discover how all of the included accessories and clothing that came with your doll are used in the book.
Little girls love to have dolls that look like themselves, so you'll find that the line includes many different combinations of hair and eye color to allow you to choose your favorite look, or choose one that resembles your child.
Our Generation Accessories:
There is a vast array of accessories available for the Our Generation dolls; everything from bathtubs to extra outfits, horses to scooters, and a trunk to store a lot of it in! Want to know what my girls are getting? I'm getting them each a doll and the sleep over party set. They'll also be getting the beds, scooters, horses, and salon chairs from different family members for the holidays. I can't wait to see their cheery faces when they unwrap these great gifts!! Here are just a couple examples of available accessories you can find at Amazon...
