Lammily, a line of so-called “Normal Barbies” with realistic body proportions, has created a video as a tribute to toys from the past 114 years. Beginning in 1901 with the ball, the video features 11-year-old Olivia Hanlon playing with an assortment of toys that have been popular at some point in time from the start of the 20th century to the present.
As the years go by, the playthings evolve from 1903’s Crayola Crayons to 1974’s Rubik’s Cubes to 2010’s Smart Phones, with a variety of others in between. The video culminates with Hanlon holding a Lammily doll that represents 2015, a watershed year for empowering toys, according to Tech Insider.
Lammily has released past videos detailing the adventures of “Normal Barbie,” including one in which she encounters unrealistic beauty expectations and another in which she gets her period.
