2017 is the year of the Ken doll. It took a while, but Mattel has finally updated the doll collection. Barbie’s BF now has three different body types to choose from and is available in seven different skin tones.
Plus, you can also choose from a variety of different eye colors, hair styles and hair colors. I am not exactly sure how this will work—if you can find them all in stores or if you will be able to make your own online (which would be awesome).
According to CNN Money, Lisa McKnight, senior VP and general manager for Barbie said, “we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation.”
10 Ken dolls hit stores today and five more will be showing up in stores in the upcoming months.
