Barbie Finally Introduces New Ken Dolls
After nearly 60 years of having to stick with the same tanned, blonde, blue-eyed bae, Barbie finally has some new options.
Toymaker Mattel has just announced 15 brand new Ken dolls, this time including a range of outfits, three different body types, seven skin tones and nine hair styles, as NPR reports
. Now, Ken can also be black, Asian, Latino, multi-racial, skinny or plus-sized. He can be dressed in business casual or a tracksuit. He can have cornrows, or a… wait for it… ~man bun~.
As per usual, the good people of the ~interweb~ took to Twitter and Instagram to express their reactions to this long-awaited news. Peep some of the best responses below:
Looks like Ken is finally catching up to his female counterpart, who just last year
was also given a range of more diverse
looks and body types. In fact, NPR reports that Mattel is set to release another 25 more diverse Barbie dolls. We should hope so, its 2017.
