There’s a “new normal” in the toy industry: the Lammily doll, which is basically what Barbie would look like if she actually had the measurements of an average 19-year-old woman. She comes with a sticker extension pack, complete with cellulite, freckles, acne and scars to make her seem that much more “real.” Creator Nickolay Lamm made this toy because, “I wanted to show that reality is cool. And a lot of toys make kids go into fantasy, but why don’t they show real life is cool? It’s not perfect, but it’s really all we have. And that’s awesome.” [TIME]
