A representative for American Girl told the Huffington Post that there has been a demand for a male doll. 

“Adding a boy to our lineup has been a number one request for a very, very, very long time,” she said.

The 18-inch dolls typically sell for $115, with the opportunity to purchase additional accessories. 

Since American Girl's launch, the company has sold 29 million dolls 153 million books. American Girl has even opened three restaurants in the United States for children to dine with their doll.
