So why on earth do car manufacturers exclusively heavily feature children in their adverts?

I am a grown up. If I want to buy a car I will choose it not my DCs.

Any road up, as you were.

Really? You don't know why car ads feature children?!

It's to show that the car is suitable for a family.

Coz you gotta spend the child allowance on petrol innit?

Parents buy cars.
Parents have children.

The thing is that they dont feature children. They dont say 'look, your kids and all their clobber will fit in this car'. No, they say 'look kids, isnt this a really great car!'

Why? I bought a car recently, I didnt take my DCs with me and they are old enough to have an opinion (if I was going to pay attention to it!)

I keep buying cars quite forgetting that I have children so they are possibly aimed at people like me. grin

"Taxi for Dearie!"

Is this really all you have to think and/or post about ffs? Really?

But who chooses their car because their DCs will be impressed by it?

Any road up, I had better go and name change again.

good grief Kim, you obviously understand these adverts far better than I do, I thought he was just trying to impress his son!

I have only been on MN for a few years (regular NCer), I have finally been handed my arse for starting a lighthearted thread.

I have arrived!
