“The ‘Palm Beach Sugar Daddy Ken’ is actually part of the adult Barbie Collector Line,” the spokeswoman said. “It is targeted toward adults.”
And before anyone thinks the “Sugar Daddy” title refers to an older man with a younger lover, Mattel says that there’s a much more innocent explanation.
“The little dog’s name is actually Sugar,” said the Mattel spokeswoman. “That’s where the name comes from. He’s Sugar’s daddy, as a reference to the dog.”
Oh, okay. Well then. I stand corrected.
