Marketing aimed at very young children and teens has been a field of active study and implementation since the much too much honored 1950's and increasing to insanity ever since with the unknowing and sometimes active participation of adults and authority figures; culture and society are done, over.

Regarding Amazit, Walmart is considered prole or relatively down-rent in the NY Metro area. In fact in my slice of the NYC hell the political class has fought the opening of their shopping centers as a threat to local businesses, however they seem to have no problem with other mega stores. I can cross a bridge with a toll and highway driving to another state to get to my nearest store in perhaps 25 minutes traffic depending, but the other residents in other boroughs of NYC hell are faced with at least an hour trip if not impossible for them. Funny how Amazon positioned one of their most recent large distribution centers here in the city and is looking for other locations within the city limits. Amazon is practically a religion here in NYC along with Uber. Amazon's plan is probably to overcharge the city iPhone crowd who accepts the higher cost of living. NY'ers for the most part do not even bother to check prices on certain things. This is Amazit target marketing. They are seeking a captive market of convenience purchasers. Walmart if it was smart should do what some of the Japanese car manufacturers did when they created a luxury label based upon their base quality and infrastructure to target consumers who found the very good value cars not sophisticated enough.

Did not HL Mencken say something to the effect, "nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people."
