Collectibles don’t always have to make sense, since collectors probably go for the name and what it represents, rather than worrying about its practicality and functionality.
Much like Hello Kitty products or TokyoFlash watches, they don’t really make a lot of sense but the appeal to collectors is there. What this means is that fans and collectors (or even parents looking to buy something for their child) of Barbie might be interested in adding this Barbie “tablet” to their collection.
The device is far from high tech and it doesn’t even feature a color LCD, but at least it has a touch screen that comes with a stylus, and a variety of learning activities such as writing, drawing, music making, vocabulary building, sequencing, memorizing and more. The device is said to even come with a range of themes – fashion, design, pets, party and more, and even features handwriting recognition.
Like we said earlier, this will probably be a great gift for Barbie fans and collectors, or even for your child, and the device will set you back $49.95, and it is available at Oregon Scientific.
