Attorney Advertising. Keller Rohrback L.L.P. is investigating recent reports that Hello Barbie, a product of Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAT), violated children’s privacy by storing conversations between the Hello Barbie doll and child on a hackable cloud. Of particular concern is the potentiality that the doll could be hacked by a predator who could talk directly with a child through the doll.

Hello Barbie is pre-programmed with more than 8,000 recorded lines and costs about $75. The doll retains up to three different WiFi locations and does not require a smart device after WiFi configuration.

Hello Barbie was recently named one of the worst toys of the year by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, which described it as “the perfect storm of a terrible toy, and threatens children’s privacy, wellbeing, and creativity.” Concerns over the doll’s hackable cloud are both financial and safety-based. Children are not only talking to the doll, they are talking to a large toy conglomerate whose primary interest in them is financial. Even more startling is the apparent ease at which someone can take over the doll’s voice, asking children questions like “where do you live?” or “is anyone home?”
