American Girl Bitty Baby for Baby's First Christmas



I have a huge obsession with dolls. A very HUGE obsession and I own quite a lot of them. There are so many advantages or benefits of playing with dolls. I can tell you that I learned my body parts from a doll that I received last year. I also learned how to take on and off clothing by using a doll as well. My coordination skills are excellent thanks to role playing with dolls. I've had tea with my dolls, taken my dolls for walks and even given a few of my dolls baths. As a matter of fact I will tell you that your little one is never too young to play with dolls. They are even great for boys too. They just call them by a different name (action figures). I remember clearly when I received my very first doll. It was Christmas and I received a Bitty Baby from American Girl for my very first Christmas. At the time I wasn't too interested but I can tell you that changed very quickly. My "beebee" as I called her became my very best friend and has a special place on my bed. Recently mommy and I was afforded the chance to work with American Girl and I was sent another Bitty Baby. She will not replace my first "beebee" but I can guarantee that she will be loved just as much. I recently had a lot of fun shopping at the American Girl store and I want to share my experience with you.
My Very First Christmas (age 11 months) with my Bitty Baby
If you have never been to an American Girl store before then you are definitely missing out. My store is about 45 minutes away but mommy loves going there because it's located at a very big mall and mommy just loves to shop. Shopping is what mommy does best! Now mommy says that my store is not as big as the one she used to go to in NYC but it's just as beautiful. The store is designed with kids in mind. From the beautiful displays to the customer service, it just screams "come inside and play".


American Girl has one of the best customer service you can ever ask for. Have you ever went into a store and wondered where the help was when you needed it? Well you won't have to look for service because they ask what can they help you with before you can even ask. They are always so willing to go out of their way to help you.


I decided to take my old Bitty Baby along to my shopping trip. It has been a while since she's been back where she came from. Mommy and I were going to get me matching PJ's so that I could match my new Bitty Baby. Yes American Girl sells more than just dolls. They sell clothing for your dolls and clothing for you too.


Lets not talk about the displays. It's as if they never want you to leave the store. I had a lot of fun having tea and crumpets with the dolls on display. Since the American Girl store is designed for kids your little one is going to have a field day in there. The displays were made to be touched but mommy of course made me clean up after myself when I was done.


So I bet you want to learn more about the Bitty Baby. Well it is 15 inches tall and perfect for your little one's little hands to hug and give kisses. There are 11 dolls in all and there is one to match your little one's skin color, hair and eyes. Their eyes open and close and they are made of huggable cloth body while their limbs and their head are made of smooth vinyl.


Each Bitty Baby comes complete with a white sleeper (and yes I got the matching one),  a soft cloth diaper, a hardcover Bitty Baby and Me picture book that tells your Bitty Baby's story and a sparkly wishing star.

Now there are also Bitty Baby Twins. These have one major difference. They come with hair that you can play with. They are the same 15 inches and also comes with complete outfits and a book. These are perfect for the twins in your life.


I had an awesome time shopping at American Girl and really didn't want to leave the store. Have an exit plan because your little ones wouldn't want to leave either. Mommy had to tempt me with buying candy so that I could leave. She said that we could go to the candy store and get some gummies. She did keep her promise.


If you're looking for a doll for Baby's First Christmas then look no further than a Bitty Baby for the holidays. It's the perfect size and well made. Complete with story book and star and ready for gifting. I am in love with my new Bitty Baby and I know your little one will too. The American Girl Bitty Baby gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!

  2. You look so adorable sleeping with your doll in matching PJ's. I've never been in the American Girl store. Their dolls are cute but a bit too expensive for me. I know you pay for the quality but just can't afford it. You're one lucky girl, now you have two of them. Give them lots of hugs and kisses.

  3. With having 2 small granddaughters and never knowing what to buy them.. I rely on your ideas to help me with gift giving. I have been looking for 2 cute dolls to buy. I think you have solved my problem.

  30. I love these dolls, but without little girls I have no chance to go to a store! I reminds me of Cabbage Patch Kids from when I was a girl. Need to find a little girl to spoil!

  34. So amazing! I have wonderful memories of when Bitty Baby came out. I was obsessed!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I missed out on the whole American Girl thing when I was younger. They have a restaurant nearby that you can bring your doll to at the table and everything. It's a big deal :).

    ReplyDelete
  36. i can't wait to get my daughter one!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My daughter is getting one for Christmas from her grandma and is going to be so excited.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think I need to take my girls to the store sometime too.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Your baby girl looks a bit angry i the first picture. Lol. But I am sure she loves her doll, judging from the other pics. My daughter never had one which I am now surprised about

    ReplyDelete
  41. SUCH cute pictures! I have never been to an American Girl store and that's probably for the best...it would be dangerous for both me and my daughter. I remember the days when there was an American Girl catalog and only 3 dolls to choose from, no bitty baby in there...and I was obsessed then, so I know I would be now as well! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. So cute - what little girl doesn't love dolls to play with! Especially when they can basically look exactly like the little ones!

  43. Oh how sweet! I used to love the days that the catalogs were delivered! I remember when I got my first doll too! So special!

    ReplyDelete
  44. So sweet!! If we ever make it down there I definitely want to go to American Girl and do some shopping with my princess.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Such a cute doll, any little girl would be so excited to get this at Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Never heard of American girl before but I remember growing up and how much I loved dolls

    ReplyDelete
  51. So cute! I loved my American Girl doll growing up. I never got to go to the American Girl Store, which is probably a good thing because I would have spent too much of my mom's money :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sounds fun! Love that they have twin dolls!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My grandbaby is going to be big enough to go American Girl shopping soon and I can't wait! I really like the quality of these dolls.

    ReplyDelete
  54. When my girls were little they had the American Girl doll Josephina. They always wanted a bitty baby but by the time we could get around to buying one they had outgrown doll babies. American Girl dolls last a long time.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Sandy, I don't think they might be available any longer. They were in 2014 when we did this post. However there are newer versions for 2015 which we showed earlier this month. You can take a look. Thank you.
