Realistic ‘Barbie’ Dolls Are Ready for Production

by Conner Flynn

I don’t have a daughter, but if I did, I would never let her play with Barbie dolls. There’s already enough stuff out there that messes with their self esteem. They need a better doll role model.

As you may have heard, Barbie doll artist Nickolay Lamm designed a new doll, using the Center for Disease Control’s actual average measurements for a 19-year old girl. A more realistic girl. Now he’s back with a crowdfunding project to manufacture his realistically-proportioned¬†Lammily dolls.

A pledge of $25(USD) or more will get you a First Edition Lammily doll. Nickolay has already nearly quadrupled his modest $95,000 funding goal in just a few days. That should tell you the kind of demand there is for such a doll. This one actually has curves and isn’t just a bean-pole with a tiny waist. This is awesome stuff for the young women of our planet.

    You obviously don’t have kids. Forbidding them to play with something or enjoy something due to your own hangups are why kids grow up messed up in the head. Barbies are fine. They encourage girls to dream big. The doll has had more jobs and done more things than any GI Joe. Maybe the fashions are out of hand but it’s not like Bratz or other hyper-sexualized dolls. So if/when you have a daughter, sit down and play Barbie’s with her. See how detrimental it is to her psyche and if you can’t do that…wait until she’s 18 and explain to her why she was never allowed to play with one of the most popular and easily accessible toys on the planet. Then you will see what that kind of parenting brings out of a child.
