American Girl Tysons Corner Opens June 18 To Much Fanfare

It’s not often a mall store grand opening makes the Washington DC area 6 pm news, but the latest American Girl doll store; American Girl Tysons Corner grand opening did just that today.

In what must have been a super slow news day (no new Wiener pictures), we learned that American Girl Tysons Corner store  is having it’s big Grand Opening day this Saturday, June 18.  You better get there early if you have little girls chomping at the bit to get their own American Girl doll.

Before there was an American Girls Tysons Corner store, insane parents actually took their little girls on road trips to New York to get the American Girl experience.  So you know if they are willing to drive for hours to get an American Girl Doll, they won’t mind standing in a long line at American Girls Tysons Corner.  At least they’ll save a ton of money on gas.

For those, like me, who didn’t know what the heck the American Girl Doll experience is this paragraph is for you.  The American Girl Experience is not just a doll STORE.  Nope, in addition to doll shopping, your kids get doll dining, a doll hair salon, doll parties, and other doll special events.  It sounds like a parents worst nightmare combined with credit card companies wet dream.  Not only is it ultra time consuming, it is ultra expensive.

For those that haven’t managed to keep this grand opening event from their kids, the new American Girl Tysons Corner “experience is located at 8090L Tysons Corner Center, McLean, VA 22102.

Good luck, you’re going to need it.
