Move over Barbie, there’s a new girl in town. The $4 Anko ‘Glamour Dolls’ from Kmart are in high demand, and not just for their price point, either.

Unlike many other dolls on the market, Glamour Dolls are the same height as Barbie, but are twice the width – in other words, a normal human size.



Mums are praising the dolls for promoting a healthy, positive body image to young girls. The collection features four female dolls, each with varying hair and skin colours.

The dolls also look like regular women, their clothes are simple and sweet and they wear cute flat shoes.

“Love it, they’re ‘normal’ looking, actually dressed to cover the body, and not blasted with a sh*tload of make-up. We need more like this,” one mum wrote in a Facebook group.

“About time need some realism [sic],” wrote another.

Another added, "They actually look like normal women (with thighs) - I want them."

The dolls are available for $4 each or they are offered in a set of five for $15.
