|African American Photo Fashion Barbie|
Prior to today, I did not know an African American version of Photo Fashion Barbie was planned.
"If you can picture it, Barbie doll can wear it! Girls can customize this 11.5-inch Barbie doll's shirt by taking photos with the embedded digital camera-the pictures are then displayed immediately on the shirt! Or girls can select from several preloaded graphics for the same effect. Plug Barbie doll into the computer via USB cable to edit the pictures further using the web-based software. Control the viewing through three buttons on Barbie doll's belt. The technology features capacity for more than 100 photos! Includes Barbie doll with embedded digital camera and LCD screen, stand, USB cable, rechargeable battery and instructions."
I had only seen the white version online at several websites and blogs without mention of the African American version. This led me to believe Mattel had overlooked the segment of the market that would want this version.

I am as happy, as it appears the young girl is on the back of the box, that this version does, in fact, exist. I saw her up close and personal at Target today. Upon my return home, I googled the doll's name to see if merchants were still omitting information about this version.
Toys R Us does have the AA version on their website (the source of the above product description). The doll is currently $25 at TRU since all Barbies, play sets, and accessories are 50% off (valid through today, 10/13/12, excludes collector dolls).
