Barbie Has Some Realistic Competition With The Lammily Doll This Holiday Season


(PCM) Finally, there is a doll are the market that is sure to give Barbie a run for her money, with her realistic proportions and average size measurements called Lammily.

The doll was created by 26-year old  Nickolay Lamm who launched a crowd-funding campaign last March to bring his vision of the “anti-Barbie” into production. The Lammily doll has hips, thighs, and a backside that are proportioned to appear like an average 19-year old woman.

Lamm came up for the idea for the doll in hopes that it would urge people to forget about their bodies in general and focus more on what they can do rather than what they look like. Lamm met his initial crowd-funding goal of $90,000 in just one day and raised over $500,000 in less than a month.

Of course, Lamm’s production time for the Lammily doll was perfect, as the dolls are now available for purchase just in time for the holiday shopping season. The dolls have fashion outfits and accessories available and are said to be a bit more “normal” than those made for Barbie. The outfits and accessories also celebrate cultural diversity among women.

Customers can also purchase reusable vinyl stickers to add “imperfections” to the doll such as acne, stretch marks, freckles, and temporary tattoos.

The dolls are selling for $25 a piece and feature the tag line “Time To Get Real”. Thus far, over 22,000 Lammily dolls have been ordered and those will begin to be shipped out next week.

Lam also adds, that he has plans to create a realistically proportioned boy doll sometime in 2015.
