50 Years of Ken !

In 1961, Mattel introduced a Boyfriend for their very popular icon – Barbie! In celebration of Ken Carson’s 50th “birthday”, I thought it would be fun to post photos from an article I did for the FDQ Barbie Celebration Issue in 2009.

I re-decorated the original Barbie Dream House just for Ken !  Since Barbie moved on to the New Barbie Dream House in 1965, I felt Ken needed his own bachelor pad.  Here are the results.

Happy 50th Birthday Ken!

 

(Condolences and Blessings to the Handler family who just lost their patriarch, Elliott Handler, co-founder of Mattel, earlier this week.)

    With a pad like this, Ken won’t be a bachelor much longer. Barbie looks ready to move in ;-) Perfection, Maryann!
