Sorry, Barbie, but there’s a new doll in town, and she has measurements that actually exist on a human body. Lammily is a 19-year-old girl who can have tattoos, freckles, stretch marks, and broken bones like the rest of us. Lammily creator Nickolay Lamm is on a mission to show young children that average is beautiful. No longer do we have to give our children dolls with impossible body proportions. Whether you like it or not, handing a child a Barbie is like handing them a bundle of body issues they’ll have to carry throughout their life.
