The Oracle Provides Yummy Dummies for Perfect Fit Gift Shopping


109dummyClothes are one of the trickiest Christmas gifts to buy. Even if you hit the mall prepared with measurements and sizes, it takes a great eye to imagine exactly how an outfit might sit on a loved one.

A great eye, or a little help. The Oracle made life easier for its last minute holiday shoppers with a one-day only event on December 23. It introduced a line-up of Yummy Dummies.

And what, exactly, is a ‘Yummy Dummy’? Nothing less than the next logical step in the trend of human mannequins. A collection of real, live human models in all shapes and sizes that the center let out to help shoppers find just the right fit for their loved ones at Christmas.

With a little bit of advance planning, shoppers could borrow one of the so-called Dummies to accompany them around the center, trying on clothes and helping to pick the perfect gift.

Speaking with the Reading Chronicle, center marketing manager Sam French said, “Our usual shop mannequins are great for showcasing clothes, but there’s nothing worse than getting a gift wrong at Christmas, so we wanted to give our customers the best possible chance to get it right first time.”

“This move shows that one size really doesn’t fit all and we look forward to seeing people shopping with their mannequins.”
