Say hello to a new doll – level 2

02-12-2014 15:00

There is a new doll on the market. It is a doll which has the body of an average 19-year-old woman. The doll’s name is Lammily. The company’s motto is “it’s time to get real and show that average is beautiful.”

You can put stickers on the doll. Lammily can have acne, cellulite, freckles, glasses, scars or a little dirt on her.

A crowdsourcing campaign made the production of the doll possible. Crowdsourcing allows anybody with a great idea to start his or her project. People who like their idea can send that person money and help him or her start.

Difficult words: motto (a short sentence which expresses the most important idea of a person/company), cellulite (fat just below somebody’s skin), freckle (a small point of brown colour on the skin).

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

Would you buy your daughter Barbie or Lammily? Why?
