OK I am SO hyped about this doll! Not only does Lammily have the standard body proportions of a healthy 19 year old woman, but she is a world traveler and looks gorgeous!
I first heard about this project, which was crowdfunded and backed by over 13,620 people (including me!), about a year ago. Nickolay Lamm got the idea for a doll with normal proportions, posted it online, got the funds, and now here we are. We finally have an attractive, well-made doll that has a realistic body size and shape.
I am so passionate and excited about this project and I so want to see it succeed and grow into the future. I believe it’s very important for young women and men to see themselves represented positively in the shows they watch, music they listen to, books they read, and toys they play with. I believe that in even a small way, seeing “yourself” represented in either a positive way or negative way will help shape you as you grow up.
I love that if you browse the clothing pieces online that you can buy for Lammily, they are named after places in the world that Lammily has traveled to. Yay for a brave, adventurous representation of young women. Also the clothes are attractive but don’t bare all. Gosh. I’m gushing. I’m just so in love!
Another cool thing: you can purchase “Marks” for your doll, which are basically stick-ons that you can apply to your doll in order to make her more like you. Some of the stick ons include: casts, scrapes, acne, tattoos, or even stretch marks.
Seriously. Go check out this doll and consider adding her to your child’s toy box. Or, maybe you think that having super tall skinny dolls is no biggy anyway? Tell me your thoughts!
