History

Blaine is a male doll produced by Mattel in 2004. He is a comeback of New Yorker Blaine Gordon produced earlier in 2000's Generation Girl line and had now moved to Austrailia. Blaine loves Hip Hop.

As part of a large-scale publicity promotion by the toy manufacturer Mattel, the day before Valentine's Day in 2004, a press release was issued, stating that the world most famous fashion doll couple, Barbie and Ken, were parting company.

Soon thereafter, Toy Fair 2004 introduced another male doll in to Barbie's Cali Girl beach-themed line of toys. This was Blaine, a boogie boarding Australian native, who is now dating Barbie. "Cali Guy" Blaine dolls appeared on store shelves late June 2004.

Much was made of this, both the press and the internet. Blaine dolls were initially very popular, and he even won an on-line poll at barbie.com website, besting Ken handily in the hearts and minds of the on-line public.

For nearly two years, Blaine was the man in Barbie's life. No new versions of Ken were produced during this period, but his presence was felt by means of "Handsome Groom" dolls, which was basically Ken dolls without the Ken name on the package. In mid-2006, Ken returned to Barbie's life, with a much-ballyhooed "New Look" and an updated, more modern image. No New Blaine dolls have been issued since.

Blaine has a sister named Summer, who, according to the "Cali Girl" storyline, is a good friend of Barbie's, and the reason that Barbie first met Blaine.
