Target Halloween Party Gift Set

What makes this GS so special to collectors is the length of Ken's hair.  In the box it is pulled back into a pony- tail, but open the box and let it down and it falls to the middle of his back! This is the longest hair Ken has EVER had.  Even the Harley Davidson hair is shorter. What also makes it special is the fact Ken is wearing a gold hoop earring! This SE is still pretty easy to come by.  I kept one set in the box and pulled another out and re-dressed him for contrast against the mostly "clean-cut" loose Kens I display.

Barbie and Ken are attractively dressed for a Halloween party in matching pirate costumes, complete with little trick-or-treat bags and little wine goblets inside the box! The box completes the Halloween Party theme, with pumpkins, witches, a ghost, a black cat, and spider webs adorning the inside and clear plastic of the box. The back of the box reads...It’s a Halloween costume party. And shiver-me-timbers! The back of the box also has instructions for your own costume parade party, including a costume party invitation (it says that doll-sized invitations are included inside the box), and a certificate for Best Costume to award at your party!!
