American Girl, the company behind the line of character dolls and books from different periods in history, will open a retail store in the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto.

The sprawling two-level store, scheduled to open in the fall, isn't your average toy store. It will include not only the full collection of book and dolls -- which sell for more than $100 apiece -- but also a bistro for birthday parties, a doll hair salon for dolls and shop to design doll T-shirts.
