Barbie FYK53 Bathroom-Themed Playset, with Shaving Ken Doll and Sink/Vanity, Multicolored
About this deal
Before Michael Cera took the role as adorable misfit Allan in "Barbie," he wasn't a very well known doll.
Ken is dressed in an elegant but boxy-cut suit with shoulder pads and a purple corsage and is ready to take Barbie out for a night on the town. Nearly 62 years later, the two have inspired everything from matching lamé ice-dancer outfits to breathless tabloid coverage.She has this impossible figure and she's very beautiful, and you can dress her up in different ways. Tamkin: I think that my Kens sort of fell into the traditional Ken paradigm where, you know, he was always in relation to Barbie.
Get ready for a lot of entries about how Barbie, in clumsy attempts to be more inclusive, have ended up succumbing to and perpetuating stereotypes.This doll was released in Barbie's The Women of Royalty series where the likes of Cleopatra and Elizabeth the Great were also amongst the royal dolls. Aside from rare collectors' models, your Barbie's age will be the most likely factor in determining its rarity; the older your doll is, the more rare it will probably be.
The way Mattel has spun it, being a vaguely inferior companion is actually the role that Ken was born to do.Bright neon colors with windbreakers and baggy pants and it even includes the signature '90s guy hair, of course.
