American Girl, the beloved brand known for helping girls grow up with confidence and character, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mattel, announced the launch of its first historical character in three years, Courtney Moore.

Courtney is a total '80s girl whose big, bright, and bold ideas inspire today's girls to find their inner hero to accomplish great things.

Growing up in 1986, Courtney's story reflects the pop culture of the decade from sky-high hair, neon-colored fashions, music television, and video gaming to major historical moments surrounding women in government and space exploration, as well as larger cultural shifts around blended families and emerging technology.



"Courtney Moore is the best gamer in the arcade. But in the real world, she needs to learn a thing or two before she can unleash her inner hero," the toy company wrote on its site.

Fans can get Courtney in stores on Sept. 25.

Skiby has been charged with two counts of rape of a child, a first-degree felony and two counts of sodomy upon a child, a first-degree felony, court documents state.

One of the girl's family members reported Skiby to the police, telling officials that the girl had been receiving the messages on Snapchat.

Court documents state Skiby messaged her: "I want to make love to you so bad it makes my body shiver," "I miss you and I love you," and "Please make sure you delete these messages."

When police seized the girl's phone, they discovered a picture of the girl with Skiby in bed, topless.

Court documents state the girl told law enforcement officials that a group of friends had watched a scary movie at Skiby's home and they slept in his bed.

Following this, the child started sleeping in his bed during sleepovers and Skiby allegedly would touch her inappropriately, KUTV reported.

Skiby also forced the girl to take off her pants, court documents allege, repeatedly touch his private parts, and raped her more than once, according to KUTV.

It is unclear if or where the suspect is currently in custody.
