Word on the Street: Dolls show off ‘normal’ body

Is it time to ditch Barbie and Ken for a more realistic doll? 



A new line of dolls with a more realistic representation of the human body is aiming to do just that. 



The Lammily doll is designed to mirror the body image of the average woman, displaying realistic proportions and imperfections. Kids can accessorize with stickers that include cellulite, stretch marks, freckles, acne and glasses. 



The Lammily website says the $25 doll will be ready to ship next Friday, but the stickers won't be available until January. 



News 12 hit the streets to see if Bronx viewers would buy the new plastic figure.
