In 1962, Ken® doll had a few changes to his original costume. The swim trunks (in either red poplin or a red knit) were topped by a striped beach jacket with sewn-on terry trim. He had cork sandals with red plastic straps. And the most notable change – his hair changed from flocked to painted, and was available only in blond and brunette.
