Click View Text Advertisers sometimes use strategies that can mislead children. Answer Choices Advertisements can be misleading to children when the advertisements use audio and visual formats that are especially appealing to children. Children may not be able to interpret exaggerated claims made by advertisers or understand the disclaimers used to offset claims. Although the use of celebrities is not necessarily effective in advertisements aimed at children, there is evidence that host selling can positively affect their views of a product. Studies show that misleading tactics are used most often in commercials for breakfast cereals, with toy commercials using such tactics only slightly less frequently. The use of fantasy is especially common in advertisements for children, but children may not be able to distinguish fantasy from reality. Very young children are particularly influenced by host selling, while slightly older children are more readily misled by seemingly rational claims such as "the best."
