Barbie's Beau, Ken, Gets A Hipster Makeover

Barbie's man, Ken, is getting a modern day makeover!

Maybe Ken is about to become cool because Mattel just announced they are releasing 15 new Ken dolls with different body types, skin tones, and more modern hairstyles. 

Soon kids will be able to pair their Curvy Barbie with a Ken that rocks a dad bod and man bun! 

Mattel (the manufacturer) says they're trying to redefine Barbie and Ken to look more like the current generation. Evolving Ken's appearance was a natural step in that process of expanding their roles in girl's lives. 

What do you think of Ken's modern makeover? Would your Barbie's still be with G.I. Joe or would she give one of these new and improved Kens a shot?
