Parents unsure of how to go about having "the talk" with their preteen daughters can enlist some help from the Lammily doll and her period book.
The Lammily doll is a realistically proportioned alternative to the Barbie doll. Her appearance in the world of girls' toys was lauded by feminists and parents for giving young women a more accurate depiction of women's bodies. Now, Lammily is making further strides in the expression of womanly realities. Parents can now purchase sets of colorfully decorated pads for their daughters' Lammily dolls, as well as a Lammily period book, advertised as "The fun way to explain the menstrual cycle to kids."
The release of the Lammily period kit is hailed by an ad in which a couple of well-meaning parents try to teach their daughter about menstruation through an original rap.
