Real Life Dolls

Nickolay Lamm noticed a lack of realistic dolls when he was out shopping for his niece’s birthday gift. So he decided to make his own, and found himself at the beginning of a positive body image trend. After lots of research, he built a prototype with a 3-D printer based on the proportions of a typical young woman. Once the world saw an image of his creation online, the feedback was overwhelming. Nickolay turned to crowdfunding to meet the demand for his realistically-shaped Lammily dolls. Kids are encouraged to name the dolls themselves, and each one comes with a fun backstory. To make them even more unique and true to life, kids can apply Lammily Marks. This sticker set personalizes the dolls with characteristics like birthmarks, freckles, and glasses. Nickolay didn’t know he was on his way to shaking up toy store shelves during that shopping trip, but now his dolls encourage acceptance for every type of body—an important lesson for kids and grown-ups alike.

    I got two of these when it was being crowdfunded. I gave one to my daughter and she calls it Mommy b/c it looks quite a bit like me. LOL It is not one of her favorites because she does not sit like the other dolls and her legs are kind of hard to bend and they only bend just a little. However, all that said, I love the idea and my daughter gets to accept normal body shapes of her dolls. Waiting for the male dolls and kid dolls to come out!

    @Atesia Thank you for initial support! Her knees and arms do bend - if they are stiff move them back and fourth a bunch of times. They will become less stiff. Hope this helps! The male doll will be released in December and will hopefully be on The Grommet too!

    Every grommet product lists where it is made if you click on the specific product as though to buy it. That page always lists all the details, so there is no need to ask here in this conversation space. Asking here always makes it seem like someone wants to highlight the manufacturing location in a judgmental way... really a shame as these small manufacturers always do their best to find a balance between locally made and reasonable prices.

    I love these dolls and the idea behind them! Thanks Grommet for bringing us this fab product that opens us up to have conversations with our kids in a playful environment regarding important body image topics. My daughter has had the original doll since the first release. We had a small issue with the doll and Lammily Customer Service made it right. This is a great company that stands behind their product. We can't wait to receive the Photographer and Boy Animal Rescue Doll.
