For this Barbie Wednesday I wanted to share photos of Barbie and Ken in their Winter coats!



The coat that Ken is wearing is from Mom's original collection.

Did you know that Ken also had a last name? His full name is Ken Carson.

I also found out that both Barbie and Ken graduated from Willow high at the ages of seventeen. Then went to state college!


Barbie's Jacket is called : It's Cold Outside # 0819 (1964 - 1966)

Ken's tan double breasted coat is from the Play It Cool set #1433 (1970)

Happy Barbie Wednesday, Lindsey

I love Barbie and Ken's coats..and I never knew Ken had a last name. Does Barbie too? I need to see if my daughter still has my old dolls...and if they're in one piece!!!

Love your pictures of Barbie & Ken in their coats. Brings back many happy memories. I still have my Barbies (somewhere). I never did have Ken though.
Come on over for a visit. I have an award for you.

Hi and thanks for Your visit on my blog! I have a secret admiration for old Barbies! (Don´t tell anyone!) My old Barbies are locked away from my small children!! They have to grow up a little before they can play with them. I Love to sew barbie clothes for my children!!

I love Ken & Barbie!
I thought Barbie was always blonde?
I had tons of Barbies growing up--what happened to all of them? I bet my mom is hording them like she does with all my Golden Books.
*hmph*

I had this original Barbie when I was very little! I got it for Christmas--and yes, I am that old. Mine was the blonde version. How much fun to see it again!
