Brands Are Now Marketing To BabiesMargaret Hartmann10/02/11 11:01pmFiled to: Kids TodayChildrenAdvertisingshutterstock32EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkChildren are already exposed to plenty of advertising, but now companies are going after kids who aren't even old enough to say, "Mommy, I want that." Despite the fact that many of them are mainly interested in eating, pooping, and figuring out how to use their appendages, many brands are targeting the infant to 3-year-old demographic.Earlier, we learned that Disney reps are now visiting moms hours after delivery and offering a free onsie in exchange for an e-mail address and a lifetime of product loyalty. But Disney isn't the only company attempting to hook kids when they're absurdly young. AdWeek reports that high end brands including Versace, Fendi, and Marc Jacobs have recently introduced clothing lines for toddlers, and they aren't just hoping to attract wealthy parents who can afford to laugh it off when their child dribbles pureed carrots down the front of a $900 sweater. They're also trying to create a relationship with the infant, in the hope that 30 years down the line they'll buy their own kid a new designer ensemble every three months.
