This thing is real. I am not kidding. The face moves, the doll has voice recognition, it can sing and make animal noises. The doll (Amazing Amanda) can play games with you (or your kid) such as funny faces. She also recognizes her food (via RFID technology). Amanda speaks english, has 32 megabits of memory and she's scary.
