Happy Holidays: This American Girl Doll Costs $5K

Don't know what to get for the girl who has everything? How about a doll decked out in thousands of dollars worth of bling? If you've got $5,000 lying around and can make arrangements with an American Girl flagship store in Los Angeles, New York, or Chicago, a glamorous version of the popular doll is waiting for you. CNN Business reports that three dolls in total—each adorned in more than 5,000 Swarovski beads and crystals as part of a co-branding initiative between American Girl owner Mattel and the luxury jeweler—are up for grabs.

Fox Business notes that each of the three dolls took more than 40 hours to "embellish." Each of the dolls will hold down the fort at her respective store through most of the holiday season, until Dec. 20; at that point, the lucky party that buys each one gets to take ownership. Can't spring for the Swarovski specimen? For the plebes, the doll company is offering a sparkly "decked out holiday dress" for a mere $36. (More American Girl stories.)
