American Girl Dolls will be adding a boy character to it’s American Girl doll lineup for the first time in 31 years. The new doll will be in stores this week. His name is Logan and he’s a drummer with brown hair, gray eyes and his own drum set. American Girl boy character is a move in the opposite direction. Logan could be primarily played with by young girls, though he could be appealing to young boys as well.
Mattel, the company who makes the American Doll, created a lineup of Barbie with four different body types and several different skin complexions last year. That line was well received by shoppers. Now let’s see how long it takes for the first African American boy doll to debut in the lineup.
