That’s right! THAT’S RIGHT! In today’s thing to check off the 2020 Bingo Card, American Girl announced they are reviving the Contemporary Character line in order to bring more diversity for the American Girl line! In a reply to a tweet about Courtney, American Girl said this:
“We’re pleased to share that we’re currently developing a new line that includes a contemporary lead Black character, as well as other contemporary characters of color, to debut in late fall 2021.”
How exciting! I love how AG is doing this to ensure more diversity for the dolls. However, I hope that they do a doll with autism soon, since they haven’t done a neurodiverse doll yet. Also, making more Girls of the Year and Historical Characters of color and from different walks of life is important, too!
