Today, Barbie and Ken fans can celebrate Ken Day. It was 49 years ago today that the first Ken Carson doll was unveiled by toy company Mattel.
The very first Ken featured a bathing suit, sandals and a yellow beach towel, and sold for only three-dollars and fifty cents.
He is the longtime boyfriend of Barbie, who was first introduced in 1959.
In 2010, Ken was featured alongside Barbie in Disney's "Toy Story 3."
