American Girl Bed-UPDATE

Hi, I tried to find the thread we posted on when the Today show deal came out. My DD got her AG Marie Grace yesterday and absolutely adores it. I'm kicking myself for not getting the bed on sale. I thought someone on the thread had an extra. Please let me know.

It was me... and i already sold it. Sorry. I could kick myself for not buying an extra doll. We have a school auction and it would have been a great donation.

Bummer! I got my DD8 the bed and Marie-Grace doll. They are both lovely and DD keeps carrying them around from room to room. I just couldn't pass up the 60%+ savings.

Thanks for the replies. The doll was a splurge for me and I was more concerned with getting it than the bed too. I tried eBay but they are still pretty expensive. Maybe we'll find a different cute bed for her.

Is it a certain bed? You can get furniture that fits American Girl dolls at Target, it is just not the American Girl brand. They are a lot cheeper. Or if you or your husband are handy you can find plans to build a little bed at the great website called Knock Off Wood. Just some ideas

This is the bed that I got my DD. I believe I had a 30% off code and paid around $50 for it. It is a really nice and cute bed made out of wood. She loved it. I also ordered her the Melissa & Doug baby crib.

I have heard that IKEA has beds that will work for AG dolls too. I don't live near a store, but if you do, you might want to check there too.

I was about to post the same thing about IKEA and the bed. I plan on going there within the next couple of weeks, it's in my town. If you want, I can take a picture of it and send it to you.

From what I've heard, they're around $10 and wood that you can stain/paint. I've found adorable bedding on etsy that's around $25.

I'm considering this one for DD for when she gets her AG doll for her birthday. I, too, didn't think to buy the bed that day...not sure I regret it though. The reviews on this one seem quite good (which surprises me considering it's Walmart.) Biggest plus..it's $25!

I considered that one too, however I read that the canopy was tough to put together and could break.

Michaels has one, it's the Springfield doll bed with bedding...not sure about the price. I am sure Hobby Lobby has one as well.

The Ikea beds are great for AG dolls. They're wooden and very sturdy and durable. They cost around $25 and they come with bedding. You can paint them, decorate them and even create bunk beds out of them.

I found a Springfield one at Michael's and had a 50% coupon so I got it for $20. I'm also eyeing an inexpensive but cute one on eBay. We have 2 dolls, an AG Marie Grace and a Madame Alexander. My DD wants a My American Girl next. When did your girls start outgrowing AG? Mine is only 7 but I don't want to invest too heavily if she'll be out of it in a couple of years.
