New Barbie Video Girl Doll could be used for child porn

Category World | Saturday, December 4th, 2010

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.

“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.

Default Re: Mattel and Child Pornography

I invite Mattel to comment on this thread as to the pupose of their "VIDEO" Barbie doll, cause, quite frankly, I just don't get the FBI warning.
