Barbie gets web savvy
Mattel has announced a USB enabled Barbie doll that doubles as a music player and will be able to interact with a new virtual online world.
The Barbie Girl doll features 512MB of memory – enough for 120 MP3 songs – and is expandable via a miniSD slot. It has a built in battery and charges via USB.
There’s also a new Barbie Girls website that provides a virtual world for Barbie fans to interact with one another.
Girls can create their own virtual character, design their own room, shop at the mall, play games, hang out and chat live with other girls.
The Barbie Girl doll will be available in July and unlock new areas of the website.
