'Hello Barbie Hologram' Gives Kids a New Way to Interact with Barbie

— February 20, 2017 — Life-Stages
After Mattel launched its Talk to Me Barbie in the 90s, it followed up with the Hello Barbie in 2015—now, it is introducing the Hello Barbie Hologram at the New York Toy Fair.

Kids can use the phrase "Hello Barbie" to initiate a chat with the artificially intelligent doll, and her 2D projection will respond to commands, such as an action, revealing the weather conditions or setting an alarm. Barbie can even be asked to brush her own hair and choose her own outfits. In some of the demos at the Toy Fair, Barbie even danced and showed off a few yoga poses.

The Hello Barbie Hologram can also be used as a night light or a music player, making it not just a toy, but a handy multipurpose device in a child's bedroom.
Trend Themes
1. Artificially Intelligent Dolls - The integration of AI in dolls opens up opportunities to create more interactive and engaging toys for children.
2. Holographic Technology in Toys - The use of holographic technology in toys allows for a more immersive and realistic play experience for children.
3. Multipurpose Interactive Toys - Creating toys with multiple functions, such as night lights or music players, provides added value and convenience for both children and parents.
Industry Implications
1. Toy Manufacturing - Toy manufacturers can innovate by incorporating AI and holographic technology into their product lines, creating more engaging and interactive toys.
2. Technology and Entertainment - The development of holographic technology in the toy industry opens up opportunities for technology and entertainment companies to collaborate and create innovative products for children.
3. Smart Home Devices - By integrating multipurpose interactive toys into smart home systems, the toy industry can tap into the growing market of connected devices and provide new ways for children to interact with their toys.
