this is really messed up mattel. "palm beach sugar daddy ken" (that is the official name) is the perfect barbie to give your kid this holiday season. just in their career testing results came up with "find yourself a sugar daddy, you're useless". this is the official write up:
Cool sophistication in breezy Palm Beach! Sporting a dashing jacquard-patterned jacket with a light pink polo shirt and crisp white pants, Ken doll is ready for Palm Beach social season, sunning by the pool and a stroll with his little companion. Fashion designed exclusively for the Silkstone Barbie doll body. Includes Ken doll, jacket, pink polo shirt, white shoes, dog with leash, swim trunks and accessories, doll stand and certificate of authenticity. For the adult collector.
oh wait, they say "sugar daddy ken" is for adult collectors. i think that might make it even even more messed up. and wtf is this dirty sounding "silkstone barbie doll body"???? i think mattel should re-think their choice of dog, and replace that scotty looking thing with a nice pomeranian.
