American Girl Introduces First Ever Korean-American Doll Z Yang

There’s a new American Girl doll coming to the block and she’s so awesome that you may be the one begging your kids to play dolls.

Z Yang, short for Suzie is the first Korean-American doll in the company’s contemporary line of dolls, proving that for this company at least, inclusivity and representation of all girls from diverse backgrounds matters.

Her backstory shows that American Girl really pays attention to the details of their products, and we’re not just talking about underwear. “We made Z Korean-American because it’s an ethnicity we haven’t featured before in our character lineups,” American Girl spokesperson Stephanie Spanos told PEOPLE. “And, in our research, we found there was a significant Korean-American population living in Seattle, where Z is from.”
