Vintage Ken Dolls & Clothes

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!

1961 Ken & Barbie Dolls

Vintage Ken dolls proved that a sharp dressed man
was the ultimate accessory for Barbie.

Kenneth Sean Carson was Ken's full name.  Although Ken was not as popular as Barbie, he had several same sized friends through the years that shared his wardrobe. Check out this list of all Ken dolls and clothing including pictures and descriptions.
