Take it another step.... it's not advertiser adapting to the childrens needs/wants... but the advertiser are creating the demand for product that the kids didn't even know they wanted..
1st noticable case was cabbage patch kids... they produced it just in time for christmas, then controlled the inventory, causing panic...
just an example of a advertising company taking a product from 0 sales to one of the most sought after products...
each year now the market tries to recreate that effect.. can you name this past years must have product??

Now..... Kid makes bad grades, kid acts up in school, kid is in constant trouble= Kid gets new paint gun and angry neighbor has multi colored, spotted car,house,dog. Kid gets ask by mom/dad son/daughter do you feel neglected because mommy and daddy have to work? Son/daughter replies yes it's all your fault. Parents feel terrible, kid gets a new play station Game! Suffers very minimal consequences, parent eases guilty conscience. Angry neighbor gets Angrier!(kid stays up all night playing new game, keeps parents awake who have to go to work next morning, because kid has done nothing to make them tired!And consumed large amounts of sugar and soda)
I am the kid in the first example, and the angry neighbor in the second example, Toy manufacturers have had to have been both at one point in their life and knew a kid like said child in second example.
Answer= kids today are spoiled, lazy, and get out of trouble with very minimal punishments, by using the "My mom and dad both work defense." They have every toy you can possibly imagine and some that frighten parents. And don't appreciate them at all because they were just handed to them for no reason. And they've never had to follow the neighbors multi-colored ,polka-dotted dog around the yard to make a wrong rite! Kid saves allowance he/she gets for taking out trash every other Sunday, after tired overworked parents remind child to do so. kid uses allowance to buy stock in Play school, Mattel, exc...Then becomes President of Toy company because he/she wants to make the graphics on the play station games better than the OLD boring ones they played as a child!
(Angry neighbors rant on message boards about their multi-colored polka-dotted dog, and gets hate mail from strangers because he/she stepped on some ones toes for insinuating children are spoiled,overweight and lazy.)
Kids used to work(in some way,shape or form) to get a store bought toy. kids had to use their brain to figure out creative ways to work to afford new toys.
Kids today use emotional black mail on parents/grandparents to get ever new toy they see on TV. kids today fry their brains by watching too much TV and playing with all their new toys.
PS. Ihate that stupid dancing purple dinosaur named Barney!
I too, hope I wasn't too far out in left field with my reply.
