'Normal' Barbie: The Doll With The Proportions Of An Average Woman

14/08/2014 16:40 | Updated 20 May 2015

Meet the Lammily doll aka the "normal" Barbie. While official Barbie manufacturer Mattel is trying to make their toy doll appeal to the modern woman by giving her a power suit, a smart phone and turning her into an entrepreneur, Nickolay Lamm has simply given his creation the body proportions of the "average" 19-year-old.

"A lot of people asked where they could buy normal Barbie," Lamm said. "But no one could buy it because it didn't exist."

Lamm aims to raise $95,000 to begin production of the Lammily doll that has a "real" woman's proportions and which champions the tagline: "Average is beautiful."

Not only is Lammily (surely he could've come up with a better name than that?) bigger than your bog standard Barbie, she wears minimal makeup, promotes an active lifestyle and solves world hunger.

While we're certainly pleased to see there could be a more realistic doll on the toy market, can solving world hunger can ever be classed as "average"?
