My birthday isn’t until Fall but I wouldn’t be averse to someone buying me a Barbie Digital Fashion Styling Head for iPad. As a child I did indeed have a Barbie Fashion Styling Head, didn’t everyone? As I recall, it wasn’t always about makeup and styling hair though. I’m pretty sure I cut all her hair off at some point and did unusual experiments on her.
I promise anything I did was completely normal. Kinda.
But times they are a changing and now Barbie has gone digital.
I admit during Think Geek’s Geek Pride Day (they had 20% off your entire purchase) I was tempted to place this into my cart with the rest of my haul. What? I was buying it for the blog (what an excuse!).
Basically Barbie’s face is replaced by your iPad. Somply slide your iPad into the styling head, download the app, and start styling Barbie up.
I must admit as techie and geeky as I am I liked the old Barbie Styling Head. There was something so satisfying about swiping on bright blue eyeshadow and vibrant red lipstick onto Barbie’s face to the point she looked like one of Jack’s French girls.
But it’s a new generation so now you can touch your way to a perfect face of makeup for Barbie and save the looks to Barbie’s Cloudcastle Network (see? even Barbie has a Cloud) and even share them with friends.
On the up side, at least she still has hair you can cut off in huge chunks if you’re a little bit of a sadistic child like I was….!
I can’t think of a single person that didn’t, at some point, give Barbie a weird hair cut.
