Barbie Photo Fashion: 5-Megapixel Pics and a Built-In Chest LCD Screen

Toys are getting fancier and cameras are getting weirder. Mattel is set to launch a new camera barbie called Barbie Photo Fashion that’ll upgrade many a dollhouse with a human-shaped 5-megapixel digital camera. Unlike the soon-to-be-outdated Video Girl Barbie and its chest-cam, this new photography doll features a camera built into her back with the LCD screen moved to her frontside. She can store 100 photos, features a mini USB port on her lower back, and comes with 15 built-in photo “filters” — a must-have for toy cameras and apps these days. It’ll cost a cool $50 when it hits store shelves in the near future, though availability hasn’t been announced yet.

    Why?

    Though, for $50 I may buy one, chop off the arms, legs and head and use the torso as a cheap P&S for my car.

    BTW, Mini USB’s make the worst tramp-stamps ever. I guess it’s still better there than the alternatives.

    Didn’t they already do something like that but was prohibited because “it would help pedophiles” take photos of kids?

    because tshirts with square images on the front are the epitome of fashion.

    I can just imagine some parent trying to record some incredible event, but finding themselves without a camera or phone.. dare they use the barbie?
