Barbie B Smart is our favorite doll’s first tech toy
Celebrating Barbie’s new career as a computer engineer, Mattel has come out with the Barbie B Smart Learning laptop. Though not strictly a computer, per say, the toy simulates the computer experience with a small backlit monochromatic LCD, a mouse, QWERTY keyboard, touchpad, and several expansion cards.
Each expansion card holds three different games and kids can select to learn about 70 English and 10 Spanish activities which teach vocabulary, typing skills, grammar, and learning Spanish as a second language. Other smart cards will be coming down the road to expand the Barbie B Smart universe. And although it’s listed as 5 and above, I think you’d be hard pressed to find this toy of interest after 5 as it is quite simplistic.
Cost is about $55 from Oregon Scientific.
