I've written before about the "Lammily" doll. It's a Barbie-type doll that was computer modelled using more realistic proportions of a 19-year-old woman. In March of this year its creator, Nickolay Lamm, announced a Kickstarter to bring the doll to market. After raising more than five times his $95,000 crowdfunding goal, Lammily is ready to hit the Christmas market.
But what would a Barbie-like doll be without accessories to buy? So Mr. Lamm is planning to release an accessory pack in the new year. But instead of swimsuits or dream houses, Lammily gets cellulite, scars, stretch marks and zits.
The creator told Time, “I wanted to show that reality is cool. And a lot of toys make kids go into fantasy, but why don’t they show real life is cool? It’s not perfect, but it’s really all we have. And that’s awesome.”
