This is major, guys. Our very first crush, Ken, is getting a makeover. Or rather, he’s getting 15 different makeovers.
Mattel just expanded its Barbie “Fashionistas” line to include 15 new Ken dolls, featuring three different body types, seven different skin tones, eight different hair colors, and nine different hair styles (including man buns and cornrows).
There’s “slim” Ken (a.k.a. Twink Ken):
“Broad” Ken (a.k.a. Chub Ken):
And “Original” Ken (a.k.a. Gym bunny Ken):
In a press release, senior vice president and general manager for Barbie, Lisa McKnight says:
By continuing to expand our product line, we are redefining what a Barbie or Ken doll looks like to this generation. 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.
Let’s not forget the boys, as well!

The new Ken doll has a man bun to go with his no penis.

There's a new Ken doll with a man bun. Said Ken, "Might as well. I have no genitals so I already wasn't getting laid."#Ken #Barbie #manbun

Never had penis. Rode in the passenger's side of a pink jeep. Now, a manbun. Hasn't this guy suffered enough? #kendoll #ken #barbie pic.twitter.com/WFb21p0XNy

I don't even own the new man bun Ken doll but he's already mentioned CrossFit three times.

The Ken doll with the man bun comes with a bottle of wine from Trader Joe's that it won't shut up about.

So in another word, there's gay Ken Barbie?

We can’t help but wonder how Rodrigo Alves, a.k.a. the “Human Ken Doll,” who has spent close to half a million dollars on nearly 50 plastic surgeries to look like Barbie’s boyfriend, feels about all this.

Personally I think it a bit tacky that they did not include an asian Ken or Barbie. But hey, that just my opinion. Thank god I grew up in the days when little boys played with toys they were expected to play with and like them, gay or not.
Shut up troll.
The Ken in the yellow plaid shirt is Asian
I love it. They look like the cast of Drag Race out of makeup.
My only issue is ManBun Ken. Are they going to give him a sloppy beard and make him talk about how he and his partner (Whose a woman but he wants to sound edgy) MIGHT adopt from Pittbull Rescue for hours?
