The celebrity toy-couple that shocked the world with their split after 43 years together could be reuniting this year, but only if 'Sweet Talkin' Ken' succeeds in wooing Barbie back.
Ken is on a mission this year. He wants Barbie back.
He's sporting a new Justin Bieber-like look, and a new name: Sweet Talkin Ken.
And he's not holding back in his quest to woo Barbie back — by Valentine's Day.
Here's the scoop.
Don't be surprised if you see billboards in New York and Los Angeles with Ken professing his renewed love for his ladydoll, declaring "Barbie, you are the only doll for me."
Even better, "Barbie, we may be plastic but our love is real."
Ken and Barbie fans may also have picked up on the famous exes flirting on Facebook, or noted that Ken checked in on Foursquare at the famous Magnolia Bakery in New York to get special cupcakes for his favorite girl.
Ken's thinks he's the ultimate boyfriend but Barbie fans will have to wait a few more weeks to find out if he succeeds in his quest.
Breakup that rocked the world: Ken and Barbie shocked their fans — and the world — when the doll world's "golden couple" went splitsville in 2004.
The couples' romance began 50 years ago when they met on the set of their first television commercial together in 1961.
