Children’s digital playgrounds have evolved from commercialized digital spaces such as websites and games to include an
array of convergent digital media consisting of social media platforms, mobile apps, and the internet of toys. In these
digital spaces, children’s data is shared with companies for analytics, personalization, and advertising. This article
describes children’s digital playgrounds as a data assemblage involving commercial surveillance of children, ages 3–12.
The privacy sweep is used as a method to follow the personal information traces that can be expected to be disclosed
through typical use of two children’s digital playgrounds: the YouTube Kids app and Fisher-Price Smart Toy plush animal
and companion app. To trace the data flows, privacy policies and other publicly available documents were analyzed using
political economy and privacy informed indicators. This article concludes by reflecting upon the dataveillance and commercialization practices that trouble the privacy rights of the child and parent when data assemblages in children’s digital
playgrounds are surveillant.
