Nickolay Lamm crowdfunds a new toy doll that looks like an actual woman.

There has already been an online petition for plus-size versions of Barbie, but artist Nikolay Lamm has gone one step further and launched a crowdfunding campaign to create a Barbie doll that offers a realistic interpretation of women. Lammily is the real-world alternative to Barbie, a doll that is shorter, more curvaceous, and wears minimal makeup – all inline with the project's tagline of “average is beautiful.”

An accurate 3D digital prototype of Lammily has already been created, and now the artist is in search of funds to meet the manufacturer's minimum order quantity. It's clear people want to see the idea become a reality, as the crowdfunding campaign has already raised $60,000+ of its $95,000 goal with more than 20 days left to go.
