Say hello to a new doll – level 1

02-12-2014 15:00

A company has a good idea. It wants to make a doll. This doll is called Lammily. She is unlike a Barbie. She looks like a normal woman.

This company does not have enough money. You cannot make a doll without money. The company asks people for help. People send it money. The company starts to make the doll, and now you can buy her!

You can put stickers on the doll. These stickers can make her a little fat. She can have glasses. She can be a little dirty, too.

Some girls see the doll. They like her. They say that she is pretty. They say that she looks like a normal girl.

Difficult words: company (a group of people who run a business), doll (a toy which is like a little woman), sticker (a small piece of paper which you can put somewhere).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you buy your daughter Barbie or Lammily? Why?
