An artist has made a doll that recreates the look of Barbie based on the proportions of an average 19-year-old American female. Pittsburgh artist Nickolay Lamm made the doll because he “wanted to see if an average-sized Barbie had market potential.” His Barbie’s waist is 33 inches around, compared to the original’s 18-inch waist (if she were a real person). Her neck is nearly twice as wide, her legs shorter and her head a tiny bit smaller--and she still looks cute. “I’m pretty pleased with how the normal model looks, and was personally surprised by how well she turned out,” Lamm said.
