Vintage Ken Dolls & Clothes

1961 Ken & Barbie Dolls

Vintage Ken doll, Barbie's Boyfriend (and ultimate accessory!), was introduced as the first addition to the Barbie family of dolls in 1961.

Just as Barbie was named after the creators Elliot & Ruth Handler's daughter, Ken was named after their son. Like Barbie, although his look and style evolved through the years, he always had a killer wardrobe and an ensemble for every occasion!

Vintage Barbie & Ken

Although Ken was not as popular as Barbie, he had several same sized friends through the years that shared his wardrobe. Read on for the list of all Ken dolls and clothing including pictures and descriptions.

1962 Fashion Pak Items
(Marketed as "mix and match" fashions, these items did not have an item number and were more inexpensive than ensembles because they weren't complete outfits. Usually just a single clothing item, some also had an accessory or two.) These items were only available for one year.
