Makers of the Lammily fashion doll, also known as “Normal Barbie,” have introduced a “Period Party” accessory pack to help young girls track their dolls’ menstruation cycle.

Designer Nickolay Lamm is expanding the offerings of his average-sized, realistic doll to include pad and liner stickers, doll-sized underwear to stick them on, a calendar and dot stickers to keep track of their doll’s menstruation cycle, People magazine reported.

“If a doll has pads, how can [menstruation] be taboo?” Mr. Lamm told NBC’s “Today.” “Periods are such an integral part of a woman’s life, just a healthy part of it. It shouldn’t have to be swept under the rug.”

Mr. Lamm said he worked closely with his mother, Yelena, to design “Period Party,” which is on sale for $10.

“On average, a woman between the ages of 12 and 51 spends a total of six years on her menstrual period, yet, while being a huge part of female life, this perfectly healthy, natural process is still surrounded by taboos,” reads a pamphlet included in the pack.

“Let’s start an open and positive conversation about our periods,” continues the pamphlet. “Learn the facts. Debunk the myths. Celebrate life!”
