Barbie doll’s maker sues over robot toys

Barbie dolls maker Big Bad Toys filed a lawsuit against Robotic Toys International, Inc. and others claiming the dolls were designed to resemble sex toys and sold illegally online.

Robotic Toys is a company based in California that specializes in the manufacture of sex toys, toys designed to imitate sexual organs and sex toys designed for use with robots.

Big Bad toys claims that the Barbie doll is “a sexually explicit toy for children, with the goal of arousing sexual desire.”

Robotic toys said it would have to make a “substantial financial commitment” to comply with the law, according to the suit.

Robot Toys International filed a motion to dismiss the case earlier this month.

BigBad Toys declined to comment to ABC News.

The suit also asks for a jury trial.
