What do you say when your boyfriend gets a sexy makeover? 


COME TO BARBIE! Mattel's steadfast boyfriend doll Ken has been given a fresh new look to keep up with the times. This is the biggest change the blonde hair, tanned skinned stud has gone through since 1961. 

In 2016, the Barbie line was transformed to include dolls with a wider variety of body shapes, hair types, and skin tones. Now it's Ken's turn to take a long-awaited dip in the diversity pool. 

The Barbie® Fashionistas® line update for their Ken dolls will include three body types – slim, broad and original – as well as new eye colors, skin tones, hairstyles, and outfits! One particular Ken has been getting attention for his trendy man-bun. (Designers clearly scouted Ken doll inspo in Brooklyn. 😂) 

Barbie® has deemed the diverse doll collection "The New Crew." The website reads New Friends + New Fashions = New Stories

Ken® Fashionistas® Dolls are available to pre-order now for July 8th shipment. Check out the full collection at barbie.mattel.com
