Barbie and Lammily – naked


I’ve always thought Barbie was really thin and  her body shape and physical agility unachievable as a role model for women brought up with her as their best friend. But, Barbie has been an image changer. There are Barbie women everywhere – of every nationality! We copied Barbie. Are we stuck with her?

There has been a lot of talk about the issue of body image, especially with women.  There’s also been a lot of Barbie trashing, an easy target what with the doll’s obvious impossible proportions which are totally unlike the impossible proportions of many of our models and actresses, and never, ever shown as ideal in the media.  But Barbie is a doll meant for children, so parents especially have been griping about this since Barbies were first created. (The idea of the doll came from an “adult toy” for bachelor parties.  I can’t understand their complaints at all.)  So anyway, one would think they’d be happy when finally, toy companies started making dolls that approach a more natural likeness to a real human body.

So there’s  a new doll out – called Lammily. Who’d remember SUCH a name? But you never know.

To cut a long story short, here is Barbie and here is Lammily – naked.

What do you think?

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

  1. Shock, horror. I thought they were all born with clothes on. Although I don’t know why because I never had one.
    My only doll was a very chubby baby that didn’t actually do anything. And I gave it away in a mad moment of generosity anyway.
