Black Tie International:
Ken is 50 Party Celebrating the 2011 Barbie Convention


Ken is 50! The Ken doll was introduced by Mattel on March 11, 1961 as the boyfriend of Barbie, the Teen-Age Fashion Model.  He is two-years younger than his gal-pal Barbie.  Ken Carson was named after the son of the Mattel company
co-founders, Ruth & Elliot Handler, who was named Kenneth.  Although the Ken doll was introduced on March 13, 1961 at the New York Toy Fair, Mattel is celebrating the birthday on March 11th.
  
He has been the first and only true love of Barbie.  When Ken arrived 50 years ago, he was featured with flocked (fleeced) blonde or brunette hair, and he wore red cotton swim-trunks, cork sandals and carried a yellow terry-cloth towel.
  
The Museum of Lifestyle & Fashion History in Boynton Beach , Florida is celebrating 50 years of Ken in its B
arbie: History, Fashions & More
exhibit.  This exhibit has been modified from its original display that opened in year 2009 for the 50th birthday of Barbie. The Ken doll and his history are chronologically integrated in the Barbie exhibit. 
 
The Barbie exhibit features numerous Ken dolls, his clothes, friends and family members along more than 100 Barbie dolls, clothes and accessories from more than twenty collectors from throughout South Florida and Canada.  The Ken dolls are on exhibit now and will be showcased all year.
