Lammily doll is the "normal" Barbie, made to look like a typical 19-year-old
And coming soon, an extension pack that will allow you to add blemishes
There’s a girl trying to look like a Barbie doll and now there’s a doll that’s trying to look more like a real teen.
Photos of "normal" Barbie made the rounds on Wednesday and yes, if you buy the stickers, you can put zits on her face. In a report by TIME, Lammily doll creator Nickolay Lamm said, "[A] lot of toys make kids go into fantasy, but why don't they show real life is cool? It's not perfect, but it's really all we have. And that's awesome."
The project is crowd-funded, meaning that Lamm had to sell the idea to people. Apparently, people like the idea of a less perfect Barbie and the toys are now a real product. In January, Lamm will be releasing stickers that will allow toy owners to add acne, freckles, moles, and even stretch marks on the doll.
Lammily dolls aren’t for sale here in the Philippines...yet. We can just maybe feel better that someone made a doll that doesn’t potentially plant the idea that people are supposed to have impossibly tiny waists.
