A lot of teens these days have unrealistic perceptions of the ideal body, no thanks to the stick-thin models walking down runways and gracing magazine covers. But before media exposure, we have kids’ toys to blame. Just look at Barbie with her impossibly narrow waist and curvy hips (which, by the way, is relatively impossible to have naturally.)
Designs for Barbie with a more realistic-looking body have cropped up on the Internet every once in a while, and the latest one we have is by Nicholay Lamm. His version of Barbie is more accurate though, since he went through the trouble of going to the Center for Disease Control to get the average measurements for a 19-year-old woman in the United States.
