The slim waist, long blonde hair and small feet all resemble the classic Barbie doll that society has come to know and almost try and look like. But, there’s a new doll in town and she’s taking over on the looks.
A new “average sized” doll is hitting the market, and just in time for the holidays. The doll is replicated to look like the average 19- year-old girl body. Artist Nickolay Lamm created this doll and it is available online at lammily.com for $25. The doll even has acne, cellulite and stretch marks stickers you could buy to put on the doll to make flaws look flawless.
Lamm also released a video of second graders playing with the video. Some of their responses are encouraging to see that at such a young age, they can see real beauty.
Back in May 2013, Lamm Photoshopped some pictures of Barbie and other dolls with fresh faces. He wanted to show that dolls- and women in general- don’t need make up to feel beautiful.
