Here's What A Realistic Barbie Doll Looks Like

For more than 50 years, Mattel's popular Barbie doll has inspired criticism of its unrealistic portrayal of an adult woman's body. In spite of the critiques, the dolls have remained incredibly popular, and no one seemed willing to present a possible alternative.
