Generations of girls have grown up playing with Barbie–with her tiny waist and unrealistically shaped feet. Finally, someone has asked the question: what if Barbie dolls looked more like the people who played with them? Last summer, artist Nickolay Lamm decided to show the world what Barbie might look like if she had the CDC measurements of an average 19 year-old woman in America. Fast forward to present-day, and the idea of the ‘average’ Barbie is gaining momentum. Tell us what you think of the design by voting in the Inhabitots poll.
