Barbie’s gotten thousands of different looks over the years, but Ken has basically always looked the same. That all just changed big time. Except – well – he’s still parts-free. Since ’59!
Mattel just announced they’re rolling out a HUGE variety of new Ken dolls. There are seven different skin tones, three different body types, and nine hairstyles. The body types are regular, slender, and, quote, “broad.” Basically, that’s a “dad bod,” although from the pictures, he’s really not that “dad-bodish.”
The hairstyles are getting the most attention though, mainly because one of them is a MAN BUN. The other one that’s pretty unexpected is corn rows, but no one’s really talking about that, because — man bun.
Ten new Kens hit stores this week, and five more are going to roll out over the next few months.
