Does anyone know where American Girl Dolls are made and whether there is any info on whether they contain lead or any other toxic materials?<br>
Thanks,<br>

The "American" doll is made in China. I have a bitty baby to, bought by my mom, my dd loves her and I really HOPE that they do not get recalled.

Thanks for the replies. Shortly after posting here I checked them out on Ebay. Apparently "American Girls" was bought by Mattel in the late 80s.<br><br>
Any "Pre-Mattel" (PM) dolls are supposedly collectible due to a perceived difference in quality. They seem to cost upwards of $75.00 so Pre-Mattel American Girl Dolls are not an affordable alternative even if they were made in America. I didn't look that far into it.<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
