Barbie 'Excited' As Ken Revamps Image (We saw this on Sky news web site)
Barbie had better pay attention - her companion Ken is sporting a new look. Ken has undergone a series of makeovers since his launch in March 1961 and for his 45th birthday, he is getting a more 'sculpted' face. The new 'beach fun' Ken is also more toned and highlighted, according to manufacturers Mattel.

Over the years, Ken has seen his tan go paler and his hair blonder.

Hollywood stylist Phillip Bloch is said to have used celebrities as inspiration for Ken's latest makeover.

He said: "Ken has revamped his life - mind, body and soul. (Which plastic doll has a bloody soul, what a load of claptrap!) "Everyone knows how difficult it is to change, especially when you've lived your life a certain way for more than four decades."

The Ken doll was named after the son of Mattel founders Ruth and Elliott Handler.
The new-look toy goes on sale in the UK on March 1 priced £4.99.
