I think regulations should come a bit from the government and a lot from the parent.
Doing without is an important value I want to transmit to our kids, and to live out as a parent. What's the point in limiting advertising to kids if the parents are always going out and getting the newest, cutting edge, stuff without restraint.
Avoidance is a good approach, but it can't be the only one. Eventually, a parent needs to teach the child to think critically (probably not at age 3) about the messages that are presented before them so that they can make their own decisions.
