Barbie’s gotten thousands of different looks over the years, but Ken has basically always looked the same, but that all just changed big time.
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. This is part of their bigger Fashionistas collection, which has 40 new dolls with 7 body types, 11 skintones, and 28 hairstyles.
The body types are regular, slender, and, “broad.” Basically, that’s a “dad bod,” although from the pictures, he’s really not THAT broad.
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 everyone’s focused on that man bun.
Ten of these new Kens hit stores yesterday, and five more are going to roll out over the next few months.
