Normal Barbie: Photos Imagine Iconic Doll With "Real" Measurements

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Meet “normal” Barbie!

Using a 3-D computer model, an artist created photos of the classic Mattel doll using the proportions of the average 19-year-old American woman.

Here's what a "real" Barbie would look like:

  • Normal Barbie Photos
  • Normal Barbie Pics

Artist Nickolay Lamm of MyDeals (dot) com created the rendering of Barbie as your average girl, not the tall, impossibly skinny version sold for decades.

Demi Lovato praised the "new" Barbie on Twitter, and based on the reaction these drawings have received on the web, she likely won't be the last to.

“I created normal Barbie because I wanted to show that average is beautiful,’’ Lamm told Today.

“If the average-looking Barbie looks this good and if there's even a chance of Barbie negatively influencing young girls, why not make one?”

Lamm noted that there are “different interpretations” of what is considered “average," but he used official CDC figures to make it “pretty close.’’

He cites research suggesting Barbie may lead to heightened body dissatisfaction among girls, unhealthy eating behaviors such as desire to eat less.

Not likely the case with "Normal" Barbie, however. Girl's got BACK!

What do you think? Do you like the more "normal" looking Barbie?

I think they should make Barbies of all colors and styles= fat, short, tall, thin. Since so much of our population is now overweight - I think they should make an overweight Barbie with a piece of fried chicken in her hand while standing on a scale.
