"Items that conceal cameras or microphones and that are capable of transmitting a signal, and therefore can transmit data without detection, compromise people's privacy," said agency president Jochen Homann in a statement. "This applies in particular to children's toys. The Cayla doll has been banned in Germany."

Presumably Xbox, iStuff, Windows 10, Alexa and all the other voice activated junk is on the list behind Cayla and they will announce those next week ?

After all, they all do the same thing and are all used by children.
