Saying hello to Hello BarbieCNET gets a chance to chat with an early version of the talking toy, which hits stores in early November.
[MUSIC] This is Ben Rubin with C/net. I'm here in Mattel's office's in New York, and I'm hanging out with Hello Barbie, which is the toy companies first ever chatty conversational Barbie doll. So, let's see what she has to say. What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a scientist. Eureka! A scientist. I think science is so amazing. Why do you want to be a scientist? I always really liked chemistry and physics in school. The study of physics is incredible. Take gravity. You see it, but the second you trip, it's right there to pull you down. Did you ever fall and trip on something? Yeah, unfortunately. All the time. It happens to me all the time. That's gravity. Pulling you down, sometimes with an ouch. What do you like about physics? I don't know, what do you like about Physics, Barbie? I see. Have you ever heard of Newton's Law? Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. He's got a few more really useful law of Physics too. Wow, you sound to me like the next Marie Curie or Albert Einstein. Am I right? Yeah, maybe, but I've still got a lot more schooling to do. I knew you were a smart cookie. So what branch of science are you most interested in I really like biology. The study of life. You know, some of the most interesting life on earth is too small to be seen without a microscope. Have you ever looked through a Microscope? Yeah, quite a few times. Well, it's a wonderful world to explore for an aspiring biologist. Okay, cool. All right, so anyway, that was My conversation with Hello Barbie. Hello Barbie is going to be available in the holiday season for 75 bucks. This is Ben Rubin with CNET, signing off.
