The man who made a Barbie with “typical” human dimensions is trying to release his own range of dolls to give children more realistic influences.
Last October we covered Nickolay Lamm’s work creating a Barbie that using the dimensions of an average 19-year-old American woman, who is shorter, thicker-waisted, shorter-necked and much less likely to topple over bust-first than the Mattel Doll.
While Lamm obviously couldn’t market the “realistic” Barbie, he has created his own doll, Lammily, designed to prove that “Average is Beautiful.” He notes:
Lammily Promotes Realistic Beauty Standards: The doll is made according to typical human body proportions.
Lammily is Fun: She has articulated wrists, knees, elbows, and feet.
Lammily Has Style: Lammily wears minimal makeup. Her wardrobe isn’t composed of typical clothing for dolls – she is dressed with striking simplicity.
