A Real Working Camera and Stylish Barbie in One

With Video Girl Barbie, your child can play filmmaker by shooting real videos. Barbie's necklace features a camera lens that shoots from her point of view. You can watch the recordings in real time and play them back on the color LCD screen that's conveniently located on her back.

Barbie's controls allow up to 25 minutes of recording at a time. You can scroll through your clips and delete what you don't want to use. With the USB cable, you can even transfer clips to your computer. Barbie's playback mode doesn't include audio, but you'll be able to see and hear the clips when you transfer them to your computer.

Barbie comes out of the box in denim jeans, a trendy print hoodie with shimmery pink fabric, and matching pink ankle boots. You can hold her while you're recording, or use her jointed knees, elbows, and hands to pose and point her toward your film set. Whether she's documenting her birthday party or filming a dramatic epic starring her favorite Barbie dolls, your child will love the creative possibilities of Video Girl Barbie Doll.

Video Girl Editing Software Includes Fun, Preloaded Extras
Plug Barbie into your Windows machine with the USB cable and download the free exclusive editing software that allows you to turn your clips into movies with music, sound effects, graphics, and transitions. The software comes preloaded with soundtrack music that fits most any genre--from romance and action, to comedy and drama. Kids will love integrating the Barbie-themed transitions, opening screens, and closing credits screens into their films.

With Video Girl editing software, you can even connect Barbie to your computer for live video display. The software is intuitive and easy to use, but younger children may need help learning the tools. After your child is done editing her film, she can save the file and share it with her friends.

    Worked great on my computer and we had fun watching the videos.

    In her own way though, Barbie Video Girl will inspire young girls and empower them to embrace technology, learn from it, and expand their storytelling horizons.

    Video quality is excellent, overall this doll is a very good buy for a child to make home movies.

    This doll was purchased(by request)for my daughter who turned 7 this week. Without a flash it was like filming in the dark. It was fairly easy to use. The editing software was not as easy. If you have studio lighting in your home you may not have a problem. I personally feel that this issue will result in a price reduction in the near future. We have decided to get a child friendly camcorder with a "Flash" and just get another Barbie doll. Thank you.

    We purchased this for our daughter's 7th birthday. She loves it! The video quality is surprisingly good for something that fits inside a Barbie doll! The audio isn't bad either. You do need quite a bit of light for recording, but we were able to record things inside the house with light just from open blinds. The editing software is a little tricky to figure out, but I was able to "produce" a 2 minute video with intros, transitions, sounds, and credits in about 30 minutes. I don't have any prior experience with editing software, and I'm sure it will get much quicker now that I've figured out how to do it. I don't think my daughter will be able to edit any videos herself, but I would rather help her anyway. Overall, I think this is a great product, and I would definitely recommend others buy this if they are thinking about it.

    I'm not sure other reviewers appreciate how brilliant this is. It's a working video camera that shoots video akin to the quality you'd find from high end digital cameras a few years ago, all from a tiny camera embedded in a Barbie doll's chest!

    The potential is fantastic, tapping into a new way for children to tell their stories and engage in imaginary play. Imagine getting a Barbie's Eye View of her dream house or her date with Ken. It adds another layer of possibilities to make these playworlds come alive for those participating in them.

    Some reviewers are concerned, but I wonder if they're the same reviewers who would just as easily give their pre-teen or young teenage children phones with working video cameras. It's just as difficult to tell what they're doing with those phones and who they're sharing photos and videos with. That doesn't mean these devices should be banned. It means parents and caretakers need to teach their children what's appropriate. Little girls could set Barbie's hair on fire too, but most parents would say they've instilled enough of a sense of right and wrong in their kids to make sure that doesn't happen.

    As for educational value, it's tremendous. Children - boys and girls alike - need to have a working familiarity with technology today. Transferring videos with the hot pink (hot pink!) USB cable is fairly easy, but also takes a bit of technological prowess. It takes a little more learning to figure out how to upload such videos to YouTube, Facebook, or anywhere else. You can do this with Barbie's software, or with other programs like Picasa (that works great for me).

    So...the AAA battery compartments are located on the inner thighs of this Barbie. You will need a teeny screwdriver and lots of batteries. I recommend getting rechargeable AAAs...will save you in the long run. My girl runs through at least one set a day if she uses it more than an hour at a time. Plugging into the computer will NOT recharge it, as this doll does not have an internal battery like the Photo Fashion Barbie.

    That being said, my girl has had this doll now for around three months, and still plays with it on a DAILY basis...the full screen video playbacks on the computer are fair quality, but perfectly acceptable for kid play.

    3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Randi Morse VINE VOICE on January 3, 2011
    Our daughter BEGGED for Barbie Video Girl for Christmas, and fortunately for her Santa decided to be a lot nicer than Mom and Dad (Santa also got a huge deal on it when it was purchased).

    When she first started to play with it she was pretty upset. The video playback on the Barbie isn't what she had hoped for. It's a bit laggy and there is no audio playback on the Barbie.

    Then we downloaded some of the little movies she'd taken and, lemme just say, WOW. Our son got a spy watch for Christmas that takes video and the Barbie Video Girl video is better than the spy watch's video! And there IS audio when you play it back on your computer.

    PROS:

    - Easy to use - with three buttons, and one battery in the thigh (genius right there), it's quick and easy to use for young girls.

    - Cute! Just because Barbie's a video camera doesn't mean that she can't be cute! Her jacket and pants come off, but her top stays on.

    - Bendy - I personally love that she's got tons of joints and that she moves around very easily.

    - Great video and audio playback - again, when viewed on the Barbie screen the playback's not so good. Viewed on the computer, though, it's amazingly decent.

    - Free video editing software! Go to the website listed in the booklet and you can download video editing software, so your little Barbie lover can not only record, but can make their own Barbie movies.

    CONS:

    - Light - it does require quite a bit of light to get a great shot, but that doesn't mean that you have to invest in a spotlight. My daughter's bedroom light was perfect for taping. Try taping during daylight hours as well, with the overhead light on, and you'll get the best results.
