Answer by Margaret Weiss:

It is an issue of morality, so just like other topics you had listed, it goes to the heart of what barriers would movie makers cross to get to the audience; will the age stop them?

A more elaborate response is within this link: Marketing & Consumerism – Special Issues for Young Children

Let me quote one reference:

“Advertising at its best is making people feel that without their product, you’re a loser. Kids are very sensitive to that.”
– Nancy Shalek (former president Grey Advertising)
