Move over Barbie, there's a new doll in town that is making headlines.
This is Lammily and she's being called "Average Barbie."
Her body shape is based on averages of data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
You can see in the above image that she's shorter and a little wider than the traditional Barbie.

The creator of the doll is Nikolay Lamm per the article.
Can’t wait for Lesbian Barbie to hit the market....
Shouldn’t it be Trayvette or Lakisha?
Hmmmm....both of their heads look too big to me.
Her body shape is based on averages of data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control

The fact that WE are paying for such stupid data bothers me more than the name.
Of course, ‘they’ will say ‘we are paying them anyway, at least they are doing something’.
Doesn’t the ‘Center for Disease Control’ have a virus or something to track down and make better use of their time and OUR money?
Wonder if Congress voted on funding this particular study?
Buy bi Barbie...
and First Lady Barbie has the traditional height and 4 x hip size...cuz it’s healthy
Hate to use an enemy website but the story nonetheless is there where this Ukrainian young lady has tried to be the image of Barbie the doll, I looked at the pictures and anything more about being on a “Breatharian” diet or lifestyle is beyond me. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/28/breatharian-barbie-valeria-lukyanova_n_4873706.html#slide=896364
Retro-Barbie: Now with reduced silicone.
Apparently the Barbie Doll though is way too skinny from what I hear. A more realistic approach with this other doll for girls doesn’t sound like a bad idea to me. This Nikolay fellow may make some bucks on it, not sure if Lammily is the best name, maybe.
Where’s Ken with his potbelly and receding hairline? :)
Is the government not supposed to keep statistics on biometric trends in its population? Just ignore the fact that so many people are getting fat or have diabetes or heart disease? Just do away with government-funded medical research altogether?
Your concern strikes me as a little over the top and a lot foolish.
The side-view ‘average’ Barbie looks grotesquely fat.
Obese is the new normal.
