Made famous by the film Ghostbusters, Ecto Goggles are a must have for any avid collector or fan. The original goggles made for the film were made from military night vision goggles: model AN/PVS-5a- with the lenses changed out for more appropriate look for the film.
The new Mattel Ecto Goggles based on the original design have also been made to interact with other Mattel Ghostbusters items such as the PKE meter. This feature allows you to see the library ghost. You can also cause an animated slimmer to appear on the display and the quicker you twist the dial the faster the animation is played.
The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror by Mattell is a vanity mirror that is compatible with an iPad.
This brings the level of fun and dynamic play to an entirely new level, as girls can try on different kinds of eye shadow or lipstick without having to actually do this in reality, which is a major benefit for parents who don’t feel like dealing with messy cleanup after the fact. As it’s name suggests, the makeover mirror allows girls to play makeover all in the contained environment of a digital setting.
While this is a toy made for younger girls, the applications of this product could actually be viable in more general market settings. For instance, any adult could try on different types of makeup and see what they would look like without having to try them on in actuality. This will save time and money for both stores and consumers if they every try to use this application in more commercial settings. The potential is certainly there.
The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror has a suggested retail price of $69.99.
The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror is advertised by Mattell to be for young girls ages 6 and up. This would be the perfect age group for this product, as the appeal of makeovers and Barbie series is undeniable for most girls of this age group.
Things We Like
This product provides parents and children alike a lot of value for the money. One extremely neat feature is the ability of the toy to utilize face tracking technology, which follows the movements of the child, so the act of putting on makeup becomes an engaging experience that is as close to real life as it gets!
Unless you’re simply not a fan of the Barbie brand by Mattell, there’s really not a lot to dislike about the Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror. There could be a potential for damage to the iPad, as this piece of technology isn’t exactly designed for children ages 6 and up.
This toy is definitely worth the price, as it turns an iPad into a source of nonstop entertainment for young girls. Not only that, but this digital technology saves on having to actually purchase makeup products and cleaning materials.
The Barbie Digital Makeover Mirror can be bought online on sites such as Amazon.com and in other major stores, such as Toys ‘R Us.
