    Video Girl Barbie and tattooed Barbie raise concerns

    Mattel's new Barbie has ink. For $50 the Tokidoki Barbie doll comes with cheetah leggings, pink hair, a toy dog, silver shoes and tattoos on the neck, chest and arm.
    We found the doll on Mattel's collector website where it's described as a "funky fashionista" featuring "trendy tattoos and a pink bob."
    Also on Mattel's website, but in smaller font, the Tokidoki Barbie is listed "for the adult collector."

    But none of Barbie’s careers so far has been as controversial as her role as videographer. A camera, built into the necklace emblazoned on the new Video Girl Barbie’s chest, can take up to 30 minutes of video that can then be downloaded to a computer. Among those least amused by Barbie’s new career: the FBI.

    The FBI sent out a Cyber Crime Alert (no longer available online) from its Sacramento Field Office at the end of November, which was then leaked to the public. The doll, warned the FBI, could be used by child predators.

    Mattel’s press materials for Video Girl Barbie assert that, “unsuspecting subjects won’t know that Barbie is watching their every move.” The camera is hidden in her necklace, her legs store the batteries, and there’s a tiny LCD on her back along with controls. Videos can be transferred via mini-USB cable and don’t require proprietary software to view or edit. According to the Mattel website, Video Girl, which sells for $49.99, has been nominated for Toy of the Year 2011. "Capture everything from a dolls-eye view and then watch it instantly or upload to your computer,” it advertises. “Talk about making movies in style!"

    Like most Barbie controversies, this one caught on like wildfire. The FBI has since said that the document was intended for internal use by law enforcement, not the media, and was apparently sent to news organizations by mistake. For its part, Mattel responded to the outcry in a statement to Reuters that said, “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.”
