Ken (Barbie's ultimate boyfriend and accessory) was the first to be introduced into Barbie's family and was named after the creator's (Ruth & Elliott Handler) son. Ken. Ken was offered with Flocked Hair in 1961, and his look changed a bit when he was issued with molded painted hair in 1962. Ken's body went through a transformation in 1965 when he was given bendable legs. Ken also has a Vintage friend of the same size, Allan whom he can share his wardrobe with.
