The 18-inch doll has gray-eyes and brown hair and wears sneakers and a t-shirt. He's a country music drummer, and he enters the American Girl scene with his friend, singer-songwriter Tenney Grant. Both dolls will be available starting Thursday, Feb. 16 for $115.

Each girl came with a "meet outfit", including accompanying accessories and a paperback book - the total packaging cost around $100 per doll.

American Girl recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and has expanded over the years into films, magazines and stores with boutiques. "Leo is a favorite and plays well with all the American Girl dolls over here!"

Mattel, which bought the Wisconsin-based dollmaker for $700 million in 1998, added its first limited-edition African American Girl of the Year, Gabriela McBride, in 2016.

His name is Logan Everett, and just like all of his female compatriots in the American Girl collection, Logan has a story to tell.

On Tuesday, the company announced the release of the doll, saying that customers have been requesting such a character for decades.

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. To answer that call, in 2017, we are introducing more, new contemporary characters than ever before-including our first-ever boy doll, Logan! One of American Girl's historical characters, Felicity Merriman will relaunch on Thursday as well.
