The problem with watching toys
Jack Paley wrote a research paper on the ethical and psychological problems with children toy unboxing videos on YouTube. His paper explored how these videos blur the line between content and hidden advertisements.
The paper looks into the world of modern paid promotion as well as how this type of toy unboxing video can harm children’s developmental growth and limit creativity.
Paley’s work was featured at the Spring 2023 Undergraduate Research Symposium.
