american girls ~ mini illumarooms


the american girls line made minis back in the early 2000s, including these fun illumarooms ~

Ag mini's lil's diner

lil's diner lunchcounter ~

Ag minis kitty bedroom

this girl's bedroom set has a kitty with her own little house too of course ~

Ag minis illumarooms 1

by 2003 they were discontinued due to product breakage & electrical lighting issues ~

Ag minis illumarooms 3

i love the cool retro lil's diner set with lunch counter & accessories ~

Ag minis illumarooms 4

& all the mini items that make this set look so realistic, like the tiny shakemaker ~

Ag minis illumarooms 9

this reminds me of rainy afternoons spent having a grilled cheese & milkshake at toxic's old local woolworth's lunch counter ~

Ag minis illumarooms 10

the light bars stick by magnet & plug into tiny outlets ~

Ag minis illumarooms 8

the windows also stick by magnet & have changeable scenes you insert ~

Ag minis illumarooms 7

originally these set boxes were made of wood like mine are ~

Ag minis illumarooms 6

mattel took over from the pleasant company years ago ~

Ag minis illumarooms 5

i still have many of the fun magnet/signs from lil's diner on my fridge ~


here's the bedroom box set before you arrange it with lights & furniture ~

Ag minis illumarooms 12

see the tiny outlets ~

Ag minis illumarooms 13

the wall pieces are reversible depending on which pattern you like & a dustcover sticks over the front also by magnet to protect the scene inside ~

Ag minis illumarooms 11

i wish i'd gotten the horse stable set before these were discontinued, but there were only so many xmas's they were available ~
