Barbie and I have a very complex relationship. The angry feminist side of me always wants to say, "Eff you, Barbie! I don't have to be pink and pretty and have big boobs and a tiny waist! I don't even look like that! Who does?!?!?" The positive feminist side (and, uh, childhood me) wants to tell the other side, " No, no, no...you don't understand...she's changing! For the better!" And then they debate, and no one ever wins.
Regardless of this, I still think this Barbie Video Girl is pretty damn sweet. File this under, Why The Hell Didn't They Have This When I Was A Kid? How cool would it be to look back at yourself as this little amateur filmmaker, preserving all of the crazy adventures you went on?
Here's a video comparing the Barbie cam to the Canon 7D. Not too shabby.
Gotta say though, this thing totally makes my brother's Talkboy look super ghetto.
