FBI warning for new Barbie

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • FBI issues a cyber crime alert to law agencies about new Barbie "Video Girl"
  • Alert is also inadvertently sent to media outlets
  • Pedophiles could use the doll's videotaping feature to make child porn, FBI says
  • FBI, toymaker Mattel Inc. say no such incidents have occurred

(CNN) -- The FBI is warning law agencies that the new Barbie "Video Girl" doll could be used as a tool by pedophiles to make child pornography.

In an alert entitled "Barbie 'Video Girl' a Possible Child Pornography Production Method, " the FBI said the doll has a built-in hidden camera in the chest and a small LCD screen for video display in her back.

The FBI "cyber crime alert" doesn't cite any misuse of the doll, which has been on the market since July, but talks about the possibility.

"FBI investigation has revealed instances where an individual convicted of distributing child pornography had given a Barbie doll to a 6 year old girl, " the alert said.

The document went on to cite the findings of another investigation that found "examples where a concealed video camera had recorded child pornography." That camera didn't involve a doll, FBI special agent Frederick Gutt in Seattle, Washington, said Friday.

'Video Girl' Barbie a pedophile tool?

"The possibility of the combination of these two in a single device presents a concern for investigators, " said the alert, dated November 30.

"Law enforcement is encouraged to be aware of unconventional avenues for possible production and possession of child pornography, such as the Barbie Video Girl, " the document said.

The FBI regularly distributes such alerts to help investigators improve policing. No incidents involving the new doll have been reported, according to Gutt and another FBI special agent, Steve Dupre.

The doll's camera can capture 30 minutes of footage, and the video can be downloaded and streamed live to a computer, but there is no indication it can be streamed directly to the Internet, the FBI alert said.

The notice is written for law agencies only, but someone at the FBI mistakenly sent it to media outlets in Seattle, said Dupre of the FBI's Sacramento, California, office, which distributed the notice.

"It was an inadvertent dissemination of the document, " Dupre said. "There have been no reported incidents of this doll being used as anything other than as intended."

Seattle media accounts of the FBI alert prompted some parents to express concerns about the doll.

"That plays into these people who prey upon our children's ideals. It frightens me, " William Porres, a Tacoma, Washington, grandfather, told CNN affiliate KING. He said he will not buy the doll for his 6-year-old granddaughter.

"Oh, she would love it, but she's more important to me than a giggle on Christmas morning, " Porres said.

A Mattel Inc. spokesman could not be reached for comment, but the toymaker issued a statement to KING:

"The FBI is not reporting that anything has happened. Steve Dupre from the FBI Sacramento field office has confirmed there have been no incidents of this doll being used as anything other than its intent. Mattel products are designed with children and their best interests in mind. Many of Mattel's employees are parents themselves and we understand the importance of child safety -- it is our number one priority, " the statement said.

About Barbie Video Girl

From way down there near the bottom of the page, the video of the Barbie Video Girl is pretty cool. So I just had to look up the price. Amazon has them for about $50 and they're available in both White Barbie and Black Barbie versions.
Being a right ol' perve I've laughed at more than a couple severe misuses of the iconic doll. My favs have always been the various kinky/bondage Barbies. But now that she has a camera embedded in her chest I can think of all sorts of fun x-rated video fun! Now you can have Babs' perspective as GI Joe gives it to her up front or see how it looks to ram a strap-on into a bent-over Ken

PrincessPauper Barbie for AA girl

Via Adopt-a-family, I'm buying a gift for an African American girl. She wants a Princess doll from Princess and the Pauper, a "hot" toy series from Barbie. From what I can find, it's based on a video that features a blond and brunette princess (white) and is advertised a lot on tv. All the associated toys feature pictures of the two white princesses. However, I've discovered that there are Afric...the white blond and brunette), and are featured in the video? Or, would she want the two that look more like her?? If I gave her the two AA versions would she be disappointed that she didn't get the ones she saw on tv, or would she be happier because they look more like her?
I thought about getting one of each, but the point of the story is that they look enough alike that they trade places

I'm hoping to get the opinion of an African American girl who wants one of these dolls, because I'm getting mixed opinions from different people I've spoken with. Many thanks!
