    “Her brain will triple in size by the time she’s two… So you can help her shine a little more every day.”Cum hoc ergo propter hoc.

  2. Marketing, marketing, marketing. And parents by the thousands fall for it every time they walk in a store. Ridiculous. Maybe they should make a juice for the parents to combat stupidity.
