Guess What? Kids Really Like Lammily, the Realistically Proportioned Doll

Not to kick Barbie when she's down or anything...

We were already excited about the Lammily doll that was built from the CDC average proportions of a 19-year-old woman by artist Nickolay Lamm, but seeing it in the hands of second graders who are happy to finally have a doll that represents them is just amazing. Now if we could just get some different skin colors…

Of course, many of their answers are just what you’d expect and obviously what the interviewer, Assistant Head of School Susan Miller, was looking for, but I dare you not to get a bit choked up when she asks the girls which doll they identify more with. Dare. You.
