The Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) continues to pressure the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to stop marketing violent movies such as The Dark Knight and Iron Man to preschool-aged children.
The CCFC writes on their website: “Burger King Iron Man toy giveaways for preschoolers. Indiana Jones Lunchables. Incredible Hulk toys for children as young as three. The Dark Knight Cheerios. The MPAA could stop this onslaught but they won’t.”
The Federal Trade Commission has asked the MPAA to develop a policy that ensures that PG-13 movies will not be marketed in a way inconsistent with their rating.
Now you can also express your concern and ask the MPAA to protect small children from violent movies. Visit the CCFC website for more information: salsa.democracyinaction.org.
