Saying that the new Barbie Video Girl can be used for child pornography is kind of like saying that a cucumber can be used as a baseball bat. Nevertheless, that’s what people are saying, and the FBI has purportedly gotten involved. For the record, no one yet has hit a homerun with a cucumber been accused of using the Barbie to lure and record young children.

Now that the components that make up webcams and digital cameras are small enough to shove into everything, childrens’ toys have seen a golden age of photography. This Video Girl Barbie is not the first camera toy aimed at children. Fisher Price has had both digital-still and video cameras out for at least a year.

So, let’s all relax a little and take a deep, good-parent breath. You teach your kids right from wrong. You teach them to run from strangers. You teach them that when people touch their no-noes, it’s a no-no. While Video Girl Barbie is a slightly retarded concept, it’s probably not actually cause for panic. We should probably be more worried about the fact that she still dresses like a whore.
