“Spotted these ‘Glamour Dolls’ today. Same height as Barbie but twice the width, i.e., a normal human size. How good!” wrote one mum on Facebook.
“About time, need some realism,” said another.
While one parent noted: “They actually have sensible shoes on!”
The dolls are also popular with the older generation.
“What a great idea... will be getting one for my grand daughter. Good on you Kmart!” said one grandmother.
And at just $4 a doll, the affordable price tag is also keeping Australian parents happy.
