In 1963 with the introduction of Midge Hadley (Barbie doll's friend), Allan Sherwood was being designed. Allan was conceived for three important reasons. First and foremost to target the "shared clothes" ideal with Ken, second for the double dating possibilities and lastly as a "buddy" to Ken. Mattel introduced Allan in the1964 along with Skipper, Barbie's sister. Allan was advertised as Ken's buddy and as Midge's boyfriend. He was quickly discontinued in 1965 the year the second version was released, but was available for sale in limited quantities until 1966
