Ken’s feelin’ groovy…

I have no emotional ties to Ken and Barbie, but I appreciate how they created a whole new world for girls as they out grew Betsy Wetsy and were ready to play with the big girls. The wardrobe these dolls had were beyond fabulous. Grandma was unloading her little girl’s dolls dating from about 1970 at a recent yard sale. Who knew Ken was a blond, or this may be his brother.

    I don’t know enough about Ken or Barbie to know if this is Ken dressed up so sharply or a blond haired cousin or friend. All I know is I love his fringe edged pockets and belt buckle a lot.

    I love that the outfit is made out of felt. Almost looks like pajamas were it not for that fancy vest.

    Looks like a Malibu Ken from the early 70’s w/one of his hip mod outfits. Most likely this doll was sold only in his swim trunks and a towel. I love this chamois looking vest set. Ugh!
