The new Barbie Doll Gets Her Period
Remember the days when you would walk the doll aisle looking for the perfect addition to your collection? You would admire each doll until that “special” one sparkled under the florescent lights of the store. Yeah…well now the Barbie aisle just got weird.
Artist Nickolay Lamm has been on a mission to produce a realistic line of Barbie dolls know as Lammily dolls. These dolls are targeted to use more realistic body parts. No more size 00 waist and big boobs. The line of dolls is great, but the new accessory the brand just launched has some moms freaking out.
Lammily dolls just launched the Period Party accessory kit. The kit, which retails for $10.00 includes:
- 1 educational pamphlet
- 1 pair of panties for the Lammily doll
- 18 reusable colored pad and liner stickers
- 1 calendar and dot sticker pack to track Lammily’s periods
“On average, a woman between the ages 12 and 51 spends a total of 6 years on her menstrual period,” reads the description on the company website. “Yet, while being a huge part of female life, this perfectly healthy natural process is still surrounded with taboos. Let’s start an open and positive conversation about our periods.”
Where was this when we got our first period?
