About American Girl

Published every other month, the magazine provides an alternative to teen magazines for pre-teens growing up, but straddling the gap between girlhood and young womanhood. Each issue features articles designed to encourage self-esteem and creativity in young girls--in keeping with the message of the company's popular doll--while also highlighting the achievements of girls their age.

American Girl's editorial is a mix of both non-fiction and fiction articles, age-appropriate content, and advice on growing up gracefully and fitting in with peers. Reader-favorite sections in every issue include: "Girl's Express," a compilation of crafts, contests, photos, and more; "You Said It," a feature in which girls answer a question posed by the magazine and submit questions of their own; "Cooking," fun twists on simple everyday snacks; and "Parties by YOU," which allows girls to develop a party theme and make all the complementary preparations, from the menu down to the invitations, for it.

American Girl magazine would make a great gift subscription for any pre-teen girl!

American Girl Magazine Subscription Review


Hi. I’m Jesse. Being a mom has taught me a lot—mainly, that kids, especially girls, are growing up way too fast these days. Between the Internet, Facebook, smartphones and the low-slung skinny jeans in kids’ sizes, we parents are fighting a somewhat losing battle against “growing up way too fast.”

But there are beacons in the night, things to help keep our little girls stay innocent a bit longer. One of them is the sweet, wholesome American Girl magazine, which offers the goodness of making homemade candy monsters for Halloween and how to handle problems at school. These are the things little girls and tweens actually want to talk about—well, that and boys.

Besides featuring “25 ways to transform a t-shirt,” American Girl magazine also celebrates the writing of its readers, even sponsoring fiction contests for young girls. And while you might be begging your girl to get off the computer and to go get some fresh air outside, take comfort in knowing this magazine will make exercise seem a whole lot cooler than you ever could, Mom.

The thing is all of our girls are growing up; we’re just trying to make sure they don’t grow up too fast. Boys can wait and will come and go, but chocolate and candy monsters will serve a girl well for a lifetime.

Thanks for taking a look at the current American Girl magazine subscription deals at Magazines.com. Be sure to give us a call at 1-800-MAGAZINES if there’s anything we can do to help.

      I received the very first issue of American Girl Magazine when I was nine, and waited impatiently for each issue up through high school when first niece was old enough to be interested in it. I now buy a subscription for each of my three nieces and my one cousin for Christmas each year, and I enjoy reading it with them, as I remember my mother doing with me! This mag has wonderful helpful, level headed advice, fun activities, and great stories about the American Girl Dolls as well as stories from independent writers. It features interesting history lessons relating back to the stories and interesting articles about real girls all over the country. I cannot stress how highly I recommend this magazine to any girl 8 to13. It's one of the great high points of my childhood and I wish everyone would share it with a girl they love.

      I've subscribed to American Girl since I was eight, and everytime I finished an issue, i would close it and give a disappointed sigh. Now I am smart enough to cancel my subscription. There were to many pictures, and it doesn't give you good advice. It doesn't help you with anything. I would recommend it to a five year old girl who loves bright colors.

            My 9-year old daughter loves this magazine. It is sweet and not too overly commercial. THere are always great craft and party ideas, and usually some life lessons in the stories.

            from Undisclosed

            My 7 and 9 year old daughters love this magazine and spent their own money to buy the subscription. They devour it when it comes and re-read it over and over. They like the craft ideas and the cute posters that come in the issues.

            Great Magazine for girls and their mothers!

            By Emma's mom

            from Wilmington, MA

            My 10-year old daughter and I love reading American Girl at night. We take turns reading stories, taking surveys and doing the craft ideas. It's much better than sitting in front of a computer or TV.

            By pancake

            from U.S.

            American Girl magazine is an exciting magazine for all girls. There are cool contests to enter, such as the super girls contest(cool super heroes were entered.) There are also interesting stories about girls and there families that might have some kind of trouble or disease. I really think you should get this magazine!
