I have three Grand Daughters that have American Girl dolls that Grandma bought. They wanted wardrobes to keep their dolls and the dolls clothes in. Yep, American Girl just happens to sell wardrobes at $350.00 each that comes to $1050.00 + tax. This is the result of less than $100.00 in materials.
For those of you that have Grandkids know Grandma and Grandpa can never say ”no”.

Those are great. My stepdaughter has one. She’d love a wardrobe. Do you have any dimensions or anything?

They are wonderful!! The girls will really love them – not only for what you made but also because they were made by “grandpa’ Awesome gift! :)

I made some last christmas and they were a big hit with my then 4 and 5 yo old daughters. I added drawers and even put in a vanity mirror inside the left door. Nothing is better than gift made for a loved one. Nice work.

What a great thing Mike, I recall buying one of the American dolls sometime back for one of the grand daughters. I went to her “White coat ceremony” a couple of weeks ago as she started medical school, they grow up so fast. You do a great job.
