When we heard about the Barbie® Video Girl™ Doll ($50), we cringed at the thought of instilling music video vixen aspirations into young impressionable girls. Our bad; Mattel promotes something a lot more constructive here - directorial ambition! There's a Windows/Mac compatible video camera tucked away in this trendy mini outfit (See that tiny camera lens hidden on Barb's necklace? We barely could.). Pint-sized wannabe filmmakers are gonna squeal with delight recording clips from a doll's-eye-view and then watching the instant play-back on the LCD screen under her hood. Take it again, or upload it onto your computer with the USB plug-in. It comes complete with video editing software, so your little one can even make a full movie.
Editor's note: Mac parents, know that the editing software is for Windows only.
