(Scroll down for video) A company created a doll that can answer the questions of curious children.

The unique doll can have a conversation with children and answer their questions correctly.

The doll can also help children do their homework.

“My friend Cayla” is designed to synchronize with a smartphone or tablet computer and can recognize speech.

When a child asks the doll a question, the spoken words are transformed into text.

The doll then uses a Google software to surf the web for the answers.

The technology uses Google SafeSearch so that it gets child friendly answers.

Parents can log on to an application to block any word they deem inappropriate.

The pretty 18 inch, long haired doll costs £59.99 (about $100).
