Mattel Toys surprised collectors this week with the release of the anticipated BMR1959 line, designed by Carlyle Nuera. Combining the exuberance of the Barbie Benetton line from the early 1990s with Nuera's unique take on street wear, the line is refreshing and exciting. Much to collectors' delight, BMR1959 offers two male dolls that, in Dolldom's opinion, almost steal the show with a series of firsts for Ken doll aficionados: a rooted man bun and a beat face. About time, we say! The dolls feature the new Made to Move body that gives them many posing options.
In this Dolldom exclusive, BMR1959 Ken dolls define iconic. If you haven't yet, check them out. They are perfect fun for today and will be referential in the not-so-distant future. Congratulations to Mattel and Carlyle Nuera for breaking boundaries and creating really handsome dolls.
