Instant Survey: Consumer Kids

When my friends had a baby last month they made it clear that they had plenty of stuff and that no gifts were expected. But I could not restrain myself from the lure of the cute snuggly Bamboosa cap at my local eco-baby store. Surely something so innocent as an environmentally-friendly tiny little hat couldn't be bad for the planet, right? It got me to thinking about consumption for kids; there is such a whimsical appeal to toy stores and small clothes, all of it shrouded in the innocence of youth. Yet we know that the marketing to and for kids is out of control. We're curious about your kids (if you've got 'em) are they consumer kids?
