Would You Buy A Barbie MP3 Player?

Barbiegirls.com, a new site for the Barbie girl in us all, has revealed it will sell a Barbie Girls MP3 Player starting in July.


Apparently, the accessory pack to go along with the player includes art deco beads, fashion-girl earrings, a color-popping backcover, a pet charm and an exclusive pet (panda, penguin or turtle) adoptable online. The accessories snap onto the wires attached to the ear buds. Accessory packs will cost about $10. No word yet on the cost of the player.


As someone who grew up in a Barbie-free household, I am less than excited for this and wonder if young girls really need Barbie on their MP3 players to make them interesting. Isn't it about the music and player's functions after all?

It comes out in england at the end of june rrp.£49.99 but seriously it's amazing and suitable for ANY age and its DEFINATELY worth that price!

My daughter is 9 and she's been over Barbie for a few years already. She does have an iPod shuffle and absolutely loves it. I know it seems like kids are being introduced to technology at younger ages, but that's what every generation says. I'm proud that my daughter is Computer savvy and likes gadgets just like me!

I wouldn't buy it even as a gift for a young girl. Barbies reinforce the already pounded in idea of having to be skinny to be pretty. Helloooooo body image issues. Plus, as the kid gets older they're not going to want a Barbie mp3 player anymore and it'll become a waste of money.

I asked my 7 year old cousin if she still liked barbie and she said no...so I guess this is out

I guess it'd be cute for a younger girl, but mostly unnecessary.

Maybe if I had a little girl, but not for myself.

I've never been a Barbie fan but I could see the cuteness of it for a little girl...I just think they're giving high tech devices to younger and younger children, cell phones, mp3 players/ipods...my son got one for his B-day and he's 3! I guess it's up to the individual.

For me? No. For a little girl? Sure, maybe, if they're into Barbie.

No way, I don't like Barbie.

I wouldn't buy one. Girls are exposed to Barbie-esque beauty/body stereotypes all over the place, so why should their music player be another source of that? Music tastes are about individuality, and that's not exactly the feeling I get with Barbie...

I grew up in a Barbie-free house so this doesn't thrill me. Now an iPod on the other hand...very exciting!
