Last week we showed you a very bloody Donald Trump, and this week we're continuing the conversation with more menstrual-talk.
First, let's talk about Lammily dolls: They're basically Barbie dolls, only with normal, realistic, human proportions and features.
Their newest feature: having their period.
Yup, you read that right. Parents can now buy a "Period Party" accessory kit for their child's doll. There's no red dye or messiness involved (unlike the real thing), most of it is left to the imagination — but the practice prepares girls for the day their "womanhood" does arrive. Bless their little hearts.
The kit includes:
- an educational pamphlet explaining the menstrual cycle
- a pair of underwear (doll-sized)
- 18 reusable pads/panty-liner stickers
- a calendar and dot stickers
While the concept might be hard for some to grasp, Lammily explains, "On average, a woman between the ages of 12 and 51 spends a total of 6 years on her menstrual period. Yet, while being a huge part of female life, this perfectly healthy natural process is still surrounded with taboos.
“Let’s start an open and positive conversation about our periods."
Hey, we're totally on board.
