Meet ‘Normal Barbie’: She now has added cellulite, stretch marks and acne

As it stands most of us know that if the iconic Barbie doll were real she'd be forced to walk on all fours and would be physically incapable of lifting her over-sized head! Over the years the famous doll from Matel has received a lot of criticism for her unrealistic body type. With this in mind artist and designer Nickolay Lamm decided to create “normal Barbie.” Named Lammily this doll has the realistic body proportions of a 19-year-old girl, and can have tattoos, warts, acne, stretchmarks, and other realistic skin flaws. A sticker pack that comes with the doll allows kids to apply all the sorts of skin imperfections that real people have, teaching kids that they don’t have to aspire to or value the unrealistic body images promoted by Barbie or Ken dolls. And judging by the reactions of the 2nd-graders that Lamm showed his doll to, the message has been received with open arms! “I'm just trying to create a product which shows that reality is beautiful,” he explains. “It's not always perfect, but it's all we have, and it's awesome!” Featuring: Atmosphere Where: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States When: 20 Nov 2014 Credit: Supplied by
