Jan:  I have been to the Washington DC one several times, and the NYC one twice.
10. If you could build an American Girl Place somewhere else, where would you put it?
Cindy: Hawaii (unless there's one there already, IDK. :))
Hope: I’d definitely do one closer to me, though I am close to a few!  And one in Oklahoma City, OK doesn’t have any!
Jan:  Where I live!  But I can't tell you where that is!  :). Other than that, I think AG should build some AGPs in other countries.
11. What are some of your favorite things to do with your dolls?
Cindy: I like doing their hair, dressing them, taking pics of them, and playing a silly game called Time Machine I made up.
Hope:  I really like doing photostories with them, doing their hair, dressing them up, and sometimes I even just sit down and play with them!
Jan:  Dress them, do their hair, and think up fun photo stories and things to do with them on my blogs!  :). I like to watch movie and things with them, too.

14. What would you say is the most fun thing about collecting dolls?
Cindy: Oh, that's a hard one! Mmm, IDK...I really like doing their hair and reading their books.
Hope:  Doing blogs, I’d say, and just having them, I mean dolls will always be there for you when friends aren’t!  {Even though Jan & Cindy are always there for me}
Jan: Hmmmmm......I don't know.  Just playing with them, and having fun.  :). Doing blogs with them is lots of fun too!
15. Do you dislike anything about American Girl dolls?
Cindy: No way! Unless you count the fact AG retires stuff. xD
Hope:  I just don’t like the prices, they are very expensive, even if they are good quality!
Jan:  Well, yes.  The prices!  AG's prices are actually ridiculous; I really think they should lower them.  I also think that AG should focus a little more on the Historical Characters.  More HC movies would be really nice!

My *Updated* Wishlist

Hey girls, I thought I'd post about what dolls I want next, but first I'd like a few pairs of clothes.  Here is my complete wishlist in the order I'd like! :)
I want Molly's whole collection, but I'd really like...

Her new PJ's first.  These are adorable and only avalible for limited time! :)
Then of course I want her party dress, her tap outfit, her 1994 swimsuit and her holiday dress.

I'd also like Saige's Pajamas.  I don't have them yet and they are sooo cute!

Her sweater outfit is cute, and I'd like that.
Then I want her new outfit being released in July.

And her parade outfit.

And the Easy Breezy Outfit.
For the dolls I'd like....

Rebecca Doll, Book & Accessories

Ivy!  So right now I'm JUST focusing on getting Molly & Saige's collections out of the way since Molly has a high chance of being archived and Saige is going at the end of the year!  Then I'd like to collect more of Kit's collection and of course Caroline's, and that's really all, I mean I have lots of outfits for them but Id really like their whole collection!
