**Lead:** [Prof Marina Jirotka](https://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/people/marina.jirotka/) Embedded in Prof Jirotka's [Established Career Fellowship](https://gtr.ukri.org/projects?ref=EP%2FS005099%2F1), we are using Smart Toys as a case study to understand and develop responsible innovation approaches in the context of social robotics aimed at children. This includes both aiming to anticipate the potential consequences---positive and negative---of introducing such interactive technologies into family life; as well as investigating an innovative design feature: the [Ethical Black Box](https://www.robotips.co.uk/ethical-black-box) that enables a post-hoc investigation, should an accident happen.">
