This American Girl holiday collector doll costs $5,000

If you thought American Girl dolls were already pricey, how about one that costs a few thousand dollars? 

You catch a glimpse of the $5,000 American Girl Holiday Collector doll at American Girl Place’s holiday window through Dec. 20. The line of dolls teamed up with Swarovski to create a dress with more than 5,000 Swarovski crystals and beads. Only three dresses were created for Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. The Chicago holiday doll is already sold.
