Sweet Talking Ken Doll

Sweet Talking Ken Doll: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

Do lil ones really need to be sweet talked? Some doll makers think they do. Meet a new version of Barbie's better half, the Sweet Talking Ken Doll ($19), who pretty much looks like Barbie (same blue eyes and pouty pink lips) but with a surfer-dude shag haircut. Sporting an awfully tight fitting shirt that reads Ultimate Boyfriend in multiple languages, this Ken doll, marketed to tots five and up, has the unique ability to "sweet talk" tots — with their own words.

Lil ones simply press a heart on Ken's shirt to record themselves saying whatever it is they'd like to hear from Ken himself. Kind of a bizarre concept: own your ultimate boyfriend and program him to say exactly what you want. What do you think?
