This Barbie's Got Back
See what happens when an artist puts the freakish dimensions of our favorite plastic babe into real-world proportion
That's what artist Nikolay Lamm did when he scaled down the average 19-year-old's measurements and created a "normal" version of Barbie.
The result? With the exception of the blonde hair and vacant stare, she looks totally different and 100 percent adorable -- the kind of doll we'd happily give our nieces to play with. (She also looks like she'd be easier to dress. Anyone remember trying to jam the "real" Barbie into a pair of leggings?) Lamm says he thinks this version of the doll could have a positive impact on little girls and hopes Mattel jumps on board.
