Sweet Talkin Ken Doll barbie's Boyfriend

UPDATED WITH WINNER -Scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won!

In the past few weeks, it seemed as if Ken was popping up everywhere! First, he winked at Barbie on Match.com. Then he secretly jetted off to the original Magnolia Bakery in New York and was spotted designing a custom cupcake just for Barbie. He even declared his love for her on billboards , Us Weekly and the Jumbotron in Times Square!

Today we are happy to announce that Barbie and Ken are officially back together. The happy couple is sharing the news on their website, www.BarbieandKen.com, where you can see the first photos of Barbie and Ken reunited as well as pictures of all of Ken’s grand gestures. They may be plastic but their love is real!

All I can say is Ken has been doing some serious sweet talking in order to recapture Barbie’s love interest! Speaking of sweet talking, we received a Sweet Talkin’ Ken doll to review and another one to give away to a lucky reader thanks to Mattel.

As the “ultimate boyfriend” Ken always knows the right thing to say and he’ll say it as many times as you wish, as a matter of fact, he’ll say anything you want, because you are ultimately in control! Press Ken’s heart and record your message – something like, “you look gorgeous in that dress” or “would you like me to make dinner?” Then put the words right back in his mouth! Press the far left playback button on his back and you will hear your message in Ken’s voice. Choose the center button and it will be your voice and if you are in a goofy mood, try the button on the right – Ken’s voices gets rather high pitched.

Ken comes dressed in jeans, black shoes, the ultimate boyfriend t-shirt (in a variety of languages), wearing a watch and has very Justin Bieber-ish combable hair.  We think he’s pretty cute although my girls are still not sure he needs to be channeling the Bieber – at least he trying to keep up with the times!

The recording quality of Ken’s sweet messages is not exactly broadcast worthy, but for a toy, it works. Afterall, he is saying nice things – we are not expecting perfection!

So how do you get your hands on a Sweet Talkin’ Ken of your own?
