As part of a Valentine's Day promotion, Ken will deliver a special cupcake from famous New York bakery Magnolia designed to win her back.(http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20110119-716970.html)
To complement the story line, Mattel is introducing a new, talking Ken doll, complete with a hairdo modeled after teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, and on Valentine's Day will begin selling a Barbie and Ken doll set, which will retail for $5 for a limited time.
Mattel has also designed Barbie hair that can be fed into any inkjet printer and customized with any number of designs, providing personalized clip-on hair for both Barbie and her owner.
