American Girl Releasing First Boy Doll!
American Girl launched their line of dolls in 1986, and for the first time ever, this year they are releasing a boy doll! Here are all the details.
The company is set to release a larger set of dolls in 2017 than previous years, including a doll named Logan Everett, a boy who plays drums alongside his friend Tenney Grant, a singer-songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee. Both dolls will be available Thursday, according to the Huffington Post.
Several other characters will be released throughout the year. Check out the video of all the new dolls you'll see this year:
The company regularly receives feedback from parents and kids asking for characters with “more experiences, more diversity, more interests,” Julie Parks, director of public relations at American Girl, told The Huffington Post.
Fun fact: I was actually named after American Girl Doll, Samantha. She was one of the three that helped launch the collection back in 1986.
