Designer Nickolay Lamm created Lammily, a new “realistic” doll for children, released as an add-on pack complete with acne, cellulite and stretch marks.
Lammily’s body is based on the average measurements of a 19-year-old woman in the US.
Lammily, who stands at 10.72 inches tall and wears relatively toned-down outfits and makeup compared with her Mattel counterpart, including a range of snug winter coats, denim shorts and an ombre shirt.
Unlike Barbie doll, whose constantly pointed legs would force her to walk on all fours if she were real, Lammily has articulated joints – reading to walk, run and play. Promotional shots of the doll on the official website even show her poised in a tricky plank yoga position.
From January, for $6 children can customize their dolls with marks commonly found on bodies of all shapes and sizes, including freckles, stretch marks, acne, moles, cellulite, and blushing cheeks for when Lammily is “embarrassed, shy, or anxious”.
Children can also adorn Lammily according to the success of her latest adventure, with stitches, scrapes and scratches, bruises, scars, mosquito bites, grass, dirt stains and even a cast featured in the pack. Temporary tattoos and stylish blue, thick-rimmed glasses are also included.
Barbie doll, which is made by Mattel, is flaunting her frame in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit‘s 50th anniversary issue that’s hitting stands on Tuesday.
Barbie will be featured alongside supermodels like Christie Brinkley and Brooklyn Decker as part of a campaign called Unapologetic.

According to multiple reports, Barbie will actually appear as a cover wrap on at least 1,000 copies of the issue, with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit magazine proclaiming the iconic figure: “The doll that started it all.”
“As a legend herself, and under constant criticism about her body and how she looks, posing . . . gives Barbie . . . and her fellow legends an opportunity to own who they are,” said Lisa McKnight, Mattel’s senior vice president of marketing.
The campaign is a departure for 55-year old Barbie, which has been both beloved as a plaything and criticized as an unrealistic standard of beauty for decades.
Real life Barbie Valeria Lukyanova caused an internet sensation – but also deep concern – when her cosmetically-enhanced looks turned her into a living doll.
Now she is joined by 24-year-old “Dominica” – real name Olga Oleynik – who also owes her shape and image to the surgeon’s knife.
“We met on the internet five years ago,” said Valeria Lukyanova, explaining that both come from the Ukrainian city of Odessa.
“We were curious about our similarities. We had the same hairstyle, make-up, and even dressed in a similar way. Our friends were sure that we were blood sisters.
“We are really sisters – but only in spiritual way. We have the same outlook and lifestyle.”

The pair have been holding lectures on spirituality at $75 a session. They use their looks to attract participants, it is claimed.
“We are planning to move to America soon. Dominica’s boyfriend is living in the US and my husband wants to start a business there too,” said Valeria Lukyanova.
“I am not going to be bored abroad, I’m often invited to photo-shoots and parties.”
When images of Valeria Lukyanova first started appearing, there were questions about whether she actually existed with her porcelain looks, minuscule waist and razor sharp features. Some claimed she must be a PhotoShop creation.
The model calls herself “the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-speaking internet”.
Her average day includes meditation, travel in her astral body, going to the gym while she admits her ideal dinner is to “make dinner for the man I love”.
Valeria Lukyonova, a Ukrainian model, is making waves in the US, not for her natural good looks however, but for her cosmetically-enhanced Barbie looks that have turned her into a living doll.
Valeria Lukyonova, 21, became an internet sensation after a video was released about the epic plastic surgery procedures she allegedly underwent to transform into a real-life Mattel doll.
Now Valeria Lukyonova has posed for V magazine’s latest “Girl Power” issue, with her doll-like proportions taking center-stage.
The model, who calls herself “the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-speaking internet” in the interview, has overly enhanced body proportions which aim to emulate that of Mattel’s doll, Barbie.
In the new issue, which goes on sale November 15, she describes her average day for those fascinated fans.
“In the morning I work on my face and I get a massage, then I spend some time on the Internet,” she says.
“I meditate and travel in my astral body, and after that I work out at the gym. I go for a walk with my best girlfriend, I get home, and I make dinner for the man I love.
“Then I spend some more time on the Internet, do some reading and meditating, and go to bed.”

While many people were skeptical of Valeria Lukyonova’s porcelain looks, wondering if she was a simply internet Photoshop creation, V magazine was able to track her down through an anonymous source.
The magazine writes: “Our source also claimed that the Security Service of Ukraine is having Lukyanova’s activities monitored. <<Be careful>>, we were warned. <<We’re worried for you and do not want you to suffer from her>>.”
Valeria Lukyonova, whose spiritual name is Amatue, tells V magazine that her “real job” is “a teacher at the School of Out-Of-Body Travel… an international school in which our instructors show students how to leave their physical body and travel in their spiritual body, where you can visit any place on the planet and in the universe”.
She adds: “I know that this is the future of mankind.”
