Is It Just Us, Or Do The New Ken Dolls Look Just Like These Celebs?

The resemblance is UNCANNY!

I was a HUGE Barbie fan when I was younger. I had one box stuffed with Barbie dolls (and the lonesome Ken doll) and an even bigger box full of clothes and accessories.

Because my best friend conveniently lived on the same street as me, we would often spend all day creating elaborate back stories for all of our Barbie dolls, and build mansions for them out of Star Wars toys left behind from her older brothers and retro dollhouses from my house.

Obviously, Barbie dolls were a staple growing up.

Of course, while Barbie dolls were fun to play with, they didn’t really offer much in the way of diversity.

I mean, you can only own so many blonde dolls that all look the same. I distinctly remember only ever having one dark-skinned Barbie because she was pretty much the only one on the market at the time – and that was over 15 years ago.

And as for body diversity, there was no such thing as a Barbie doll with thick thighs, broad shoulders, or cellulite.

And I know you’ve all seen that creepy picture of what Barbie would look like if she were human-sized… not pretty.

So to say that Barbie was a great role model for anyone who didn’t exemplify her skin color, blonde hair, or tiny waist would have been totally wrong. At least until now.

When news of new Barbie dolls being made in Zendaya and Ashley Graham’s likenesses came out, I totally geeked; every little girl deserves to own a Barbie doll that looks like her.

And now with a whole new line of Ken dolls – complete with different hair styles, skin tones, and body shapes – I’m so ready for this new generation.

Granted, a lot of people are making fun of the man bun and “trendy” clothing (a la your last Tinder date) that New Ken is sporting (and yes, it’s hilarious), but it’s important for the Barbie brand to change with the times.

Plus, I don’t know about you, but all of these new Ken dolls look an awful lot like celebs to me.

Maybe it’s just because the brand wanted to update his look to be more similar to this generation, but you can’t tell me that you don’t see a little bit of Colton Haynes or Zac Efron in these dolls.

To prove my point, here are all the new Ken dolls and their celebrity doppelganger.

Chris Pine

I don't think it's possible for anyone to be as cute as Chris Pine, but this Ken doll is pretty close to the real deal.

Colton Haynes

Those glasses are a dead ringer for Colton Haynes.

John Boyega

You can't deny that this Ken doll looks JUST like John Boyega... I think it's that smile.

Justin Bieber

The blonde hair definitely makes this Ken doll Justin Bieber's match.

Bow Wow

The cornrow complete Bow Wow's signature look to a T.

Tyler James Williams

Can you see the likeness of Tyler James Williams in this Ken doll? I can!

Zac Efron

Zac Eforn's boyish good looks are definitely replicated on this Ken doll.

Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik and his mini me are sporting the same man bun here!

Michael B Jordan

That smile looks JUST like Michael B Jordan's!

Hunter Parrish

With the blonde hair styled the same way and the shape of the jawline, Ken looks just like Weeds' Hunter Parrish.

Trevor Donovan

90210's Trevor Donovan in doll form... I wonder if Ken has ever been to Beverly Hills?

Avan Jogia

Another set of twins sporting similar man buns - Avan Jogia and Ken!

Miles Teller

This Ken doll's face looks EXACTLY like Miles Teller.

Macklemore

The undercut hairstyle is very Macklemore.

Robert Ri'chard

I can definitely see Robert Ri'chard duplicated in this Ken doll.

Can you see the similarities between Ken and Brian White?

Zachary Quinto

The glasses definitely make this Ken doll look like Zachary Quinto.

Ken is the spitting image of a young Cam Gigandet.
