Does it go with the Barbie play set... :lol:
Some pictures of the stove will get you some better answers...
The internals will tell if it is a hand fed or stoker...
That will determine what type of coal it needs...
Pics of the grates, shaker, loading door, hopper if it has one...
No hits on Google for the stove...

A Ken Coal Stove was made in Hanover, MA, by a small stove company. It takes nut coal.

I love my Chubby too! Larry T., the original manufacturer, has started back in business again and is making the stoves again.

You can also buy parts for your stove.
As far as the Ken Coal stove, I don't have any pictures of it, but it was a nice little coal stove, also. Basically a round cast iron pot surrounded by a rolled steel sleeve, nondescript, cast iron top, and (approx) 10" wide decorative nickle sleeve that wrapped around the top with the name Ken-Coal on it. It had a steel spring door in the front and it vented from the rear top. Very inexpensive but it heated very well.
