Group wants Fisher Price to recall its iPad bouncy seat

32 sec read

Fisher-Price is selling an infant seat with an attachment where parents can insert an iPad so baby can watch video content aimed at the youngest children, an idea that is being criticized by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood. The Boston-based advocacy group started an online petition campaign Tuesday, urging Fisher-Price to recall its Newborn-to-Toddler Apptivity Seat for iPads.

Detailed by ABC News today, a Boston-based advocacy group called Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood (CCFC) is petitioning Fisher-Price to remove the iPad Apptivity Seat from the company’s product lineup. Demonstrated by a rapidly growing collection of negative reviews on Amazon, parents seem to be upset that this iPad accessory is being sold.  Citing studies from the American Academy of Pediatrics that recommend restricting screen time for children under two, parents are concerned that a continual stream of videos on the iPad could harm language development in infants and toddlers.
