Today we have a Friday Guy just for a change. Last week Naomi brought me back the last of my stuff that was at her house and this included a box of Ken’s and clothing. I had not seen these dolls for two years so I decided to pick one to use today.
I have a small collection of Ken’s and Movie Date Ken was always one of my favourites. His brown eyes and curly hair gave him a slightly different look to the standard Ken that was being made at that time. He has a non articulated body with the bent arms. Originally he came wearing khaki cargo pants and a blue, white and yellow tee-shirt. He carried a tray with pop corn, a drink, chocolates and the movie tickets. Only one of each so perhaps he and Barbie were going to share. Movie Date Ken was also made as an African American version although I can’t recall now if he was sold as Ken or Steven. That version never made it to Australian shores.
I do have the original clothing and most of the accessories still. I know that popcorn is sitting in the Tammy House right now. However I liked Ian, as I call him, in the outfit he had on so I left him in it.
