American Girl to release Logan Everett, its first boy doll

Move over, Molly, and step aside, Samantha — there's a new American Girl doll, and his name is Logan.

The company will release Logan Everett, its first boy character, on Thursday, with the doll and his accompanying book costing $115. He lives in Nashville, plays the drums in a band with his friend Tenney Grant (a blond, brown-eyed doll), and comes with his own set. "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," spokeswoman Julie Parks told CBS News. The company will also introduce two other new characters on Thursday: Korean-American Z Yang and Nanea from Hawaii.
