Toy maker Mattel is eying the child predator population as an untapped market to bolster its bottom line. Anyone who watches cable news these days, knows that child predators represent a significant portion of the population, for which there are barely enough children to go around. One can hardly blame a toy company for seeing dollar signs at the mere thought of the absolute deficit of tools available to assist child predators in their mission.
CNN, in kind of a how-to video, evaluated one of the latest entries in the arsenal of pedophile gear which just happens to be an innovative predator-cam cleverly disguised as a harmless Barbie doll. Meet Barbie Video Girl!
But, the ever watchful FBI is already onto Mattel’s plan to outfit the pervert population with advanced child porn video production technology and has issued a warning.
According to the CNN report:
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 alert backs up their warning with cold hard numbers illustrating the pervasive use of Barbie dolls as an enticement to lure children into the clutches of child sexual predators from coast to coast:
“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.
It is certainly commendable that the FBI has taken time out from its mission of tracking down terrorists out to annihilate the American population in order to warn the public of the imminent danger posed by what most people naively see as a harmless doll.
While Mattel may be boycotted by parents who see only the negative side to child predators, those parents probably wield only a tiny fraction of the market power commanded by the huge population of pedophiles and their various trade associations.
It’s no wonder Barbie Video Girl is one of Mattel’s toy of the year award nominees.
Given Barbie Video Girl’s body scan profile, she will probably be denied access to air travel.

I highly recommend reading an essay over at the Honest Courtesan about Barbie’s beginnings as a sexy adult doll named Lilli.
