Let’s be honest here. Who is more of the fan of American Girl dolls in your house? Is it you or your children? I love seeing the dolls dressed up in their period costumes with their hair elegantly coiffed. It can be like stepping into a time warp. Each doll is replicated to from head to toe to fit the genre.
In 2017 American Girl is giving girls More Characters to Love!
We so excited to share with you the newest dolls Tenney and Logan!
For more than 30 years, girls have met and fallen in love with American Girl characters—both historical and contemporary—that have helped build self-confidence, inspire creativity, and give a broader understanding of the world. Now, in response to thousands of impassioned requests from fans for more options, American Girl is introducing a new series of contemporary characters and stories designed to speak to even more girls’ interests, backgrounds, and experiences. The fresh approach gives voice to a diverse range of personalities and backgrounds and new ways for girls to connect with smart, compelling, and aspirational characters that they can relate to and love. The new 2017 American Girl characters, including those from today and yesterday, will come to life via beautiful 18-inch dolls and unique outfits and accessories, as well as a variety of different content forms that tell their stories—from books to live-action specials to other digital platforms like online videos, web series, and apps.
Just recently American Girl fans have met the newest contemporary character, Tenney Grant. Tenney is a breakout singer-songwriter from Nashville who is pursuing her dream of becoming a performer. Tenney will launch with an 18-inch doll and music-inspired outfits and accessories.
Tenney comes to life for girls via a beautiful 18-inch Tenney™ doll featuring long, curly blond hair and warm brown eyes, an exclusive outfit that reflects her artistic side, and a book chronicling her story. The Tenney collection also comes with several music-inspired outfits and accessories, including a miniature version of an authentic Taylor® GS Mini® guitar that can be strummed and plays three songs, and a two-sided stage and dressing room that features more than 40 pieces, like an amp, microphone, and working spotlights
In addition, the line will also feature Logan Everett, Tenney’s band-mate and American Girl’s first-ever boy character.
Logan’s assortment includes an 18-inch doll with short brown hair, gray eyes, and an original outfit, as well as his very own rhythmic drum set.

Tenney has a world of feelings, ideas, and music welling up inside her—all she needs now is the right stage to share what’s in her heart.
