    Consumer watchdog Which? has called on retailers to stop selling some popular toys it says have "proven" security issues.

    Those toys include Furby Connect, the i-Que robot, Cloudpets and Toy-fi Teddy.

    Which? found that there was no authentication required between the toys and the devices they could link with via Bluetooth.

    Two of the manufacturers said they took security very seriously.
