American Girl and Swarovski have teamed up for a blinged-out collab—including a holiday collector doll that retails for $5,000!

With the holidays on the horizon, American Girl will unveil its brand-new window decor on Nov. 8 (only in flagship stores in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles). In a partnership with Swarovski, the iconic doll-maker will debut American Girl-inspired winter wonderland window displays featuring 350 crystal strands and 130 pounds of Swarovski crystal dust (NYC store only).

Visitors to the flagship stores will have the chance to check out, pose with and even purchase the newest American Girl Holiday Collector doll. Each $5,000 doll took 40-plus hours to embellish with over 5,000 crystals.

If you’re in the NYC area on Nov. 8, Grammy Award-winning performer Ciara will host the American Girl New York window reveal, starting at 6 p.m. Along with the chance to see Ciara (and the wonderland-like windows), visitors can also make seasonal crafts, get a free signature hairstyle at the American Girl Salon, enjoy food/beverages and score goodies in special giveaways.

Jamie Cygielman, General Manager of American Girl, said in a press release, “American Girl has always been the ultimate place to celebrate the holidays.” Cygielman added, “This year, we’re taking the anticipation to a whole new level featuring a first-ever collaboration with Swarovski. We can’t wait to light up the city together with our dazzling holiday window displays, and inside the store, we’ll wow fans with our limited-edition collector dolls. Plus, in New York, Grammy-winning artist Ciara will join us to ring in the season in style.”
