There are so many amazing toys hitting the shelves this season but if your child has an internet connected toy, the FBI says be alert. Hackers could gain access to the wifi connected toys to collect data that could put your child at risk. 

In an advisory on their website, the FBI said these toys have GPS, microphones, and cameras that could capture personal information.
The warning said normal conversation captured by these toys like a child’s name, address, likes and dislikes and where they go to school could be damaging information to have out in the open. 
 

The Wall Street Journal Created a video that talked about the risks a few months ago.
