They are aimed at 8+. My daughters have both dolls & books despite now being in secondary school. The historical dolls & their connected books are really good. I also like their books on homework, friendship & growing up, but they are definitely for older girls. The one on puberty is very good, I got it from Amazon.

Oh and I really, really wanted one of those dolls mentioned in the article! I used to just go and stare longingly at them in the toy shop. They were very expensive though.

This piece in The Guardian has just reminded me about American Girl books, which I loved as a child. We lived in America at the time - were they popular over here? Has anyone read them recently and can recommend any? I really remember one where the girl had to stay at the table to eat her swede, think it was set in war time. My daughter is 6.5 - is she too young?
