What if Fashion Dolls Were Made Using Standard Human Body Proportions?

A while back, a guy named Nickolay Lamm created a prototype for a Barbie-like doll, but with real human proportions. He used the CDC's measurements for the average 19-year-old American woman. Well wouldn't it be cool if toy makers took notice and started creating dolls for our kids that are more realistic.

Well, that hasn't happened, so Nickolay decided to make his own "average" dolls. He's running a crowdfunding project, and you can help support it by donating or ordering a doll.

The doll is made according to typical human body proportions.

Her wardrobe isn't composed of typical clothing for dolls – she is dressed with striking simplicity.

DIY Wooden letter with marbles

You don’t need to keep the crafting and DIY project for indoors; you can bring them out in the garden where everybody can see them in the hot summer weather.

The wooden letter is from the craft store for an inexpensive price, and you can spray paint it any color you want, or leave it black. You can choose a bright summer color and contrasting marbles if you’re doing this for a party. The marbles are also readily available at the dollar store. They have one flat surface to make it easy to stick and they come in many different colors too but we love the turquoise color shown in the picture. All you need now is a hot glue gun and you stick them in any arrangement you like.
