I am all behind this. I hear my nieces bemoan their bodies and constantly comparing them to airbrushed images. If they had this doll when they were younger, I think it would have helped. I have a little girl now and I would buy her 10 of these if I could.

I happen to be a huge Barbie fan-I used to make clothes for her that I sold on eBay-most to grown women! That said, I would buy my daughter one of each.

I played with trucks! I'm 6'1" and have been taller than every other girl I've known. I was teased about my height, saying I was a 6 foot tall Barbie's not a doll I would get for anyone. Good idea though.

Does anyone know where to go to back this project?

When they first showed this doll next to Barbie, I thought she was fat. But as the video went on, I began to see her as normal. Just goes to show how the media can distort our perceptions.

Excellent idea! However, I think they should make barbie dolls in all shapes & sizes. Same for Ken, & kids as we all come indifferent shapes & sizes. Bravo!

If your litle girl thinks that she ought to grow up to look like a 10" plastic doll, rather than the actual live women around her, you've got one delusional kid on your hands.
Seek professional help.

I never really though about Barbie as being some bad, sexist influence in my life. That's more of an adult's brain at work. It was a toy that I played with when I visited my cousin. I was more into stuffed animals, cars, and superheroes. I never grew up to look like Barbie - nor did my cousin - or worry that I didn't look like Barbie. More disappointing to me as an adult is that I still can't afford to drive a hot car, like the ones I played with in the dirt. Talk about setting me up for a lifetime of regret...thanks a lot, Hot Wheels! I did work very hard to earn a black belt in the martial arts, so I'm kinda living the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dream. I think this kid's toy dust up has more to do with marketing (for a cause).

Cool! I think this new doll actually looks a lot better. I never had Barbies because of the expense, but I probably would have liked this one better. Mostly I played with plush animals. :)

I was 10 years old when Barbie came out, so my mother told me I was to old for dolls then, so I never had one, but I buy them for my GDs as Barbie is beautiful and a Fashion Doll. I wouldn't buy the other doll.

My daughters never collected Barbies, and I was glad because they are so unrealistic. I love your idea of showing that average is beautiful.

I wasn't a big Barbie player. I had Midge just because she was different.
But I'm not sure people had Barbie to be like her but to dream through her. The perfect guy, the perfect house, the perfect car, a horse and so on...
It's like the reality shows, they are train wrecks to most of us but to many they live their dreams through them.
I do think Lammily will be the kind of doll a young girl could play with and associate more with so maybe that alone will change that "dream" thinking into reality. Perhaps she can live the real life instead of the Hollywood type living that Barbie did.
It's nice to see a guy that was so concerned about this, very thoughtful and caring on his part.
After all... many men want the Barbies of the world don't they?
I hope Lammily does well.

This is a nice doll and the idea is sound. But I am still a die-hard Barbie fan. I even made clothes for her and sold on Ebay as well as for many nieces and my granddaughters. Was it hard sometimes with her proportions? Yes!

Have you thought about getting onto Shark Tank? This is the sort of thing they'd fight over.

I love this so much I just pre-ordered for my nieces.
