It's your kid's turn to spy on you

Remote-controlled car has video camera that sends live feeds

How quickly the tables can turn. Just the other day, we were relishing the thought of sneaking up on friends and loved ones with a Webcam-toting robot spy . Now we find out that another kind of surveillance tool is on the market, and it's for kids.

It looks like an innocent remote-controlled car, but the $100 toy vehicle is mounted with a video camera that sends live feeds back to its operator--which, by Target's definition, is anyone aged 8 and up. To top it off, this thing can even work in the dark with a night-vision feature, and its accompanying headset will make your kid look like a Borg.

Next to a set of drums, it may be a parent's worst nightmare.
