The latest American Girl is a boy.

To be released Feb. 16, the Logan Everett doll is American Girl’s first boy doll, according to the company. He is supposed to be a drummer on the Nashville music scene. He has short brown hair and gray eyes and comes with a drum set.

“A boy character has been a top request from our fans for decades,” says Julie Parks, spokeswoman for the doll company. “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 — with more experiences, more diversity, and more interests.”

Logan is one of American Girl’s first new “contemporary” characters of 2017. He is supposed to be the bandmate for another new doll, “rising star” songwriter Tenney Grant, according to a news release.

In addition to a set of drums, he will come with “a compelling storyline within the series, and we believe many parents, girls and boys, will be glad he joined the fold,” Parks says.
