Kmart has released a selection of new dolls and many mothers have praised the range for being so much more realistic.
The $4 ‘Glamour Dolls’ are being recognised for challenging the conventional look of dolls and promoting healthy body image.
One mum recently shared: “Spotted these ‘Glamour Dolls’ today. Same height as Barbie but twice the width, ie, a normal human size. How good!”
“Love it, they’re ‘normal’ looking, actually dressed to cover the body, and not blasted with a sh*tload of makeup. We need more like this,” read one of the comments.
“About time need some realism,” read another, while another mum wrote, “And they actually have sensible shoes on!”
Over the years Barbie has often sparked debate over body image concerns for children.
