You know the end is nigh...

.... when your 22 month old kid sees this little toy eraser and says:

'mama, where's the M?'

I think I have to add that she's only been to Mcdonalds 4 times in her life, and at 18 months before we had ever been there, she started to point out the golden arches whenever we drove around... she'd see the big 'M' way before we did, and she wasn't even associating it with the food!

I actually think it's kind of scary, marketing to kids... that it works on a child that young, I think she recognised the M because they sponsor sesame street? We were shocked when she started pointing it out, I didn't even know she could recognise letters yet, let alone the McD's logo!

Yikes. If you don't like marketing to kids, go to www.commercialfreechildhood.org. They're my favorite advocacy group.
