We told you last July about a Barbie doll that was designed to look like the average woman, a "Normal Body Barbie" doll.
Pittsburgh artist Mickolay Lamm gave Barbie real body proportions and Wednesday he announced that real body Barbie will be for sale - eventually.
The way Barbie's body is now, when scaled up to human size, she would have unhealthy measurements of an 18" waist, 33" hips and a 36" bust. Compared with the average 19-year-old girl's frame of 31" waist, 33" hips and a 32" bust. Lamm took the measurements from the Center for Disease Control and prevention (CDC).
Lamm launched his own Kickstarter campaign to raise $95,000 to begin production on a doll that has a real woman’s proportions. The line is called Lammily and its tagline is: “Average is beautiful.”
He's got quite a way to go to get to the start of production, so he's asking for people who believe in his project to financially back him up.
