Meet Logan, the first boy doll in the American Girl collection. Doll company American Girl is breaking major barriers with Logan Everett, an 18-inch-tall drummer boy, which will be released on Thursday.
Doll company American Girl has made steps in recent years to diversify its popular lineup and did so again this past Friday with the naming of its “Girl of the Year” doll. The latest is African-American girl Gabriela McBride, the first Girl of the Year doll since 2011 who isn’t white. Fans of American Girl dolls have known for years that the only African-American doll available for a time was Addy, a 9-year-old girl born into slavery who eventually escapes to freedom.
