An Update on the Barbie Factor Series

The Huffington Post has a very interesting article on what is being called a normal Barbie. You can read the article here

Nickolay Lamm has now created a new option. It's a doll with realistic proportions scaled exactly to the average 19-year-old American woman's measurements. In the photo above the doll is posed next to Barbie. Elle magazine has an article here about the fundraising Lamm did for his project.

There is a chart comparing Barbie proportions to real women on my blog here and I wrote about the body image link in 2011 here. I wrote about the Barbie makeup issue here.
