American Girl dolls FIRST EVER AMERICAN BOY?

13 Jul

I’ve recently been scouting on trademarkia.com, the place where every American Girl fan finds out about the first American Girl stuff, and recently found a trademark that read AMERICAN BOY. Even though the Bitty twins have a boy, there’s never been a whole section for boys!

Before you say this might be a fraud, remember all of the other dolls that have recently come out that have been on trademarkia for years before any recent news about them arrived: Rebecca, McKenna, Marie-Grace, Cecile…remember? This is also a legit site for patented ideas that are now beyond the process of idea, and have been TRADEMARKED by someone, or in the process of being a product. And we all have to admit that almost every product we’ve seen on this page has come true. Now any idea is subject to be dropped because it isn’t finalized, so don’t get your hopes up too high. But it does make you wonder…what does American Girl have up their sleeve this time?

This is a recent trademark. Some of the goods associated with him are CHILDRENS BOOKS; COMIC BOOKS; BOOKS AND BOOKLETS FEATURING FICTIONAL AND NON-FICTIONAL STORIES, ADVICE BOOKS, ACTIVITY BOOKS, COLORING BOOKS, CRAFT BOOKS, PUZZLE BOOKS, NOTEBOOKS, STATIONERY, STICKERS.

It sounds like it might be in the form of the MyAmerican Girl dolls, where they have different books like crafts, advice, notebooks…it seems that they will be modern boys. But we can see that it will be a new section. I can’t see them repeating times in history. And from the trademarks, we also don’t see a mention of actual DOLLS, which is what all the other dolls have had in their trademarks. We see TOYS instead. I mean, I’m assuming that this is supposed to appeal to boys, so what boy is going to want to play with dolls?

However exciting, it really will be hard for them to appeal to boys through this company. Even though I know American Girl is trying to expand their target audience so that they can gain more money, American Girl has a reputation of being a company for…well…girls. Trying to invite a boy to attend the American Girl Place so he can buy an American Boy will be a bit awkward. At the same time, I can’t see little girls wanting to buy boy toys. It will be a little rough. Well, it’s left to be seen.

JUST IN: Valerie Tripp will be the author of a boys’ book series! According to a Time magazine article, “the guy-focused series follows a group of cabin mates at modern-day Camp Wolf  Trail, a riff off of a real summer camp in Maryland, according to the Washington Post.” It’s not confirmed whether this series is tied with the trademark, and as this article was in 2011, it’s not for certain. But the trademarkia date is as recent as can be: June 1, 2012. At the time, it looked like Valerie Tripp couldn’t find a publishing company. But now right here in 2012, she may have found American Girl as her publishing company.

So lets look forward to what American Girl has in store! We still have the new American Girl historical Caroline to look for in stores. And maybe soon an American Boy to join us in our homes!
