The BarbiBarbie Digital Makeover Mirror e Digital Makeover Mirror by Mattell is a vanity mirror with a difference that is compatible with an iPad. It brings the level of fun and dynamic play to a whole new level, as girls can try on different kinds of eye shadow or lipstick without having to actually do this in reality, which can be a major benefit (if you know what I mean) for parents who don’t feel like dealing with cleaning up mess after the fact. As the name suggests, the makeover mirror allows girls to play makeover all in the contained environment of a digital setting.
