New "Normal" Barbie

  • New "Normal Barbie" Comes With Acne, Scars & Stretch Marks

  • An artist named Nickolay Lamm has created a "Normal Barbie" that has the body of an average American woman and comes with add-ons like acne, scars and stretch marks. The dolls, which were designed last year and are now available for purchase, are intended to show kids that everyone has flaws and that they shoud be embraced. The stickers allow children to customize their dolls by adding freckles, stitches and grass stains, among other features. Lamm also made a video that shows how second graders respond to a realistically-proportioned fashion doll. The response is overwhelmingly positive, and includes comments like "I think she's really pretty," and "She looks like my sister."

    Who do you think about "Normal" Barbie?

Ignore No More

New York-area mom Sharon Standifird was fed up with her kids ignoring her phone calls, so she decided to do something about it. Eventually, Standifird developed an app called Ignore No More, which enables parents to effectively lock their child's phone from afar if they won't pick up. If a kid wants the password required to regain access to her usual array of smartphone accoutrements, she has to call home to get it. “Bradley needs to call me because I’m the person that has the unlock password,” Standifird says, in reference to her son. “It takes away texting, it takes away the gaming, it takes away calling their friends.” However, the child will still be able to call 911, should an emergency arise.
