Take learning to the next level with Barbie! This electronic learning aid works alone or with your TV for an interactive experience Barbie fans will love. Much like the popular LeapPad books, this "Education Center" provides interactive storytelling, lessons, and activities. Just open up the sturdy pink plastic laptop-style unit, snap in the reversible spiral-bound book (one side is for ages 3 to 5, the other for ages 6 to 8), and gently touch the point of the attached pen to any page you choose.

Now let Barbie's perky voice take over. "Hi, it's Barbie! With so much to see and do, let's get started!" She guides players to match upper- and lower-case letters, help her choose an outfit (which she then tries on in the TV-enhanced version), play along in Skipper's jam session (with the included microphone), learn a little about French, test rhyming skills, and more. Pages like "Shoe Review" will appeal to the fashion-conscious learners, while "Ocean Fun" will draw future oceanographers. A fun, non-threatening way for girls to get into interactive learning. --Emilie Coulter
