hen you think of a Barbie doll, you probably think of the basic thin blonde woman who is always forced to stand on her tip-toes and a buff helmet-haired Ken who never takes off his underwear.
In other words, while there have been slight variations and friends added to the crew, they've looked pretty similar for years — until now.
Although Mattel has updated Barbie and her friends to include more styles and sizes in the past, they’re upping the ante with their newest set of Barbie Fashionistas.
The new line features 40 new dolls with seven body types, 11 skin tones, various eye colors, and 28 hairstyles for "the ultimate storytelling experience."
And while Barbie is getting some new looks, it’s really Ken that’s stealing the show this time around.
The line includes 15 new Ken dolls that come in three different body types: Broad, slim, and original.
In addition, the dolls will feature seven skin tones, eight hair colors, nine hairstyles and updated fashions “unlike any other Ken dolls you’ve seen before.”
And yes, that’s a man bun you see.
“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 of Barbie. “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.”
Speaking of Barbie, you can find her with blue hair, an afro, a partially shaved head, an updated wardrobe, and in sizes ranging from petite to tall to curvy.
Each doll retails for about $9.99, so you can go ahead and create your own millennial collection.
Looking good, boys and girls!
