There’s just something about the Barbie and Ken lifestyle that still attracts grown up attention, isn’t there? Maybe its Barbie’s enviable wardrobe or Ken’s understated sartorial style that keeps attention on the toys longer than any other from childhood.

The beloved Barbie has had a revamp of her wardrobe and body shape, with additional Barbies released into the market to cater for diversity in our current society.
