Lawmakers Question Mattel About Child-Focused Smart Hub

Children's health and privacy advocates are petitioning toy giant Mattel not to release a kid-focused smart hub called Aristotle, which they argue gives an unprecedented look into the personal lives of children. The issue has drawn attention from Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.), who sent Mattel a letter last week asking the toymaker for more information on how it will store and retain data it collects on children.
