We couldn’t be more excited to announce Z Yang, American Girl’s newest contemporary character is from Seattle! Z is an imaginative 13-year-old who develops her own take on the world around her. Z (short for Suzie) is Korean-American and loves staying connected with friends through her vlog, Z’s Crew. Now she’s taking a shot at her dream of becoming a true filmmaker.
American Girl’s popular stop-motion vlogger character, Z Yang, is being brought to life for fans who have come to know and love her as the star of the company’s immensely popular web series, Z’s Crew . Z hails from Seattle and loves staying connected with friends and sharing a good story through her stop motion videos.
To celebrate Z’s launch, AG is hosting Z debut events at its retail locations nationwide the weekend of April 28. And on May 6, 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 popularity and a strong online following based on their creative passion for photography and stop motion videos.
