Good Morning America revealed this morning there will soon be a bunch of new Ken dolls available for purchase this year: BTW These aren’t regular Ken dolls, they’re way too cool Ken dolls that will come in three different body types, seven different skin tones, and nine different hairstyles, so no doubt I will have one that will look like one of my past boyfriends-who-dumped-me that I can strip naked and tear his limbs apart (anger problems much?). One of groovy hairstyles will be the man bun!
“By continuing to expand our product line, we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation,” Barbie senior vice president and general manager Lisa McKnight said in a statement. “Evolving Ken was a natural evolution for the brand and allows girls to further personalize the role they want him to play in Barbie’s world.”
Not much more information about Ken’s varieties was released, other than that corn rows are one of Ken’s new hairstyles as well. Whoppee-dooo!
Personally, having looked at this collection I have found the perfect lookalike gifts for four of my gay-guy-friends!
So Thanks Mattel! You just saved me the agony of the “WTF do I get you for Xmas 2017” experience and brought the much needed shopping buddies for the Barbies in my own collection. If you have gay shopping buddies like I do, you just know they’re the perfect, bitchy, they-know-fashion-like-I-never-will, bargain-hunting companions for any MAJOR shopping spree!
