Newsmy MP3 dolls will entertain, creep out your children

Laura June

From the looks of it, there's a fierce storm brewing (see photo), and it's probably due to our excitement at the prospects of this rather unsettling MP3 doll for children. There's a real paucity of information about the fire-haired pair, but their names appear to me Man-Man and Niu Niu. Their controls seem to be in the hands and feet, they boast an automatic shutdown feature, and the players are "hidden" in the guts of the doll to ensure safety. That doesn't really do a whole lot to reassure us that the dolls aren't somehow dangerous, but as long as they don't scream "give me the boy and I'll let you live!" we figure it's probably fine. No details about price or availability.

[Thanks, Bill]
