Mimixxx Posted February 13, 2004 Share Posted February 13, 2004 ...it's just so wrong!! :o "Just like J. Lo and Ben, the romance is over for Barbie and Ken. After 43 years as one of the world's prettiest pairs, the doll couple is breaking up. A Mattel Toys vice president said Barbie and Ken feel it's time to spend some quality time -- apart. Spokesman Russel Arons said the couple "will remain friends." Barbie -- according to Mattel -- met Ken on the set of a television commercial in 1961, and they have been inseparable since. Arons hinted the separation may be partially due to Ken's reluctance to getting married. All those bridal Barbie dolls in toy chests around the globe are really just examples of Barbie's wishful thinking. Another possible factor is Barbie's career. The doll has been everything from a rock star to military medic -- and she's currently marketed in more than 150 countries. According to Mattel, every second, three Barbie dolls are sold somewhere in the world." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
