This Real-Girl Doll Comes With Stretch Marks, Acne, and Cellulite
Little girls all over the world aspire to be like Barbie — blonde, incredibly thin, and covered in flawless makeup. The truth of the matter is that those kind of beauty standards are totally unrealistic and unachievable. Toy maker Nickolay Lamm wanted to prove that reality is actually very cool, so he created the Lammily doll. This "normal" version of Barbie promotes realistic beauty standards because she is made according to the typical body proportions of a 19-year-old girl (for the record, we still think she has a hot bod). She even comes complete with an extended sticker pack that includes stretch marks, cellulite, and acne that you can place on the doll.
This kind of doll will undoubtedly affect the body image ideas of young girls. If Barbie existed, she would have to walk on all fours because her feet are so small and she would have major back problems because of her disproportionate chest. Lammily is very much a real girl who is beautiful in a way that many young women will find relatable — they can see her beauty in themselves. If you're looking for a Christmas present for a little lady in your life this year, we're thinking you should grab Lammily.
