Barbie regains her taste in blokes

Great news from Mattel Toys, and not before time. But why does the most recent Ken doll look like a Madame Tussauds effigy of Princess Diana? And the 1990s version like Boy George after a fright but before he lost his hair? I’m certainly available if they’re looking for a more mature version of a truly twenty-first century heartthrob – overweight, homely but with a certain je ne sais quoi.

“In the 1970s and ’80s, he took up inline skating and boogied to disco tunes; in the ’90s he focused on his careers as a businessman, baseball player, explorer and rock star.”

Sounds like 1990s Ken was a bit of an overachiever. No wonder he had to take a break from Barbie!
