Ken Day is celebrated on March 13 of every year. The day commemorates the first appearance of Barbie’s long-term on-off boyfriend, Ken Carson, presented by Mattel (an American multinational toy manufacturing company) at a toy fair in 1961. Before four days, we celebrated National Barbie Day (introduction of Barbie in 1959), and today we celebrate the introduction of her friend in 1961. He is Barbie’s boyfriend and similar to Barbie, he is forever young and reinvented continuously. He is known for wearing various outfits in his dream house, and the famous costumes include disco outfits and bedroom outfits.

History of Ken Day

The exact origin and the founder of Ken Day are still unknown. But the day honors the exhibition of Ken Carson at the Toy Fair in 1961. Even though he has some bad comments about his manliness and suggestions that he considered more about his costumes than his love life, the romance between Ken and Barbie had blossomed. They had a brief separation in the year 1960, but after 1960 they stayed together until 2004. Then Barbie announced their breakup in 2005 and transferred her affections to Blaine Gordon (Australian surfing Dude). This announcement shocked the world of plastic celebrities. He had not given up, and in 2011, he made some publicized attempts to celebrate their fiftieth anniversary by winning her back.
