Barbie celebrates 50 years with MP3 player

Barbie turns the big 50 this year, and to celebrate reaching such a milestone, Mattel has released an MP3 player that Barbie would be proud to put her name on.

Commissioned by INNO Design, the MP3 player is encased in a mirrored compact which opens up to reveal all the controls needed to control your tracks and a mini-LCD screen for displaying track names.

It also features 2GB of storage, FM radio and a USB connection for linking up to your computer.

Apparently only available at Fred Segal stores in America, the Barbie MP3 player is available in a number of different colours - including a shameless bubblegum pink colour fit for Barbie herself.

Prices vary between $93 to $165, with no news on if we can expect a European release any time soon.
