Ken's always been a player

Remember when you were a kid and you had like a million Barbies but only one Ken? So you would have Ken get married to each of the Barbies in turn, or take them each on a date in the convertible. Somehow this never caused catfights in the mansion, and you never dwelled on it because you were, well, a kid.

Apparently Mattel has gotten wise to that whole trend. Enter the Mad Men line of Barbies. What better inspiration for the pre-teen set than Don Draper, philanderer extraordinaire. Don't get me wrong: love the styles (even without cigs and martinis), love Joanie and love-love-LOVE Don and Roger. Extra bonus: they're enough man to date your entire Barbie collection, and won't forget to pick up flowers for the wife on the way home.
