Barbie Digital Dress Doll

Product Review – Barbie Digital Dress Doll

The Barbie Digital Dress Doll is the newest Barbie to come off the ‘runway’ with all the usual features that are expected from her, but with one big twist. Her dress uses the latest LED and touch screen technology! There are 114 tri-colored LED lights built into her dress and it lets the user choose between three different functions:

• The first function allows the user to choose from pre-set patterns such as hearts and fireworks. By sliding a finger across the touch screen dress the user can browse through the different animated designs.

• The second allows the user to use the stylus to draw their own designs. They can do this by first selecting a color and then using the stylus to draw their design onto the dress.

• The third function makes the LEDs respond to sound and music. This means that when a child talks to their doll or plays music, the graphics on the dress move according to the sounds in the room.

Made by world famous toy brand Mattel, this new doll complete with the 4.5 inch touch screed and LED lights is thought to become one of the most popular fashion dolls.

The original Barbie was created by Ruth and Elliot Handler back in 1959 and since then they have remained popular with girls all over the world. This new doll is another in a long line of dolls that will continue to be loved by millions of girls.

Who Would Buy the Barbie Digital Dress Doll?

This doll is geared towards young girls ages 6 and up, and although the doll&#8217s programmable features may seem complicated they are, in fact, easy to use. The Barbie Digital Dress Doll would make a great gift for any young girl, especially those who like to draw and design. Girls who already love Barbie and even some who don&#8217t are sure to be fans of this new interactive Digital Dress Barbie.

Although aimed at young girls there are even adults expressing an interest to have a play with the Barbie Digital Dress doll.

Things We Like About the Barbie Digital Dress Doll

Barbie’s dress has been taken to a whole new level and its new interactive features are amazing. The settings are changed by clicking on one of the three different hearts on her necklace, allowing the child to easily choose which function they want to use. She also has articulated limbs, including elbows and wrists, meaning the child can pose her in different positions.

The feature that allows the user to draw their own designs is fantastic. They can use multiple colors in any one design and it really allows children the ability to create and design.

The idea of the LED lights on the dress is also something that has been seen on real fashion runways, so yet again, Barbie is keeping up with real world fashion and allowing tech-savvy youngsters to keep up too.

Things We Didn’t Like About the Barbie Digital Dress Doll

The only downside to this doll is that if children play rough they may end up breaking the LEDs or the touch screen. But as long as they are careful there shouldn’t be any problems.

Another point worth mentioning is that unlike the traditional Barbie, this new doll only comes with the one interactive dress so far.

Is the Barbie Digital Dress Doll Worth the Money?

Although the price may seem excessive to some people, the different interactive features make up for it by providing hours of entertainment and fun. Children are less likely to get bored with this doll as they are able to constantly redesign her dress and come up with new ideas.

Where Can I Buy the Barbie Digital Dress Doll?

The Barbie Digital Dress Doll is available in all major toy stores like Toys R Us and Walmart, as well as online retailers like Amazon and Mattel’s website.

Product Review – Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror

Barbie Digital Makeup Mirror

Product Review – Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror

The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror by Mattell is a digital vanity mirror that is compatible with an iPad. The level of fun and dynamic play is brought to an entirely new level because girls can try on different kinds of eye shadow or lipstick without really using makeup. This is a major benefit for parents who don’t feel like dealing with messy cleanup afterwards. As its name suggests, the makeover mirror allows girls to play makeover in a digital setting.

Who Would Use This Product?

The Mattell Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror is advertised to be for young girls ages 6 and up. This is the perfect age group, as the appeal of makeovers and the Barbie series is undeniable for most girls of this age.

But while the product is made as a toy for girls, the applications of it are a viable solution for adults, too, because they could try on different types of makeup to see what they would look like without actually having to try them on. (A wonderful idea for beauty shops and retail stores!)

What We Like about the Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror

This product provides parents and children a lot of value for the money. One really neat feature of the toy is the ability to utilize face tracking technology, which follows the movements of the child, so the act of putting on makeup becomes an engaging experience that is as close to real life as it gets!

What We Did Not Like about the Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror

Unless you simply are not a fan of the Mattell Barbie brand, there really isn&#8217t much to dislike about the Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror. However, there could be a potential for damage to the iPad, since this piece of technology isn’t exactly designed for children. But with proper adult supervision for younger girls there shouldn’t be any problems.

Is the Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror Worth the Money?

This toy is definitely worth the price because it turns an iPad into a source of non-stop entertainment for young girls. Besides that, the digital technology saves on having to actually purchase makeup products and cleaning materials.

Customer Reviews For Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror

The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror is gaining increased attention by parents as a viable alternative to physically supplying their child’s makeover desires. So far, consumers have been extremely satisfied with the product, and it&#8217s a perfect combination of play and computer technology.

Where Can I Buy The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror?

The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror can be bought online at websites such as Amazon.com and in other major stores, like Toys R Us.
