I hope this is the right forum to post this in, my apologies if not. I just cannot get over how they are peddling Twilight (Eclipse even!) to children. We don't usually get kids meals at all, but my daughters' birthday party was this weekend and the grandparents came to take them out for a little while so we could finish cleaning and getting ready. They took them to Burger King b/c its the only place in town with an inside playground and its 100 degrees out right now. They came back wearing Edward and Jacob burger king crowns and a holographic (sparkling) Edward ring as a toy. I was so disgusted and I don't know, shocked? that I didn't even know what to say. Twilight for the 3-7 crowd. My 7 year old held up the ring and said, "Look mom, it has a boy on it!" Thank you, Burger King. Before that day, she didn't have a clue what Twilight even was. Now she wants to know all of their names.
Now, I've always been against marketing to children, but this, in my opinion, is a little extreme. Its clearly a YOUNG ADULT book, not a children's book and its a PG-13 movie they are promoting. Its blatantly wrong on many, many levels.
I was just wondering is anyone else upset over this? Can I get some input as to how to go about complaining properly, who to contact, what to do, etc? I would very much appreciate it.
