Watch: Children react to new ‘normal Barbie’

I grew up playing with Barbie and I have to say, I wish that this doll was around when I was younger.

(CNN) — It began for Nickolay Lamm as a question: What would Barbie look like if she had the dimensions of an average woman?

His answer came in the form of the Lammily doll: a shorter, broader, brunette version of the idealistic blond Mattel doll.

Now Lammily is ready to make her debut, complete with a sticker pack that features pimples, moles, cellulite and scars that can be applied.

“I feel she looks so real, so ordinary, that you don’t focus on what she looks like but … on what she does,” he said by telephone on Wednesday.

That perspective helped propel Lamm’s crowd-funding effort to build the doll.

The 26-year-old toy maker said the dolls will be mailed to his crowd-funding backers no later than Black Friday, the traditional kickoff for holiday shopping. Thousands more, which were preordered, will also be shipped before the holidays, he said.
