We've always wanted a driver's-eye view from a Hot Wheels car, haven't you? Later this year you'll be able to get a Hot Wheels Video Racer that has an embedded camera that captures video that you can later view on your computer or TV. You get 12 minutes of built-in memory, as well as a built-in LCD screen on the Video Racer's chassis. A USB cable is included for transferring your videos to your PC.

The Video Racer is due out this fall for $59.99 a car.

The Little Mommy My Very Real Baby Doll features interactive light and motion technology that Mattel says brings "nurturing" to the next level. The doll asks for juice and responds to objects, like a Teddy bear, when you place them in her hands. And when you "feed" her a juice pop, her mouth turns green.

This very real doll is due to hit stores this fall for $74.99.
