What It IsLights, Barbie, Action! Play with Barbie in a whole new way. With the Barbie Video Girl Doll, girls can create movies from Barbie's point-of-view with a real video camera inside the doll! The camera lens is in Barbie's necklace and a color LCD video screen is on Barbie's back. Girls will have endless fun recording and playing back their digital masterpieces with close to 30 minutes of recording time. It's important to note that while the doll records sound, it can't play it back. You'll only hear the sound from your movies when you play them through your computer. Editing software is available at Barbie.com so girls can enhance their videos with visual and sound effects. The video camera is Mac and PC compatible, however the editing software is for PCs only. (We opted not to use the Barbie.com software, instead downloading our video into iMovie on our Mac and editing it there. Other video editing applications may also be compatible for both Mac and PC users.) The doll comes with a USB cord. Two AAA batteries are required, but not included.
This is such a cool doll that even adults will love. Recording and editing videos is easy for girls to do, and it really gets them playing creatively. Once the video fun is done, the seamless integration of the camera and screen on the doll allows girls to play with Barbie Video Girl like a regular doll.
