Fans of the American Girl collection just got the surprise of their lives when they heard about the new doll coming out on Feb. 16. Though the collection has released many new faces over the years, this American Girl character is so different.
It's an American boy.
Yes, American Girl is releasing a boy doll for the first time ever. The character's name is Logan Everett. Logan is a brunette musician who plays the drums alongside his female friend Tenney Grant, a singer from Nashville.
Apparently, this news has been a long time coming for many fans of the collection. As company spokesperson Julie Parks put it, a male character has been a "top request" for quite some time now.
"We do an enormous amount of research with girls and their parents, and the one thing we've heard loud and clear is a desire for more—specifically more characters and stories from today—more experiences, more diversity, and more interests," Parks said.
What do you think about adding a boy character to the collection? Would you buy a Logan for your daughter or granddaughter?
