Barbie’s new crew includes Man Bun Ken and a slew of diverse millennials
Since the invention of beloved pop culture icons Barbie and Ken, the dolls have looked the same: one body type, one hairstyle, one boring fashion sense.
The latest Barbie Fashionistas feature 40 new dolls with 7 body types, 11 skin tones, various eye colors, and 28 hairstyles for “the ultimate storytelling experience.”
And Barbie isn’t the only one getting in on the action. The newest Ken dolls come in three body types: broad, slim, and original. You can also find a Ken with cornrows, freckles, and glasses.
We’re all for inclusivity, but there’s also a new Ken donning a man bun and that… that we have some questions about.
But enough about Ken, Barbie is rockin’ a few new cool styles as well. She has blue hair, an afro, a partially shaved head, a cool, updated wardrobe, and best of all, she comes in sizes ranging from petite to tall to curvy.
Each fashionista in this unique crew is just $9.99, which makes it easy to collect the whole hipster bunch.
