Introducing Z Yang: American Girl’s first Korean-American doll! Z (short for Suzie) launched today as part of American Girl’s new line of contemporary characters – representing more diverse backgrounds and creative interests. This adorable doll is an imaginative young filmmaker from Seattle who loves to make stop-motion videos. She’s already racked up a ton of fans (hello, millions of views!) via her “Z’s Crew” web series on American Girl’s YouTube page.
Z’s stop-motion vlogging adventures are told in a two-book series, The Real Z, and Z on location. She also has a line of fun accessories available for purchase including video making supplies and a cute accessory set with glasses.
Z loves staying connected with friends and sharing stories through her stop-motion videos. And to celebrate Z’s launch, American Girl is hosting Z debut events at its retail locations nationwide the weekend of April 28th (this weekend!). On May 6th, American Girl’s stores in NYC, Chicago, Seattle, Dallas, and DC will host meet-up events to introduce fans to real girls who, like Z, have gained a strong online following based on their creative passion for photography and stop motion videos. They are:
- NYC: Basilmentos
- Chicago: AGSmiless
- Seattle: FiveHensandaCockatiel
- Dallas: Mixie Pixie
- DC: FiveDollStars
Inspired by Z, my kids gave stop-motion video making a go. Check out their first video below!
