'Normal Barbie' Will Have Cellulite, Stretch Marks And Acne Add-Ons

Not only will "Normal Barbies" have the bodies of an average American woman -- their skin will also look something like "normal," too. An add-on pack will allow kids to give their dolls acne, cellulite, stretch marks and more.

Last year, artists and researcher Nickolay Lamm designed the original "Lammily" dolls, scaled to the measurements of the average 19-year-old woman, after becoming frustrated at how unrealistic Barbie's proportions are. His goal was to create a fun, appealing doll with natural-looking makeup and a casual, sporty wardrobe.

The dolls are now available for purchase, and buyers can pre-order an exciting extra -- a sticker package allowing kids to add removable "marks" to their dolls, ranging from artistic tattoos to cellulite and stretch marks to grass stains and scars.

"I feel that, right now, dolls are very 'perfect' looking, when, in real life, few of us have perfect skin," Lamm told The Huffington Post in an email. "So, why not give dolls a 'real treatment?' Things like acne, stretch marks, and cellulite are a natural part of who we are."

An estimated 50 to 90 percent of women will develop stretch marks in their lifetime, and over 90 percent of women have cellulite on their bodies. Acne is also incredibly common, with an estimated 80 percent of people experiencing an outbreak between the ages of 11 and 30.

Getting kids used to the idea that these things are completely normal and not "flaws" to be ashamed of can only be a good thing.
