Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror We first saw a demo of the Mattel Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror at Toy Fair 2013 and we were impressed. We have now had time to review the Digital Makeover Mirror and we are still impressed. Very impressive Face Tracking Technology for a toy.

Often toys that use the iPad are just gimmicks, with very little use for the iPad. Luckily the Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror is NOT one of these toys, This is a toy that absolutely uses the power of the iPad and it works. Here are more details…
Classic Makeover Play Goes Digital!
Girls can give themselves mess-free, makeup-free makeovers with Barbie Digital Makeover! The virtual play is brought to life in a way that only Barbie can deliver — using cutting-edge technology. Your tech-savvy girl can enjoy endless styling playtime with a console that turns her iPad (not included) into a digital makeup mirror!
Try Glam & Gorgeous Looks
Just download the free app, available at the App StoreSM, and then slide your iPad into the vanity frame — the makeup lights turn on, and the app and front-facing camera recognize your face. Use the applicator wand to apply virtual makeup to your image onscreen. Select the perfect eye shadow and lipstick color. Even add glitter or try a ready-to-wear look. Use the “erase” icon to selectively remove makeup with a swab, or “wash” your face to remove all makeup and start again. The possibilities are endless!
Extra Fabulous Features
Thanks to facial-tracking technology, the virtual makeup moves with the girl as she moves her face and changes her expressions. Once she has created the perfect makeover, a friend can step in to see what it looks like on her! Girls can save their designs in the app and customize them with digital photo frames, stickers, and more. They’ll love showing their fab creations to family and friends!
Add to the Fashionable Digital Fun
To expand the playtime for your digital diva, also check out Barbie® Digital Dress (sold separately). Girls can customize light-up designs on Barbie doll’s dress using touchscreen technology and then make the graphics move to their favorite tunes! These are the perfect gifts for every cool-and-connected techie girl!
