What’s unusual about the picture to the left? If you look closely, you’ll notice Logan, American Girl’s first boy doll.
Logan has joined the new Tenney’s series lead by Tenney Grant, a Nashville rising star. She’ll be joined by Logan Everett, an 18-inch doll with short brown hair, gray eyes, and an original outfit, as well as his very own rhythmic drum set.
Look closer at the picture and you’ll notice Nanea on the left. Nanea is a historical doll who lives in Hawaii during World War II.
Also joining the line up is Z. Yang, a Korean American doll who’s a filmmaker who I’m guessing is second from the right in the picture. Love that she’s Korean and love even more that’s she’s an Asian American doll in a non-traditional career.
“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,” said Julie Parks in a statement to Syracuse.com.
The dolls aren’t cheap. They sell for $115 each.
