Meet "Normal Barbie"
She is sturdily built, a few extra pounds around the hips, and comes with stickers of zits (see pix) and stretch marks that realistic tots can affix.
He is working on Normal Ken, too--chubby with some dirt stains, maybe. (Guys are grosser, Lamm notes, there are more things he could add.)
Lamm had his own body issues, trying like mad to get a 6-pack while being only 5'2" in HS.
His Mom loves Normal Barb.
No, you can't get it this Christmas at Toys R Us--but he has raised half a million and has 22,000 orders. Stay tuned.
To me, Abnormal Barbie's problem was she was nine "heads" high--and living people are about seven heads high. Elongated.
