Sure. But kids' tv has always had toy adverts. I don't think that displaying toy ads in between content is somehow new and horrific.

And the tracking case is hard to understand. How does that work when the child is using a parent's device? Not exactly a clean data set, and youtube kids is there to restrict tracking. From the Youtube Kids privacy policy:

The app does not allow interest-based advertising or remarketing.

YouTube Kids does not allow your child to share personal information with third parties or make it publicly available.

I guess we're going to find out exactly what that means, which is a good thing.
