Z.Crew (also stylized as Z's Crew) is a series of stop-motion Youtube video blogs created by American Girl starring Suzanne "Z" Yang. The initial intent was to show viewers tips on creating their own stop-motion videos. In 2017, American Girl revealed the doll and character of Z, who stars in the videos, and the focus turned more to spotlighting various American Girl characters through Z's vlogs.
The videos are created using stop-motion techniques. Originally, videos used a variety of AG Truly Me dolls and accessories. With the release of Z and her collection, accessories and focus more on items in Z's Collection.
Users are encouraged to connect their videos to AG using the hashtag #AGZCrew.
