The American Girl book series started just as I was towards the upper end of the targeted age range: 12. Only the original 3 girls at the time: Kirsten (1854 blonde braids), Samantha (1904 brunette w/ bow), and Molly (1944 brunette w/ braids). I still love all the books and am continuing to complete my collection! Some day soon my daughters will be old enough for a doll of their own.
