    It's amazing how much money companies spend on marketing, as McDonald's is infamous for making it obvious they target kids. After all, look at Ronald McDonald.

    Here's something interesting, though.

    My 8 yr old daughter just pointed out something which she noticed a while ago about the new Wendy's girl.

    See if you can catch it. It's somewhat subliminal. I didn't catch it at all. Perhaps it takes a kid's perspective to see it? I don't know.

    Yes, the hidden message that's really not hidden.

    These companies are targeting customers, not just kids. Get the children in, the parents will follow. Companies know very few parents today tell their children "no", and they work that angle.

    We have an awesome public park in the city I live in, and I'd rather take my daughter there than to a fast food joint that has a ball-room.

    We used to cut the butter box to make it a flap and glue the knees behind it.
    Peek-a-boo! Now that I'm older, the real things are much better.

    It was for me.

    I always thought the redesign made "her" look older but I couldn't figure out why. :confused:

    The pic I gave makes it "easier" to notice. It's not as obvious in this pic because of the contrasting colors.

    Where does it say "MOM" in this logo? I've never seen it.
