We had the pleasure of reviewing another Barbie toy this week, and another great Christmas gift. Perfect actually, for older fans of Barbie, as it is designed with ages 6+ in mind. It was quite different to anything from Barbie that we have used before.
Barbie Photo Fashion, is not just a doll but a digital camera!
The camera is integrated into Barbie’s outfit, and every time you take a photo it’s then instantly displayed on Barbie’s t-shirt, at the front of the doll. It’s very easy to set up, the doll comes on a stand, which I think is a great idea, as it keeps it stable, both whilst taking photographs and as I think it makes a great doll to have on display in a childs room, and so keeps it safe.
Heres a photograph I took of what you see on the T-shirt in more detail :
Of course you can also download all of the images from the doll, using the bright pink USB cable, onto your computer. There is an area on the stand, to be able to connect the USB cable to Barbie safely. Miss N and I did this together, and it was extremely easy to do.
We have had great fun playing with all of the added features available. These are all available instantly, as you decided what you would like as an overlay, before you take the picture using the buttons on the belt around her waist.
The doll can store up to 200 photos, and you can delete photographs off the doll at any time. It doesn’t require batteries as there’s one built-in which can be charged up with the USB.
It is more expensive than your usual Barbie at £69.99, so it is one that’s for the Christmas list, rather than a stocking filler. The camera is 0.3 MP with 4 MB of memory.
So as this was tested by Miss N (10) I wanted to give her the opportunity to give her opinion.
I think this is perfect for sleepover, or if you invite friends around, as it would be great fun to do together. I could spend hours on it. Brilliant for somebody who loves Barbie’s, but doesn’t want an expensive camera. I love the settings, especially the animal, sunglasses and headphone ones. A great idea, and I know my friends and I are going to lots of fun playing with it.
I think we can safely say that it is a hit!
