doll_1_fix-600x600 Meet Lammily! Lammily is the newest Barbie in town! Except she's not your typical Barbie. She has acne, cellulite, scars and most importantly a normal body! There's no stick-thin waist and Size D breasts here. Lammily has been nicknamed "The Normal Barbie" because she looks like a typical young women. The designer made Lammily using the measurements of your average 19-year-old. That means she has normal thighs, a real waist and her feet actually stand on the ground! Not only does Lammily have a more realistic body, but she has imperfections too, thanks to Lammily Marks! The marks are stickers that you can put on Lammily. You can give her freckles, pimples, cellulite, stretch marks, scrapes, scars, stitches, bruises, moles and mosquito bites! Lammily is just like a normal woman! Now, is Lammily the perfect doll for kids? No! She's still quite skinny. Her hair is pretty perfect despite the fact that all woman have bad hair days. Her imperfections aren't permanent. And she doesn't represent how ethnically diverse women are. But Lammily is a step in the right direction. Even though we still have a ways to go with Lammily, young kids are so excited by her. This adorable video shows a grade two class meeting Lammily. The quotes are heartwarming. One little girl says "I don't have other dolls like this, it looks real." Hopefully Lammily is just the first of many realistic dolls! [HTML1] Photo courtesy of Lammily LLC
