The "Lammily" doll has the proportions of an average American 19-year-old. Can she beat Mattel for a slice of the toy market?

A good idea to make a more realistic female doll for little girls.

I always laughed at Barbie's boobies. I could never figure out how, with no waist or hips, she didn't just topple over. My GI Joe didn't like her anyway.

My daughters and granddaughter did not play with Barbie dolls. I'm not sure about this though. While the original Barbie dolls were misshapen, this one seems to be also. How about giving a range of shapes and let the kids choose their own.

The original Barbie wasn't bad until they made her look like a trashy floozie, it has been all downhill from there. Between the trash toys and slutty clothing they make for young girls now our society seems pretty sad to buy that junk. This is a little more realistic but some of these proportions are a bit weird too. If she is a typical 19 years old her boobs wouldn't be sagged down like that either.

I used to play with Barbie, Midge and Ken and G.I.Joe when I was a kid........back when it was okay to play with all kinds of toys

Never liked Barbie and still don't but this new one is certainly an improvement. It had no where to go but up.

If little girls grow up playing with a doll that looks more like an average human woman, it might help stem the tide of poor body image and eating disorders which are epidemic today.

I know I would have liked this doll better than I did Barbie.

Interesting that according to some of the pictures, this doll is nearly as tall as a two-storey house...

Averages are not average (statistically and anatomically speaking). There are so many things anatomically and statistically (and even psychologically) incorrect with that doll that there's not enough space to address them here. Also, it has taken homogeneity to such an extreme that it, too, looks bizarre (and unattractive in many ways -- she doesn't even have a nice smile ... is that necessary?).

In short, here's the real problem: there is no such thing as A woman or A doll or A (AN) anything. What's wrong with dolls of all shapes, sizes, skin and hair colors (with legitimate recognizable features), etc.? The toy manufacturers would make a ton more money! Matchbox didn't make only one car, because ... let's see ... oh, yeah ... there were many types of cars.

In any event, averages, as stated, don't necessarily yield something normal -- for a better example, do you really want to see a family with 2.3 children? Wow, would hate to be the 0.3 kid in that group!

PS: Not endorsing Barbie, other unrealistic expectations, haters of any sort, etc. It's just that newer or even "replaced" doesn't necessarily mean better or anything approaching being worthwhile. Sometimes nothing is better than something inferior -- which will, by the way, force the manufacturers to make something worthwhile!

This is a great idea, finally someone with sense making a more real body style doll for little girls, much better than twiggy Barbie.
Thanks Carrie.
