Grandparents consider American Girl Dolls and their other products for the little girls in your life. Parents agree that American Girl is one of the best products in the country for your girls. Besides dolls of different ethnic groups, they offer e-mail cards for birthdays, parents, grandparents, travel, winter holidays, fall holidays, spring holidays, and summer holidays. Just imagine opening your e-mail site and finding your granddaughter's greeting there. A wonderful gift would be an American Girl Doll. There are different time frames from colonial times, to the present, from which you can pick your doll gift.

The American Doll Magazine offers hours of creative thinking tasks. T-shirts creations, movie bingo, better letters, a rock- on- feature. There is even a coupon offered on magaz!nes.com for a good discount for American Girl Mazagine.

Online activities include book cover maker, fairy fun, patch match, flash card maker, word search, snowman fun, fall word search, and creating wallpaper for her computer.

Innerstar University is a destination online that she can travel to. Have her look around the campus and join your granddaughter, in exploring. This could lead to a chat. Explore with her what her dreams are for the future. What types of things is she interested in. What types of courses would she like to take in college. What types of jobs or professions interest her. It will be a lot of fun. Create memories for her this way.

American Girl Dolls have many stories. Addy is escaping slavery with her mother in 1864. They are trying to find Addy father and brother who are still slaves. Josefina Montoya is a New Mexican girl. She is growing up in 1824. She is joyful that her aunt will be coming to live with her. Josefina faces many challenges. Her mother has recently passed away. She fears she will forget all the joyous things she did with her mother. She lives on a ranch. Will she continue living there? Kaya is an American Indian from the Nez Perce tribe. She experiences life in 1764. She cares for horses. She befriends a wolf. Julie sees San Francisco life in 1974. She must move to a new home and new school. Friends like Ivy Ling will be missed. She develops the hobby of saving endangered eagles. Kit and Ruthie share the hardships of the 1930's Kit's father looses his business overnight during this time. Kit decides there are more important things besides money. She has the friendship of Ruthie. The girls face many challenges together during the Great Depression. Money is very tight. This era in American History and the trials the girls face, because of it, is an interesting story. Rebecca Rubin, of Russian-Jewish parents, is discovering life in 1914. She is trying to keep family traditions alive. She welcomes a cousin to the United States.

Grandparents the American Girl Company, through their Dolls, teach American History. Read the stories of all these American Girl Dolls to your granddaughters. Let them hear what life was like in the !8th, 19th, and 20th centuries in America.
