Z Yang from American Girl.

American Girl is launching its newest doll, a Korean American doll, on Thursday. Z Yang (Z is short for Suzie) comes from Seattle and is the star of the company’s web show “Z’s Crew”.


American Girl tells us that Z “loves staying connected with friends and sharing a good story through her stop motion videos.”

There will be events at American Girl stores around the country April 28-30. There’s a store in Dallas and Houston, but none in Austin. Hint: Domain, get on that.

The Dallas store is also having a meetup with fans on May 6.

Z is part of American Girl’s contemporary line that is supposed to represent the diversity of American girls. American Girl dolls are usually about $115 a doll.
