    An official watchdog in Germany has told parents to destroy a talking doll called Cayla because its smart technology can reveal personal data. The warning was issued by the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur), which oversees telecommunications. Researchers say hackers can use an unsecure bluetooth device embedded in the toy to listen and talk to the child playing with it. But the UK Toy Retailers Association said Cayla "offers no special risk". In a statement sent to the BBC, the TRA also said "there is no reason for alarm". The Vivid Toy group, which distributes My Friend Cayla, has previously said...

The "You & Me Interactive Triplets," which are being sold at Toys R Us stores in Orlando, are causing the uproar because one of the dolls can be heard saying what appears to be the phrase, "Hey, crazy b****."

Toys R Us said it has received a number...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - When 18-year-old Tyell Morton put a blow-up sex doll in a bathroom stall on the last day of school, he didn't expect school officials to call a bomb squad or that he'd be facing up to eight years in prison and a possible felony record. The senior prank gone awry has raised questions of race, prosecutorial zeal and the post-Columbine mindset in a small Indiana town and around the country, The Indianapolis Star reported in its Tuesday editions. Legal experts question the appropriateness of the charges against Morton, and law professor Jonathan Turley at George Washington University...

    Hero Builders An Oxford company has released an action figure inspired by the capture of Osama bin Laden. Navy SEALs have become national heroes since news broke that they took down Osama bin Laden, so it’s fitting that the newest action figure from a Connecticut company is a fierce looking President Barack Obama as a SEAL. The minute Obama said late on the night of May 1 that the U.S. had found and killed bin Laden, Emil Vicale knew which his action figure company’s would make next -- Rambama. On Wednesday morning, Hero Builders released the Obama SEAL Team 6...
  • Would You Buy Your Daughter a Doll That She Breastfeeds?

    04/01/2011 3:08:51 PM PDT · by Lucky9teen · 28 replies
    Is this breastfeeding doll, aimed at young girls, the stuff of a pedophile’s fantasy? Or is it a harmless toy that teaches young girls the importance of nurturing and parenting–skills that she will need in the future? The doll, which hits U.S. stores this spring, is called the Breast Milk Baby, and has already been sold in the European market for a couple of years: A doll that imitates a breast-feeding infant teaches nurturing, the toy’s maker says, but some parents are outraged.

    Kohls sells clothing to fit an 18" doll, along with a matching outfit for the girl to wear. Nightgowns seem to be the most popular of these. Only, it seems someone forgot to set the dye! Perspiration from little hands causes the dye to bleed, where it then stains everything those little hands touch. (I work for a doll company, and we've been getting a lot of calls from people whose brand-new dolls are now ruined. Not to mention their sofa, carpet, wallpaper, etc, etc) Further details as they become available.

    Throughout this recession Obama was busy creating jobs — website storefronts, mall shops and street vendors eagerly peddled Obama memorabilia allowing the general public to actually touch the 'birth of hope' and capture his moment in history. Alas, this once seemingly recession-proof industry is now struggling to survive. The Washington Post reports, “Sales peaked at the height of Obamamania, between the election and the inauguration.” “In Union Station, the souvenir shop once dubbed the Obama Store because of its mostly Obama-related selection has closed. [...] That moment in history is gone," said Molly Andolina, a professor of political science at DePaul...
