Group wants Fisher-Price iPad bouncy seat recallDecember 10, 2013 by Jennifer C. Kerr in Technology / Consumer & Gadgets
Ahh, the first year of a baby's life—the milestones, wonder and joy. They learn to sit up, crawl and some walk. But how about playtime in their bouncy seat with an iPad and some cool apps?
Fisher-Price is selling a baby bouncy seat with an attachment where parents can insert an iPad so baby can watch video content aimed at the youngest children—an idea that is being criticized by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood.
The Boston-based advocacy group wants Fisher-Price to recall its Newborn-to-Toddler Apptivity Seat for iPads. The group says it's not healthy for a baby's development and encourages parents to leave baby alone.
A reporter's telephone and email messages seeking company comment were left with a spokesperson for Mattel, Fisher-Price's parent company.
