Ken®; Barbie's® Boyfriend and Allan®!

 

While the first issue Ken (1961) was sold with 'flocked hair,' the subsequent issue Kens have 'painted' hair (blond or brunette)

(note: It is very common for Ken and Allan's arms to fall out of their sockets!)

Here is a brunette version of the first issue 'flocked' hair Ken, with his original box/accessories.

Allan joined the Barbie friends in 1964. He and Ken shared the same body type and clothing. He was sold with a multi-colored stripe beach jacket, navy trunks, blue cork sandals, wrist tag, booklet, and black wire stand

 

1.. Model #1000 - First Issue Allan Markings (box date of 1963):

Above is a very unique Ken with painted legs. While this is already a rare finding on Barbie, a Ken with painted legs is extremely rare and hard to find! Be gentle with all painted leg dolls.
