Out of the millions of new toys at Toy Fair I found the Barbie® Digital Dress Doll and here’s why I think your kids will love it.

Toy Name: Barbie® Digital Dress Doll

The Scoop:
I saw this demonstrated and couldn’t believe how cool it was. Using the latest LED and touch-screen technology, girls can create and select their own animated digital designs which appear on Barbie doll’s dress. There are three modes of play—choose from ready-to-go graphics like hearts and fireworks, draw custom designs, and watch designs respond to sound and music.The LED light display is a part of her dress so she takes the party with her. Kids will love seeing how the flashing lights respond to their voices and favorite tunes.

A Great Gift For:
Barbie loving girls 6+

When It Hits The Shelves:
August 2013

How Much It Will Cost:
$49.99

You don’t want to miss the scoop from the “110th annual American International Toy Fair®  (February 10th – 13th )!

Each year, the Gift Gurus walk the over 350,000 square feet at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City in search of the most giftable toys and games. It truly is a labor of love (and comfy shoes!) to get an early look at what’s new and exciting for the kiddos. This industry only event is where the big sellers for the holidays are determined…yes, they are determined in February! And, as always, we’re taking you with us into the belly of the beast to see what’s hot before it hits the shelves.

Stay tuned to see all of our American International Toy Fair finds for the scoop on what our predictions are for this and previous years.
