TV Interactive Toys: The New High-Tech Threat to Children

by Pamela Tuchscherer

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is a thoughtful, careful analysis of children's TV viewing and the harm caused by the violence of children's programming. Tuchscherer, an educator, is especially critical of the new trigger-equipped power toys that can be activated by children in response to television programs, or that TV signals can activate in the child's hand, creating a kind of electronic duel. Believing these toys desensitize children and have a more negative effect than violent programming alone, she offers many positive alternatives. Excellent appendixes and a good index. A wise choice for a ``parent's corner'' or any library in need of new material on the effect of TV violence on children. Annette V. Janes, Hamilton P.L., Mass.
