Here’s what Barbie would look like if she were a real person
The shocking statistics of Barbie.
From not being able to stand up straight to being forced to walk on all fours are just two of the problems that Barbie would face if she were a real person, based on the doll’s actual measurements. According to the Daily Mail, the shocking statistics of Barbie’s proportions make it physically impossible for her to do things that the average woman can do—for starters, her thin neck is way out of proportion with her head, which would make it impossible for her to lift her own head on her own.

In addition, her 16-inch waist would also be four inches thinner than her head, “leaving room for only half a liver and a few inches of intestine,” reports the site.
And her thin, frail ankles would make it impossible for her to hold up her entire body, making it essential that she walk on all fours to be able to move.

The charts of Barbie, released by Rehabs.com, a site for locating mental health treatment centers in the U.S., said that the odds of finding a real woman with the same tall and thin neck measurements as Barbie is one in 4.3 billion, and finding the same waist as Barbie would be one out of every 2.4 billion. All in all, that well-dressed doll is definitely not in comparison of your average women—or even your uniquely-sized women, for that matter.
