If there's such a thing as a gender-reversed glass ceiling for American Girl dolls*, then Logan Everett is about to shatter it. Huffington Post reports Logan, American Girl's first boy doll, is being released Thursday. A PR director for the company says a boy doll has been a top request from parents and kids "for a very, very, very long time." A little bit about Logan: He plays the drums, lives in Nashville, and wears a plaid button shirt. American Girl thinks he'll be popular with both boys and girls. Logan is part of a "notably diverse collection" of American Girl dolls being released this year. The company plans to roll out a Korean-American doll and Hawaiian doll, among others, according to CBS News.
