Mattel has scrapped a “smart home” device designed with kids in mind after awful reviews and privacy concerns.
“Aristotle” was first shown off at CES earlier this year.

The red-and-white device is meant to be kept in a child’s room where its WiFi-enabled camera acts primarily as a voice-controlled baby monitor.
It can adjust lighting levels, noting when babies wake up and then playing a lullaby or turning on a night light.
The device also claimed to be able to extensively interact with a young child.
It can recognize and answer questions, play games, do singalongs, and teach the ABCs.

Aristotle’s voice-interaction capabilities are intended to be like a kid-centric version of Amazon’s Alexa.
