New Delhi:The unhealthy body standards set-up and promoted by dolls have been slammed at one point or another for over a long time.

Lammily, the doll created last year by graphic designer Nickolay Lamm, became a sensation since it is a realistically-proportioned doll.

Setting a new benchmark for doll generations to come, Lamm has developed an extension pack for Lammily that delves into one of the most pragmatic experiences of womanhood – Menstruation.

“Lammily Marks” and “Period Party” make up only a part of the newly released extension pack and furthermore, apart from the menstrual cycle, it allows young girls to familiarize oneself with scarring, acne and blemishes.

The Period Party accessories that come along with Lammily include, 18 reusable coloured pads and liners stickers, a pair of underwear, a pamphlet and a calendar to track menstruation.

With more women coming out into the open about menstruation by way of videos, ad campaigns, et al, Lamm's extension pack celebrates womanhood in a supportive and uplifting way.

Mashable.com reported Nickolay Lamm as saying, "I just don't think that something as core to a woman's life and health as menstruation should be seen as embarrassing in any way, shape or form".
