A baby girl has become an internet start after a video of her playing the superhero Iron Man attracted millions of hits on YouTube.

Baby Margaret's father, Patrick Boivin, who is a filmmaker and a former comic book creator from Montreal, created the short film.

The video, which has attracted more than 2.7 million hits so far, sees the little girl being transformed from a toddler into the Iron Man superhero.

She starts off playing Tony Stark - wearing a bib - and then thanks to 3-D artist Jocelyn Strob Simard, who did the special effects, she turns into the Iron Man courtesy of a tiny armoured costume.

Margaret then flies off to fight some toy bunnies, battling them with laser beams which she fires from the palm of her hand.

Mr Boivin has apparently had offers from film producers following the video's success on the internet.

The Daily Mail reports that the film cost virtually nothing and took two months to make.

The father is open about his reasons for making the film - he says it's all about publicising his talents.

Mr Boivin told the Toronto Star: "It's a way of showing what we can do together to companies who are interested in working with us. It has been a success for me."

He says Margaret enjoyed making the film and he may well make more with his baby daughter.

"I'm pretty sure I'm going to do some more clips with my girl", Mr Boivin said.

What do you think of the video? And is it acceptable for parents to use their children like this?
