PITTSBURGH — The “Normal Barbie” is now available for purchase, and children can soon add stretch marks, acne and a touch of cellulite to their dolls.
Last year, Nickolay Lamm created the Lammily Doll to mirror the average 19-year-old girl’s measurements as taken by the Center for Disease Control.
Lamm wanted to create a doll that would teach children what women actually looked like, so he digitally designed a doll that represented a woman who is 5-feet 4-inches and 165 pounds.
"I feel that, right now, dolls are very 'perfect' looking, when, in real life, few of us have perfect skin," Lamm told The Huffington Post in an email. "So, why not give dolls a 'real treatment?' Things like acne, stretch marks and cellulite are a natural part of who we are."
Lamm released his doll just in time for the holidays, but the sticker pack won’t be available until January.
The sticker pack includes cellulite, stretch marks, freckles, acne, glasses, temporary tattoo, cast, mosquito bites and dirt stains, according to USA Today.
25,000 Lammily Dolls are available for $24.99, and the sticker pack stands at $5.99, according to Time.
Lamm even included injury-laden stickers.
“Look, we all get boo boos and scratches,” Lamm told Time. "Life isn’t perfect, we all sometimes fall down but we get back up.”
