Over the past few years, Mattel has updated their iconic Barbie brand to reflect more diversity. Now, they’ve updated her male counterpart, Ken.
They’ve launched 15 new Ken dolls with 3 body types, 7 skin tones, 8 hair colors, and 9 hairstyles along with 25 additional diverse Barbie dolls.
“By continuing to expand our product line, we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation,” said Lisa McKnight, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Barbie in a press 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.”
Here are just a few of the new looks for Ken. See more of “The New Crew” at www.Barbie.com.
