Ken, He's a Doll! That is how he was introduced into Barbie's world
Ken. The first Ken dolls had flocked hair glued to the sculp of his head, in
blond or brown color. There has been Ken dolls found with a lighter brown
flock too, but he is not that common (like a titian Barbie). Ken's eyes are blue with painted "lashes", looking very
much like eyeliner. Neither of my boys are in great shape, but rather played
with. The flock has come loose and they are dirty... Poor guys. I just don't
know how to clean them without further harming the remaining flock. LOL!
Nah. Just too lazy. But you get to see the sculpt anyway. As so many other
dolls of this era, no visible stamp can be seen, so I guess it is inside the
rim of the neck. Somewhere.
I haven't had too much experience with these guys, to further
investigate anything else, so I'll just leave it at that.
There has been some reproduction dolls released with a few versions made
with the vintage flocked Ken sculpt.
