Ken wanted to welcome Erik to the neighborhood. They think they are going to be good friends.

Ken is wearing the shirt from Victory Dance, grey pack slacks, and his favorite hat from Rally Day.

Erik is wearing The shirt from Sport Shorts, brown pak slacks, and the tan windbreaker.

Well, I recently recieved my first vintage Ken doll. He is a blonde painted hair Ken from probably 1961 or 1962. As with everything doll related, I won him on Ebay for really good price. I was thrilled to find out that he came from the collection of someone who was a manager at Mattel in the mid 1960's. He is in very good condition, only having a few paint scrapes on the hair.
 

My new guy, Erik.


I think I am going to rename him Erik. He just looks like an Erik to me. Plus, I have decided to keep my vintage reproduction Ken named Ken. I dont know why, but I am horrible when it comes to renaming dolls. I usually like to keep them named whatever the company calls them. lol.

In the picture Erik is wearing The shirt from the Sport Shorts outfit. And, even thought you cannot see them, he has on a pair of brown pak slacks. Oh, and the tan pak windbreaker.

 
I also have an actual vintage Allan doll on the way. I am not exactly sure what condition he is in. The pictures on the Ebay listing were kind of vague. But, he didnt appear to have any paint missing, and his face looked to be in good shape. And after all, if you are planning on keeping a doll dressed, face and hands are the main thing that needs to look good. (IMO)

More info, and another picture after the cutCollapse )

I have not posted pictures of Allan and Erik together yet. I think they make a cuter couple than Flocked Ken and Erik, but I have a weakness for Allan anyway.

Allan

This is Allan. He is wearing a yellow pak polo shirt, the shorts from Time for Tennis, the socks from Victory Dance, and a pair of white loafers. Isn't he a doll? I love his red hair, and brown eyes. So cute.

After the cut are pictures of Allan and Erik together.Collapse )
