A Locker For American Girl Dolls Reviewed

A Fun Accessory For Her Doll

Our American Girl Doll Needs A Locker
One of our little granddaughters is about to turn six, so I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. Her response was some "stuff" for her American Girl Doll. "Grandma, I would like stuff for her to use, not clothes but, you know, stuff to use and play with." she says.

So, off I went looking for some accessories (stuff) that she would enjoy. Let me tell you, there is no short supply of "stuff" for the dolls! I knew that but was amazed with all of the options available. Too much fun, I'm telling you, just too much fun for a shopping Grandma who wants to thrill a little girl.

Now, I should tell you that my husband and I have a couple of vintage school lockers in our home. We have one for me to use out in the sun room. I keep gardening supplies in it because it is close to the back door. We also have one that we let our grandchildren use to stash their prized possessions in when they are here or to keep safe until the next visit. The kids love that locker! 

So, when I found a locker made for the American Girl Dolls or any 18 inch doll; I knew my quest was over for a little while, anyway. There is Christmas coming after all! The birthday gift is taken care of with the cutest locker you can imagine!


I am really impressed with how well made this little doll locker is! It is metal, just like a real school locker. I chose the hot pink one for my granddaughter because pink is her most favorite color. There are other colors to choose from, if you don't care for the hot pink. It also comes with a little label that can be personalized for the Doll and a sticker that looks like a combination lock. Oh, it also comes with four little hangers to hang the doll clothes in the locker. Adorable! Just absolutely adorable! Additional hangers can be ordered separately.

Besides being a fun accessory, it will make for some great storage, too. She can put doll clothes in it but also the little shoes and small things that we wouldn't want her puppy dog to find and swallow. My granddaughter loves to have cubbies, boxes and such to store her things in. Sometimes, you will go in to see what she is playing and she is organizing her "stuff" into compartments. She is going to love this locker!

If you have a child's birthday coming up or are shopping early for the holidays; this little locker is a wonderful option for you to consider. The great thing is that it doesn't have to be for a little girl, I think boys would love having one to put toys in, also. This grandma loves it so much that she might have to get another one to have here; you know, for when the girls visit.

  1. Oh, what a fabulous way to store American Girl Doll clothes and accessories. I love this creative "out of the box" idea. I am certain any American Girl doll owner would enjoy having her very own locker for her doll's clothes. What a cute design.

  2. Oh I love gifts that you can "build" on. that's why the Lego's are so much fun for kids and this looks like it would be fun for a "girly, girl" who loves her American beauty dolls. Christmas will be full of other nice surprises that she can stow away safely for the next time she is playing with her dolls. Love it, Bev Owens.

  3. What an absolutely perfect gift for your granddaughter and her American Girl Doll, Bev. Especially since you have actual school lockers at your home your grandchildren are familiar with. A 'just like grandma' gift. Perfect! I love main gifts one can build on/add to for subsequent gift-giving times.

  4. When I was small, I loved dolls and had many of them. Back then there weren't many accessories. I would have loved the American Girls dolls, but they came along many decades after I stopped playing with dolls, and even after my own children were gone. I would have loved to have a locker like this. I can see why it's the perfect gift for doll lover.
