The Award For the Worst Christmas Toy Goes to: iPotty by CTA Digital

CTADigital.com

There are some really great children’s toys but then there are some really awful ones. So which should you steer clear of buying this Christmas?

Well, when it comes to good Christmas gifts, the iPotty isn’t one of them. Guess I won’t be buying it for my about-to-be-potty-trained nephew.

With 45% of the vote, the iPotty beat out runner-up VIP Upgrade Membership by The Real Tooth Fairies (30%) to win the 2013 Toys Oppressive and Destructive to Young children Award given by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood.

A bunch of  people were asked to vote on what toys they thought were the best and the worst and then why they felt the way they did. When asked why this toy was so destructive, one voter said, “Toilet learning should be a time of positive interaction between child and caregiver. Also, children should be aware of the cues in their bodies as they learn. This toy takes this social/emotional focus out of the process and substitutes the hypnotism of a screen.”
