Someone Finally Made An Average-Size Barbie Doll: Here It Is

Nickolay Lamm is a graphic designer and researcher. He decided to take on the monumental task of designing an average-sized Barbie, which he named “Lammily”.

Nickolay launched his crowdfunding page and project and is hoping that enough people get behind it to make sure that this becomes a reality.

According to Lamm, Lammily promotes realistic beauty standards.

Lamm says that this fashion doll is ready for production.

A highly detailed and very accurate 3D digital prototype of Lammily has been created. The manufacturer will use this model to make the physical doll.

I’ve been consulting with Robert Rambeau, former Vice President of Manufacturing at Mattel, who has offered his experience and expertise in selecting a highly qualified manufacturer.

I need your help to cover the costs of tooling and molding, and to meet the manufacturer’s minimum order quantity.

Help promote this project here. TC mark
