Logan, an 18-inch doll, is a band-mate and friend Tenney Grant, American Girl's newest contemporary character. Logan has short brown hair, gray eyes, an original outfit and his very own rhythmic drum set.

American Girl will launch its first boy doll, Logan Everett, in stores on February 16.

Logan, which is the first male doll in the 31-year-old line of dolls, dons a fashionable hairstyle, a T-shirt worn under a plaid button shirt and dark-washed jeans.

"Tenney's story was the flawless opportunity for us to introduce a boy doll character", she added.

The company decided 2017 would be the flawless opportunity to introduce its first 18-inch boy doll with a fun storyline and dynamic personality.

Watch out, American Girls, the boys are back in town-well, one boy, specifically.

The dolls will sell for American Girl's standard retail price of $115 for a doll and a book.

The company says a boy doll has been a top request for decades.

Logan is not the only notable doll in American Girl's 2017 collection.

Mattel, which owns American Girl, said the boy doll is part of a push toward more diversity in American Girl's lineup.

According to a report from Bustle, this is the first of many inclusive announcements we'll be seeing from the American Girl family this year.

In the fall, a Hawaiian character named Nanea who lived during World War II will be added to American Girl's historical collection.
