My local Costco had a flood of American Girl items arrive. There was already a bracelet and tutu craft kit, but now there's the BeForever mini doll and book sets--Melody included--activity book kits, but most importantly, a horse set! This was in Federal Way, about twenty-five miles south of the Seattle city line. In case the picture on the horse set is a little difficult to read, it's priced at $49.99. I've never paid much attention to the horses, but the quality looks great!
The activity book kits included a beach picnic set for Lea, a pet clinic set, a boutique set, and a school set. My favorites were the school and Lea sets, as they seemed to have the best value for what was included. I believe they were $24.99. Seems a bit steep for a 32-page book and a handful of accessories. The mini doll and book bundles are $39.99--equals out to about the full cost of the mini doll and the books at half-price.
Sorry for the glare in the photos; Costco doesn't have the most ideal lighting. Good hunting!
New at Costco $39.99
