Ken from the Mattel Barbie toyline is getting a huge make over. There will be many new versions of Ken hitting stores soon that range in style from his skin tone to his body type. Up until recently, Ken has maintained a distinctively narrow look that encompasses a limited range in diversity. But Mattel announced that we will see many different types of Kens being introduced that have different ethnicities, hair, and body. Maybe one will be openly gay? I guess in our fictional worlds when we play with our toys, they can be gay. I’m not the only one that does that, right?
The new Ken dolls include three body types: slim, broad and original. We also have different skin tones, eye colors and hairstyles. We also get hipster glasses, because reasons? Regardless though, I kinda want to collect these Ken dolls. They seem kinda cool. What do you guys think?
