While Ms. Barbara “Barbie” Millicent Roberts has sported plenty of looks in her six decades of fame, for the most part, she’s always had blonde hair and blue eyes. Our boy Kenneth “Ken” Carson, on the other hand, has been a constant fashion chameleon. When he was first introduced in 1961, Ken came with “flocked” hair (IT FELT AND WAS LOADED WHEN IT GOT WET) and couldn’t even bend his arms. That all changed in 1977 when “Superstar Ken” was introduced, sporting a dimpled smile, bendable arms, plastic blonde hair, jewelry, a ridiculous tan, and the muscular build Ken would become known for. In the years since, Ken has adopted a variety of looks including “Disco Ken”, “Malibu Ken”, his current bun-wearing option for “Next Gen Ken”, and gay icon “Earring Magic Ken”. . .”
Don’t worry, there are plenty of cursed Ken doll designs too, and some of my personal favorites include “Rappin’ Rockin’ Ken” with bonus cultural appropriation, “Biker Ken” with a crisis ponytail from the midties and a Just For Men dyed goatee, “Mod Hair Ken” with eyebrows that take up half of his forehead and a removable mustache, and “Totally Hair Ken”, which came with a bottle of waist-sized hair gel from Ken that would definitely ruin your bedroom carpet.
