She’s the so-called “Normal Barbie,” with realistic body proportions and features that are often seen as taboo for typically perfect dolls, like cellulite, stretch marks, scars and acne. But now the Lammily doll is going to be like women everywhere in every sense of the word: girlfriend is getting her period.
But she’s more than prepared for this crucial rite of passage, thanks to the $10 Period Party extension kit. It comes with the boring stuff (an educational pamphlet that explains what to expect from a menstrual cycle) and the fun accessories like a pair of doll underwear, 19 coloured pads and a calendar and stickers to track periods.
Lammily hopes to debunk myths and start an open and positive conversation about periods and the stigmas surrounding it. It can be an embarrassing time so this is a fantastic thing for kids and parents, neither of whom ever really want to have the talk.
