confession time: Floral Tee Ken is, I think, my first AA Ken ever. but he's also the first non-swimsuit AA Ken I've seen since rekindling my collection as an adult. I love this guy's friendly smile! he'll probably end up hanging out with my original Artsy, who was, coincidentally, my first AA barbie I think. I bet they'll have fun together.
he comes in the standard fashionista box. the back features photos of a few of the other dolls in the line.
Ken's fashion is simple- a floral Tee, and shorts. the Tee has a navy blue background with red and yellow flowers and purple leaves printed on it. the shorts are a nice heavy olive colored material with yellow topstitching to add details.
here's a closeup of his face. doesn't he have a great smile? you can also see the floral pattern of his shirt a little better.
Ken wears a simple pair of beige loafers. they do have lots of nice molded in texture to make them look woven. with a paintwash these will look really nice.
The Bottom Line:
The Good: handsome gent with a nice smile
The Bad: little articulation, no accessories
The Verdict: Floral Tee Ken is a nice looking dude, but judging by the large numbers I've seen in stores, he's not very popular, so you might be able to wait and grab him on clearance.
