Calling all Barbie Girls out there! This is the day for you! Yes, this day celebrates the wonder that is Barbie’s boyfriend, Ken Carson (I never knew he had a surname!). Dating from 1961, Ken has been the lovely Barbie’s beau for a number of years. However, apparently their love didn’t last as in 2004 an Australian surfer called Blaine Gordon arrived and swept Barbie off her feet! Who knew?
