Having sons, I'm not sure but I would think this would help with self image. Report

So my poor self image comes from having a Barbie at 10 years old? Who knew! Report

Great job on changing the size. Now, can we get one without a ton of makeup? Why not teach girls that their natural beauty is perfect? Report

My mom wouldn’t let me have a Barbie because of her unrealistic proportions. “No one looks like that!” It didn’t make sense to me. I knew my Teddy Bear wasn’t a real bear. Although I loved my dolls I never thought they looked like real people.

Lucky for me Tammy was new on the market. Her smaller bust and wider waist were acceptable. The surprise was Barbie clothes fit. Like Barbie you could buy Tammy clothes (less expensive!). I liked Tammy better than Barbie because her face looked friendlier.

Tammy was manufactured by Ideal Toy Company from 1962-1967. At the time Ideal was the largest doll manufacturer. Money to produce Tammy wasn’t an issue. She wasn’t a big seller. Barbie has been a best seller for the past 56 years.

I hope Lammily is a huge success.

Great idea. And an idea that is timely. Report

I have never been a Barbie fan, but I would proudly buy one of these for every little girl (or boy who wanted one) I know! Report

I love this idea. The dolls are beautiful and an alternative to Barbie would be nice. But, I must say I was probably the first generation to have Barbie. I had the car and home and made cloths. I was also a chubby kid. I never thought that I needed to look like her. No one I knew looked like her. I was surrounded by confident, strong women who looked like me. We must remember that it is the people who surround children that need to help form the image of a woman, not a doll Report
