The holiday toys have already been in Costco Warehouses for weeks, but now that we are just one week away from Thanksgiving I feel like I can finally talk about toys without cringing.
Instead of trying to cover ALL of the amazing deals on toys that a Costco has, I've decided to compartmentalize them into subcategories and have several shorter posts instead of one massively long post. The first up in this series of 2016 Holiday Toys are AmericanGirl dolls, books, accessories, play sets, and crafting kits that are available at Costco Warehouses and Costco.com.
If you are not familiar with AmericanGirl Dolls see my post from last year and then explore AmericanGirl.com. Then read on to see the AmericanGirl items Costco is carrying this year at incredible savings.
The AmericanGirl 18" Samantha Parkington Doll Set, from the historical BeForever collection, comes with 1 book, 1 pink polkadot dress, 1 red party dress and 1 white fancy coat. Purchasing these items separately on AmericanGirl.com will set you back approximately $183, but this special set available at Costco costs 34% LESS!
The AmericanGirl Bitty Baby Set is available in several different skin, eye and hair color combinations and is made up of 12-pieces including the doll. This Costco bundle costs 38% LESS than if you were to purchase a Bitty Baby Doll and the similar "Bringing Home Bitty Collection" of accessories from AmericanGirl.com for $160.
The AmericanGirl Horse & Saddle Set, which includes the horse, saddle, bridle, and blanket, is priced 33% LESS at Costco, PLUS you get three bonus accessories: an apple, a brush and carrots!
The AmericanGirl Sleepover Set (for 18" AmericanGirl Dolls) includes a pajama top & shorts outfit, slippers, sleeping bag and matching pillow, popcorn bowl, 2 faux drinks, mini magazine, mini book and min board game. To buy similar items from AmericanGirl.com you would pay over $80, but this special Costco bundle costs 50% LESS!
Each AmericanGirl BeForever Mini Doll and Book Set includes 3 books, 1 mini doll with stand and 1 exclusive bookmark. This special Costco bundle costs 40% LESS than the retail price of purchasing the mini doll, books and stand separately from AmericanGirl.com. Each BeForever AmericanGirl is from a specific historical time period.
