My girls are into American Girl dolls the only catch is they do not have actual American Girl dolls my girls have American Girl doll knock offs. I refuse to pay that kind of money for a doll that will be tossed around by a 6 and 4 year old and there are several great dolls that are much more reasonably priced. If you have a little girl who is into American Girl dolls but you just can’t or won’t pay that kind of money I have great news there are lots of American Girl doll knock offs that make amazing dolls and accessories your kids will love. Here is my list of dolls, doll clothes and doll furniture that work with American Girl Dolls and their competitor.
American Girl Doll Knock Offs
- Madame Alexander, 18″ Favorite Friends Collection: These are the dolls my girls have we got them at Target several Christmas’s ago for $39.99! My girls adore these dolls and you can not tell the difference between them and American Girl dolls when they are side by side. Even some of my daughters school age friends who are very particular about only liking American Girl dolls had no idea we had knockoffs! Plus they have so many to choose form each of my girls has one that looks like them. On Amazon I have seen the various version of this doll anywhere from $39.99-53.99. Note Dollie & Me brand dolls found at Kohl’s and Macy’s are the Madame Alexander dolls.
- Our Generation Olivia 18″ Doll: another option is the Our Generation doll again this one comes in many options and is very similar to American Girl dolls although I do think they have a more distinct face that is less like American Girl Dolls. Again depending on the version I have seen these anywhere from $35 – 44.95
- KidKraft 18″ Doll: The newest American Girl knockoff doll is by Kidkraft I saw these at ABC Kid’s Expo and they are cute although I think they look more like Our Generation dolls than American Girl dolls. These are very reasonably priced at $41.00
- Kidkraft Doll Furniture: Kidkraft has several items for the 18 inch doll including KidKraft Little Doll Bunk Bed ,KidKraft Littie Doll Vanity ,KidKraft Little Doll Table and Chair Set. I saw all three of these at the ABC Kid’s Expo and was impressed by how well made they are.
- Our Generation Doll Furniture: Our Generation also makes some doll furniture that your girls are sure to love and fits all 18 inch dolls.Our Generation Scrollwork Bed For 18″ Dolls , Our Generation Light Pink Salon Chair For 18″ Dolls, Our Generation Polka Dot Armoire For 18″ Dolls
