Barbie and Ken, together again

The world was devastated when iconic Mattel couple Barbie and Ken announced their separation in 2004 after 43 seemingly happy years together. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, however, Ken has wooed his ladylove—aww!


Barbie broke the news on her Facebook page today: “Yes it’s true... after seven long years apart, Ken and I have decided to rekindle our romance. A doll know when it’s love and I’ve finally realized that my heart only beats for Ken.” 


While we’re thrilled that our fave plastic duo has seen the light, we have to hand it to Barbie and Ken doll manufacturer Mattel. Over the last month or two, they’ve staged this reunion of the perfect pair with hopes that it would renew interest in the best-selling line of dolls. Here’s hopin’—we just can’t imagine a world without Malibu Barbie and her Dream House.

Vote now! Should Barbie have left Ken on the curb or do you think the pair are truly meant to be?
