Hello and Merry Christmas to you all!

I bought my 7 year old daughter an American Girl doll and a matching pajama outfit for her and her doll for Christmas. She is very responsible and will take care of , I'm sure.

The question is for my 4 year old. I don't want to invest in an American Girl doll for her just yet but she loves dolls also. I was wondering if any of you knew of a doll/clothing set that she could dress like a doll too. I will invest in an American Girl doll for her when she is older but not yet and I don't want her to be disappointed when she sees my other daughter get her doll. They both just love dolls!!! My dream has come true with my 2 little girls for I too loved dolls!!!!! hahahaha

What can I do next?

I used to see nightgowns with matching gowns for barbie dolls, you might look for one of those. Walmart used to carry them or you could look online.

I saw this dolls at Target the other day and I thought they are really cute.

I do not think they have extra clothes but at Target's website I found two other dolls that looks like they do have clothes "Our generation Dolls" and "Terrie Lee"

When I was at Dillards the other day at the Fort Bend Mall, I saw these little dress sets that were a dress for the girl and then a smaller doll sized version. You could do something like that for dolls she already has, or get a new doll too.

Have you considered an American Girl Bitty Baby doll? I'm getting one for my granddaughter who is 2 1/2. They have several "same-as" outfits there, too. The dolls have no hair, so they can't do anything major to the hair. Just a thought.

Buy her a nice doll and get a cute outfit from a store that has matchy clothes in toddler and baby sizes.(like how you would dress siblings for a matching picture).

My daughter and niece have alot of the American doll collections. Yes I don't blame you on the too young thing. My niece started getting started on her collection I guess about 4 and my daughter was 5 they didnt mess theirs up. They are both teenagers now and still have all their things. I saw matching clothes sets at the Learning Express. They even had some of the American doll collection there as well. The books too. Right next to where they had those they had some clothes sets for children and their dolls not as expensive as the American doll sets. Also you can buy patterns from McCalls and Simplicity that have patterns for children and their dolls. If you don't sew I'm sure you'll find a mom who sews from one of the ladies here that will do it at a reasonable price. Good luck

They have a doll called my generation, to me they look like american girl dolls. I think they are pretty cool, you can get clothes and other things to go with them. They run about $40 a piece. But I would go look into those. Your four year old won't know the difference.

Some Christian stores such as Family Christian Stores carry a line of American Girl type products. Also, www.visionforum.com has some little girl/doll outfits that are alike (also similar to AG.)

I don't know of a store, but a lot of baby clothes will fit the larger dolls. Why not pick something easy? Like a black pair of pants and white top with a black hairband? Even if you can't find pants to fit the doll you can find black tights for it and your daughter would match.

Bitty Baby from Am Girl is a good choice for the younger ones,too and there may be matching clothes for it.
