There’s big news floating around for fans of the American Girl doll franchise – the company has created a new boy doll, and he’s currently available for purchase!
According to the Huffington Post, American Girl is gearing up to bring a large set of new dolls to the market this year, and one of them, notably, is male. This new American Girl doll – or perhaps American Boy – is named Logan Everett, and he lives in Nashville, Tennessee. He plays and writes music with his friend and band mate, Tenney Grant, an aspiring country singer doll who was also released earlier this week.
“We’re hopeful Logan will appeal to both girls and boys, said American Girl spokeswoman Stephanie Spanos, speaking to Us Weekly. “For boys, we know Logan can speak directly to them and give them something unique and special to call their own.”
According to The New York Times, Mattel, the owner of the American Girl brand, has been receiving feedback from customers for some time now asking for more diverse and more distinct dolls. American Doll believes that as the first male doll offered in the company’s 31 years of doll making, Logan will be a big hit among their audience, and the company hopes that Logan is the answer for kids who have been trying to diversify their collection for some time.
Here at Gigi’s Dolls, we agree that it’s pretty exciting to see such an historic brand finally release a male doll. Both Logan and his pal Tenney are available now, so keep an eye out for these dolls and even more new and exciting dolls from the company expected to be introduced in the coming months.
