Are Barbie and Ken getting together again after 43 yrs?

Monday, February 7, 2011

WASHINGTON - Toy manufacturer Mattel Inc. is seeking public opinion on the possible reunion of Barbie and Ken, who split in 2004 after 43 years together.

The blond bombshell called it quits with her longtime beau in February 2004, and announced a new love in her life - an Australian surfer named Blaine.

It’s not clear what’s happened to Blaine but after seven years apart, Ken is trying to woo back his former flame.

Mattel Inc. is using Facebook and Twitter to test the waters on whether the iconic doll duo should reunite.

Ken, who has reinvented himself as the new “Sweet Talking Ken” doll-soon to hit toy stores-is tweeting that he thinks he and Barbie “are perfect for each other.”

“If you do too, vote YES for her to take me back,” the Fox News quoted the Malibu hunk as tweeting.

Mattel says the revamped Ken doll is “the ultimate boyfriend for every occasion,” because he “says whatever you want him to say!” according to a report on Marshable.

For Barbie, however, an Elizabeth Taylor/Richard Burton-like comeback might not be so easy.

“OfficialKen and I have had some fab times. I just don’t know what to do!” she posted on her Twitter feed. (ANI)
