A social love story: how Ken won Barbie (and customers) through paid, owned, and earned media

A social love story: how Ken won Barbie (and customers) through paid, owned, and earned media | Ken | Scoop.it

Fashion doll Barbie and her boyfriend, Ken, were made for each other. From his debut commercial in 1961, it seemed the two would be together forever. But in 2004, manufacturer Mattel (client) broke up the couple to focus on Barbie’s career development. By 2010, moms and older girls remembered Ken, but many younger girls weren’t as familiar with Barbie’s former beau.
