Meet Logan, the drummer from Nashville.
Watch out, American Girls, the boys are back in town—well, one boy, specifically. Doll company American Girl is set to release its first ever boy doll: a drummer from Nashville named Logan Everett.
Set to be released with two other dolls on Thursday, the Logan doll is part of American Girl’s effort to respond to customers and their kids asking for characters with, “more experiences, more diversity, more interests,” public relations director Julie Parks told the Huffington Post.
“Adding a boy to our lineup has been a No. 1 request for a very, very, very long time,” Parks said.
In addition to being a drummer, Logan is a friend of another doll to be added Thursday, a singer-songwriter named Tenney Grant. Thursday’s release also features the 2017 Girl of the Year Gabriela McBride, a girl who expresses herself through spoken-word poetry, which helps her control her stuttering as well as save her town’s community arts center.
In April the company will release three other dolls: Z Yang, a Korean-American stop-motion filmmaker; Nanea Mitchell, a Hawaiian character from World War II; and an updated doll of Felicity Merriman, a longstanding character from the Revolutionary War.
Watch an introduction of the new dolls below:
