Night of the hearts!

  This Ken (Pictured Right), in my opinion, was the best head mold made.   A lot of collector's refer to this  as the "Tom Cruise" Ken. It is a 1991 Ken head mold.  Most of the head molds being used were modified Alan's or later, just plain Alan.  Was Ken going through an identity crisis? It's one   side of Ken we like to see...the   romantic side.  The story begins on the night of the hearts and Barbie  & Ken believe in magic.  He hands her a bouquet and as they touch magical hearts appear on their clothing.  They keep it their secret.

Secret Hearts Ken doll is also available in a gift set with Secret Hearts Barbie doll.  The Secret Hearts Gift Set Ken doll is completely different than the single version.  In this set, Ken is dressed in a completely different outfit and  a   modified Alan head mold is used...and he was BLONDE! This gift set was available in wholesale clubs, and is VHTF.
