Here’s a great piece from Time about Nickolay Lamm’s new Lammily doll. Lammily is a Barbie-type doll that looks realistic, or as the kids who first tested her out put it, “She looks like my sister.” The doll is proportioned more like a typical teenager, complete with optional acne, moles, and scars. If you’re someone who has worried about presenting your daughter with highly unrealistic body images, you’ll appreciate Lammily. The video of the childrens’ reactions to the doll is especially interesting to watch. After seeing it, I understand better why my daughters’ most beloved fashion dolls were the ones who looked most like them.
