Real Girl

Hello God!

Thank You for my daughter. My daughter is the greatest gift from the Sky. I love her endlessly. As a mother I want to see my child happy and healthy. We love to play together and our favorite game is in fashion designer. We create a clothing for a dolls, and Barbie, of course, goes the first in our waiting list. Girls are girls.

“Men are self-confident because they grow up identifying with super-heroes. Women have bad self-images because they grow up identifying with Barbie,” Rita Rudner says and I agree with her. Barbie doll can be a nightmare for mindful parents.

Artist Nickolay Lamm has made Barbie over, using an average 19-year-old girl’s body dimensions. Oh, I am happy to see the news.

While the original Barbie has measurements of 36-18-33, Lamm’s Barbie is a much healthier 32-31-33.

The differences are clearly visible. Real girl doll’s neck is almost twice as wide as the original, with shorter legs and a slightly smaller head.

The artist and researcher set out to prove whether his realistic Barbie would still be as marketable as her infamous original. He photographed his model Barbie next to her original, photoshopping his work to make her coloring, packaging and clothing like the typical doll.

Speaking about his latest work, the artist said: “So, if there’s even a small chance of Barbie in its present form negatively influencing girls, and if Barbie looks good as an average sized woman in America, what’s stopping Mattel from making one?”

I would buy the real girl’s size doll for my daughter. Mattel, please, think about the idea! I am sure a lot of parents will be grateful worldwide.

Thank you for sharing with me this moment and our parent’s worries and hopes.
