The last paragraph of the article, "Selling to Children", implies that there are only two empirical studies examining the impact of commercialization on children. This is not correct; there is a large and rich literature examining various aspects of the effects of commercialization on children, most of which are cited in two papers of the APA Task Force on Advertising and Children. It is true, however, that the task force found only two empirical studies examining the impact of commercial practices within schools on children.
