It’s bad enough young girls are inundated with the unrealistic body images of fashion models every day. But even super models don’t — and can’t — look like Barbie, the most unrealistic body image of all time (not that Barbie’s design team seems to care. They blame moms, not their dolls, for girls’ body issues).
“I created ‘Normal Barbie’ because I wanted to show that average is beautiful,” Lamm says about his experiment. His “normal Barbie” became a mockup for a type of doll: Lammily, a fashion doll that promote realistic beauty standards and a healthy lifestyle.
