The US “No Commercial Childhood” organization recently called on the US Fisher Toys Company to stop selling baby seats with iPads. The group issued a statement on the 10th that the product would cause parents to prefer to leave the baby alone to watch the screen, prevent the baby from touching the real world, and reduce the interaction between the baby and the parent.
According to reports, the organization’s statement cited a survey by the American Academy of Pediatrics that the time it takes for a baby under two to face the screen is related to a range of child problems, including language development delays, sleep disorders, and childhood learning problems. Infants who watch the screen alone cannot perform hands-on activities that benefit the brain. Susan Lynn, the group’s leader, said: “Fisher’s manufacture of this product limits the baby’s ability to interact and communicate with parents before it is restricted to electronic screens, which is very detrimental to the healthy growth of the baby.”
Fisher's spokeswoman Juliette said in a statement on the 11th that consumers who bought the product responded well, "the increase in parental participation." She said the product is designed to help parents educate their babies about age. The company installs free apps on the iPad that provide soft sound, beautiful natural landscapes, black-and-white images, and high-contrast images to boost your baby's vision. For larger babies, alphanumeric learning is provided. These applications will automatically stop after 10 to 12 minutes of operation to prevent excessive viewing time.
