I learnt that there were rules put in place to stop brands from advertising their products to young children in such ways as bedding, curtains and dolls (e.g. Strawberry Shortcake). However, advertises found a way around this by creating short 15-30 minute animations for their products which then became a ‘cartoon’ over time.
