Bringing dolls into the Doll Hospital can help kids normalize going to the doctor.
During a “wellness visit,” meanwhile, your child’s doll can receive beautification services like hair brushing and blemish removal. If your kid has taken a marker to her doll or maybe hasn’t brushed the doll’s hair in a year, this could be valuable!
For the dolls who need major surgery to reattach their limbs–or heads–you can drop them off at the NYC flagship or ship them yourself to the American Girl Headquarters in Middleton. Just grab a prepaid shipping label on the American Girl website. Dolls should take two to four weeks to come back to your child, depending on the severity of their injuries. No matter the current status of your child’s doll, consider making your next trip to American Girl Place a healthy one. You never know what your kids could learn from the Doll Hospital!
