American Girl Grace Thomas Bakery
I just got back from the American Girl store in L.A. It was CRAZY! I got there two hours early and I still wasn’t even close to the front. Details about the line later, right now it’s time to talk about the fun stuff. Like the Grace Thomas Bakery! My store said they only had eight and they didn’t even have them set out! Workers were bringing them out and people were standing there shouting at them, “that’s mine! this one’s mine! I’ll take that one!” Yeah, craziness all over. Thank goodness my husband was there, he scored one! Now that I’m home and I’ve had a good bite to eat, let me show you just how amazing it is in person. And that is no exaggeration, it is amazing! I had my sister take the kids out, because I wanted to get in and out of the store, plus I didn’t want them to get grumpy and ruin the day. So, I have the bakery completely set up so when they get home there is nothing but fun play time! Oh, and don’t be fooled, my son will be right there in the mix! (pun intended, lol) I’ll share pictures later of the kids and their excitement.

**Update. I have gotten a lot of questions about this bakery. The first is, is the $500 price for the American Girl Grace Thomas Bakery worth it? Well, seeing as it is American Girl, yes. One, we all know that the name alone adds value to any item. This item however, is very big, and very detailed. So, the $500 is worth it to have the product and the name. However, I stand by my DIY instinct and say to you, if you or someone you know is handy, hold out. Why? Because I am making an exact replica. If you are okay with a knock off version or a DIY version, wait! It will be very similar AND you get to decorate it the way you want! That’s always fun! Also, I will break it down into step by step instructions, so it won’t be that bad. The post is coming soon, so check back daily. I’m tempted on doing a giveaway for the one I build. If you think that’s a good idea, leave a comment below! The more comments I get might help me decide to give one away or not!
