Barbie Video Girl

The new Barbie for Christmas is Matelle's Barbie Video Girl. As a parent I would think twice about buying the Barbie Video Girl for your little girl. It's a doll your daughter can make videos of herself with and then post them on and the website has video movie contests for your child to enter . The new Barbie Doll has been put on the FBI's watch list for pedophiles. This is a digital world and what your children knows about using a computer would surprise you. As a parent, you should always be aware of what you child is doing on the Internet.  Anyone can create a profile on and portray themselves as being a child, including a pedophile. The website also allows your child to chat on the website. Your child my think they are talking to another child, but they can talking to a pedophile. I would be a little sketchy about allowing my daughter to post videos of herself online. Once they are on the internet, they are on the internet forever and you never know who maybe watching them. Toys like the Video Barbie Doll is opening up new avenues for pedophiles and making it harder for us to protect our children.
