Surely the problem is simply that anyone who is in it for the money cares very little about the effect it has on the consumer?
Look at all of the unpleasant, sweet, fatty, salty confections that are aimed at children; look at all the rubbish television that they are invited to watch.
One could hope for a granddaugher like Hennothefirst's, but the reality is that most children like to be part of the herd, however individualistic they are at heart.
I cannot work out where my beautiful, intelligent, idioscyncratic granddaughter (aged 5) learned to love pink - not from her family, that is for sure. But she does love pink.
I vowed at her birth I was never going to buy her pink clothes, and I have stuck to it. But it is really hard to find attractive colours for an alternative. And she does look gorgeous in blue...
