Other: Lammily Photographer is the only Black doll in the Lammily line. Lammily dolls are marketed as “the first fashion doll made according to typical human body proportions to promote realistic beauty standards and help your child develop a positive body image!” The doll has a long torso and short legs and can stand without the assistance of a doll stand when properly positioned. In the last gallery photograph, the doll wears the Lammily Rosie the Riveter fashion that was sold separately.
