American designer Nickolay Lamm has created a ‘Normal Barbie’ with an average proportions of a 19-year-old girl. Her name is ‘Lammily’ and she differs a lot from the Barbie that so many girls are used to play with.
Lamm’s doll has more realistic proportions.
She is shorter…
…and wears less make up.
Nickolay says “Lammily” is an alternative to dolls with unrealistic beauty standards that dominate the market, like Barbie, or the hypersexualized Bratz Dolls.
He believes that his normal Barbie is going to be a new trend for promotion healthy lifestyle & happier life.
“My plan is for Lammily to come in different ethnicities and body shapes. But all future body shapes will be of healthy typical women.” – says Lamm in his interview to BuzzFeed.
“…so that our girls will grow up and become happier & stronger women, truly confident and proud of their own bodies.”
“Average is beautiful” – says Nickolay, the creator of ‘Normal Barbie’.
But only kids would be a judge. And will kids want to play with “average”-looking dolls? – still a big question.
