What It Is

Kids can follow Barbie's life in the dreamhouse through Mattel's online animated show Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse. Offline, the characters from the show come to life through new talking dolls. Talkin' Ken says 15 different phrases from the show when kids push the heart-shaped button on the doll's chest. Phrases include, "Hey doll, how's Malibu's most fabulous girl?" and "I did it! I created artificial glitter."

Is It Fun?

Barbie fans will love hearing Ken talk as they play. The phrases from the show help bring the character to life and add a little more fun as kids play out scenes from the show or imagine their own storylines for life in the dreamhouse.

Who It’s For

Talkin' Ken is for Barbie fans ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Four button cell batteries are included. These power the in-store try-me features, so it's recommended that you replace the batteries before you play for best results.

Before you play, make sure to remove the plastic try-me tag from the back of the doll to activate its full features.

Additional talking dolls include Talkin' Barbie and Talkin' Raquelle. Each doll is sold separately.
