Ken Doll - Where to Find Great Prince, Beach, Toy Story, Collectible and Hard to Find Ken Dolls

Updated on September 2, 2011

Barbie and Ken - Together Again

Barbie was single for two years before she met her beloved Ken for the first time. The year was 1961 and she met him on the set of a television commercial.

Both Barbie and Ken have gone through a lot of changes over the years (and yet, through it all, somehow always managed to keep up with current fashions)!

The world was stunned when in 2004 the iconic couple decided to call it quits after spending 43 years together. This however, has not stopped little girls from dreaming about them getting back together again.

Luckily, Ken is just as popular as ever. This is especially true since the recent release of Toy Story 3 that features the couple prominently throughout the film.

There are so many different Kens to choose from, there are almost too many to list here.

There is innocent Ken from Toy Story and then there is the slightly darker Ken from the Twilight movies. There are Beach kens, Fashion Kens and Prince Kens from just about every Barbie movie that has been made.

See below to discover the vast array of Ken dolls available and where to purchase the perfect version for your little Barbie fan,

Basic Ken Dolls, Beach Ken Dolls, Fashion Ken Dolls

Here are a bunch of everyday play Ken dolls. These Kens come ready for the beach or dressed in great fashions and can provide hours of pretend play fun.

There are even Groom Ken dolls that come already dressed for their wedding to Barbie.

There is the "Alan" Ken doll from the Happy Family collection which even includes a stroller and an adorable little Ryan doll for Barbie's instant family or Ken the doctor doll with little Tommy as his patient if your little one wants to give Ken his own career.
