Barbie: FBI's most wanted?

Has Barbie become one of the FBI's Most Wanted?

This article appeared in the newspapers on December 9, 2010 and I thought it was worth mentioning on this blog. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has issued an alert recently about Video Girl Barbie, which it says could be used by paedophiles to entice children and make child pornography.

The dolls come with a small video camera built into the chest with the lens hidden in her necklace . The camera can record about 30 minutes of footage, which can be downloaded to a computer. Click on the picture below to read the full article.

FBI Spokesman Steve Dupre said that the alert sent out by its Sacramento office last month was meant only for law enforcement agencies but was mistakenly sent to some TV stations as well.

So, has Barbie really become a femme fatale (French for "deadly woman")? Consider yourself warned ;p
