He’s held his age well – thanks to a lot of plastic.
His look has definitely evolved over the years.
He’s gone from looking like a scared little boy in 1962, to a pretty girl 2010.
I think they’ve gone a little overboard with the guy-liner. Either that, or in order to save money during the recession they just recycled Barbie’s face mold and topped it with a dude’s do.
I love the 1972 Ken. I had a serious crush on Leif Garrett as a kid and Mod Hair Ken takes me back.
The 1991 Totally Hair Ken is a riot! What they’re missing though is Mullet Cut Ken to honor the unforgettable 1980s signature cut.
Instead they went with Dream Date Ken 1982, which is my personal favorite. I think I’m drawn to him because I’m pretty sure I married him (with a slight nod to Totally Hair Ken, see below).
The words of a song sung by Streisand in Funny Girl rang all too true for us, “To tell the truth, it hurt my pride. The groom was prettier than the bride.”
I’ll never know how I managed to snag him. I am certainly no Barbie.
Time has seasoned him with a little salt and pepper and rugged edge.
Take that Ken! You could never pull off that hat, and only real flesh and bones can fill out a pair of Wranglers.
Happy Birthday Cowboy Ken!
