    A pedestrian carries an American Girl shopping bag while walking along 5th Avenue in New York, on Monday, Oct. 17, 2016. American Girl products have been available at some Toys R Us stores in the United States, and are expanding to nearly 100 throughout the country.

    American Girl dolls, the customizable figurines once available only at the company's stores, are finding new homes all across the country at close to 100 Toys R Us stores.

    The brand announced in August that it would be selling its products at Toys R Us stores, and "WellieWishers" line of dolls hit shelves in select stores early September, according to a press release.

    While some shops have already been set up, the nationwide grand opening for the shops is coming this Saturday, according to a Toys R Us spokeswoman. 

    The new "shop-in-shops" feature "Truly Me" dolls, "WellieWishers" doll outfits and accessories. They are opening in 97 locations across the United States.
