Finally an iPad Enhanced Toy That Doesn’t Suck
Is it just our lack of sleep and food – or is that amazingly cool? It really looks like the woman has all that makeup on – and in the right places.

We have seen so many iPad enhanced toys which make no sense, but this one looks like it could actually fly.
Wow, All The Makeup With None of The Mess
Think of it Moms and Dads, girls can try on endless makeup, with no mess. Here is the full description from Mattel…
“Enjoy a fabulous, makeup-free makeover with the Barbie™ Makeover Mirror. Transform an iPad® into a digital mirror by sliding it into the vanity frame. Girls can then look into the “mirror” and select options like eye shadow, lipstick, color, and glitter. Use the included applicator to apply virtual makeup to the girl’s live image on the iPad® screen! Facial tracking technology keeps the digital makeup in place as the girl moves, just like she’s really wearing it! Girls can make a digital scrapbook of their favorite makeover looks.”
