Barbie is making a lot of changes in her lifestyle and this year it begins with her beau.
Just a few days ago, we were introduced to a new line of Ken dolls that look different than the Ken doll of 1961.
No longer does he just have blonde hair and blue eyes, he also has braids and a man bun. He comes in a variety of body types from thin to muscular, and skin tones from white to brown.
Mattel, the maker of Barbie had this to say about the new Ken doll: “By continuing to expand our product line, we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation,” said Lisa McKnight, Senior Vice President and General Manager.
We can really appreciate the new Ken doll because he is now representing different looks and cultures that many young people can relate to. This is a long time coming, be we are glad that they changes have been made.
The new Ken doll can be purchased for $9.99
