38 Per Cent of US Toddlers Have Used a Mobile

38 per cent of children aged under two years in the US have accessed media through a mobile device, up from 10 per cent in 2011.

Thats according to research from Common Sense Media, which also found that 72 per cent of all children – those aged eight or under – have used a mobile in this way.

Meanwhile, the proportion of children who use mobile devices on a daily basis is 17 per cent, up from eight per cent two years ago, with their average time spend rising from 43 minutes in 2011 to 67 minutes.

While TV still sees the biggest daily time spend, this has dropped by 12 minutes in the last two years to 1 hour 55 minutes a day. Overall, daily time spend with screen media has seen a drop of more than half an hour.
