Allan - He's Ken's "Buddy"


Allan Sherwood was the first buddy doll created for Ken. The vintage Allan doll first came on the market in 1964. His creation mirrored the creation of Barbie's pal, Midge. Allan was advertised as Midge's "boyfriend".
Yeah ... just like Marcus Bachmann is advertised as Michele's "husband".

Nice try, Mattel.

Secret lovers yeah
That’s what we are
We should not be together
But we can’t let go, no, no
‘Cause we love each other so

I had an Allan doll! I wasn't allowed a Ken doll. I guess by the time I was 8 my mother decided that the boy dolls had not caused mass hysteria amongst girls so it was okay.
