Re: “Pixar Kindly Exposes Kids to Its Products

Yeah, the last thing my 2-year-old wanted to see when he was having an asthma attack and waiting to get a chest x-ray at Children's at 2 am was a mural featuring characters from his beloved Finding Nemo. It would have really made his evening much worse to know that he was being BLATENTLY marketed to. Geez man, cut Children's (and Pixar) a little slack. It's a nice gift because kids know and like the characters from the movie. Yes, of course they know the movie because it's sold and marketed to them, but I think they damage is done loooong before the kids start waiting for their diagnostic imaging appointments. At that point, it's just a small sliver of comfort in the midst of what was, in my son's case, a terrifying experience.
