In 2017 a new line of Ken dolls was revealed. Like Barbie Ken went through a
transformation and was given new body types, Broad and Slim, but also with a
new "Original" body. He also was seen with a variety of new face/head
sculpts. One of the new sculpts was this black one with tiny braids all
over, cornrows. Same style as part of the Zig & Zag Barbie's 'do. He has big
lips, like the Flavas Tré doll but less pronounced. Now, if the Mattel
factories could manage to give him a faceup without spilled color strings
etc, I'd be a very happy girl.

I am so sad over his overshaved cheeks.
He looks like he has overdone it and has gotten the scars to prove it. I
really hope not all dolls looks like this one. OK, they actually don't.
