Mattel is working on the new interactive Hello Barbie.

Mattel is partnering with San Francisco startup ToyTalk, to create Hello Barbie, an Internet-connected version of the doll that has real conversations with kids.

She picks up cues from what you say and can remember things from past conversations, and just like a real friend and react to people.

Hello Barbie is connected to Wi-Fi and her software constantly updates.

She is just a prototype right now but the goal is to have the doll ready for sale by Christmas.
