Smart Toys and Devices:

We thought it would be useful to share some advice about keeping children safe with smart toys and devices. There are more tech toys than ever before, and many of them use bluetooth or wifi to link to apps and the wider internet. Some of these toys will have cameras and microphones recording the environment and the child's play.

The video in this 'Which' Magazine article shows the potential danger to children.
